XRS Unveils New Integration With McLeod Software

Integration Between XRS Mobile Platform and McLeod's LoadMaster Application Results in Increased Productivity for Dispatchers, Drivers and Fleet Operators

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - September 15, 2014) - XRS Corporation (NASDAQ: XRSC), a leading provider of mobile trucking intelligence solutions, announced a new integration between its mobile platform and McLeod Software's LoadMaster application, allowing users to streamline communication and access critical information in real time.

Using web services from XRS Corp., McLeod's LoadMaster module now works in concert with the XRS mobile solution. XRS collects critical data -- such as hours of service, vehicle locations, and arrivals/departures -- which are then fed directly into LoadMaster. This seamless integration gives Loadmaster users more tools within a single application, simplifying the fleet management process.

"McLeod's dedication to top notch products and stellar customer service shine in this integration," said Jon Van Winkle, vice president of product management at XRS Corp. "With truck location and driver hours-of-service data integrated into the LoadMaster app, fleet operators can feel confident their teams are in sync. This collaboration reflects our shared vision to equip drivers and fleet managers with the best tools available, delivered right to their smartphones and tablets."

XRS' mobile platform offers an intuitive user interface and innovative functionality for day-to-day operations and compliance. The app requires no up-front hardware costs, generating an immediate return on investment.

"We are excited that our customers can take full advantage of XRS' detailed HOS and arrival data in the LoadMaster dispatch application," said Robert Brothers, manager of product development at McLeod Software. "The integrations lead to safer, more profitable fleets through better customer service, reduced clerical time, and optimized fleet resources. McLeod and XRS are committed to bringing tightly integrated solutions to the market for our mutual customers."
