Rishon Lezion, Israel — October 22, 2014 — B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS”) (NASDAQ: BOSC), today announced that its RFID & Mobile division in cooperation with Live in Clean City Ltd. (“Clean City”), has successfully completed the first implementation of an RFID based system for tracking garbage trucks ("RFID System").
Clean City is a leading provider of technological solutions for waste management in municipalities in Israel. By using an RFID System, waste can be identified and tracked through the entire waste chain. RFID tags are attached to waste containers and the trucks are equipped with RFID readers thereby improving the verification of pickups and tracking the number of times a container is used for collection. The RFID System was integrated at the Modiin municipality in Israel.
Mr. Yizhak Gazit, CEO of Clean City stated: "Waste management is a growing industry. It’s also an industry that has turned to technology to help manage many aspects of its day to day operation. RFID has been used by municipalities outside of Israel, to increase efficiency of waste management. We teamed up with BOS' RFID and Mobile division due to its long experience in RFID based systems. Together with BOS, we plan to offer to all the major municipalities in Israel an RFID System for waste management.”
Mr. Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: "Waste containers come in many forms, materials and sizes, but they are all subject to harsh environments and rough handling. Being outdoors, waste containers are exposed to cold wet, heat and machine abuse. Only RFID tags can withstand such conditions and continue to function throughout the life cycle of these containers and allow constant monitoring. Together with Clean City, we are able to offer municipalities a one stop shop for waste management solutions. I am confident that this collaboration has a promising future”.
