@Road® Announces General Availability of Mobile Resource Management Services Using the AT&T Wireless GPRS Network

High-speed Wireless Data Transmissions Enable Faster and More Powerful MRM Applications

Fremont, CA -- April 10, 2003 -- @Road (Nasdaq: ARDI), a leading provider of location-enhanced wireless Internet solutions for mobile resource management (MRM), today announced the general availability of its MRM service offering using AT&T Wireless' high-speed GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) network. Early subscribers to the @Road services using the AT&T Wireless GPRS network have experienced increased data transmission rates, enhanced security capabilities and wide geographic coverage.

"This new offering provides an important infrastructure improvement for our customers, particularly those with large mobile workforces and those transmitting large data volumes to and from the field," said Krish Panu, CEO of @Road. "Additionally, we are in a position to both leverage the attributes of the AT&T Wireless GPRS network when providing other new services, such as process and workflow exceptions and alerts from the field, as well as manage our internal cost of service with more attractively-priced wireless airtime."

Under the terms of the agreement, @Road will resell wireless data services on AT&T Wireless' next-generation GPRS network bundled with @Road's MRM services to its customers. The agreement also provides network access to subscribers who roam into Canadian areas covered by Rogers AT&T. Other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

@Road services include a comprehensive set of mobile resource management tools, reports and maps delivered on a hosted basis. @Road services are enabled by a variety of devices deployed to the field and provide users several access methods. Underlying the services is the @Road LocationSmart™ technology platform, which combines high-speed transaction processing, wireless connectivity and the global positioning system (GPS) satellite network with software applications and the Internet. @Road services are designed to improve the productivity of a customer's mobile resources, enhance the efficiency of the customer's overall operations, decrease the costs of its field activities and improve the delivery of service to its end-customers.
