Nestle Waters NA initiates roll out of wireless vehicle management system from I.D. systems

Nov. 18, 2009
I.D. Systems, a provider of wireless asset management solutions, announced that Nestle Waters North America has initiated a series of follow-on purchase orders to implement I.D. Systems' PowerFleet Vehicle Management System (VMS) on fleets of industrial trucks at six plants in the United States.  Nestle Waters initially deployed the system at two sites during the second and third quarters of 2009.  Wireless Vehicle Management Systems help improve material handling 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.  A wireless VMS also helps reduce industrial fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle data, reporting vehicle problems electronically, scheduling maintenance according to actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar or manual data entry, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment.  In addition, a wireless VMS helps improve workplace safety and security by restricting vehicle access to trained, authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and sensing vehicle impacts.
