XATA Corp. is rolling out a new series of fleet-performance management (FPM) applications, along with a new onboard computer, to enhance its offerings to the for-hire trucking market. The new products will be introduced over the next year, the vendor said. A trailer tracking and reporting tool is scheduled for release in late 2009, followed by electronic, graphical driver logs for the for-hire market in early 2010. Later next year, XATA plans to unveil a complete reporting and analytics package as part of its FPM for-hire suite of products. The company's new, non-proprietary onboard computer, supplied by mobile-communications partner Digi International, will allow it to provide a compact, ruggedized unit that will deliver communications and navigation technology currently available on XATA's MobileMax platform. It will offer a significant boost in processing power, XATA added, along with an enhanced array of communications specially designed to meet the needs of the for-hire market. The new platform will offer electronic driver logs, trailer tracking, configurable dashboards and fleet analytics, among other optimization tools.
