WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, announces that the City of Saint John, New Brunswick is expanding their current InterFleet(R) implementation to include an additional 100 vehicles - a contract valued at over $100,000. The city currently has both WebTech Wireless' InterFleet(R) government fleet solution deployed on over one hundred public works vehicles, as well as the NextBus(R) real-time passenger information system on over fifty of the city's buses.
Commenting on the sale, Owen Moore, COO at WebTech Wireless said, "We're of course very pleased that Saint John has chosen to expand the use of our solution to the majority of their public works fleet. We've found that once municipalities, like Saint John, have had a chance to use InterFleet(R) and see what it can do, they look for ways to expand its use to as much of their operation as practical. That's where InterFleet's great flexibility and adaptability really shines, as it's a solution that is applicable to virtually every type and scale of government fleet."
As Canada's oldest incorporated city and New Brunswick's largest municipality, the city of Saint John has been providing municipal services for more than two centuries. The city's fleet consists of approximately 350 vehicles of all types, including public works vehicles, transit buses, police cars and fire equipment.
This latest sale underscores WebTech Wireless' commitment to providing custom made solutions for a variety of organizations that depend on efficient and effective mobile resource management.
