MINNEAPOLIS – XATA Corporation has released the next version of its fleet operations software, XATANET 4.3. The new features and enhanced tools offer fleet managers a clearer view of the day-to-day operations of their fleets to improve vehicle utilization and performance. This release also delivers enhanced mapping capabilities and customer-defined reporting.

"The new components of the upgraded XATANET help companies reduce costs and create efficiencies — key savings at any time, but particularly in today's economy," said Tom Flies, senior vice president, product management, XATA Corporation.

In addition to the enhanced mapping and customer-defined reporting tools, XATANET 4.3 also includes the following new features:

 Two new reports, a Driver Fuel Analysis Summary report and Fleet Utilization Summary report, which provide management easy access to important fleet data. 

Additional Point of Delivery (POD) functionality that delivers both POD and XATANET on a single, handheld device.

New dashboard option that allows XATANET users to view idle time during a route, excluding all other non-trip time.  This new reporting option allows fleet managers to monitor the driver's impact on vehicle idling.

Four new Smart Checks and Exceptions, which help gauge actual-vs.-planned leg time and stop time.

Enhanced data capture, which provides fleet managers increased visibility on fuel economy changes.
