FREMONT, Calif. – October 19, 2005 –@Road®, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARDI), a global provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and intelligent field service automation solutions, today announced that the company has once again ranked on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2000–2004. @Road revenues grew 608 percent during this period.

“@Road is proud to be recognized again as one of the fastest growing companies in North America and the Silicon Valley,” said Krish Panu, president and CEO of @Road. “Our impressive performance over the past five years can be attributed to a management team with the right vision and market insight, coupled with a workforce dedicated to bringing innovative @Road MRM solutions to our customers. We look forward to building on our prior successes with a new product strategy that focuses on and encompasses true end-to-end Mobile Resource Management solutions covering Field Force Management, Field Service Management and Field Asset Management."

This is the fourth consecutive year that @Road has earned a place on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list. In addition to ranking on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, @Road ranked 27 on the Silicon Valley Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in the Silicon Valley.

"Because the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 measures sustained revenue growth over five years, being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America is an impressive achievement," said Tony Kern, deputy national managing principal of Deloitte’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications industry practice. "@Road deserves a lot of credit for its remarkable growth."

The Fast 500 list is compiled from Deloitte’s 15 regional North American Fast 50 lists, nominations submitted directly to the Fast 500, and public company database research. To qualify for the Fast 500, entrants must have had 2000 operating revenues of at least $50,000 USD or $75,000 CD for the United States and Canada, respectively, and 2004 operating revenues of at least $1 million USD or CD. Entrants must be headquartered in North America and must be a “technology company,” defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.
