@Road® Selected by Qwest to Provide Mobile Resource Management Services to Assist Management of Field Operations

Fremont, CA -- January 7, 2003 -- @Road (Nasdaq: ARDI), a leading provider of location-enhanced wireless Internet solutions for mobile resource management (MRM), has been selected by Qwest to provide MRM services to help Qwest manage its field operations. Under the deployment plan, @Road will host and deliver a suite of MRM services to Qwest using the patented @Road LocationSmart(SM) technology platform.

Using the global positioning system (GPS) satellite network, wireless communications and the Internet, the LocationSmart technology platform provides mobile service organizations with a suite of management services, including activity and workflow reporting, mapping, location-on-demand and maintenance scheduling. Additionally, Qwest will use the new @Road DirectData service, which feeds business-critical data from the field directly to Qwest's computer systems. The technology is designed to increase the effective utilization of mobile workers, control operations costs and improve the delivery of customer service.

Qwest evaluated several alternatives prior to selecting @Road as its primary MRM services provider. During the selection process, the parties conducted a pilot program of the @Road MRM service suite. Qwest employs over 5,000 mobile workers across a number of lines of business.

"We are very pleased to announce the agreement with Qwest, a leading telecommunications services provider in the United States," said Krish Panu, CEO of @Road. "This agreement further supports our belief that the @Road LocationSmart technology platform is a critical tool for companies seeking to dramatically improve the satisfaction of customers using their telecommunications services," concluded Mr. Panu.
