HACKENSACK, N.J., July 5 -- 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(TM) powered industrial vehicle management system at 12 additional USPS facilities. These orders increase the number of USPS facilities deploying the Wireless Asset Net to 56. Under the terms of the USPS' three-year national contract with I.D. Systems, up to 460 USPS facilities can order the Wireless Asset Net system.
"We continue to work very closely with the Postal Service to further expand their deployment of our wireless systems and help them generate substantial economic benefits through improved control over and analysis of their powered industrial vehicle operations," said Rick Muntz, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer satisfaction. "We are proud of the mutual commitment we share with the USPS 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.
