WebTech Wireless Inc., a provider of location-based and fleet telematics services, recently announced that Rogers Communications Inc., Canada’s largest wireless voice and data communications services provider, has signed an exclusive supply agreement with WebTech. Under the agreement, Rogers Wireless will be selling WebTech’s Quadrant system under the new mFleet brand through its nationwide sales network of more than 500 sales representatives, plus other distribution partners.
mFleet, powered by WebTech, will be available in three formats: mFleet for Service Fleets, mFleet for Transportation & Logistics Fleets, and mFleet for Trailer and Asset Tracking. Feature-rich content ensures there is a product for all organization types, including government, according to the company, and financial and environmental benefits to customers are achieved through reduced fuel usage, enhanced employee safety and improved asset utilization.

“Rogers is continuously looking at new business solutions that deliver value to our customers,” says Mansell Nelson, vice president of Rogers Wireless. “mFleet offers a highly differentiated offering for a high-demand market that requires practical, cost-saving business applications. Rogers conducted an extensive RFP process that included over 40 companies worldwide. We are pleased to select WebTech with their proven industry and technical knowledge and extensive support system that will prove to be invaluable as we roll out the solution.”
