Wireless Matrix Deploys Fleet Management Solution With Key Cable Operator

Company will deploy Wireless Matrix's 360 Degree Mobile Resource Management solution in 215 service vehicles.

RESTON, VIRGINIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2008) - Wireless Matrix (TSX:WRX) announced today that it has signed an agreement to deploy the company's FleetOutlook 360 Degree Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solution with the mid-west region of a key cable Multiple System Operator (MSO). Wireless Matrix currently provides Mobile Resource Management services to other regions of this MSO.

Under the agreement, this MSO region will deploy Wireless Matrix's solution on 215 service vehicles for total visibility of fleet resources. In total, this key MSO has 3,800 subscribers across various regions utilizing Wireless Matrix's 360 degrees MRM solution to automate certain dispatching processes, minimize distracting phone calls and improve safe operating practices for field resources.

With total visibility across fleet operations, the cable MSO has increased productivity without sacrificing safe operating practices. Greater efficiencies with installation and service work translate into higher customer satisfaction - a critical aspect of this competitive business.

"As competition increases for the consumer triple-play package including voice, broadband and entertainment services, operators are seeking increasingly sophisticated management tools to drive service efficiency and narrow the delivery window with on-time performance," said J. Richard Carlson, president and CEO of Wireless Matrix. "Wireless Matrix's 360 degrees MRM solution provides operators with mission-critical location-based services and data delivery, enabling other internal systems to become GPS-enabled. It's the interoperability of combined systems that creates a competitive advantage for early adopters within this competitive space."

Delivered on a hosted, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis, FleetOutlook is a comprehensive 360 Degree MRM solution, backed by 24x7 support, which enables the full value chain of dynamic schedule planning and execution. From vehicle mapping, tracking and operational reporting to XML data export and optional telematics monitoring, FleetOutlook maximizes productivity and reduces cost.
