AUSTIN, Texas—June 27, 2017—Xplore Secures New Rugged Tablet Order from Independent Provincial Corporation in One of Canada’s Most Populated Regions AUSTIN, Texas—June 27, 2017— Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) today announced that a provincial organization in one of Canada's largest provinces is upgrading to an Xplore XSLATE R12 rugged tablet based solution for property assessments. The provincial authority has used Xplore F5m rugged tablets in the field for the last seven years. An initial order is currently being fulfilled through Xplore’s partner Island Key Computers. The assessment authority will also equip its assessors with Xplore’s docking stations, auto adapters, and rugged tablet carrying cases to maximize the XSLATE R12’s ease of use in the field.
The provincial organization is responsible for performing property assessments across a massive swath of territory in Canada, including several remote areas. It requires a completely reliable mobile solution to manage information-intensive activities from multiple field locations. The Xplore XSLATE R12 enables the agency’s property assessors to consistently fulfill their mandate in developing and maintaining real assessments and information, even in the most remote locations of the province. The 12.5” rugged tablet’s brightest-in-class 800 Nit View Anywhere display also allows for easy day-and-night viewing of detailed data sets.
“Data integrity is of the utmost importance in the development and maintenance of government records, such as the property assessments managed by this long-time Xplore customer,” noted Mark Holleran, president and CEO of Xplore. “The XSLATE R12 is not only the fastest and most powerful rugged tablet on Earth, but it’s also one of the most versatile mobile computers on the market today. Its transformational 2 in 1 design not only boasts the high-performance data capabilities that government agencies demand, but the complete computing functions that their most mobile workers need to meet productivity expectations while on the road.”
But those aren’t the only reasons the customer chose to upgrade to the XSLATE R12. The assessors need a lightweight device that is consistently reliable in the field and capable of surviving extreme weather conditions, especially the long rainy seasons typical in this Canadian region. They also need a battery capable of lasting during long trips to the province’s most remote areas. The Intel®-powered XSLATE R12 is well-prepared to not just survive, but thrive, in these demanding work environments. It’s equipped with an onboard camera, pen and touch capabilities that enable assessors to complete more data-intensive tasks with complete accuracy. The standard hot-swappable battery powers mobile workers through long shifts in the field, while built-in 4G LTE and GPS satellite communications technologies keep assessors connected no matter how far from the office they travel.
