Nestle Waters North America Selects I.D. Systems to Provide Wireless Vehicle Management Technology for Industrial Trucks

HACKENSACK, N.J., June 22, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless Vehicle Management Systems (VMS), today announced that it is implementing its PowerFleet(tm) VMS for Nestle Waters North America. The system is being deployed at two sites initially, with expansion planned to more than 100 sites globally based on expected system benefits. The order was placed by I.D. Systems' strategic marketing partner NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of industrial trucks, including Yale(r) brand lift trucks, and facilitated by Yale Chase, the Yale dealer in Southern California.

Nestle Waters North America is the nation's leading bottled water company. The company produces popular brands of healthful hydration such as Poland Spring(r) Natural Spring Water, Nestle(r) Pure Life(r) and S. Pellegrino(r). Headquartered in Greenwich, CT, the company has more than 8,000 employees and 24 factories throughout the U.S. and Canada. It is a subsidiary of Nestle S.A., the world's largest food company, with operations in almost every country in the world.

"Nestle has a culture of innovation and initiative, and Nestle Waters continuously seeks new ways to improve our supply chain operations," said Chris Lyon of Nestle Waters North America's National Fleet Services group. "Wireless vehicle management for industrial trucks is a technology that we intend to further explore in our enterprise to maximize the safety, efficiency and productivity of our material handling activities."

Wireless Vehicle Management Systems help improve supply chain productivity by establishing accountability for the use of equipment, ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time, streamlining material handling work flow, and providing unique metrics on equipment utilization. A wireless VMS also helps reduce fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems electronically, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar or manual data entry, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, a wireless VMS helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and sensing vehicle impacts.

"We are delighted to add Nestle Waters North America to our base of world-class customers," said Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service. "The system we are implementing for Nestle Waters is tailored for its corporate needs, including an enterprise-oriented, browser-based software architecture and a version of our SecureStream(tm) wireless communications system that incorporates both Wi-Fi and our own 'Intelligent RF' technology."

"We see Nestle Waters North America's investment in our PowerFleet VMS as a reflection of the system's exceptional value," added Mr. Fausel. "By deploying a system like PowerFleet to reduce costs and streamline operations, organizations like Nestle Waters North America can gain a competitive edge in their supply chains, which we think is especially important in the current economic environment."
