MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XRS Corporation (formerly Xata Corporation) (Nasdaq:XRSC), the leader in mobile fleet optimization software, announced today that it will reprise its successful user conference for a second consecutive year. The XRS User Event (XUE) will be held Aug. 18-20, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis and will feature a lineup of impressive keynote speakers and presenters, building on the educational sessions held during the first XUE in August of this year.

"After an immensely successful first XUE, we are thrilled to host a second conference for our users," said Jay Coughlan, chairman and CEO of XRS. "The sold-out event was a smashing success, and left us feeling energized like never before. We're carefully considering all of the feedback we have heard from trucking executives, fleet managers, dispatch managers, operations directors, IT staff and more in order to make XUE 2013 even bigger and better. It'll be a challenge, but we're working to top the first user event and our two major announcements: our new XRS name and new all-mobile platform."

XUE is the premier event for users of XRS' solutions and others in the trucking industry who want to learn how to thrive in today's tough economic environment. Focused on fleet optimization, compliance and the trends affecting the trucking industry, the event will feature an extensive education program, including presentations by industry experts and many of the leading companies with whom XRS partners. The event also provides members of the community with an outstanding opportunity to meet, socialize and share success stories. XRS team members will be on hand to answer questions, offer advice and interact with users to learn more about how XRS can better meet their needs.

During the inaugural XUE, XRS made two major industry announcements: the company's name change from Xata Corporation to XRS Corporation, and the introduction of a revolutionary all-mobile platform for trucking compliance, performance and fleet optimization, also called XRS.

Sponsorship and registration information for XUE 2013 will be available in December. Those interested can check www.xueconference.com for updates on registration, speakers and other announcements. They may also sign up for email alerts regarding the conference at the website.
