XRS Corp. announced that Verizon is the official wireless provider for the company’s new collaboration with Samsung Telecommunications America. The new product – NXT – creates an integrated mobile device and software package designed specifically for the trucking industry.
The new solution brings together powerful XRS compliance and performance tools with Samsung Mobile’s innovative and powerful mobile devices. Now, NXT is powered by Verizon's 4G LTE network.
NXT, which is available immediately, allows drivers and fleets to purchase select Samsung Mobile devices with an XRS trucking intelligence software subscription and ready for activation on the Verizon 4G LTE network. The first device available is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0.
NXT also offers integration with many enterprise transportation products. Over time, the platform collaboration will expand to introduce additional components, including MDM and wearable products.
The XRS trucking intelligence platform operates in both over-the-road and private carrier configurations, and is suitable for fleets of all sizes. XRS runs on certified smartphones, tablets and handhelds that transmit vehicle and operator data through the cloud to a fleet management dashboard, helping companies to comply with current regulations and soon the pending Electronic Logging Device mandate for electronic recording of a driver’s hours-of-service.
Nearly 90% of drivers already use mobile devices while on the job.
