About Zonar

Driving Technology. Fueling Efficiency. Empowering People.

Founded in 2001, Zonar had one simple idea: That electronically verified inspections could revolutionize the way pre- and post-trip inspections are conducted. By doing so, we could increase safety for everyone on the road and minimize the risk of on-the-road breakdowns.

Since its inception, Zonar has grown in size and scope to become a leading provider of complete technology solutions for smart fleet management. We’ve achieved that status by consistently innovating on technology that helps our customers and partners operate more efficiently across industries and verticals.

Zonar’s Promise: Effective and Innovative Solutions

No other company in our market provides the complete smart fleet management solutions Zonar does. We call it “customer-driven ingenuity” because our products emerge from a productive partnership with our customers. We are committed to maximizing the assets of fleet companies by delivering ground-breaking products that result in big savings across maintenance and operations for our fleet partners.

The Right Solutions For You

Zonar’s telematics solutions stack provides the necessary components to deliver a complete platform. These solutions range from maintenance to track and trace software as well as software to manage business efficiencies to fuel efficiencies; to ridership visibility solutions and other ridership solutions. Our award-winning platform keeps fleet owners and managers connected to their fleets and drivers to dispatchers.

Innovative Technology

Zonar’s solutions are innovative while remaining affordable by design. We provide what many have come to know as a traditional telematics platform, but our telematics data is only the beginning of Zonar’s keys to streamlining your fleet management. From our patented Electronic Verified Inspection Report (EVIR®) system that revolutionizes how drivers conduct pre- and post-trip inspections, to the 2020® mobile communications tablet – the industry’s most versatile mobile telematics device, to our Ground Traffic Control (GTC) fleet tracking software, to our revolutionary ZFuel fuel tracking application, with Zonar, you can be confident that we have poured our personal, professional and business investment into each solution to ensure your success.

Affordable By Design

Our integrated solutions are developed with the idea of eliminating the middleman and markups that get between our partners and us. This allows us to pass on the savings to our partners, who use them to run their businesses more efficiently.

People First

We know how much customer service matters. Technology is great, but who do you talk to when you have questions? Our motivated Customer Care team has earned customer loyalty by consistently exceeding expectations.

Our investment in our people is part of our promise to provide the best overall experience for our customers. We have a core foundational value that people are what matters. It is why we believe in hiring the best we can because that’s how we provide the best possible solutions, products and customer care to our partners. And that’s why we’re committed to keeping our roads, the roads we share with families and others, as safe as we can.
