XRS Corporation, a provider of mobile trucking intelligence, announced that its new integration with TMWSuite from TMW Systems is now available to customers. XRS made the announcement at TMW’s annual TransForum User Conference held in Anaheim, California.
The XRS integration with TMWSuite gives drivers and fleet managers new tools for order planning and managing order status from a single, combined fleet management platform.
“XRS has a long-standing relationship with TMW Systems and we are thrilled to be continuing our work together to develop new solutions that serve the changing needs of today’s trucking industry,” said Christian Schenk, senior vice president, product & market strategy of XRS Corporation.
The integration with TMWSuite offers additional convenience and efficiency to planners and dispatchers by displaying information provided by XRS, such as vehicle locations and remaining on-duty service hours, for monitoring dispatch activities in a single application screen.
“The integration with XRS gives our customers another affordable option for enhancing their dispatch operations,” said Scott Vanselous, executive vice president of marketing, TMW Systems. “We are proud to be working with XRS to help our customers continue to extract value from their in-cab and back-office IT investments.”
XRS runs on certified smartphones, tablets and rugged handhelds that transmit vehicle and operator data through the cloud to a fleet management dashboard, allowing companies to comply with the pending MAP-21 mandate for electronic recording of a driver’s hours-of-service. Nearly 90 percent of drivers already use mobile devices, meaning that there are no additional hardware costs associated with implementing the XRS platform. XRS Corporation also has partnership agreements with the leading brands in mobile communications.
“Our industry is just beginning to realize the immense potential of mobile trucking intelligence to improve the bottom line for fleets and drivers alike,” Schenk said. “TMW Systems is on the leading edge of turning this potential into tangible benefits for its customers and XRS is thrilled to be working with such a forward-thinking partner.”
