Hackensack, NJ, and Brussels, Belgium, April 22, 2008-I.D. Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSY) a leading
provider of wireless solutions for controlling, tracking and managing industrial vehicles, and Zetes Industries
(Euronext Brussels: ZTS), the leading pan-European systems integrator of automatic identification
technologies ("Goods ID and People ID"), today announced that they have finalized an agreement under
which Zetes will market I.D. Systems' products and services throughout Europe.
"I.D. Systems' strengths-wirelessly managing the productivity, safety and operational cost issues associated
with material handling vehicles and operators-fit exceptionally well into Zetes' portfolio of leading-edge
supply chain applications, which include voice-directed work, bar coding and RFID," said Jeffrey Jagid, I.D.
Systems' chairman and CEO. "We could not ask for a better partner to market our products and services
across Europe. Zetes employs over 700 people in 12 countries, provides unique expertise in value-added
systems integration, and delivers outstanding customer support. We look forward to ramping up joint
marketing activities with Zetes to generate significant new revenue opportunities in Europe, which is one of
the key elements of I.D. Systems' corporate growth strategy."
"An industrial fleet management solution was a natural addition to our product portfolio," said Alain Wirtz,
CEO of Zetes. "Adding I.D. Systems' world-class wireless technology to our range of supply chain solutions
will enable us to offer more value for customers in manufacturing, logistics, retail, transportation, and
government. Many of our existing customers operate fork lift truck fleets, and are keen to reduce fleet
maintenance costs, maximize utilization levels, minimize downtime, and reduce the high costs of repairing
damaged vehicles. Thanks to the agreement signed with I.D. Systems, Zetes will be able to offer proven
solutions to our customers, which will allow them to increase productivity, improve workplace safety, and
reduce operating costs. I.D. Systems has an impressive track record of successful installations in North
America. By distributing this solution in our own territories, Zetes can now bring the same advantages to our
European customers and respond to the needs they have expressed."
I.D. Systems' patented Wireless Asset Net® system controls, tracks and manages material handling vehicles
and the people who operate them. It improves productivity in manufacturing and distribution environments
by establishing total visibility of, and accountability for, material handling vehicle utilization. It also improves
workplace safety and security through vehicle access control, electronic inspection checklists, impact sensing,
and real-time visibility of asset status. In addition, the system helps reduce operating costs through automated
tools for managing vehicle maintenance.
I.D. Systems and Zetes will be represented at the premier material handling industry events in both the U.S.
and Europe-the NA 2008 show in Cleveland, Ohio, April 21-24, and CeMAT in Hannover, Germany, May
27-31. To learn more about those events, visit www.nashow.com and www.cemat.de.
