Xplore Technologies Corp. Selects Waggener Edstrom Worldwide To Promote Its Rugged And Industrial Tablet PCs

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world's most powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablet in the market, selected multiservice communications agency Waggener Edstrom Worldwide (WE) to build and share the Xplore story with key audiences, which include utilities and telecommunications, oil and gas, warehousing and distribution, and military markets.

"We look forward to sharing our story further through our partners at Waggener Edstrom," said Jim Plas, Xplore Technologies vice president of marketing, "Waggener Edstrom's deep roots in technology and innovative communications, combined with their local base in Austin, will help us grow our business in priority markets. Our partnership comes at a critical time, when we are expanding our capabilities and portfolio to enable our customers to be more efficient, timely and secure with their work regardless of their environment."

Austin is an important hub for the agency's Technology Practice, and the Xplore business is an example of WE's continued growth in this market. With a tenure of nearly 13 years in the region, a growing employee base and experience with Texas-based technology clients such as GameStop, 3M, Mozido and Texas Instruments (TI) DLP®, the WE Austin team is well equipped to share Xplore's story.

"Xplore has an innovative story to tell through its rugged tablet portfolio," said Cheri Winterberg, general manager of Waggener Edstrom Austin and vice president of the Technology Practice. "Our companies share a passion for emerging technologies that change the way people engage and work. We will be helping Xplore execute new and creative campaigns in 2013 to reach the mobile worker."

As a leading provider of rugged tablet PCs, Xplore makes products that enable individuals to access, input, process and manipulate data from anywhere in the field while withstanding extreme conditions and environments. Xplore tablets are dust- and submersion-proof, safe for hazardous environments, can withstand a seven-foot drop while operating, and offer a superior sunlight-readable display.
