Edgetech International Inc. has executed an agreement with XS Capacity to provide a mobile solution for its server-based load management program. According to the companies, there are currently three joint marketing deals in the works (J.B. Hunt, Cargomaster.com and National Association of Small Truckers), and each would have at least two releases (beta, Implementation).
The new product, the XSC Loadmaster Edge, will be designed to enable truckers and trucking companies to have constant access to the XS Capacity server-based software platform. The XS Capacity online open marketplace links the entire ground freight industry to any shipping organization, whether less-than-truckload or truckload.
The product uses a mobile Internet device called the PC Edge designed to deliver high-speed Internet access, displaying full HTML Web pages, graphics and Java script. The PC Edge offers a desktop Web experience with a full QWERTY keyboard, access to Office Suite of programs, 50 GB storage and Remote PC access.
“The XS Capacity relationship is an example of our differentiation from other competitive products in delivering custom solutions to meet specific vertical market requirements,” says Lev Parnas, Edgetech chief executive officer. “Our ability to provide mobility to these types of business applications is one of our strategic business plan objectives.”
