XRS to Debut New Fleet Solutions at NPTC Conference

XRS to Debut New Fleet Solutions at NPTC Conference 
Customized Workflow and Trip-Management Modules -- FLX and TRP --
Arrive for XRS Mobile Platform  
MINNEAPOLIS, MN  -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 --  On the heels of
debuting its complete mobile platform for fleet optimization, XRS
Corporation (formerly Xata Corporation) (NASDAQ: XRSC) is launching
new application features designed to boost productivity and
compliance among fleet carriers. 
This week, the company will unveil two new performance modules for
its XRS mobile application -- FLX (pronounced "flex") and TRP
(pronounced "trip") -- within its industry-first mobile fleet
management platform. XRS will showcase the new technology at the
National Private Truck Council (NPTC) annual conference in
Cincinnati, April 28-30. Demonstrations of the XRS platform will be
available during the NPTC conference in the XRS booth #404.  
"Even before we debuted our new XRS platform, we had been looking for
ways to leverage the power of mobile technology for the benefit of a
wide variety of carriers, many of which require a high degree of
flexibility," said Christian Schenk, senior vice president of product
and market strategy for XRS Corporation. "With our new FLX and TRP
modules, fleet managers can make XRS work even harder for them,
saving time and money with customized, scalable route and workflow
management applications." 
The FLX module will allow fleets to build their own driver workflow
and mobile data attributes, simplifying data collection, load
assignments, route planning, POD forms, OS&D validation and any other
functions the carrier needs monitored or tracked. FLX also includes
signature and image capture capabilities for fast mobile data
collection, authorization, proof-of-delivery and acceptance of terms. 
The TRP module will help fleets manage trips with a single,
comprehensive application, with "planned vs. actual" reporting that
allows fleets to view deviation from a planned route and accurately
project up-to-the-minute ETAs as drivers progress through a trip. TRP
also features real time ETA and route deviation monitoring for both
fleet managers and drivers, enabling real-time vehicle activity to be
tracked automatically against planned routes. TRP will integrate with
many industry-leading route syste
ms, such as Roadnet, Ortec and
Appian. 
The new XRS mobile platform, which entered general release in March
2013, 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. 
The FLX module is now available to current XRS customers, while the
TRP module will be available in 2014. Existing Turnpike customers
will begin the transition to the new XRS mobile solution on a
scheduled basis, facilitated by XRS customer care representatives and
aided by its customers' familiarity with mobile technology. 
Monthly pricing for the XRS mobile fleet optimization platform is $39
per subscription. To sign up or learn more about the XRS platform and
