VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 4, 2013) - Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces that it has partnered with the office of Byron Brown, the 58th mayor of the City of Buffalo, to launch the telematics industry's first fully integrated mobile application for road status-Buffalo Roads. Available for Apple, Android and Windows platforms, the application is a free download, providing citizens with instant information on road conditions, including when the street was last plowed, and other valuable traffic and news information.
"I thank Webtech Wireless for partnering with my administration on the Buffalo Roads Mobile Application. This app will allow the City of Buffalo to provide timely road conditions and other information to our residents when bad weather occurs. The application is the latest, cutting edge technology that is being utilized by the City of Buffalo to assist motorists in having a safe commute," said Mayor Brown.
Municipalities across North America face a daunting challenge: keeping their constituents informed in real-time about what services are being delivered, particularly during storm alerts or harsh weather periods. Running on any iOS or Android device, Buffalo Roads is a multi-faceted application that that solves this challenge. Built on Webtech Wireless' InterFleet solution, the application provides real-time visibility into city fleets, while also showing up-to-date weather, traffic, cameras, and other city information. Windows Phone and desktop users get the same fabulous benefits through a custom website that delivers an optimized user experience no matter what the end user platform. Buffalo Roads builds on existing municipal communications infrastructure, allowing the City of Buffalo to deliver today and tomorrow, exactly what its constituents are asking for. The Buffalo Roads app is the first deployment of our new Webtech Wireless application service.
"Our vision is to make it easy for our customers to deliver Fleet Intelligence Anywhere™ to their key stakeholders," said Scott Edmonds, President and CEO of Webtech Wireless. "The Buffalo Roads application shows the leadership of Mayor Brown in leveraging our vision to deliver information to his citizens. We applaud Mayor Brown on this vision and delivery of North America's first real-time roads application."
