As mobile devices become increasingly ubiquitous in warehouse settings for inventory management and other purposes, facilities managers need to make sure these tools are yielding the highest return on investment possible. While many enterprise mobile applications claim to be the best for warehouse management, few come close to the quality and reliability of RFgen's Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World mobile applications. Oracle has become a top name in the IT and supply chain industries for a reason, and JDE advanced warehousing solutions are some of the best in the business.
RFgen offers a number of flexible JDE mobile applications, and here are the four that warehouse managers everywhere should consider using:
- Inventory Management to better optimize available warehouse space and improve customer service efforts.
- Purchase Order Processing to more effectively manage and maintain purchasing processes in conjunction with a centralized IT solution like ERP.
- Sales Order Processing lets facilities managers more effectively facilitate the pick, pack and ship processes used, ensuring greater accuracy and ease of use.
- Warehouse Management mobile apps extend the functionality of legacy management software to devices like tablets and smartphones for overseeing issues like cycle counts, transfer confirmations, receipts and inventory transfers.
"Our customers live in an increasingly mobile world and demand real-time access to important business data, regardless of time or location," said Lyle Ekdahl, group vice president and general manager of Oracle's JD Edwards. He added, "With the mobile apps, users can closely manage approvals, inventory and sales orders in the office, in the factory or on the road."
Considering the Entire Warehouse Management Environment
Enterprise mobility initiatives and bring-your-own-device policies can yield tremendous benefits, but only if companies equip employees with tools designed with smartphones and tablets in mind. Warehouse managers looking to make the facilities they oversee far more efficient would be wise to consider implementing some or all of RFgen's JD Edwards mobile applications now available.
"Intuitive, easy-to-use mobile applications and services help organizations make faster and better decisions, while giving employees a more flexible work environment," said Rebecca Wettemann, vice president of research at Nucleus Research. "Organizations need to enable their employees to access and leverage critical business information in real time."
