XRS Partners With Capella Learning Solutions to Develop Innovative Customer
Industry Leader Capella Learning Solutions Will Develop the XRS
Learning Lab to Boost Customer Knowledge
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/13 -- XRS Corporation,
(formerly Xata Corporation; (NASDAQ: XRSC)), the leader in mobile
fleet optimization software, announced today that it has retained
Capella Learning Solutions to develop learning courseware that will
enable customers to realize the full potential of its newest software
platform, XRS. The courseware comprises the new, online XRS Learning
Lab that focuses on fleet managers and drivers.
"The way people learn is dramatically changing and we have reflected
that in our XRS Learning Lab," said Jay Coughlan, chairman and chief
executive officer of XRS Corporation. "No longer do fleet managers
and drivers want to sit in seminars, page through manuals or watch
endless YouTube videos. They want to access training and support
anywhere, anytime, using any device. We've built the XRS Learning Lab
on these same principles." Coughlan said that XRS selected Capella
Learning Solutions as its partner because of Capella's curriculum
design, outcomes-based learning and speed to competency.
Capella Learning Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Capella
Education Company, develops and operates high-quality, online
learning institutes in select industries. The company's focus is to
provide integrated online learning solutions for high-stakes
applications that drive strategic results.
"Capella understands that people learn differently and there is no
one-size-fits-all approach to learning. Too often in this industry,
we have seen customer learning treated as an afterthought. We are
making it a forethought," said Scott Meyer, chief marketing and
strategy officer of XRS Corporation. "We are impressed with Capella's
powerful interactive e-learning platform and its ability to engage
learners. With the XRS Learning Lab, our customers will be able to
run XRS faster and with better, more meaningful results than any
other platform that's available today."
XRS is the first company in the trucking sector to deliver learning
programs through an online, interactive format. Beginning in the fall
of 2013, XRS customers will be able t
o access the XRS Learning Lab
through smartphones and tablets, as well as a web browser, 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with XRS to provide its customers
rapid, easy access to learning and offer effective knowledge transfer
and performance improvement," said Kevin Gilligan, chairman and chief
executive officer for Capella Education Company. "Because Capella is
focused on delivering online learning, we have developed a very
advanced and powerful learning platform that will undoubtedly give
XRS customers a distinct advantage."
