MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — XRS Corp. (formerly Xata Corp.) has created a hands-on Road Science Lab at its Minnesota headquarters, where customers and prospective customers can visit to try the XRS platform on all its compatible mobile devices.
“Trucking operators across the country wanted a single location where they could view all of the device options for running the new XRS platform, so we created a one-stop shop where they could review and actually try all the possibilities,” said Christian Schenk, senior vice-president of strategy and market growth for XRS Corporation. “The Road Science Lab is a comprehensive showcase of the power and productivity available to fleets with the newest and fastest mobile devices and wireless networks.”
The XRS platform runs on more than 50 types of mobile devices, transmitting vehicle and operator data directly to a management dashboard. Since nearly 90% of drivers are already using a mobile device, XRS Corp. says there is no additional hardware costs associated with its platform.
“Our Road Science Lab is more than just a product display,” said James DeSocio, executive vice-president of field operations for XRS. “It allows our customers and technology partners to see how XRS can be tailored to meet the specific needs of different vertical industries, using a wide range of devices and networks.”
