I.D. Systems, Inc., was incorporated in the State of Delaware in 1993. The Company develops, markets and sells wireless solutions for managing and securing high-value enterprise assets. These assets include industrial vehicles, such as forklifts, airport ground support equipment, and rental vehicles, and transportation assets, such as dry van trailers, refrigerated trailers, railcars and containers. Its patented systems utilize radio frequency identification (RFID), Wi-Fi, satellite or cellular communications, and sensor technology and software to address the needs of organizations to control, track, monitor and analyze their assets. The Company's solutions enable customers to achieve tangible economic benefits by making timely, informed decisions that increase the security, productivity and efficiency of their operations. The Company has focused its business activities on three primary applications: (i) industrial fleet management, (ii) transportation asset management, and (iii) rental fleet management. Its solution for industrial fleet management allows its customers to reduce operating costs and capital expenditures and to comply with certain safety regulations by accurately and reliably measuring and controlling fleet activity. Its solution for transportation asset management allows customers to increase revenue per asset deployed, reduce fleet size, and improve the monitoring and control of sensitive cargo. Its solution for rental fleet management assists rental car companies in generating higher revenue by more accurately tracking vehicle data, such as fuel consumption and odometer readings, and improving customer service by expediting the rental and return processes. In addition, the company has developed a cloud-based software tool called I.D. Systems Analytics, which is designed to provide a single, integrated view of asset activity across multiple locations, generating enterprise-wide benchmarks, peer-industry comparisons, and deeper insights into asset operations. The Company offers its customers integrated wireless solutions to control, monitor, track and analyze their enterprise assets. Its solutions are comprised of hardware and software, as well as maintenance, support and consulting services. It markets and sells its wireless solutions to customers in the commercial and government sectors. Its customers operate in different markets, such as automotive manufacturing, heavy industry, retail and wholesale distribution, aerospace and defense, homeland security and vehicle rental. It competes with organizations varying in size, including many small, start-up companies as well as large, well-capitalized organizations. The Company is subject to regulation in the United States by various federal agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA.
