ItemAware combines high-end enterprise RFID readers and enhanced smartphones with cloud infrastructure to provide a seamless solution. The company was stuck with an external RFID vendor platform that wasn’t scalable. To meet scalability requirements, ItemAware wanted to build a platform that would allow them to expand their services and meet the needs of their existing client base.

“We had a very complex UI/UX project that needed to be completed within a tight timeframe. We chose FM because it was clear they had the right combination of high-level strategy and design skills. We were not disappointed!”
The external RFID platform didn’t get much investment to be scalable enough and meet client demand. ItemAware wanted to build its solution to allow them to grow or add features over time to fix the issues.
ItemAware did not have experienced mobile or web developers and needed an external team to present knowledge. They faced challenges with both hardware integration and cloud integration.
The platform required big data streams from hundreds of scanners to be filtered into groups of what is essential to the client. Their external vendor couldn’t support this feature, limiting ItemAware’s ability to meet client needs.
FM designed and developed a scalable, sophisticated asset tracking platform and an inventory scheduling software product for ItemAware.
The user-focused components developed for iOS, Android, and web, enabled multi-modal scanning (RFID, Barcode, Manual), sophisticated asset tracking and inventory scheduling, dashboard analytics, reporting, and more.
Workflow management, complete task assignment, notifications & alerts ensured efficiency and transparency. It benefited employees responsible for daily tracking and managers who can track productivity and quickly identify issues.
ItemAware had successful large deployments with clients, like US governmental agencies and manufacturers, who had used their previous platform.
Successful productization of ItemAware’s platform means they have seen adoption within major industries while expanding into new ones.
Innovations like combining antennas with RFID tags have adopted several large enterprise customers looking to make a switch.
ItemAware boasts that they are helping their clients achieve a 98% reduction loss in prevention costs and a 54% decrease of reduction error costs.
