Xplore Receives Second Follow-On Order In Six Months From Major Telecommunications Provider As Ongoing Multi-Million-Dollar Rugged Tablet Deployment Expands To New User Group

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:XPLR) today announced that it has received yet another purchase order - its fourth since 2014 - from one of the nation's largest telecommunications service providers.  This order for Xplore XSLATE B10 fully rugged tablet PCs and accessories brings the total value of this multi-year, multi-million-dollar project to now more than $19 million. Xplore partner Prosys will configure and ship the XSLATE B10 tablets to this new group of field-based end-users beginning in November 2016.

The telecom operator began equipping thousands of Cable Splicing Technicians across the United States with Xplore rugged tablets in 2014 and 2015. Most recently, they placed a follow-on $1 million order for Xplore Bobcat and XSLATE B10 fully rugged tablets in May 2016 to support the customer's growing workforce mobility demands. With this newest order, hundreds of Outside Placing Technicians within the telecom service provider's Construction & Engineering Group will also be empowered to complete critical workflows while in the field using XSLATE B10 rugged tablets.
