ABOUT

- OUR STORY -

Every single time we go to the supermarket, we forget something. We are so tired of having to go back to purchase that forgotten item. What a waste of time and resources. We noticed soon after that the same happened to us in many facets of life, from work related presentations, to travel arrangements, and on and on. We needed a technology that would track, be tailor to the task, and encourage us to use it.

- OUR MISSION -

Minimize errors in every facet of life.

- OUR HIGHER GOAL -

Since we know that one of the ways to minimize errors is to have better knowledge, we have designed our "ARE YOU READY" feature to the consumer with emphasis on the physical security of your family, self, and the protection of the Environment. So yes, our higher goal is to Protect you and the Planet.

TEAM

None of us are perfect, and we all make mistakes. Our imperfection can lead to mishaps with varying degrees of seriousness, from burning a cake to missing a step in surgery.
