Webtech Wireless Announces $2.3 Million Contract With Maryland State Highway Administration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 28, 2015) - Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announced that in a distribution partnership with a Fortune 100 US wireless carrier, has entered into a $2.3 million agreement to implement a GPS/AVL fleet management solution with Maryland State Highway Administration (Maryland SHA), powered by Webtech Wireless.

Maryland SHA will be deploying the Webtech Wireless' GPS/AVL fleet management solution in over 2300 vehicles, each with a multi-year subscription licence plan. The deployment includes a combination of both Maryland SHA and third-party contractor vehicles. The solution will enable Maryland SHA to monitor snow plow material usage, manage highway contractors, and gain visibility into real-time location and vehicle activity. In 2013, Maryland SHA launched a pilot program that involved deployment of Webtech Wireless' solution in 15 vehicles. The success of the pilot program has resulted in the expansion of the GPS/AVL fleet management solution to include the entire winter fleet operation.

"We are thrilled to have Maryland State Highway Administration join our growing family of government agencies using the Webtech Wireless solution. Our solution has proven successful in providing comprehensive fleet information on material usage, live tracking, integration with third-party spreader controllers and vehicle location," says Webtech Wireless' Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Pete Callaghan. "We know government agencies require detailed fleet data to ensure efficient fleet operations. With this solution, Maryland State Highway Administration will be able to monitor state-owned and third-party vehicles; ultimately ensuring accurate material usage, maintaining accountability, and running an optimized fleet operation."

Webtech Wireless provides a premium GPS/AVL fleet management software as a service (SaaS) solution. Delivered through a single platform across an entire fleet, the solution provides advanced fleet intelligence which enables government agencies to improve transparency, accountability, and efficiency, while reducing liability. The Webtech Wireless solution services a range of industries with fleets and assets of all types, and is designed with flexible and scalable features to adapt to the unique needs of government fleet operations.
