I.D. Systems Selected by CIO Review as a Top 20 Logistics Technology Solution Provider
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Nov. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless M2M asset management solutions, has been named one of the top 20 most promising logistics technology solutions providers by CIO Review, a publication focused on enterprise technology solutions capable of redefining an organization's future business goals.
CIO Review serves as a neutral source of information for decision makers seeking to identify "The Best" in a variety of areas important to technology-driven businesses. The editorial research team at CIO Review analyzed more than 300 companies offering technology solutions that address enterprise challenges in supply chain logistics. Through nominations and consultations with industry leaders, CIO Review editors chose the best 20, including I.D. Systems.
"We are honored that CIO Review has recognized I.D. Systems as a leading technology provider in the logistics industry," said Kenneth Ehrman, I.D. Systems' chairman and CEO. "This award encourages us to continue designing, developing, and implementing best-practice wireless solutions for managing high-value assets in the supply chain."
"I.D. Systems has been on our radar for some time now for stirring a revolution in the logistics space, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven solutions," said Harvi Sachar, publisher and founder of CIO Review.
I.D. Systems' patented solutions help customers control, track, and analyze assets such as industrial vehicles and cargo containers, to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve profitability. In selecting I.D. Systems as a top-20 solution provider, CIO Review focused on the company's industry-leading PowerFleet® wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS) for forklifts and other industrial trucks.
The PowerFleet VMS provides both safety benefits—through vehicle access control, impact management and electronic inspection checklists—and a compelling return on investment (ROI) through cloud-based analytics that drive key performance indicators (KPIs) for material handing operations.
"We deploy smart wireless devices on industrial vehicles, with sensors and algorithms that automatically identify, react to, and solve operational problems in real time," said Mr. Ehrman. "And by working with leading global manufacturers, distributors, and retailers over a long period of time, I.D. Systems has developed a unique database of industrial vehicle usage data by equipment type, facility type, and industry. With that data, our customers can benchmark their material handling performance within individual facilities, across their enterprises, and against their peer industries. This level of analytics is driving exponential growth in the wireless VMS market—the technology has become a best practice in the supply chain."
About Wireless 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 usage rather than by calendar time, 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.
