On June 14, 2012, Webtech Wireless celebrated its win of the Adoption of Technology award at the 2012 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs). The British Columbia Technology Industry Association (BCTIA) hosted the awards night held at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre. BCTIA President and CEO, Bill Tam said, “The Adoption of Technology award recognizes a company whose technology has proven to make a positive difference for customers”.

By definition, this award is collaborative and we were thrilled to share the stage with our client, Troyer Ventures, and technology partner, TMW Systems. Webtech Wireless President and CEO, Scott Edmonds, Troyer Ventures’ owner, Steve Troyer, and TMW Director of Development, Chris Maddocks jointly accepted the award. We were chosen over many applicants by a panel of eight judges representing technology, innovation, and business for our Quadrant implementation to Troyer Ventures, a service provider based in northeastern British Columbia, and in partnership with TMW Systems.

Ville de Québec Top Finalist for Intelligent Community Award

Ville de QuébecWe are thrilled to report that Ville de Québec (Quebec City) is among seven finalists for the municipally coveted 2012 Intelligent Community award.

Since 2001, Ville de Québec has been actively developing its broadband infrastructure and, in 2009 as part of its commitment to bettering itself as an intelligent community, implemented our InterFleet solution to its winter fleet operations.

Each year, the Intelligent Community Forum presents this award to intelligent communities that “have come to understand the enormous challenges of the broadband economy, and have taken conscious steps to create an economy capable of prospering in it”.  The awards program has two goals: to salute the accomplishments of communities in developing inclusive prosperity on a foundation of information and communications technology, and to gather data for ICF’s research programs.

As part of Ville de Québec’s commitment to promoting web-based solutions, the city launched an interactive Web map to provide high-quality cartographic and zoning data. Among other capabilities, the map displays real-time locations of the city’s snow plows. “Through smarter deployment of plows, the city has been able to reduce the number of vehicles and operating expenses per vehicle while providing better results.”

In 2009, Ville de Québec chose Webtech Wireless’ InterFleet solution for their snow plows and winter fleet operational information, because it offered real-time information (five-second reporting and automatic map updates), support for multiple spreader controllers, and great road salt management capabilities.

The seven finalists for the Award (in alphabetical order):

  • Austin, Texas, United States
  • Oulu, Finland
  • Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
  • Riverside, California, United States
  • Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
  • Stratford, Ontario, Canada
  • Taichung City, Taiwan
