May 2, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services and telematics technology, today announced that Winvale, a leading value added reseller of technology solutions to government agencies, have won a five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement with the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide best in class vehicle tracking and telematics solutions provided by Webtech Wireless. Winvale is now positioned to better support GSA's fleet of over 217,000 vehicles and to help GSA provide vehicle tracking and telematics services to over 75 other participating federal agencies in the GSA Fleet Management Program.
"Because of our keen interest in supporting GSA's mission, we are certainly proud of the BPA win," said Winvale Managing Partner, Kevin Lancaster. "We know that the GSA fleet division has historically been underserved by outdated vehicle tracking and monitoring solutions. We pursued the Webtech Wireless partnership because we knew their technology was far more capable of providing the solutions needed to support GSA and its fleet of more than 217,000 vehicles." With close to 250 technology deployments across the federal government, Winvale has the ability to deliver Webtech Wireless solutions both domestically and globally, helping the federal government meet its various fleet tracking mandates.
"Webtech Wireless has served the government sector since its inception, and we can point to customers such as the City of Chicago and City of Columbus/Franklin County, among many others, who are successfully using our Quadrant® and InterFleet® intelligent fleet management solutions to increase efficiency, lower costs and enhance services. We're very pleased to have been selected by Winvale as their GSA telematics solutions provider, and look forward to working together on the many opportunities this partnership represents," said Scott Edmonds, Webtech Wireless' President and CEO.
