Upgraded XATANET software helps fleet operators increase vehicle visibility.
XATA will deliver these improved capabilities by leveraging Microsoft(R) Virtual Earth(TM) maps, which gives XATANET customers a host of additional maps for vehicle tracking and provides additional geographic tracking capabilities for fleet operators. Microsoft Virtual Earth also pulls geographic data directly from the Web for up-to-the-minute vehicle tracking, ensuring that customers have instant access to the most updated data on their vehicles.
"We ensure our products and services use the most advanced technology available because we know it makes a difference to our customers," said Tom Flies, senior vice president, product management, XATA Corporation. "With XATANET 4.3, we are delivering more intelligent mapping capabilities, which translates to increased fleet visibility and cost savings for all of our customers."
XATANET 4.3 includes a new mapping user-interface that provides enhanced ease-of-use benefits, such as keyboard shortcuts and real-time map updates.
Mapping enhancement highlights include:
-- Draggable maps, which enable users to quickly pan and see a broader view of the highlighted geographical area, giving an enhanced view of a vehicle's location.
-- Increased customization, which allows users to include information specific to delivery routes.
-- Increased map visibility, with the ability to show road detail, aerial photographs, or both.
-- Improved GPS positioning controls for more accurate delivery and pickup location information.
-- Increased capacity to handle more data points and more accurate map details.
