I.D. Systems Wireless Solutions Featured at RedPrairie User Conference
ORLANDO, Fla., April 30, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of RFID-based asset tracking and management solutions, and RedPrairie Corporation, a world leading consumer-driven optimization company, today announced that I.D. Systems is exhibiting its best-practice material handling labor management solutions at RedPrairie's "RedShift 2007" annual user conference, commencing today at the Omni Orlando Resort. In conjunction with this event, I.D. Systems and RedPrairie have signed a memorandum of understanding to pursue a joint strategic marketing agreement.
I.D. Systems' patented Wireless Asset Net(r) system controls, tracks and manages fleets of material handling vehicles and the people who operate them. It improves productivity in manufacturing and distribution environments by establishing total visibility of, and accountability for, vehicle utilization. It also improves workplace safety and security through vehicle access control, electronic inspection checklists, impact sensing, and real-time visibility of asset status. In addition, the system helps reduce operating costs through automated tools for managing vehicle maintenance.
RedPrairie's E2e(tm) solutions integrate workforce management technologies, like the Wireless Asset Net(r), with business transformation processes, change management and strategic project management to optimize the agility, accountability and efficiency of an enterprise's supply chain. RedPrairie's workforce management tools include demand planning, schedule and task optimization, training management, compliance and measurement tools, and visibility and analytic tools -- all of which work together to provide continuous improvement in productivity, asset utilization, work quality, worker turnover, and labor costs.
"We are excited to have I.D. Systems as an exhibiting partner at our RedShift user conference because the Wireless Asset Net(r) can generate more value for customers through better visibility of, and control over, material handling operations," said Tom Kozenski, RedPrairie's vice president of product marketing. "The system can increase the quantity and quality of productivity data. It can add a new dimension to labor incentive and discipline programs. It can enable automation and remote visibility of key management tasks, such as standards audits. And it can provide effective, sustainable control over the mobile equipment and people involved in material handling. These capabilities not only complement environments where Warehouse Management Systems are used, they also provide an effective alternative to management in environments where WMS deployment is limited or non-existent."
Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems' executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service, said, "The customer need that I.D. Systems fills so well -- controlling and tracking activity of material handling vehicles and operators -- blends exceptionally well with RedPrairie's strengths, which include benchmarking labor expectations and aggregating productivity data on a full-facility scale, executing employee discipline and incentive programs, implementing employee training management systems, and providing data analysis and consultancy to help extract more productivity and cut more costs from the supply chain. We look forward to partnering with RedPrairie to add the Wireless Asset Net(r) to the E2e(tm) solutions set and bring the combined power of our workforce management and control tools to enterprises focused on material handling."
