WebTech Wireless Expands Quadrant® Implementation With Kuwait Oil Company

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announced that the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has again selected WebTech Wireless' Quadrant® solution for expansion of remote vehicle management in their fleet. This latest implementation includes more than 500 vehicles, bringing total KOC installations to-date to well over 1,000 vehicles of all types. KOC leases vehicles from Automak Automotive Co. and KGL Car Rental.

KOC's Quadrant® solution includes Wi-Fi enabled WT5800 Locators™ that allow fleet managers to remotely obtain vehicle odometer and speed data when vehicles pass KOC depots and filling stations. With this information, managers can improve efficiency and safety by detecting and controlling excessive speeding and reducing unnecessary mileage, which also helps preserve vehicle resale values.

A unique feature of the implementation is that, unlike most fleet management systems, KOC does not collect actual vehicle location records – as a condition of the company's employee privacy policy. Another requirement, to further increase the safety and security of their fleet, was the installation of Driver ID Kits, which permit vehicle operation only by an authorized driver.

"We're seeing that the oil and gas industry worldwide has very unique fleet management requirements that can vary considerably by region and operating environment. The solution provided to the KOC with a WLAN connected WT5800 Locator and Driver ID Kits, once again demonstrates our ability to provide customized solutions to companies such as KOC, as well as work with multiple organizations to exceed customer expectations," said Harald Fritz, VP Sales Quadrant Fleet Solutions, WebTech Wireless.

This latest sale underscores WebTech Wireless' commitment to meeting the specialized needs of the oil and gas industry worldwide.
