Xata recently announced that it plans to release version 4.0 of its web-based Xatanet fleet operations optimization tools on October 6. According to the company, the 4.0 version, which is designed to interface with non-proprietary devices, will provide fleet users with streamlined system management, instant notification of critical events, an enhanced view of day-to-day operations performance, increased security and an accelerated return on investment. The new version will also offer enhanced support for third-party in-cab displays and handheld devices.
Version 4.0 of Xatanet features more than 14 enhancements in all, including: user-configurable Smart Checks to send critical data and performance alerts to key personnel via email, phone or pager; an Exceptions function, to track ongoing operational events and identify performance levels outside user-defined limits; Learned Standards to gather and store long-term aggregate data from an entire fleet; and XataScope to allow fleet managers to track, capture and report on vehicle speed data.
"We're pleased to bring an increased level of performance and functionality to our customers," said Tom Flies, senior vp of product management. "Xatanet 4.0 not only offers enhanced recording and analytical tools for fleet managers, it provides a clear path for our OpCenter customers to upgrade to the Xatanet platform."
