Mobile Warehouse Inventory Management

Integrate and extend ERP inventory data with RFgen Mobile Data Collection and Warehouse Inventory Management Software for real-time visibility and traceability.

Get complete visibility in your supply chain

Whether you’re adding suppliers, carrying more products, creating new channels or going global, paper-based and manual data collection processes can hinder your ability to scale and meet new demands. With manual processes, you can’t achieve real-time visibility into your inventory, are at a higher risk for errors, and can’t confidently track items as they move through your supply chain.

You may need automated data collection if you have:

  • A high rate of errors and returns.
  • Inefficient utilization of employees.
  • Excessive overstock or run out of items.
  • Messy warehouse or storage facilities.
  • Misplaced or lost inventory.
  • Lengthy, resource-intensive inventory (cycle) counts.

Automate data collection

With RFgen and inventory tracking based on barcode labels, you can achieve up to 60% greater efficiency in the warehouse or shop floor and boost accuracy by as much as 40% over paper-based processes.

RFgen Mobile Data Collection and Inventory Management Software enable accurate, real-time visibility of your inventory so you can:

  • Improve employee productivity and squeeze cost out of your operations.
  • Better forecast demand, minimize safety stock and avoid stockouts.
  • Eliminate manual data entry, reduce errors and minimize costly returns.
  • Meet customer expectations for overnight, 2-day, and/or free shipping.
  • Minimize shrinkage due to lost or stolen inventory.
  • Confidently make decisions that grow the business.

Comply with government & industry regulations

Industries such as food and beveragelife sciences (pharmaceuticals and medical device), and aerospace and defense operate under strict government regulations such as DFARS, ePedigree, the FDA Bioterrorism Act, and more. Failure to comply can result in costly penalties like judicial action, criminal convictions, fines, restitution, imprisonment, not to mention the risk of lost customers and revenue.

To respond quickly to audits and minimize the impact of a recall, suppliers must know where every item in their supply chain came from and where each finished product was last shipped to.

Using RFgen’s mobile data collection and inventory management software, you can:

  • Trace food from the field to the fork through growers, processors, wholesalers, distributors, and ultimately to retail grocery stores.
  • Follow the path of drugs and devices from manufacturing to distribution and retail sales, so you can protect consumers and patients.
  • Respond accurately to audits in hours, rather than days or weeks.
  • Contain the scope of recalls by tracking specific lots from suppliers to customers, so you only withdraw affected products.

Consider voice-enabled mobile solutions for even greater speed and accuracy.

Incorporate License Plating, or pallet labels, for simplified management of like-items packed together in a container under a single barcode. This allows you to track a variety of key product information and maximize movement of items through the warehouse or shop floor, and streamline staging activities for shipping.
