(Nasdaq: ARDI), a global provider of next-generation solutions for Mobile Resource Management (MRM), today announced that CAL-Logistics of North Wales has signed a reseller agreement to offer @Road’s flagship GeoManager MRM solution for field force management. @Road GeoManager is an advanced MRM solution for field force management designed to help businesses reduce operating costs and improve the productivity of mobile workers in the field through GPS-based monitoring, mapping and reporting, as well as wireless communications, messaging and automated workflow. Today’s announcement was made at the Service Management Europe 2006 conference being held at the NEC in Birmingham UK.

Leo Jolicoeur, @Road chief marketing officer said: “We’re excited about the energy building in our efforts to expand in the UK and across Europe. Announcing CAL-Logistics as one of our first UK-based resellers illustrates our strategy to market and sell our advanced GeoManager MRM solution through a variety of international sales and distribution channels. In particular, we chose to work with CAL-Logistics because we believe it has the experience and expertise to effectively deliver @Road GeoManager to the market and we look forward to helping it take advantage of the opportunity.”

CAL-Logistics was established to deliver comprehensive MRM solutions to businesses, allowing them to have higher visibility of their staff and vehicles.

Stephen Calvert, director of CAL-Logistics said: “CAL-Logistics is pleased to have teamed up with @Road to bring its suite of Mobile Resource Management Solutions to the UK market. As a company, CAL-Logistics is organised to deliver not only the technology to enable businesses to manage their mobile workers but also the operational support via our sister company, CAL-Consulting Ltd.”

Mr. Calvert added: “The opportunity to resell @Road GeoManager, with its technology, platform and suite of reports is designed to provide businesses higher visibility into the location and operation of their mobile workers. When this is added to the messaging service offered by @Road, we can deliver a more comprehensive package to enable communications and help increase efficiencies.”

@Road’s flagship GeoManager MRM solution for field force management is designed to enable businesses to 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 or work yards. @Road field force management solutions also allow businesses to upload customer and/or trip information into a third party routing engine to generate on-demand, actionable reports such as optimized routes and drive-time, fuel economy, city ordinance compliance and much 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.
