A Brief History

Aware Innovations, founded in 2021, employs a team of 15 people with 50 years of combined experience in the IT industry. Our company originally began as an IT contracting company, Evanhoe and Associates, that primarily served the government sector. Eventually, Evanhoe and Associates discovered a unique opportunity for innovation in the field of AIDC and began specializing in this field. A new inventive software known as ItemAware was developed by our team to meet the growing asset tracking and inventory management needs across several industries.

Aware Innovations was born out of Evanhoe and Associates and began doing business earlier this year. The parent company, focused on providing IT services to the government sector, was ultimately sold as was the building that held the company’s previous headquarters.

A Future Worth Working For

Our history is a solid foundation that has prepared our team for the next steps in Aware Innovations future.

Chuck Evanhoe, President and CEO of Aware Innovations, stated, “[w]e’re poised for what we hope will be explosive growth because we are solving a unique set of problems. [i]t’s a huge market.”

In preparation for this growth, Aware Innovations has recently moved our headquarters to a 4,000 square foot facility in West Carrollton. Our new expansive office space even allows our team to test the capabilities of our asset tracking software within our building.

The Who and Why Behind ItemAware

In case you missed it, last month’s blog post was dedicated solely to highlighting a customer’s experience using ItemAware. We believe our customer’s experiences are important to share because they speak to the real-world benefits gained from implementing our software.

Listed below is a brief synopsis of the client testimonial shared last month.

Ring Power Utility Equipment began a pilot program last year with South Florida utility contractor, Concurrent Group. Concurrent Group then partnered with our team of experts to meet their tool tracking and inventory management needs. Since adopting ItemAware, Concurrent has reduced their asset bleed by significantly decreasing the number of tools and equipment lost.

Additional benefits Concurrent discovered by using ItemAware include:

  • Their fleet managers have become empowered by their level of control and visibility to track equipment in real time.
  • Employees are now held accountable for lost or misplaced tools since ItemAware tracks the last known location of assets.
  • After implementing ItemAware, Concurrent found $175,000 of duplicate tools. This cost savings helped the company re-focus their budget on much more profitable goals.
  • The ease of software implementation allowed Concurrent to get back to focusing on the job at hand.
