Mighty Digital and Kapsch partnered in 2019 in pursuit of building a spin-off company called Uproad. Uproad’s mission is to deliver next-generation mobile tolling applications for the US consumer market (B2C). Based on GPS location tracking, the app provides a more modern and innovative user experience to calculate toll pricing, receive toll alerts and pay for tolls for any given route across the US. Uproad also serves the toll authorities by owning the customer relationship, de-risking the cost of transactions (leakage), providing more transparency and better customer support along the way.
Mighty Digital is the lead agency, managing a 50 person team in a multi-vendor/ multi-component structure addressing all the complexity of the product. Tolling is also a very complex and fragmented industry, with unique business rules for each toll authority. Uproad has integrated with multiple toll authorities across the US to incorporate these business rules, logic and transactional exchange and validation. Additionally, the core of Uproad’s offer is a tolling detection algorithm that captures and validates user tolls based on geolocation data. We accomplish this all by leveraging best-in-class solutions, microservices in a cloud-native architecture, all while being friendly and straightforward to the end-user.
