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.

Compliance Features Inventory Management ItemAware

ItemAware – Inventory Management Made Easy

You may have heard us talk about ItemAware but do you know how our intuitive, modern software can help you keep track of your “things” while allowing you the freedom to focus on your job at hand? Let our cutting-edge software take the headache out of inventory management.

Better yet, ItemAware doesn’t just stop at asset tracking and item management. Our innovative technology takes the stress out of compliance, prioritizes worker safety, and eliminates time spent searching for your most important equipment. Read more below about the features ItemAware can offer you including keeping detailed compliance records, real-time tool tracking, and more.


Preserve worker safety and remain OSHA compliant with calibration, maintenance, and inspection due dates tracked conveniently within our software.

Keeping track of maintenance records coupled with inspection dates can be a job all of its own. Setup alert reminders in ItemAware to ensure that you never miss a compliance deadline again.

Worker compensation settlements are both costly and time consuming. According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, “approximately 15 percent of the Ohio workers’ compensation claims among workers in the utilities industry result in losing eight days or more from work and cost an average of $46,000”. Your cost of doing business should not include a costly settlement. Keep your workers safe and protect your bottom line by using our software to stay up to date on all important maintenance needs.

ItemAware offers more than just maintenance tracking. Review the graphic below to learn more about the additional compliance benefits of ItemAware.

Failure to remain OSHA compliant can result in significant financial penalties as well as unwanted legal issues for your company. Prevent these fines while simultaneously prioritizing worker safety by allowing ItemAware to keep detailed inspection records for you.

Map View

With ItemAware, you will have a map view of all assets and their exact location. This feature allows you to drill down into each individual truck to see your equipment. At the touch of a finger, our software gives you the confidence to know right where your tools are exactly when you need them whenever, wherever you are.

The graphic below shows you how easy it is to view the location of your tools and trucks. Additionally, users can quickly glance at their mobile device and know if they have all items (green thumbs up), if an item is in the wrong location (orange thumbs up), or if any items are missing (red thumbs down).

ItemAware also makes your tools fully traceable and visible to you around the clock. Did you know the utility industry estimates a 30% annual loss rate of tools: i.e., upwards of $900,000,000 “lost” items annually? Cut down on theft and lost inventory by keeping a history of your item’s current and last known locations.

Our customers say it best. “In the time that we’ve had ItemAware running, we’ve never had to buy another tool… if we reduce our tool loss by 20%, we could save millions.”” – Current Customer, Anonymity Requested

Need to know where your trucks are located at all times? No problem. ItemAware gives you the flexibility to check the precise location of your trucks whether they are stationed in neighborhoods, driving across the country on highways, or anywhere in between. Tracking your trucks and equipment has never been so easy!

ItemAware was built with you in mind. We know that you don’t have time to waste learning how to use complicated software. Our intuitive design and clear prompts reduce the learning curve. You and your team will be up and running in no time.

Always Scanning

ItemAware is always working for you! Our system is always on, reading tools continually. This means you know the current status of each item and you do not have to rely on workers to keep inventories current. This real-time data, made available by the use of geo location in the field, is an invaluable advantage that our competitor’s software cannot offer you.

Inventory Management Simplified

Our cutting-edge software is automatic – meaning no user involvement is needed. Manual tracking and updating item information is both time-consuming and prone to human error, resulting in lost time, effort and money. ItemAware changes that story by automating the inventory process.

Time is money. Decrease your money spent and stay on track with your budget by lowering the amount of effort needed to track your inventory. Manual scanning significantly increases the number of employees you need as well as the amount of hours required to get the job done. Eliminate the burdensome task of scanning barcodes by letting ItemAware automatically – and accurately – do the job for you.

Did we mention that ItemAware is mobile-friendly? We know that you can’t be stuck behind your desk all day – with ItemAware you don’t have to be.  You can easily swipe and view all item information on your mobile device without the hassle of being tied to the office.
