RESTON, VIRGINIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2008) - Wireless Matrix Corporation (TSX:WRX) signed its tenth Electric Cooperative customer, increasing the total subscribers in this market to more than 750 in less than one year of marketing to this growing market segment.

Wireless Matrix's solution includes wireless broadband devices coupled with its FleetOutlook application suite, which combines real-time vehicle mapping, reporting, alerting and data integration with outage management and in-cab navigation products. FleetOutlook puts easy-to-use tools in the hands of dispatch and operations personnel tasked with maximizing service levels and overall fleet efficiency.

FleetOutlook is pre-engineered for integration with industry-leading outage management solutions to reduce complexity with delivery and shorten the time required to realize quantifiable savings. One co-op published that it saves more than 30 minutes per outage with the real-time location-based services available through the FleetOutlook integration.

"Increasingly in this time of sky rocketing fuel prices, cooperatives are realizing the benefits of real-time communications and vehicle tracking integrated with their internal systems to save time and money, " said Michael Jakab, Wireless Matrix vice president of sales. "The pre-configured solution minimizes risk and allows the end user to begin seeing benefits within a couple days of installation."
