MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Webtech Wireless Inc. can count on the City of Mississauga as a customer for at least the next half decade.

The city has signed a five-year contract to use the Burnaby, B.C. company’s Fleet Center GPS/AVL fleet management solution to manage its winter fleet. The agreement, worth a total of $2.1 million also includes two optional one-year contact extension provisions.

Along with the core Fleet Center deployment, Mississauga has signed up for Advanced Route Completion and Live Service Map Reporting features, and is receiving services under Wireless Webtech’s Winter Light Up program (which checks fleet preparedness for the winter season).

The city is also licensing Webtech 511 on a monthly basis. This application underpins the city’s Mississauga Roads mobile application which allows residents to get updates on the snowplow activity in their neighbours, including the location of snow-removal equipment, as well as weather forecasts, updates from city hall and Twitter feeds that share news of road conditions.

“The City of Mississauga first implemented our solutions over five years ago in public works, parks and recreation, and road maintenance vehicles. By expanding their services to include winter operations and fleet monitoring solutions, the City of Mississauga will experience a more efficient, optimized and transparent fleet operation,” said Pete Callaghan, Webtech Wireless’ senior vice-president of sales and marketing.

“Our key differentiator is the ability to provide enhanced fleet management solutions to customers with a variety of fleets. The City of Mississauga implementation is another excellent example of Webtech Wireless’ ability to deliver high value full fleet solutions.”
