Requirements

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.

Equipment

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.

Scanner/Reader

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

Printer

ItemPath partnered with Zebra Technologies to be the first in the world to offer cloud connected label printing. We support Zebra's Link-OS models.

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.

Software

All you'll need is a modern browser to user ItemPath. Here are the browsers we officially support (on any operating system):

  • Internet Explorer 8+
  • Firefox 4+
  • Google Chrome 10+
  • Safari 4+
  • Opera 9+

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.
