AUSTIN, TX - June 1, 2016 - Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s broadest range of high-quality rugged tablet computers, announced today it has secured an additional order for its Xplore Bobcat and XSLATE B10 fully rugged tablet computers from a major telecommunications provider. The telecommunications provider deployed the Bobcat and XSLATE B10 tablets in 2014 and 2015, and recently placed a follow-up order, bringing the total number of Bobcats and XSLATE B10s to more than 7,000 tablets. The additional $300K purchase order of Bobcats, B10s, and accessories is for the company’s southwest region to accommodate new hires.
The tablets are used by field service technicians in the construction and engineering divisions, who are responsible for building the company’s network. Cable splicers and their managers use the tablets on-site when attaching cables to equipment and splicing both copper and fiber cables together. With the Xplore Bobcat and Xplore B10 rugged tablets, technicians can perform a number of tasks, such as accessing and electronically editing and annotating work prints, time reporting, ordering facility reports and supplies, and obtaining GPS driving directions.
“The additional orders from this telecommunications customer proves that both the Bobcat and XSLATE B10 are ideal mobile technology platforms for field technicians,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore. “Both are certified for 4G LTE usage around the world, providing field technicians with the mobility and reliability required for critical telecommunications business operations.
