MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – XRS Corporation announced its latest software release this Sunday. The new software was designed to help fleets with their day-to-day operations, with the debut of the XRS Trip Management, automated IFTA filing and upgrades to FLX forms editing.
The company claims this new software will dramatically improve compliance readiness.
“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.”
The XRS Trip Management is a program used to manage trip-based workflows. It imports routes from third parties and creates routes from scratch. The XRS mobile application allows managers to see their drivers’ progress and stops throughout their trips. The system also streamlines the IFTA filing process by automatically detecting jurisdiction crossings and generates data for the quarterly IFTA requirements.
Enhancements include more language support on mobile interfaces (French and Spanish), faster overall performance and reduced time to apply driver log edits.
“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.”
The mobile application can be run on more than 50 types of mobile devices and automatically sends vehicle data to a management dashboard.
