IDO Security, makers of the MagShoe™ security system for shoes-on weapons detection, has already been successful in generating sales around the world. Their one-of-a-kind device that allows the quick and accurate detection of weapons in the shoe area, without requiring shoe removal, is being used in airports, prisons, and other high-security locations, in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and Africa. And now the company has in its sights the United States, one of the biggest security markets of all.
IDO recently announced that they have forged a distribution agreement with JEI, Inc., a long established distributor of electronic equipment for public safety and military intelligence, to market MagShoe to government agencies and other markets in the U.S. As part of the arrangement, JEI has submitted the MagShoe to the U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) for formal approval.
IDO Security has been looking for a strong U.S. distributor, seeking someone with a lot of experience in the public sector. JEI fits the bill, with over 40 years in the U.S. security and safety markets. In addition to U.S. airports, final GSA approval will open the door to all federal buildings, prisons, court houses, military bases, and U.S. embassies around the world.
IDO’s continued success is based upon the clear need that MagShoe fills, a low cost and efficient solution to weapons detection that does not require individuals being scanned to remove their shoes, a major complaint of air travelers. IDO says that MagShoe is also more accurate in detecting threats than current procedures, which are prone to human error. The system integrates seamlessly with existing detectors and procedures, is fast and fully automatic, detecting both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
