Improving Truck Driver Recruiting

Blendyd Studios is a company focused on bringing high-tech, mobile-first, automated solutions to truck driver recruitment. According to CEO Morgan Williams, “We are transforming the industry by making hiring fast, easy, and streamlined.”

The company automates manual tasks in recruitment processes, leveraging automated and customized text messaging to make the candidate experience more seamless, and integrating with a company’s existing email and scheduling tech stack to make the process more efficient for candidates and recruiters.
