Driving Intelligence: XRS Develops Industry's First Integrated Fleet Platform 
for Compliance and Performance 
Innovative, Comprehensive Solution From XRS and Samsung Mobile Will
Be the First of Its Kind in Trucking, Providing Industry's First Free
Compliance Solution Pre-Loaded With XRS 
MINNEAPOLIS, MN   -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 --  XRS Corporation,
the leader in trucking intelligence, announced today during its
annual XRS User Event (XUE) in Minneapolis that it is working with
Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) to develop
an integrated mobile device and software package designed
specifically for the trucking industry. 
The new solution will bring together powerful XRS compliance and
performance tools with Samsung Mobile's industry leading and
high-performing mobile devices. The collaboration will allow drivers
to receive select Samsung Mobile devices that will come with XRS
trucking intelligence available for download. The integrated solution
is expected to be available later this year.  
"We have a responsibility to ensure all drivers and fleets are
compliant, and it's our goal to make compliance accessible,
convenient and easy to use for everyone on the road," said Jay
Coughlan, chairman and chief executive officer of XRS Corporation.
"Samsung Mobile and its devices are on the leading edge of this
revolutionary movement, and we are proud to be working together to
bring these best-in-class mobile solutions to market." 
The Samsung Mobile devices will be equipped with Samsung for
Enterprise (SAFEâ„¢) enhanced security features, specifically
configured to ensure every user's mobile workforce has
enterprise-focused IT policy controls, mobile device management
protocols, virtual private network connectivity and on-device
encryption. The Samsung Mobile SAFE program ensures enterprise mobile
security for businesses, regulated and non-regulated industries. 
"Enterprise customers have increasingly unique requirements by line
of business for both company owned and bring-your-own-device (BYOD)
users," said Tim Wagner, vice president and general manager,
enterprise business unit -- Samsung Mobile USA. "The onboard trucking
solution to be provided by XRS and Samsung is a fantastic example of
how we are working closely with our rapidly growing ecosystem of
mobile solution providers to meet specific customer needs." 
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 no additional hardware
costs associated with the XRS platform. Furthermore, XRS Corporation
has partnership agreements with several leading brands in mobile
communications. 
"Our industry is just now starting to realize the incredible
potential of mobile computing to improve the bottom line for fleets
and drivers alike," said Christian Schenk, senior vice president,
product and market strategy for XRS. "With this new, integrated fleet
solution, the entire trucking industry can rest assured that their
drivers and operations staff will always be in communication, in
compliance and in the process of delivering value to customers."
