A New Kind of Convoy: XRS to Launch Driver Xperience Board
Panel will kick off with a driver-only event at Churchill Downs during the
Mid-American Trucking Show
MINNEAPOLIS, March 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XRS Corporation, (formerly
Xata Corporation) (Nasdaq:XRSC), today announced that it will launch its
Driver Xperience Board – a "listening panel" made up of truck drivers from
diverse segments of the industry – with a special event during the
Mid-American Trucking Show (MATS), Thursday, March 21 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
While fleet managers and logistics experts may make big-picture choices about
technology implementation, it's the drivers themselves who are in control of
daily decision-making and interact most closely with in-cab technology
products like XRS.
The purpose of the Driver Xperience Board is to listen to the driver and
understand how life on the road impacts the solutions that technology
companies offer. XRS plans to leverage feedback from the Board to develop and
implement driver-focused features for its XRS mobile fleet optimization
platform, which is now available for sale.
"We believe in listening to the driver, the person with hands on the wheel and
a real knowledge about how things work on the road," said Ryan Barnett,
director of market development for XRS. "Our goal has always been to develop
products that make life easier and better for the driver, and we are excited
to get valuable input from our Driver Xperience Board members who are willing
to share their honest opinions."
The XRS Driver Xperience Board kicks off its first meeting with a driver-only
event at Churchill Downs during the largest annual heavy-duty trucking show in
the world. The inaugural meeting will include dinner and door prizes, and XRS
will provide transportation – so participants can let someone else do the
driving for a change.
Drivers interested in attending can sign up at http://xrs.tv/driverboard
anytime before March 21.
