Webtech Wireless Introduces Additional 3G Devices and Solutions

06:00 EDT Thursday, July 18, 2013

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 18, 2013) - Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces the immediate availability of it's expanded lineup of 3G devices for its Quadrant® Solution. These devices and our Quadrant solution are designed both for large fleets that want to track non-powered assets (such as roll-off bins), non-fixed assets (such as trailers) and light-duty vehicles, and small fleets that want to deploy GPS/AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) fleet tracking simply and cost effectively.

"Our new 3G devices allow us to simplify our product offerings while broadening the range of vehicles and assets you can track, providing an end-to-end AVL solution for mixed fleets.," said Andrew Paul, VP Commercial Sales. "Our new solutions simplify how you monitor diverse fleets. Using our existing award-winning Webtech Wireless Quadrant solution, you can now track all types of vehicles and assets using ourfamiliar easy-to-use interface. Multiple vehicles need not mean multiple interfaces. Customers gain immediate pay back from their investment through better fleet utilization, operational efficiencies and reduced maintenance costs with Webtech Wireless" added Mr. Paul.

We are introducing these three new devices augmenting our previously announced full-service devices:

WT2200: The WT2200 Locator is Webtech Wireless's everyday asset tracking solution, offered with competitive pricing. It is a simple rugged device, built to International Protection Rating standards (IP67), which is easily attached to non-powered assets and then, using a long-life battery, sends location information at regular intervals.

WT2250: The WT2250 Locator is the ideal trailer tracking solution. As a fleet operator, it helps you reconcile contractor and driver hours on all your trailers. And, with two power modes, it reports according to whether it's powered (and hitched to a cab or other power source) or not powered and in the yard.

WT4500: The WT4500 OBDII Locator is an economical vehicle-tracking product designed for easy installation. The device features superior internal antennas for both cellular and GPS, which eliminates the need for professional installation. It simply plugs directly into the vehicle's OBDII port to provide location and ECM data.

"We lead the industry with innovative solutions designed and built to deliver immediate value to organizations. For customers who have already experienced the great benefits of deploying a GPS/AVL solution on their most valuable vehicles (oil and gas, construction, and other heavy equipment) with complex applications, they can now increase the range of vehicles they track to include light-duty vehicles, trailers and yellow iron. Simply and easily." said Scott Edmonds, President and CEO of Webtech Wireless.

Our three new 3G enabled locators (WT4500 ODBII Locator, WR2250 Trailer Tracker, and the WT2200 Asset Watcher) are available immediately. For more information, please call Webtech Wireless at +1 (604) 434 7337 (Option 2) or email info@webtechwireless.com to learn more about how to take advantage of these new Webtech Wireless solutions today.
