Taptopia Launches Fleet Management Pilot in Major US Cities

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 12, 2010) - Taptopia, Inc. , a subsidiary of Metiscan, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MTIZ), announced today that Taptopia has launched its Fleet Management pilot in major US cities, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. Taptopia has pilot agreements in place with two of the most recognized convention shuttle bus operators in the United States.

Show managers contract operators to shuttle their attendees between convention centers, hotels and other event related facilities. These events require tens of thousands of buses per year nationally. There are only a few key operators that service the majority of this market, two of which Taptopia has agreements in place for its pilot.

"This is a specialized market that is in need of a fleet management solution," commented Bryan A. Scott, President & CEO of Taptopia. "Today operators manage their buses using radios and a promise that the driver provides their true location when paged. With the Taptopia provided solution, the operators can globally see all of their assets on an Internet based map and more efficiently optimize their routes."

For more information about Taptopia's fleet management event service please contact Mike Foster at 972-479-8822 or sales@taptopia.com.
