ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢ rugged, mobile PC consolidates complete office functionality into a single, connected mobile device.

ST. LOUIS ā€” ESCORT Inc. (, designer and manufacturer of the worldā€™s best premium automotive accessories, is presenting two of its new products at the NAFA 2012 Institute and Expo Show (National Association of Fleet Management/Managers) this week in St. Louis ā€“ the multi-award winning ESCORT Liveā„¢ real-time ticket protection network and ESCORTā€s first ever Mobile Business PC for fleet and business operators, ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢.

SmartOffice consolidates complete office functionality into a single, lightweight, internet connected SPRINT 3G/Bluetooth/WIFI connected mobile device.

ā€œIt is widely known that ESCORT provides the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market,ā€ said ESCORT President and CEO John Larson.

ā€œNow we have expanded our line of premium automotive accessories by offering our new ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢ connected mobile PC solution for the millions of fleet and owner/operator service providers who need office tools on the go.ā€

ā€œSmartOfficeā„¢ allows fleet and mobile service providers to access files, conduct point-of-sale transactions (POS) in the field and importantly, conduct their business right in the field, anytime and anywhere they are called.ā€

ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢ is much more than another rugged, mobile PC. ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢ rugged, mobile PC consolidates complete office functionality into a single, connected mobile device.

Based on familiar Microsoft Windows 7 OS and complete PC functionality, SmartOfficeā„¢ includes navigation, point-of-sale credit card processing, fleet vehicle management, remote inventory/CRM management, barcode/RFID reader, reverse camera option and fleet transportation/logistics monitoring.

SmartOfficeā„¢ gives drivers and service providers all of their office tools fast, with accurate business solutions, delivered right where they need them ā€“ in the field, in real time.

In addition to presenting its new fleet management products on the NAFA show floor in St. Louis, ESCORT will also be featuring its multi-award winning ESCORT Liveā„¢ ā€˜social network for the roadā€™ (booth # 815).

ESCORT invites NAFA fleet managers and show attendees to experience a personal demonstration of ESCORT Liveā„¢ā€˜s real-time threat and information sharing.

ā€œESCORTā€™s position and reputation as the leading innovator and provider of the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market is undisputed,ā€ said Larson.

ā€œWeā€™ve raised that bar with Escort Liveā„¢ and continue to redefine ā€˜driving smarterā€™ with new technologies like ESCORT SmartOfficeā„¢.ā€

ESCORT has seen its highly successful multi-award winning ESCORT Liveā„¢ ticket protection network continue to receive national accolades and awards.

In addition to being included in Edmunds ā€˜Top Ten New Productsā€™ list, ESCORT Liveā„¢ has also been named a CES 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering Award winner as well as ā€˜Best New Mobile Productā€™ at SEMA.

ESCORT Liveā„¢ uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord Liveā„¢ cords and a unique app for the driverā€™s smartphone.

When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Liveā„¢ ā€œcloudā€ and then broadcast across the ESCORT Liveā„¢ network, notifying drivers of potential ticket threats.

In addition to network alerts, the new smartphone app technology provides ESCORTā€™s industry-leading DefenderĀ® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as ESCORTā€™s patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.

Unique to the radar detector ticket protection category is the ESCORT Liveā„¢ communityā€™s real-time national reach and scale. Currently there are more than 1 million ESCORT and BELTRONICS ESCORT Liveā„¢ compatible radar detectors in use throughout North America.

Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and millions of driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Liveā„¢ drivers.
