I.D. Systems announced that its Keytroller division has developed a new class of industrial truck telematics platforms aimed at small- to medium-sized fleets in manufacturing, distribution, logistics and retail centers.
Available in early summer, the 106 Series also can secure and track construction heavy equipment, according to the company.
“The new 106 offers a perfect blend of size, ease of installation, ease of use and value,” Woodcliff, N.J.-based I.D. Systems said. “The system does not require complicated IT support, as it operates over a Bluetooth direct connection to an iPad or iPhone.”
Upgrades to multi-site WiFi-connected systems will be available.
“Now site managers at warehouse, manufacturing, distribution and retail environments can know that only certified operators are using their equipment, document that they have completed required safety checklists and keep track of how their equipment is operated,” the company said. “Peace of mind at an affordable price – that’s the 106.”
Terry Wickman, president of the Keytroller division, said the new system “marks a true leap forward to making telematics available at every fleet, regardless of size, budget or technical sophistication.”
“There are more than 10 million industrial trucks globally and the vast majority of this huge opportunity is in mid to small fleets,” Wickman added. “The 106 hits the opportunity in the bull’s-eye.”
