FREMONT, Calif. - @Road Inc., a leading provider of mobile resource management (MRM) solutions, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Alltel Wireless, one of America''s largest networks. Under the terms of the agreement, @Road can resell Alltel wireless data services bundled with @Road''s MRM solutions, while Alltel''s sales force can refer its customers to @Road for MRM solutions as part of the Alltel Axcess Fleet Management program. The agreement also provides wireless network access to @Road subscribers who roam into areas covered by Alltel''s nationwide roaming agreements with other wireless carriers.

"We believe that the agreement with Alltel allows us to strengthen the penetration of our MRM services into less populated regions that tend to have higher concentrations of transportation and distribution companies,” said Leo Jolicoeur, @Road chief marketing officer. "Also, the agreement contains an arrangement whereby Alltel''s sales force can refer Alltel business customers to @Road for MRM solutions. Now, Alltel business customers can experience the same workforce productivity benefits that thousands of @Road customers already experience through automated end-to-end management of their mobile workers, their mobile worker''s work, and their assets in the field.”

@Road''s family of end-to-end MRM solutions includes solutions for field force management designed to help businesses drive down fuel and other operating costs while increasing mobile worker productivity. This is accomplished through greater location intelligence and visibility into the daily activities of their mobile workers and their work - from actual vehicle routes, starts and stops, to customizable maps showing mobile worker location relative to important landmarks like customer locations. @Road field force management solutions also allow businesses to upload customer and/or trip information into a routing engine to generate on-demand, actionable reports such as optimized routes and drive-time, fuel economy, and more.

In addition to MRM solutions for field force management comprised of GPS-based monitoring, mapping, reporting, as well as wireless communications, messaging, and automated workflow, @Road also offers MRM solutions for field service management consisting of intelligent software for appointing, scheduling and dispatching, routing, and demand/capacity planning. The company also offers solutions for field asset management incorporating vehicle diagnostic/prognostic and sensor technologies for driver safety, inventory management, and optimized vehicle performance and maintenance.
