XRS Delivers Trip Management and IFTA Enhancements to Trucking Intelligence
Release Includes New Trip Management, Form Editing, IFTA Fuel Tax Features, and
a Host of Other Performance and Scalability Enhancements 
MINNEAPOLIS, MN --(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) -  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
- 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
- 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."
