Webtech Wireless Announces $2.1 Million Contract with City of Mississauga

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 15, 2014) - Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announced a $2.1 million contract extension with the City of Mississauga to deploy the Webtech Wireless Fleet Center™ GPS/AVL fleet management solution.

The City of Mississauga has signed a 5-year contract with two optional one year contract extensions for Webtech Wireless' winter operations and fleet monitoring solutions. The contract includes deployment of Webtech Fleet Center™, along with technology upgrades valued at approximately $500,000; Winter Light Up, a winter program that ensures fleet preparedness before winter season; monthly licensing of Webtech 511, North America's first GPS/AVL mobile app for citizens; and Webtech Fleet Center's Advanced Route Completion and Live Service Map Reporting features.

Earlier this year, the City of Mississauga deployed and launched 'Mississauga Roads', a mobile app for citizens powered by Webtech 511. The mobile app provides residents with status updates of winter operations within each neighbourhood and displays the location of snow plows as they travel their routes. Residents are able to view weather forecast, receive updates from City Hall, and follow relevant twitter feeds to keep up-to-date on any critical road conditions. 'Mississauga Roads' is available for download on smartphone or tablet devices through Google Play and iTunes App Store.

"The City of Mississauga first implemented our solutions over 5 years ago in public works, parks and recreation, and road maintenance vehicles. By expanding their services to include winter operations and fleet monitoring solutions, the City of Mississauga will experience a more efficient, optimized and transparent fleet operation," says Webtech Wireless' Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Pete Callaghan. "Our key differentiator is the ability to provide enhanced fleet management solutions to customers with a variety of fleets. The City of Mississauga implementation is another excellent example of Webtech Wireless' ability to deliver high value full fleet solutions."
