You probably see the terms “Big Data” and “Analytics” a lot these days. Organizations are more data-driven than ever, mining every facet of operations to improve processes, reduce costs, and increase revenue and profits.
I.D. Systems focuses on data from industrial trucks—forklifts, pallet jacks, tow tractors, man-up vehicles, and the like. They are the workhorses of material handling, critical links in the supply chain, and a rich source of data. Our PowerFleet IQ™ analytics platform is unrivaled in its database and views of forklift fleet activity across multi-site enterprises.
