Leading hardware cooperative endorses the DPL product line

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — December 6, 2005 — DPL Telematics, a leading provider of advanced wireless and GPS products, announced today it has signed with True Value, one of the world’s largest member-owned wholesale hardware cooperatives, as their approved provider of GPS and remote monitoring products. This endorsement makes DPL Telematics award winning TITAN Equipment Monitoring System and SkyHawk Vehicle Tracking System approved products for the entire True Value membership, including such retail identities as Grand Rental Station, Taylor Rental, Party Central and True Value.

“We are excited to introduce DPL Telematics series of wireless solutions to our membership,” said Tom Fischer, Merchandise Manager-Rental Division. “Vehicles and construction equipment are a major investment for our members and it only makes sense to utilize affordable, effective technology like the TITAN and Skyhawk systems which increase the revenue opportunity and cost savings for those assets.”

Fischer added, “DPL Telematics wireless systems are reliable, high quality, easy to install and easy to use. That is great value for our members.”

DPL Telematics suite of wireless monitoring systems combines the Internet, cellular and global positioning system (GPS) technologies to deliver powerful solutions for asset management, tracking and theft protection.

This will help True Value members nationwide protect their construction equipment from theft while capturing lost rental revenue and expediting collections on nonpaying rentals. Additional advantages of the TITAN system include the ability to remotely shut down equipment, wirelessly collect hour meter readings, automatic maintenance scheduling and near-real time locating capabilities from any Internet connected computer.

True Value members with over-the-road assets will experience reduced fuel and service costs with increased driver productivity and accountability. Additional advantages of the SkyHawk system include route history mapping, stop/start/idle time identifications, speeding notifications, automatic vehicle location updates and mileage reports.
