Xplore Technologies Invests in Customer Service and Expands Worldwide Service Organisation

SYDNEY, Australia, Jan. 27, 2017 -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:XPLR) today announced that it has completed a significant expansion of its global support and service organisation in line with its growing global customer base. Over the last 12 months, the company has added four new Service Depots, three new Authorised Service Providers, and more than 10 toll-free numbers to connect rugged tablet customers in every region with the Customer Care Center for technical support and warranty processing.

Noted Brett Gross, Xplore ANZ Director Sales and Marketing commented "Xplore is the most experienced rugged tablet manufacturer in the world today and the only OEM to have exclusively engineered rugged tablets for 20 years. But were not just a rugged tablet company. Nor do we just sell a commodity. We provide a long-term service as part of our partnership commitment to customers. Although Xplore rugged tablets fall well below industry averages for annualized failure rates, we support our customers in many capacities long after the last rugged tablet has been deployed. That's why we continually evaluate the performance of our service organisation and invest resources as necessary to ensure we exceed customer expectations every time".

Xplore's recent worldwide service organisation enhancements include:

The addition of four new Service Depots

  • Marknet was appointed as a new Service Provider in Australia 
  • Paragon Bay was appointed as a new Service Center in Canada 
  • PCZ (Pegatron EU) began repairing Xplore products 
  • MGI was appointed as a new Service Provider for Latin America

The implementation of new Authorized Service Provider (ASP) agreements and the completion of ASP quality training in Germany;
  • IBIT in Switzerland 
  • YATOO in France 
  • EXTRA in Germany

The addition of 10 new toll-free numbers that will quickly connect callers worldwide with their assigned Customer Care Center for immediate support. Xplores customers know that we will always commit the necessary resources to meet their standards of success, whether were called upon to help them train end-users, solicit feedback from the field, turn on new features, or fine tune the entire mobility solution. As a global company, we know that we must have several teams and the right level of expertise on the ground around the globe to sustain our local service agility. It is our priority to provide customers with excellent turnaround times and quality of service.
