WebTech Wins Bid with City of San Francisco

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 6, 2005) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WEW), has won a second major municipal bid in California with a contract to deploy Quadrant™ Fleet Management products and services in over 400 San Francisco City and County public works service vehicles. The system will be used by the City's Public Works Department to manage their fleet's service performance using Quadrant's real-time location reporting and comprehensive vehicle management reports.

The San Francisco Department of Public Works was looking for a reliable, high-quality solution that would allow them to monitor their fleets in real-time to improve their customer responsiveness and service levels. WebTech's Quadrant system filled this need by providing the location of each vehicle instantly-tracking every turn made on the City's streets. WebTech's comprehensive location-based reports also provide a wide range of information that can be used to maximize operating efficiencies.

"We need immediate access to information about how our fleet is operating so we can best manage our resources and prioritize our work," said Mohammed Nuru, Deputy Director of Operations for the San Francisco Department of Public Works. "The System allows us to make our work transparent to the citizens of San Francisco while providing a high degree of accountability though cross-departmental integration, permitting various fleets including street sweepers, dump trucks and backhoes from four separate operations bureaus within the Department of Public Works to utilize WebTech's reporting capabilities."

"The City of San Francisco is the latest significant government account to have selected WebTech Wireless for fleet management services," said Anwar Sukkarie, President and CEO of WebTech Wireless. "This win is indicative of our leadership position and confirms our ability to address large growth opportunities. Our products and services add tremendous customer value that ranges from location-based services to seamless back-end integration, while providing an architecture platform that allows for future growth."
