I.D. Systems Renews Agreement With Ford to Support Wireless Industrial Vehicle Management Technology

HACKENSACK, N.J., Feb. 12, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless vehicle management systems (VMS), today announced that it has renewed its agreement with Ford Motor Company to provide maintenance and support services for Ford's enterprise-wide deployment of I.D. Systems' industrial vehicle management systems and associated battery monitoring systems. Ford has had the technology deployed in plants throughout North America since 2003 to enhance workplace safety, help reduce operating costs, and improve the utilization of forklifts and other material handling equipment.

"We are gratified that I.D. Systems' technology continues to be a sound investment choice for Ford," said Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer support. "We look forward to continue helping Ford derive benefits from our wireless industrial vehicle management system."

I.D. Systems' wireless industrial vehicle management system is designed to enhance the safety, security, maintenance, and utilization of industrial equipment. The system improves safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators (as required by OSHA) and by providing electronic safety inspection checklists. The system helps reduce maintenance expenses by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting problems identified on checklists in real time, basing maintenance schedules according to actual vehicle usage rather than on a calendar basis, and helping management determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, the system can help improve equipment utilization and reduce the total cost of fleet ownership by ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time and streamlining work flow through automated messaging.

Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of wireless solutions for managing and securing high-value enterprise assets, including industrial vehicles, such as forklifts and airport ground support equipment, and rental vehicles.
