XRS Mobile Fleet Optimization Platform Debuts In Limited Release

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XRS Corporation, (formerly Xata Corporation) (Nasdaq:XRSC), the leader in mobile fleet optimization software, today announced the company's new XRS system, the trucking industry's first and only complete mobile platform for compliance and fleet optimization, is now available in limited release.

The new XRS mobile platform runs on more than 50 types of devices and automatically transmits vehicle and operator data directly to a management dashboard, providing compliance with the new MAP-21 compliance mandate for recording hours-of-service. Nearly 90 percent of drivers already have mobile devices in use, meaning there are no additional hardware costs associated with the XRS platform, and XRS Corporation has partnership agreements with the leading brands in mobile communications in both the U.S. and Canada.

"Mobile technology is taking fleet optimization to new heights of efficiency and flexibility, and XRS is the first comprehensive software solution created exclusively for mobile devices," said Jay Coughlan, chief executive officer of XRS Corporation. "Expensive, hard-wired on-board displays are rapidly disappearing, while mobile technology is poised to help thousands of transportation innovators create customized, flexible fleet management systems with almost immediate return-on-investment."

With XRS, there are no up-front hardware costs and no capital requirements. The subscription-based monthly service is expected to start at $39 per vehicle per month. Every XRS package includes an XRS Relay in-cab device that communicates via Bluetooth with the driver's existing smartphone or tablet.

"The beauty of a 'bring your own device' platform like XRS is the ability to share the benefits of tracking mobile compliance and performance data simply and efficiently, across any platform," said Christian Schenk, senior vice president – strategy and market growth for XRS. "Whether you're using fleet-purchased tablets or driver-owned devices, the most important thing is capturing the data in the most affordable and convenient way, and then sharing and analyzing information to stay safe, maintain compliance and slash costs."
