I.D. Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSY), a leading provider of wireless M2M asset management solutions, has been named one of the top 100 technology solutions providers to the food and beverage industry by Food Logistics, a trade publication dedicated to the global food and beverage supply chain.
For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers with influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain, producing products that benefit the industry in multiple ways, including by facilitating safe product handling and regulatory compliance.
"The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound," said Lara L. Sowinski, Editor-in-Chief at Food Logistics. "Software solution providers, equipment manufacturers and numerous technology innovations are supporting growth in our industry while concurrently lowering operating costs, improving productivity and enhancing visibility from farm to fork."
"We are very pleased to be named again to Food Logistics' list of top technology providers," said Norman Ellis, I.D. Systems' chief operating officer. "This selection reflects the ongoing rapid adoption of our patented wireless technology as a best practice for managing material handling equipment and transportation assets in the global food supply chain. Our customers include some of the largest food producers, CPG companies and retailers in the world."
I.D. Systems' solutions help customers control, track and analyze high-value assets, such as lift trucks and cargo containers, to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve profitability. In selecting I.D. Systems to the FL100 list, Food Logistics 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 install intelligent wireless computers on industrial vehicles, which automatically identify and react to operational problems in real time," said Mr. Ellis. "We have developed a unique database of industrial vehicle usage data, which our customers can use to 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."
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.
