WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Dec. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless M2M asset management solutions, has received a follow-on purchase order from a leading U.S. airline to expand deployment of I.D. Systems' AvRamp™ wireless vehicle management system (VMS) on aircraft ground support equipment (GSE). The airline previously implemented the AvRamp system at two major U.S. airports. The follow-on order, valued in excess of $500,000, extends AvRamp deployment to a third major U.S. airport.
"We are pleased to expand the footprint of our technology with this airline, which was our first major customer in the North American aviation market," said Norman Ellis, I.D. Systems' chief operating officer. "We believe this follow-on order reflects the effectiveness and value of our solution in airport operations, which we view as a relatively untapped market for I.D. Systems, with hundreds of thousands of vehicles used in airports around the world. We look forward to additional opportunities to expand our business with this customer, as well as other airlines, airport authorities, and aircraft service providers such as baggage handlers, catering companies and aviation fuel suppliers."
AvRamp is the airport version of I.D. Systems' patented wireless VMS technology. The system's ability to help control who drives what vehicle and encourage good driving habits can significantly enhance safety in an airport's area of operations. AvRamp can also decrease GSE fleet costs by reducing fuel usage and improving maintenance management, and improve operational efficiency through GPS location tracking, two-way text messaging, and asset utilization analyses.

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, sensing vehicle impacts, and monitoring vehicle speed. A wireless VMS also helps reduce fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems electronically, scheduling planned maintenance according to actual usage rather than by calendar time, automatically shutting down idling vehicles to conserve fuel (and reduce emissions), and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment. In addition, a wireless VMS helps improve productivity by establishing accountability for the use of equipment, ensuring vehicles are in the proper place at the right time, providing unique metrics on asset utilization, and optimizing vehicle routes through location tracking.
