ID Systems' PowerBox technology
Southeast Industrial Equipment Inc has ordered wireless solutions valued at USD200,000 for deployment on a forklift fleet in a plant of an unidentified major manufacturer of appliances.
ID Systems Inc of Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey will supply its PowerBox-brand wireless vehicle management system (VMS) to the manufacturer, a new end-user of ID Systems' solutions.
The cloud-hosted PowerBox VMS is designed for rapid deployment and benefit achievement with no need to interface with a site's data network or information technology support organisation. The pre-configured PowerBox has a combination of local radio frequency and cellular technologies for autonomous wireless data communications. The system is offered as a subscription service without a requirement for an upfront capital investment.
"We are pleased to expand our relationship with Southeast Industrial Equipment, a key strategic partner for ID Systems, and add to our customer base another global manufacturer that operates a large fleet of industrial vehicles around the world," says Kenneth Ehrman, president and interim CEO of ID Systems.
Charlotte-based Southeast Industrial distributes Toyota forklifts, Genie aerial platforms, Cushman utility vehicles, Terex construction equipment and Advance industrial scrubbers through materials handling and construction equipment dealerships throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia.
