Your Time Isn’t Free.

We’ve all been there… sitting at our desk at the end of a grueling workday with the nagging “what am I forgetting” feeling. You know the one. The feeling that wakes you up at 2 AM because you know you are forgetting something important, but you just can’t remember what it is. This feeling is only made worse when the “I can’t remember but I know it’s time sensitive” turns into “I missed a critical deadline that has put my workers’ safety at risk”. Not to mention the financial cost of becoming noncompliant with OSHA standards.

Time well spent can not only save business leaders money and help them regain focus but can also eliminate the unnecessary stresses of the “what am I forgetting” feeling. What would it mean to you if you could offload the mental weight of remembering all your calibration, maintenance, and inspection due dates? What goals could you turn your attention to if you didn’t need to carve out space to keep track of these essential deadlines?

Your time matters. It is an invaluable resource that comes at a high cost when wasted. ItemAware preserves your time while giving you the freedom to more quickly return to the job at hand. Let our intuitive software do the remembering for you so that you can get back to work with confidence.

You cannot put a price on peace of mind. Wouldn’t you rather be proactive in meeting safety due dates vs. reactive once you realize you have missed critical deadlines? By investing in ItemAware, you can rest easier knowing that you will never miss a required safety inspection again.

Accidents Are Costly.

No one should feel afraid to go to work. Because of this unnecessary mental stress, a nervous employee can reasonably be a less productive one. Help your employees work more efficiently by allowing them to know that their safety is your top priority. You can do this by ensuring all reasonable, preventative actions are being taken to make certain that accidents aren’t a regular occurrence.

Inspections aren’t to be overlooked or sacrificed for the benefit of other responsibilities. Preventing workplace accidents before they happen can save you both time and money that would alternatively be spent on a lawsuit.

According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, “The best workers’ compensation claim, of course, is the one that never happens.” Understandably, a costly settlement is the last thing you have time for. Keep your workers safe and protect your bottom line by using our software to stay up to date on all important maintenance needs.

You can simultaneously preserve worker safety and remain OSHA compliant by investing in our intelligent, easy-to-use software. ItemAware conveniently tracks all your calibration, maintenance, and inspection due dates and reminds you of impending deadlines.

Alerting You of What’s Next.

Additional layers of oversight are never a bad thing. Alerts serve as the extra hand you need to get the job done right while promoting a safe work environment for your employees.

You know all too well that keeping track of maintenance records along with inspection dates is a weighty job. When ignored, the consequences can be significant. Avoid these potential repercussions by setting up alert reminders in ItemAware to ensure that you never miss a safety related deadline again.

Compliance ItemAware RFID

Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance and RFID

RFID can help businesses pass audits and fulfill requirements imposed by the Sarbanes-Oxley act (SOX) – a law that has had drastic operational and financial impacts on U.S. companies.  


Nearly twenty years ago, in 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was created to hold publicly traded companies accountable for their financial reporting.

This came after some of the U.S.’s largest companies were exposed for financial scandal. Unethical business practices and falsified financial statements landed these companies in bankruptcy – evaporating employee’s retirement plans and crumbling investor trust in corporations.1

What is Sarbanes-Oxley?

SOX implemented rigorous controls for financial reporting and auditing. This was done to ensure the accuracy of corporate disclosures, with a hefty criminal charge for non-compliance.

With the creation of SOX, companies quickly made investments in controls that would help them pass audits. However, many continue to underestimate the massive undertaking of accounting for assets and rely on a large workforce and static spreadsheets for reporting.

RFID can revolutionize this process – eliminating human error, showing asset status in real-time and being a reliable source for data.

RFID’s Role in Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

RFID is an efficient, accessible technology that collects data from items (think medical supplies, tools, IT assets and anything in between) and provides real-time reports with item status, history, and location.

RFID can play a critical role in SOX compliance by:

  • Increasing Reporting Accuracy:
    • SOX Requirement: A company’s financial statements must be accurate to the best of the executive officer’s and chief financial officer’s knowledge.2
    • RFID Benefit: Assets play a role on a company’s financial statement – and an inaccurate count can lead to errors in reporting. Manual asset tracking is prone to human error and risks this accuracy. Automating this process with RFID diminishes that possibility as readers collect, organize, and report the data. This ensures that everything is accounted for – which can reduce loss rates by as much as 99%.
  • Disclosing in Real-Time:
    • SOX Requirement: Section 409 of the Sarbanes-Oxley act requires that material changes in a company’s financial condition or operations are required to disclose the information on an almost real-time basis (within 48 hours).3
    • RFID Benefit: Automatic data can capture supplies’ real-time information as readers read the RFID tags. This can be done with continual updates or by passive readers that scan an item any time it passes by (such as entering a new location). Software receives this information and organizes it, then feeds it to the user. Users can even get automated alerts when an item’s information changes.
  • Providing Traceable Source Data:
    • SOX Requirement: any source data in financial reports must be traceable and any changes documented.4
    • RFID: Data pulled from RFID readers is easily viewed. All changes to any assets are recorded and kept with the pertaining asset. This allows users to trace all information and keep it updated as changes occur.

Other Benefits of RFID

RFID’s features directly correlate to the SOX requirements mentioned above – but it has other ways it supports this as well:

  • Simple Reporting: RFID makes running reports incredibly easy as data is continuously updated and ready to be pulled at any time. Users can enter the parameters and get up-to-date information within minutes, rather than waiting for a manual count or referencing a previous report.
  • ERP Integration: ERP systems are often employed to help with SOX compliance. RFID software, such as ItemAware, can easily integrate with these systems making it easier to share and pull information.


Ensuring that your company is meeting all requirements to Sarbanes-Oxley is crucial, and RFID can make that process easier.
