FREMONT, Calif. – September 12, 2005 – @Road®, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARDI), a global provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and intelligent field service automation solutions, today announced the appointment of Ananth Siva as Vice President, Asia Pacific. The 19-year veteran of IBM will lead @Road expansion efforts in the Asia Pacific region and will be based out of @Road offices in Sydney, Australia.

"We are proud to have Ananth lead our efforts to develop the Asia Pacific market as part of our global growth strategy," said Krish Panu, @Road CEO.
