Webtech Wireless Announces Contract With CEVA Logistics

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces that it has signed a contract with CEVA Logistics to increase its ability to integrate better with a major North American auto manufacturer. Last April, CEVA began using Webtech Wireless data pumps to integrate internal data to a 3rd party logistics management back-end systems, and as a result, GPS/AVL data obtained through Webtech Wireless technology integrated to Penske Logistics' supply chain management ensures auto parts are delivered on time to Ford Motor Company's many manufacturing and assembly plants. This new contract expands on the proven success of Webtech Wireless' solutions for CEVA.

CEVA Logistics is a leading logistics company, providing end-to-end design, implementation and operational capabilities in freight forwarding, contract logistics, transportation management and distribution management. CEVA delivers parts throughout the US and Canada to its customers manufacturing facilities. The addition of the Webtech Wireless data pump has enabled CEVA to better respond to the needs of its customer. A deployment of additional MDT3100 units for its Michigan location will bring CEVA's complement of the Webtech Wireless solution to 250 data pump activations. "There are a lot of advantages. The MDT3100 units are easy for drivers to use. They don't need an extra keyboard and we expect that more of our drivers will want to use them. We're ahead of the curve", says Ray Cossette, Systems Operations Analyst at CEVA Logistics.

"Our telematics solutions are a key part in optimizing supply chains and logistics. CEVA Logistics is an excellent example of how we partner with customers to deliver end-to-end solutions that make a difference for companies like Ford," says Scott Edmonds, President and CEO. He continues, "We look forward to the next Quadrant deployment to help CEVA reach the next level in its business."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
