AT&T Business Solutions is partnering with WebTech Wireless to provide a comprehensive wireless fleet management system that provides advanced tracking and security capabilities. These features are specially tailored to the needs of government organizations including those responsible for transportation, public works, waste management, public transit and public safety, AT&T said in a news release. The program provides a single-source solution, easing the purchasing, billing and budgeting processes for government agencies at all levels.

"The new WebTech Wireless solution from AT&T Business Solutions -- a complete, robust fleet-management solution all on one bill -- aims to provide government organizations with the tools they need to track mobile assets and improve security, increase efficiency and reduce fuel and insurance costs," said Xavier Williams, senior vice president of government, education and medical markets for AT&T Business Solutions.

This solution gives organizations the ability to wirelessly track and monitor their vehicles and other mobile assets using AT&T Operations' nationwide mobile broadband network. The system provides fleet managers with information including vehicle location and speed, stops and deliveries, diagnostics/maintenance information and safety alerts. Drivers benefit from custom mapping and routing information, turn-by-turn directions and two-way communication with dispatchers, as well as safety features such as ignition locks and panic buttons.

The WebTech Wireless fleet-management solution now available from AT&T Business Solutions allows government organizations to have better control over their mobile assets and reduce costs through fuel savings, decreased driver overtime, improved maintenance scheduling and increased vehicle operational life spans. Greater safety and security for drivers, vehicles and cargo also translate into lower insurance costs. Public sector organizations can also comply with green initiatives through reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, now made possible with detailed monitoring of fuel use, excessive idling and overall vehicle operation.
