Xata Corp., a provider of fleet optimization software and services, announced a reseller partnership with SpeedGauge, a commercial vehicle GPS data provider for speed tracking and analysis. The addition of SpeedGauge to the Xatanet application suite will be available in late spring to new and existing Xatanet users. SpeedGauge’s solutions help fleet operators identify high-risk driver behavior and manage fuel economy, making the technology complementary to Xata’s fleet performance management solutions.

“Because speeding can greatly impact fleet operations cost and overall safety, customers want and need this functionality,” says Tom Flies, senior vice president of product marketing for Xata Corp., based in Minneapolis. “By listening to our customers, we are able to constantly evolve our solution. Working with such top third-party application providers as SpeedGauge is an excellent way to include capabilities that take the guesswork out of compliance and promote safety.”

“Our shared vision of providing superior fleet performance information to fleet management will make for a great partnership with Xata,” says Robert Reid, co-founder and executive vice president of SpeedGauge. “Our comprehensive speed data and analysis will give Xata customers more visibility into their drivers’ behavior – information that will result in an overall better-run fleet.”
