XATA and SpeedGauge Partner to Provide Enhanced Speed Data for Increased Safety

MINNEAPOLIS, March 4 - XATA Corporation (Nasdaq: XATA), a leader in fleet optimization software and services, today 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.

Speeding is a concern for fleet managers and their insurers because it not only indicates unsafe driver behavior, it also results in poor fuel economy and increased vehicle maintenance. SpeedGauge's solutions help fleet operators identify high-risk driver behavior and manage fuel economy, making the technology the ideal complement to XATA's fleet performance management solutions.

"Because speeding can greatly impact fleet operations cost and overall safety, customers want and need this functionality," said Tom Flies, senior vice president, product marketing, XATA Corporation. "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," said Robert Reid, co-founder and executive vice president, 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."
