Webtech Wireless Improves Productivity and Safety for Dement Construction09:00 EDT Wednesday, April 18, 2012VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 18, 2012) -Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces the successful deployment of Quadrant® for Dement Construction providing them with increasing productivity while at the same time improving driver safety.Based in Jackson, Tennessee, Dement Construction has been building highways and completing heavy construction projects in the southeastern United States since 1977. Dement Construction mounted a large monitor in their office allowing all drivers to view Quadrant Manager. With equal access, everyone could see Quadrant Manager's real-time vehicle updates in a public space. Drew Newmon, Office Manager, reports that since putting up the display, "trucks get there and back a lot faster. Everyone knows that they are visible on the map and every person is equally accountable for where they are." Using Quadrant Manager, Drew is now better able to keep up with their drivers without having to call or talk to them on their cell phones. "This increases our driver safety and keeps Dement Construction in compliance with Tennessee regulations that forbid drivers to be on cell phones while driving." "Dement Construction is a perfect case of how Quadrant solves multiple problems for customers delivering value across the organization. We look forward to helping Drew Newmon and Dement Construction solve additional challenges and create more value from their investment in Quadrant", said Harald Fritz, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing of Webtech Wireless.
