I.D. Systems Receives Additional Orders from U.S. Postal Service For Wireless Vehicle Management Systems
HACKENSACK, N.J., April 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDSY) today announced that it has received orders from the United States Postal Service (USPS) to deploy the company's Wireless Asset Net(R) powered industrial vehicle management system at seven additional USPS facilities. The orders are cumulatively valued at approximately $1.8 million. Fulfillment of these orders will increase the number of USPS facilities deploying the Wireless Asset Net to 72.
"We are pleased to continue our close relationship with the U.S. Postal Service," said Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer support. "The continued deployment of our wireless systems across the postal distribution system reflects a significant effort to generate economic benefits through improved management of powered industrial vehicle operations. We are proud of the mutual commitment we share with the Postal Service toward achieving these goals."
The Wireless Asset Net consists of intelligent wireless devices (Vehicle Asset Communicators(R)) installed on powered industrial vehicles (such as fork trucks and pallet movers), a patented communication infrastructure, and client-server software for access control, utilization analysis, real-time location tracking, and many other functions. The system is designed to improve industrial workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators and by providing electronic safety inspection checklists. The system is designed to reduce maintenance expenses by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems in real time, giving management the option of scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than on a calendar basis, and helping plant management determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. The system is also designed to help improve productivity by ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time and by providing management with unique reports on vehicle utilization.
Based in Hackensack, NJ, I.D. Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of wireless solutions for managing and securing high-value enterprise assets. These assets include industrial vehicles, such as forklifts and airport ground support equipment, and rental vehicles. The Company's patented Wireless Asset Net system, which utilizes radio frequency identification, or RFID, technology, addresses the needs of organizations to control track, monitor and analyze their assets.
