One For The Road: XRS Mobile Fleet Optimization Solution Now Widely Available

Stocks in this article: XRSC

LAS VEGAS, March 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XRS Corporation, (formerly Xata Corporation) (Nasdaq:XRSC), debuted its new XRS product, the trucking industry's first and only complete mobile platform for compliance and fleet optimization. The company announced at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Conference today in Las Vegas that the XRS product is now available for sale, with shipment during the second quarter of the calendar year. Demonstrations of the new XRS product are available during the TCA conference in the XRS booth #402. The XRS product had been available to a limited number of customers beginning in January 2013.

"The future of trucking compliance, fleet efficiency and road science is portability and convenience – the mobile phone or tablet that goes where the driver goes," said Jay Coughlan, chairman and chief executive officer of XRS Corporation. "We have a legacy of experience with our pioneering first-generation mobile tool – Turnpike – and we are building on that heritage with our new XRS mobile fleet optimization technology."

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, preparing for compliance with the pending MAP-21 compliance mandate for recording hours-of-service. Nearly 90 percent of drivers already use mobile devices, 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.

More than just EOBR software, the new XRS mobile communications solution combines all the features and benefits of the leading fleet management platforms in a single package. Additionally, XRS is working with industry-leading fleet technology partners – including TMW Systems, McLeod Software, BOLT, ProfitTools and RoadNet Technologies – to ensure seamless compatibility and full functionality with the new XRS mobile platform.

"Our industry is only starting to talk about the impact of mobile applications on fleets and drivers, but we are leading and shaping this trend that will benefit fleets and drivers because we've already built a wireless infrastructure to support XRS," said Christian Schenk, senior vice president of product and market strategy for XRS Corporation. "The mobile revolution is accelerating at breakneck speed, with federally-mandated EOBR rules making electronic logs the law of the land. XRS offers fleet owners the lowest cost of entry and most robust performance of any other software available today."
