Tell us about Axon Software!

Axon Software is the ONLY trucking company software that is totally integrated in realtime, meaning that information entered anywhere in the system automatically and instantly updates your dispatch, billing, driver pay, fuel management, fleet maintenance and accounting with a single entry. With over 38+ years of experience in the trucking software industry, we can slash your trucking company's admin work in half to get you paid faster, keep drivers happier and file fuel reports with the push of a button, all while cutting down the stress of running your business.

Over the years Axon has diversified its corporate portfolio to include a Fuel Compliance division eTrucks and most recently the acquisition of STEALTH Media, which also includes a full-service branded merchandise facility — marketing that generates massive results for your business — advertising, websites and video productions that sell.

What is Axon Software's proudest achievement?

We are proud of our sustainable growth year over year through economic turmoil, recessions and global pandemics. We pride ourselves on hiring the best and brightest staff and retaining them — we have very little turnover and a ton of staff that have been employed here for 10+ years.

How has Axon Software adapted during the pandemic?

Axon was able to adapt very quickly to these pandemic conditions as we already had a very good work from home process. The pandemic certainly helped us refine our Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and remote capabilities, which in fact made our company stronger and more efficient.

What’s one thing Axon Software cannot function without?

Our reliable and quality employees and a good sustainable IT infrastructure.

Why do you love working in Saskatchewan?

Saskatchewan offers a unique central hub to Canada and the U.S. Our industry for all our divisions is predominantly North American driven, so it does help play a factor being in the Silicon Valley of the Prairies.

What does the future of Saskatchewan tech look like to you?

Business as usual! We continue to grow and expand our companies and continue to provide industry-leading software products, marketing and support in anything we do.

How does Innovation Place help you thrive in Saskatchewan’s tech sector? (We had to ask!)

Innovation Place has helped us in building a trustworthy and sustainable IT infrastructure that helps our clients meet the demands and needs of their growing companies.
