XATA Corp., a provider of onboard fleet management systems for private carriers, announced that it was awarded a contract for the deployment of 1,400 systems into the fleet of a major government agency.

XATA said Monday, Dec. 12 that it was selected for its ability to transform fleet intelligence into bottom-line results by reducing fuel costs, improving driver productivity and increasing on-time delivery performance. XATA, which did not name the government agency in its press announcement, has begun deploying systems under this contract and expects completion in mid-fiscal 2006.

“This major contract win further demonstrates the momentum XATA is gaining with fleets of all sizes and vocations,” says Craig Fawcett, chairman and chief executive officer of Minneapolis-based XATA. “Ease of use, flexible product configurations and a history of delivering bottom-line results are just a few of the reasons fleets continue to choose XATA as their partner in fleet management.”

XATA systems are designed to automatically collect, transform and deliver fleet intelligence throughout the enterprise in an interactive, exception-based format — unifying all aspects of the fleet to set and achieve higher standards for efficiency, productivity, utilization and customer service. XATA integrates onboard computing, wireless communications and GPS technologies with software applications to deliver a total fleet management solution.
