FAIRFIELD, Conn., May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Aid Only, an Acme United Corporation brand, was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Business/Government category in The 16th Annual American Business Awards®.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 11. Tickets are now on sale.

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. First Aid Only was nominated in the Business/Government category for the FAO SafetyHub App.

The innovative FAO SafetyHub App features allow users to set automatic reminders for checking stock levels on first aid cabinets, as well as perform required safety checks and maintenance on third-party fire extinguishers, AEDs and other facility items which require replenishment, service or calibration. The app provides easy-to-use tools for creating and sending supply requisitions to your preferred first aid supplier, company purchasing department, or another selected recipient.

The app is uniquely designed for enterprise customers and safety distributors and lets them create custom integrations into their ecommerce or ERP systems. The system provides email, EDI, and API options as well as the ability to customize the app interface itself. The app is linked to a backend management portal for monitoring and managing requisitions, users, safety items, and consumption data. The app is available for any Android or Apple device.

A Stevie’s Awards judge noted, “The mobile app offers a clean and easy way to navigate user experience which is coupled by a very robust web based back end management solution." The app is a “Good solve for an important topic.”

“We are very pleased to be named the winner of a Bronze Stevie Award–especially for the Business/Government category. This award is a testament to our hard-working team, who are dedicated to building and delivering a digital SmartCompliance™ requisition system and compliance solution that reduces costs for both facilities and offices,” said Brian Olschan, president and chief operating officer, Acme United Corporation. “We appreciate the recognition from the American Business Awards community and will continue to evolve our safety management system to provide our customers the insight they need for cost savings replenishment and OSHA compliance.”

More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
