Walgreens Rolls Out New Generation of Wireless Vehicle Management Technology
From I.D. Systems, Including New Analytics Software

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Feb. 12, 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 series of purchase
orders from Walgreens (NYSE:WAG) (Nasdaq:WAG)for the latest generation of
I.D. Systems' PowerFleet™ wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS). The new
system will be deployed on hundreds of material handling vehicles across
multiple distribution centers in the United States. Walgreens originally
implemented I.D. Systems' wireless technology in 2003 and is systematically
upgrading more than a dozen of its facilities to the current generation of
PowerFleet VMS.

Included in the upgrade is implementation of I.D. Systems' new Analytics
software—a set of software tools that gives executives and facility managers a
single, integrated view of asset activity across multiple locations,
generating site-to-site comparisons and enterprise-wide benchmarks of material
handling operations. Walgreens management expects that I.D. Systems Analytics
will enable deeper insights into—and help optimize—industrial vehicle
performance across its distribution network.

"Walgreens is a longtime customer that has established our wireless VMS
technology as a best practice for safety, cost reduction, and productivity
optimization," said Ken Ehrman, I.D. Systems' president. "We are eager to
support Walgreens' deployment of the latest generation of PowerFleet, which
incorporates many new capabilities for vehicle access control, safety
checklist automation, and intelligent impact management.

"We are particularly excited about introducing Walgreens to our new Analytics
platform, which is designed to improve the speed and quality of business
decisions—and shed light on the outcomes of those decisions—to help streamline
enterprise material handling operations and generate a greater return on
investment from corporate assets."

About the PowerFleet Wireless Industrial Vehicle Management System

The PowerFleet VMS helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting
vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle
inspection checklists, and intelligently managing vehicle impacts. The system
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, PowerFleet 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.
