WebTech Wireless Announces First Sales to Alberta's Oil & Gas Industry Under the NelTrak Partnership

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 30, 2009) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of location-based and fleet telematics services, announces that it has confirmed a number of sales through NelTrak, the oil and gas industry partnership between NelCorp Inc., Foster Park Baskett Insurance, Noralta Technologies, Rogers Communications, and WebTech Wireless. The confirmed sales are to companies specialized in oil field support services operating in western Canada.

WebTech Wireless' telematics solution component provides fleet managers in the oil and gas sector with highly accurate and customizable vehicle tracking and location mapping, messaging, dispatch and maintenance capabilities, all of which increase efficiency and reduce operational costs, as well as ensure that these companies meet and exceed government safety and environmental standards, such as Alberta's Lone Worker Safety regulations. NelTrak's solution includes worker panic and man-down devices and radio frequency cut-off switches when explosive conditions are detected. The oil and gas industry presents unique vehicle and workforce management challenges as mobile resources are often required to operate in very remote and hazardous conditions.

Commenting on the recent sales, Harald Fritz, Senior Director ASP Sales and Services, said, "It's clear that even in the face of a challenging economic climate for Alberta's oil and gas sector, service companies are realizing that our technology and the combined resources of the NelTrak partnership can help them significantly reduce their operating costs and increase workplace safety. These are the first of many sales we see occurring in the near future as the recessionary pressures on the industry ease and these companies and others look to meet the increasing demand for oil field services. Our optimism is also reinforced by the results of trials now underway with a number of Fortune 100 oil and gas companies."

"The early success of NelTrak and our Oilfield Fleet Services Package is largely due to the ability of each of our partners to come to the table with innovative solutions to the industry's needs. We've brought together technology, logistics, administrative and business expertise in a unique package tailored to the oil and gas industry, and they've begun to respond very favourably," said John Dover, President, NelCorp Inc. and co-founder of NelTrak.

The success of NelTrak underscores WebTech Wireless' commitment to providing custom made solutions for a variety of industries that depend on efficient and effective mobile resource management.
