AT&T Business Solutions Offers Mobile Fleet Management Solution for Government

By PRESS RELEASE — January 27, 2009

AT&T Business Solutions today announced the availability of WebTech Wireless from AT&T, a comprehensive wireless fleet management system that provides advanced tracking and security capabilities. These features are specially tailored to the needs of government organizations including those responsible for transportation, public works, waste management, public transit and public safety. The program provides a single-source solution, easing the purchasing, billing and budgeting processes for government agencies at all levels.

"AT&T Business Solutions is committed to serving its government customers with customized tools to meet their specific needs," said Xavier Williams, senior vice president of Government Education and Medical Markets for AT&T Business Solutions. "The new WebTech Wireless solution from AT&T Business Solutions -- a complete, robust fleet-management solution all on one bill -- aims to provide government organizations with the tools they need to track mobile assets and improve security, increase efficiency and reduce fuel and insurance costs."
Neil Chan, senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for WebTech Wireless, said, "We are proud to be working closely with AT&T, combining their leadership in serving the full range of government telecommunications needs with our solutions designed to help fleet managers reduce the cost of delivering government services as well as meeting stricter environmental targets."

This solution gives organizations the ability to wirelessly track and monitor their vehicles and other mobile assets using AT&T Operations' nationwide mobile broadband network. The system provides fleet managers with a wealth of vital information including vehicle location and speed, stops and deliveries, diagnostics/maintenance information and safety alerts. Drivers benefit from custom mapping and routing information, turn-by-turn directions and two-way communication with dispatchers, as well as safety features such as ignition locks and panic buttons.

The WebTech Wireless fleet-management solution now available from AT&T Business Solutions allows government and commercial organizations to have better control over their mobile assets and reduce costs through fuel savings, decreased driver overtime, improved maintenance scheduling and increased vehicle operational life spans. Greater safety and security for drivers, vehicles and cargo also translate into lower insurance costs. Public and private sector organizations can also comply with green initiatives through reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, now made possible with detailed monitoring of fuel use, excessive idling and overall vehicle operation.
WebTech Wireless is available beginning today through AT&T Business Solutions sales teams.
