Mobile Fleet Optimization Platform
February 1, 2013 - Products
XRS Corp., formerly Xata Corp., announced the company's new XRS system, a complete mobile platform for compliance and fleet optimization, is now available in limited release.
The new XRS mobile platform runs on more than 50 types of devices and automatically transmits vehicle and operator data directly to a management dashboard, providing compliance with the new MAP-21 mandate for recording hours of service.
Nearly 90% of drivers already have mobile devices in use, meaning there are no additional hardware costs associated with the XRS platform, and XRS Corp. has partnership agreements with the leading brands in mobile communications in both the U.S. and Canada.
With XRS, there are no up-front hardware costs and no capital requirements. The subscription-based monthly service is expected to start at $39 per vehicle per month. Every XRS package includes an XRS Relay in-cab device that communicates via Bluetooth with the driver's existing smartphone or tablet.
XRS is currently in limited release, with general availability expected in spring 2013. Pricing and package levels will be announced prior to general release.
