VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Webtech Wireless Inc.(TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, and Purple Forge today announced their partnership in developing the mobile application, Webtech 511. Available on both Android and iOS devices, the application allows government agencies to communicate current road conditions to citizens and travellers, drawing on real-time telematics data.
The Webtech 511 app allows government agencies who subscribe to Webtech Wireless's InterFleet GPS/AVL service to provide updates on snow clearing, parking restrictions, traffic updates and camera links, emergency weather information, and much more, right on a smart phone or tablet device. InterFleet's end-to-end solution provides the high frequency reporting and integrations needed to ensure the public is updated in real-time on what roads are safe to drive on.
"Mobile applications provide a distinct advantage over websites by being able to provide timely and comprehensive information to citizens on the devices they most frequently use," said Chris Jackson, Vice-President of Government Operations, Webtech Wireless. "By having state of the art mobile apps power the Webtech 511 solution, governments will be able to ensure transparency and accountability regarding their operations through real-time information and public updates."
The Webtech 511 application will be showcased at the American Public Works Association (APWA) Snow Show, being held May 4-7, 2014 in Cincinnati Ohio. Chris Jackson will be speaking in the Exhibitor Solution Theater on the Webtech 511 solution at 10:40 am EST on May 6, 2014.
