Platform 
Release Includes New Trip Management, Form Editing, IFTA Fuel Tax
Features, and a Host of Other Performance and Scalability
Enhancements  
MINNEAPOLIS, MN  -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 --  XRS Corporation
(NASDAQ: XRSC), a leading provider of mobile trucking intelligence
solutions, has announced its latest software release, which debuted
Sunday, June 22. The new features and enhancements include the debut
of XRS Trip Management, automated IFTA filing, upgrades to FLX Forms
editing and overall system performance -- each designed to help
fleets and drivers execute their daily operations more efficiently
and effectively. 
The release includes many valuable portal, mobile, web service and
integration advancements that dramatically improve compliance
readiness, performance measurement and overall effectiveness of
operational monitoring. 
"XRS users are already redefining the industry in how they interact
with customers, improving the overall experience and building unique
methods to differentiate their services using smartphones and
tablets," said Brendan Reidy, president, chief operating officer and
chief technology officer for XRS. "These new and enhanced offerings
from XRS are yet another way that fleets can easily improve levels of
customer service, help drivers meet tight delivery schedules and give
fleet managers the data they need to cost effectively manage their
businesses." 
XRS Trip Management 
Trip Management is a set of capabilities used to manage trip-based
workflows and the unique reporting needs for fleets that run regular
routes. The functionality was built to give fleets the data needed to
enhance driver productivity and customer service, maximize asset
utilization, slash costs, and deliver when expected. XRS Trip
Management imports routes from third-party routing packages, creates
routes from scratch, and processes planned vs. actual data as a route
is completed. The XRS mobile app gives detailed insight into stops
and activities, providing an easy way to capture progress and
delivery information as driver's progress through their day. 
IFTA Fuel Tax Reporting 
XRS automatically detects jurisdiction crossings and generates data
for meeting quarterly International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)
requirements. Beyond simple data collection and reporting, XRS
provides a vastly simplified "print, sign, send" service for 45 of 48
U.S. IFTA reporting states and all Canadian provinces, putting data
into official state forms and freeing fleets from time-consuming
paperwork. This capability streamlines the entire IFTA filing
process, while providing a detailed data trail to ensure compliance
and preparation in case of audit. This release of IFTA allows fleets
to satisfy Q3 2014 filing requirements quickly and easily. 
FLX Forms 
The process for creating two-way structured communication between
dispatch and driver is now even more flexible. When adding a new form
message, intuitive options give more configuration power to the
designer. This release adds easier steps for form organization, field
grouping, field repetition and overall layout and design
configuration. Drivers can quickly and easily capture signatures,
pictures, and delivery information using their smartphone, tablets,
or rugged hand devices. 
Additional Enhancements 
- Additional French and Spanish language support in mobile interfaces
for ESL drivers 
- Improved reliability and scalability to the XRS cloud-based
infrastructure 
- Faster overall performance, with an emphasis on accelerated report
generation 
- Reduced time to apply driver log edits and unassigned vehicle
activity 
- Improved ability to manage large file imports such as site imports
or fuel files 
- Improvements to optimize driver experience on the XRS mobile
application on both Android and Windows devices 
- An enhanced driver payroll report with variance highlighting and
additional activity data 
- Improvements to over speed event alert formatting 
- A driver log web service enabling integration with driver log
events, duty status changes, annotations, vehicle associations, and
other driver log data 
"XRS is committed to continuous improvement of its products, and this
release represents another step in that process," said Jon Van
Winkle, XRS vice president of product management. "Our goal is to
give our customers the most powerful, scalable tools and insights
available, using the tablets, smartphones and rugged handhelds that
drivers and fleet managers are already carrying. This XRS release is
a major step forward in enabling integration with powerful routing
and dispatch systems, and we know it will have a tangible impact on
our customers' business operations and mobility needs."
