TELE ATLAS AND PROMILES TEAM TO ENHANCE ROUTING AND LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS

Expanded relationship incorporates extensive turn-by-turn data from Tele Atlas with industry-leading trucking attributes from ProMiles

LAS VEGAS - 2004 ATA MC&E - OCTOBER 5, 2004-Tele Atlas, a worldwide leading provider of digital maps and location content, and ProMiles Software Development Corporation (PSDC), announced today that the two companies are collaborating to bring the power of ProMiles XF and TruckMiles truck routing applications and Tele Atlas' turn-by-turn map data to trucking and logistics companies. Through this expanded agreement, ProMiles will begin incorporating Tele Atlas' turn-by-turn data into its routing and logistics products for street level routing applications.

This expanded relationship brings benefits to companies' customers. ProMiles will integrate Tele Atlas data and its customers will benefit from the enhanced door-to-door addressing and routing that Tele Atlas' data offers. In the future, as ProMiles truck attribute content is linked to the Tele Atlas database, Tele Atlas customers will be able to license ProMiles attributes as part of their turn-by-turn content to develop more compelling applications.

"ProMiles offers one of only a few applications that offers door-to-door addressing along with truck attributes such as designated truck routes, hazardous restrictions, weight and height restrictions, etc." said Dana Fenner, director of Fleet Logistics vice president for Tele Atlas North America. "By combining this functionality with Tele Atlas' detailed routing and addressing content, we are bringing an even more powerful solution to the industry."

"We are always evaluating the products we offer our customers and continue to seek out ways to improve our products and services," stated Tony Stroncheck, president of ProMiles Software Development Corporation (PSDC). "By partnering with Tele Atlas, we are able to further enhance our product and deliver increased value to our customers."
