Officials of onboard fleet management solutions XATA Corporation said the company has completed work in implementing support for the new Hours-of-Service rules.
"Our customers face not only the challenge of understanding the impact of the new regulations on their business, but also upgrading their systems and training their staff by the January 4, 2004 deadline. It is our goal to work closely with our customers to make the transition to the new rules as painless as possible," said Eric Witty, Director of Product Management.
Product updates are provided to customers as part of their support and maintenance contracts. This Hours-of-Service update will allow all current XATA customers to continue to manage driver logs electronically, as well as continuing to get other benefits such as reduced fleet operating costs, increased productivity and improved customer service, said Witty.
