Webtech Wireless Awarded New Patent to Improve Inspection Efficiency
Vancouver, British Columbia – June 10, 2015 – Webtech Wireless Inc.(TSX:WEW), a leading provider of GPS fleet management solutions, announced it has been issued a patent in the United States that improves the efficiency of Hours of Service (HOS) inspections of fleets by the FMCSA and DOT.
In today’s world, drivers are required to log driving time and to comply with HOS regulations. Webtech Wireless’ patent US 8,977,427,B2 for “System, Method and Odometer Monitor for Detecting Connectivity Status of Mobile Terminal to a Vehicle” uses odometer monitoring through Webtech Wireless’ Webtech Driver Center product to save valuable time during roadside inspections. As the adoption of wireless mobile data terminals (MDT) increases the frequency of disconnections from the vehicle will increase. Webtech Wireless’ unique technology filters out the irrelevant disconnections reducing the inspector workload and improving the efficiency of a road side inspection.
“The award of this patent highlights Webtech Wireless’ ongoing commitment to providing our customers with innovative and industry-leading fleet management technology. It is our goal that our customers reach their strategic and operational goals quickly. The newly patented technology offers customers another valuable increase in efficiency while ensuring compliance, reducing operating costs and improving overall productivity of fleet operations,” says Larry Juba, Chief Operating Officer.
The Webtech Driver Center™ software application is an electronic logging device (ELD) that runs on MDTs and select Android consumer tablets. Designed to help drivers remain compliant with HOS regulations, Webtech Driver Center delivers a robust fleet management solution and offers electronic driver vehicle inspection reports, electronic forms and more.
