WebTech Wireless Wins Bid with Commonwealth of Kentucky

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 16, 2006) -

WebTech Selected Through State Solicitation Process

WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WEW), a leading supplier of mobile telematics has won a contract for wireless fleet management services for the Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Corrections prisoner transport vehicles. The Department of Corrections has deployed WebTech's a state of the art vehicle tracking system for accurate real-time location information of their prisoner transport vehicles - knowing exactly where each vehicle is at any given time.

"The Commonwealth of Kentucky was looking for a reliable, high-quality solution that would allow us to monitor prisoner transport vehicles as well as improve the safety and security of our officers," commented James M. Schomig, Deputy Commissioner, Commonwealth of Kentucky. WebTech's Quadrant system was evaluated against other company's products through the Commonwealth's procurement process, and was found to offer the best value and performance against all other submissions.

"With several government accounts complementing our installed customer base, the Commonwealth of Kentucky's selection of WebTech firmly establishes the relevance of our solution for government applications large and small," said Anwar Sukkarie, President and CEO of WebTech Wireless. "True of all fleets is the strong need to manage assets as efficiently as possible - something our solution was designed to address," added Sukkarie.

Future rollouts for the Commonwealth of Kentucky may involve deployment in Parole Officer vehicles, allowing the Officers to file reports and have them location and time-stamped for a higher level of efficiency and accuracy.
