I.D. Systems Wins Contract to Deploy Wireless Industrial Vehicle Management
System for U.S. Marine Corps
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 22, 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 been awarded a contract by the
National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to deploy I.D. Systems'
PowerFleet™ Wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS) on a fleet of material
handling equipment at a U.S. Marine Corps facility in Albany, Georgia. This is
the second contract I.D. Systems has executed with NCMS in the past month for
a system deployment at a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) facility. The total
value of the two contracts is more than $400,000.
NCMS is a non-profit organization, funded in part by the DoD, that forms
partnerships between the DoD and private industry under the Commercial
Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) program. NCMS facilitates
development, deployment and validation of innovative commercial technologies
that provide operational benefits and cost savings for DoD maintenance
"Our mission is to identify and implement best-practice commercial
technologies for DoD applications," said Rick Jarman, President and CEO, NCMS.
"I.D. Systems' ability to provide flexible technical solutions to meet the
needs of different sites has been critical to help us introduce the
operational benefits of wireless industrial vehicle management to the DoD."
The PowerFleet system being deployed at the Marine Corps facility is based on
cellular communications and remote hosting technology, which enables the
Marine Corps to benefit from full system functionality without adding to the
site's existing wireless network traffic or requiring ongoing support from the
site's information technology resources.
"We are excited about expanding our presence in U.S. Government facilities,
particularly within the DoD," said Kenneth Ehrman, president of I.D. Systems.
"The Government uses large fleets of material handling equipment and our
wireless VMS can provide best-practice tools for managing the safety,
maintenance, and productivity of these fleets. We believe this is especially
important for the DoD, as it strives to accomplish all of its mission-critical
tasks with the same or even fewer resources."
About Vehicle Management Systems
Vehicle Management Systems (VMS) help improve workplace safety and security by
restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, providing
electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and sensing vehicle impacts. 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 supply chain productivity
by establishing accountability for the use of equipment, ensuring equipment is
in the proper place at the right time, streamlining material handling work
flow, and providing unique metrics on equipment utilization.
