ItemAware: The Multifaceted Asset Tracking Solution

Set up and ready for Work Truck Week to begin.

Aware Innovations would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who joined us at Work Truck Week in Indianapolis, Indiana. This one-of-a-kind event was a great opportunity to see our robust asset tracking software in action while learning firsthand the breadth of its application across many industries. It was our pleasure to meet so many interested patrons and show them exactly how our intuitive software can go to work for them.

ItemAware is the one-size-fits-all asset tracking solution that can be applied to a wide range of market sectors. Our robust, modern software has demonstrated measurable benefits for companies operating in the utility, IT, and medical industries. Cross-industry benefits gained by maximizing the utilization of ItemAware include significantly increasing productivity while simultaneously reducing costs.

Continue reading to learn how ItemAware’s features can be maximized to promote operational efficiencies while cutting unnecessary expenditures.

Maps: Making Your Inventory Fully Visible at All Times

Having the right equipment, in the right place, at the right time is easier said than done. Manual inventory tracking is prone to human error and lacks the capacity to keep counts current in real-time. Our industry-leading asset tracking solution, ItemAware, automates the inventory process by giving you constant, easy-to-interpret access to the exact location of your tools, equipment, and materials.

With ItemAware’s support, you can feel confident that your team will always have the tools and equipment they need to get the job done right the first time.

Automating Inventory Processes: Talent Shouldn’t be Wasted on Menial Tasks

“Any diligent asset management process requires constant involvement from staff but automating the process with RFID requires far less of it.” – Wes Clark, Office of the Chief Information Officer, US Patent & Trademark Office

You hired your employees for a reason. Each team member has the expertise your company needs to be profitable as well as maintain your status as an industry leader. When an employee isn’t being fully utilized, they begin to become disengaged, and their productivity suffers. A study by Gallup found that disengaged employees cost their companies the equivalent of 18% of their yearly salary. This is a shocking statistic that is easily preventable with the implementation of our asset tracking solution, ItemAware. 

One of our customers, the Defense Logistics Agency’s Red River Army Depot, reduced wasted personnel hours by 87% by partnering with Aware Innovations to track 23,000 military vehicles using cellular GPS. This use case proves that you can stop wasting manpower on tasks that can easily be handled by our intuitive asset tracking software. ItemAware automates the inventory process, taking the menial tasks off your employees’ plates and allowing them to refocus their expertise on more profitable goals.

Choke Points: Prevent Misplaced Equipment and Theft

Replacing equipment that isn’t actually lost can quickly cut into your bottom line while also being a barrier to productivity. This financial bleed is only further aggravated when theft inevitably enters the picture. ItemAware’s constant scanning capabilities gives companies the ability to prevent item misplacement while also putting a permanent end to theft. When your employees have the equipment they need readily available, operational efficiencies increase as does revenue streams.

Companies are protecting their budgets by staying lean with the number of tools and assets they have on hand. Our intuitive asset tracking software allows companies to keep quantities right-sized by tracking real-time inventories, eliminating the cost of excess equipment.

Alerts: Never Wonder Where Your Equipment Is at Again

ItemAware gives you the freedom to set your own alerts, ensuring that you are always in the know whenever an item leaves or arrives at a specified location. Critical alerts promote employee accountability by forcing users to check items in and out, giving you a reliable record of who had what equipment last.

History: Because Record Keeping Matters

A log of an item’s location, maintenance, and repair history is an invaluable resource. ItemAware conveniently tracks all of this data and more in a convenient, user-friendly format that can be accessed 24/7, saving you time on tedious record keeping.

User Access: Assign Permissions Exactly as You See Fit

Because no two jobs are ever the same, not every user needs to have the same software permissions. ItemAware allows you to decide who needs what access by giving you the ability to determine the capabilities of each user in the software.

Employees have enough data to sift through – they don’t need to further fall into the trap of information overload. Setting the exact permissions for every users helps your employees increase their productivity by limiting their access to need-to-know information only.

Status: Notetaking Has Never Been So Easy

Even people with the best memories cannot be expected to recall all details at all times – especially when hundreds of pieces of tools and equipment are involved. Our intuitive asset tracking software allows users to view, edit, and take note of an item’s current status. With ItemAware, you will never again waste time trying to remember which tools are broken, active, in storage, etc.

ItemAware: Your Answer to Increase Productivity While Decreasing Costs

Whether you are tracking tools, IT assets, medical equipment, or patients, ItemAware is your solution to productivity and cost issues. Our modern asset tracking software has multifaceted capabilities that can be tailored to meet your unique needs, no matter your work environment, while automating your inventory processes.

What are you waiting for? A better, more reliable solution to all of your asset tracking needs is just a phone call away.

Tool Loss Mitigation

Did you know that the utility industry estimates a 30% annual loss rate of tools, i.e., upwards of $900,000,000 “lost” items annually? This startling statistic is proof that the utility sector is in desperate need of a new, intuitive way to track tools and equipment. At Aware Innovations, we didn’t just listen to the complex issues you are facing – we invented a much-needed solution to this expensive, time-consuming, and often frustrating problem.

Important equipment can easily be misplaced on a busy job site – especially when thieves see an opportunity to steal high-dollar assets. Tool tracking can protect your company’s budget and prevent theft by locating and monitoring the last known location of every item being used. Put an end to wasting resources on replacing lost and stolen equipment by investing in ItemAware to ensure that you always have the right tools on hand whenever, and wherever you need them.

Review the graphic below to learn more about how ItemAware works.

What if we told you that you can reduce your tool loss rate to nearly zero and likely see a return on your investment within 12 months by utilizing our cutting-edge technology? This is just one of the many benefits you could see by adopting our innovative tool tracking software.

ItemAware’s true value is found in our customer’s successes.

Tool duplication is a real problem that carries costly consequences. When you don’t know what you have, you end up replacing tools that aren’t actually lost. Avoid accidental duplication of tools and stop wasting money on excess by investing in ItemAware.

Compliance Tracking

ItemAware conveniently tracks all impending maintenance deadlines and reminds you of upcoming calibration and inspection due dates, making certain that you never miss an important deadline again.

Increase Productivity

Getting the job done right the first time is an integral part of excellent customer service. Efficient processes not only lead to happy customers but also increases revenue while decreasing wasted resources.

You deserve a system that you can count on as well as inventory counts that are accurate and reliable.
