Cadec Launches Mobius Insight: New Fleet Intelligence Application Expands Business Visibility and Management of Delivery Operations

Add-On to Flagship Mobius TTS Solution Provides Web-Based Dashboards, Alerts, KPI Metrics, Scorecards and Analysis to Fleet Managers; From the 2008 Foodservice Distribution Conference & Expo (IFDA 2008 - Booth 401)

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2008) - Cadec Global, a leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions, today launched Mobius Insight, a new add-on feature to its flagship Mobius TTS™ solution that provides intelligence to help trucking fleets monitor driver behavior, improve safety and reduce costs. Cadec will demonstrate Mobius Insight™ at this week's 2008 Foodservice Distribution Conference & Expo (IFDA 2008 - Oct. 12-14 in Pittsburgh, Penn.), at Booth #401.

Mobius Insight provides pre-configured dashboards for transportation executives on:

--  Safety - Speed, sudden decels, DOT violations, etc.
--  Customer Service - On-time deliveries; delivery temperature; Over,
    Short & Damaged (OS&D) deliveries, etc.
--  Compliance - Hours of service, other DOT and state regulations
--  Maintenance - MPG, RPM, asset utilization, etc.
--  Cost - Idle time, out-of-route miles, laden/unladen miles, etc.
    

All of the data is collected using Cadec's On-board Computers (OBCs) and DeliveryTracker™ software. Dozens of dashboard views are included, such as safety score cards for individual drivers. Real time alerts can be automatically sent to managers, customers and drivers via text messages and email. Speed-by-road-segment and other selected trip exceptions can be animated using an optional virtual ride-along mapping component.

Mobius Insight is powered by a new partnership with Blue Sky Technologies, Inc., a real-time supply chain visibility software provider, and is one of several new additions to Cadec's Mobius TTS 4.0, available to customers beginning this week. Others include:

--  New built-in mapping software for up-to-date, detailed location and
    route information;
--  Enhanced security features including WPA2 encryption; and
--  The ability to look up customer account information from the Cadec
    OBC.
    

Cadec CEO Michael Baney noted that Mobius Insight is the result of months of intense work and numerous conversations with customers about what they need to run their businesses more efficiently.

"Cost pressures are intense right now in the trucking industry," said Baney. "When we reached out to customers for feedback on the next version of Mobius, what we heard loud and clear was that they need hard data that will help them make better business decisions. Mobius Insight addresses those needs very specifically, with business intelligence and exception management that translates all the critical data that fleet managers require into actionable business information." Baney added that feedback from the first Mobius Insight customer, a large grocery store chain, has been extremely positive.

Mobius 4.0 and Mobius Insight are available immediately. For more detail, see Cadec at IFDA 2008, Booth 401, or visit www.cadec.com.
