WebTech Wireless Telematics Solution Chosen by Coach Canada-A Stagecoach Company-for Improved Asset Utilization

Over 750 drivers to benefit from automated driver logs and in-cab communication

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a provider of location-based and fleet Telematics services, today announced that Coach Canada, a Stagecoach company, will implement the WebTech Wireless Quadrant™ system, an advanced vehicle-based Telematics solution using GPS tracking on the GSM/GPRS network.

The Quadrant system configuration for Coach Canada includes the WT6000 Locator™ coupled with the WebTech Wireless mobile data terminal (MDT). The WT6000 records data for periodic transfer over the GSM/GPRS network and is able to receive over-the-air upgrades of parameters such as route geofences. The MDT enables over 750 full time and part time drivers to log-in with individual driver ID's enabling accurate, automated driver log compliance for Transport Canada and the United States Department of Transport (USDOT). In the U.S. some coach operators have received Homeland Security grants for vehicle tracking systems.

Integration with Coach Canada's existing AS400 business systems platform includes custom forms and reporting that combine data from the WT6000 Locator, the MDT and the AS400. Extensive trials were conducted to ensure the data integration was beneficial for daily use by operators as well as management.

"Many so-called Telematics solutions just provide a dot on a map, which adds very little business value," said James J. Devlin, President, Coach Canada. "The WebTech Wireless Quadrant system integrates with our business and provides the management information we need to run the business most effectively. We can make better decisions about fleet utilization and deployment to better serve our customers, identifying areas of cost-saving and reducing the administrative time spent on compliance issues such as driver logs."

"We designed and built our Quadrant system to have maximum flexibility across a variety of industries, which makes it simple to achieve the level of integration required by Coach Canada," commented Anwar Sukkarie, WebTech Wireless President and CEO. "The bus and coach industry worldwide is one of the many transport segments where WebTech Wireless is experiencing success."

Coach Canada is a subsidiary of the Stagecoach Group. Stagecoach Group operates 2,800 buses and coaches in North America and 7,000 in the United Kingdom.
