WebTech Wireless Inc., a provider of location-based and fleet telematics services, announced that it has confirmed a number of sales through NelTrak, the oil and gas industry partnership between NelCorp Inc., Foster Park Baskett Insurance, Noralta Technologies, Rogers Communications, and WebTech Wireless. The confirmed sales are to companies specialized in oil field support services operating in western Canada.

NelTrak’s solution includes worker panic and man-down devices and radio frequency cut-off switches when explosive conditions are detected. The oil and gas industry presents unique vehicle and workforce management challenges as mobile resources are often required to operate in very remote and hazardous conditions, WebTech says.

Commenting on the recent sales, Harald Fritz, Senior Director ASP Sales and Services, said, “It’s clear that even in the face of a challenging economic climate for Alberta’s oil and gas sector, service companies are realizing that our technology and the combined resources of the NelTrak partnership can help them significantly reduce their operating costs and increase workplace safety. These are the first of many sales we see occurring in the near future as the recessionary pressures on the industry ease and these companies and others look to meet the increasing demand for oil field services.”
