WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Jan. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless solutions for securing, tracking and managing high-value enterprise assets, has received a purchase order from a leading supermarket chain in the Northeast U.S. The supermarket will implement I.D. Systems' PowerFleet® wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS) at one of its primary distribution centers. Initially, the system will be deployed on approximately 170 material handling vehicles. The supermarket operates a total of approximately 1,000 industrial vehicles across its distribution facilities and retail stores. "We are very pleased that one of the most progressive, highly regarded grocery chains in the country has selected our PowerFleet VMS to help manage its material handling assets," said Ken Ehrman, I.D. Systems president. "We look forward to helping this new customer apply best practices to its distribution operations, specifically with respect to safety controls, cost efficiencies, and productivity enhancements that will ultimately contribute to profitability." A wireless VMS helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, requiring electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and providing automated management tools relating to vehicle accidents. 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 material handling productivity by establishing equipment accountability, ensuring vehicles are in the proper place at the right time, and providing unique metrics on fleet utilization.
