Allied Automotive Group Chooses New XRS Mobile Platform For Fleet Optimization

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XRS Corporation, (formerly Xata Corporation) (Nasdaq:XRSC), the leader in mobile fleet optimization software, today announced that they have been working with Allied Automotive Group, which selected XRS's mobile fleet optimization platform to improve efficiency and compliance. Allied, one of North America's largest vehicle transporters, will fully implement the platform this year and will be the first automotive carrier to use the XRS system, the trucking industry's only complete mobile solution for compliance and fleet optimization.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Allied Automotive Group," said Jay Coughlan, chairman and chief executive officer of XRS Corporation. "We are proud to be associated with a forward-thinking company that realizes the immense business potential for new, mobile-ready road science tools like the XRS platform."

Allied is implementing XRS on seven-inch Samsung Galaxy 2 tablets connected to a 4G LTE wireless network. The devices are part of the Samsung SAFE group, which represents the family of Samsung Enterprise solutions that include the necessary security and feature enhancements suitable for business use and keep company data secure. Drivers are able to access satellite imagery of destinations, message other drivers with status updates, communicate with dispatchers, capture photos and other capabilities that Allied can tap into to provide valuable new services to their customers. This technology will allow the Allied industry-leading central dispatch system to move to the next level.

Allied owns the largest and most diverse vehicle transport fleet in the industry, with an extensive network that spans the North American continent. As the finished vehicle marketplace builds new momentum and industry projections indicate a significant shortage of carrier capacity on the horizon, Allied's infrastructure, fleet diversity and commitment to technology place the company in an advantageous market position. Implementing the new XRS mobile platform is a significant step toward business growth.
