MINNEAPOLIS - XATA Corp., a leader in fleet software and services, 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 are designed to help fleet operators identify high-risk driver behavior and manage fuel economy.

"Because speeding can greatly impact fleet operations cost and overall safety, customers want and need this functionality," said Tom Flies, senior vice president of product marketing for XATA Corp.

"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 for 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."

XATA Corp., based in Minneapolis, specializes in optimizing truck-fleet operations by reducing costs and ensuring regulatory compliance. XATA software solutions are offered through a monthly-subscription service. XATA Turnpike, a division of XATA Corp., provides PDA-based fleet management capabilities.
