WebTech Wireless Signs Three-Year Quadrant® Contract Extension with the Port of Long Beach

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 6, 2011) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services and telematics technology, announces that it has been awarded a three-year contract extension for its Quadrant® fleet management solution by the Port of Long Beach, California.

The initial application service provider (ASP) contract was awarded in July 2007 for the deployment of 600 WebTech Wireless Locator devices in trucks using the Port. The new contract extends the agreement to January 1, 2014, and focuses on providing ongoing services for these vehicles.

"This contract extension with the Port of Long Beach demonstrates that we're delivering quality service and support to our customers," said Scott Edmonds, WebTech Wireless' President and CEO. "It also demonstrates the real value our Quadrant solution provides organizations, such as the Port, to address a wide range of environmental, security, and public safety compliance needs."

Quadrant is an innovative technological solution that the Port of Long Beach is deploying in support of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Trucks Program – a major California air quality improvement initiative. The Program provides financial assistance for truck operators to replace or upgrade their trucks with low-emission engines, provided they meet certain Program requirements, such as operation only within California. Quadrant GPS/GPRS Locators installed in each vehicle transmit location and diagnostics data to the web-based Quadrant Manager, which helps the Port monitor Program compliance, as well as miles driven, idling, and fuel consumption, enabling the Port to quantify the pollution avoided and determine the cost-effectiveness of the Program.
