VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX: WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announced that the City of Mississauga has implemented the Webtech 511 solution, which is now available on Google Play and the iTunes App Store as "Mississauga Roads".
On May 24, 2014, the City of Mississauga celebrated National Public Works Week with an event featuring the launch of the new Mississauga Roads App, a mobile application delivering real-time road information to citizens on their smartphones or tablets (www.mississauga.ca/portal/residents/mobileroads). The application (intended for winter storm season) provides the status of winter operations within each neighbourhood and displays the location of snow plows as they travel their routes. In addition, it allows residents to view the latest weather forecast, receive updates from City Hall, and follow relevant twitter feeds to keep up to date on any road related issues.
In partnership with Purple Forge, Webtech Wireless powers Webtech 511, the first app that local governments can provide their citizens to show current road conditions, snow plow route completion, emergency road closures, and traffic congestion. The platform also integrates with established systems including emergency situation alerts and social media. Webtech 511 is available for customers subscribing to Webtech's InterFleet GPS/AVL service, an end-to-end solution providing comprehensive reporting capabilities that aid in monitoring and reducing material usage, lowering operating costs, and meeting road maintenance standards.
"We are very excited to be partnering with the City of Mississauga to deliver the Mississauga Roads mobile application," said Chris Jackson, Vice-President of Government Operations, Webtech Wireless. "With the Webtech 511 solution, government customers use state of the art mobile technology to deliver better service and to ensure transparency and accountability regarding their operations through real-time information and public updates."

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
