HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 17, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless asset tracking and management solutions, today announced it has received a non-exclusive purchase order from Alcoa (NYSE:AA) to deploy I.D. Systems' Wireless Asset Net(r) industrial vehicle management system on a fleet of material handling equipment at Alcoa's new manufacturing complex in Iceland, one of the most modern, environmentally-friendly aluminum production facilities in the world. The purchase order includes system hardware, software, implementation services, and ongoing maintenance and technical support services for a term of 60 months, including the initial warranty period. Alcoa will have the option to secure material handling equipment from a variety of partners, including those in Iceland.
The Wireless Asset Net improves productivity in manufacturing and distribution environments by establishing accountability for use of equipment, ensuring equipment is in the proper place at the right time, streamlining work flow through automated messaging, and providing management with unique metrics on -- and controls over -- equipment utilization. The system also improves workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators and providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists. In addition, the system reduces maintenance expenses by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems in real time, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than on a calendar basis, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment.
"We are pleased to expand our relationship with Alcoa, which has implemented I.D. Systems' technology previously at five other facilities," said Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service. "The Wireless Asset Net system fits well with Alcoa's focus on maximizing worker safety, while, at the same time, providing numerous tools to help reduce the cost of material handling operations."
