ItemPath is simple to use, and it's easy to get started - just a device with a modern browser and an internet connection.
You don't need special gear to get going, but you can add scanners, printers and sensors if you want.
Device with a Browser
ItemPath runs on any computer or tablet with a modern browser and an internet connection. You don't need to install any extra software.
It doesn't matter what platform or operating system is used. ItemPath works with them all.
Depending on how you identify your items, you will need a way to record Item IDs into ItemPath.
The most common ways of capturing those codes:
- Keyboard: typing in the code manually
- Bar code scanner or 2D imager
- RFID reader
- Direct Part Mark reader
These printers connect directly with ItemPath over the internet. This means you don't need to pair them with a particular device or install any printer drivers. And you can run ItemPath in a browser on a totally different network if you want. Why is this helpful? That way, you can be connected to ItemPath from your phone or tablet on a cellular network and print without needing any setup at all.

- Internet Explorer 8+
- Firefox 4+
- Google Chrome 10+
- Safari 4+

There's no other software to install or maintain. Even to print labels, you don't need any printer drivers. Everything runs off the cloud.
