With RFgen Off-Network Mobility Solutions, you can:

  • Eliminate paper-based processes, saving hours of manual data entry.
  • Improve speed and accuracy of information collected at job sites.
  • Enable automated updates to your ERP from roaming workers, even in areas of limited or nonexistent connectivity.
  • Update inventory levels from job sites as soon as parts are consumed or products are sold.
  • Access technical documentation to speed up problem resolution and improve fix rates in the first visit.

Move from paper to tablet

Whether you’re installing solar panels in a customer’s home or delivering ice cream to grocery stores, your mobile workers are plagued with paperwork. Paper tracking of field activities is slow, error prone and workers may rush in order to get to their next job, leaving a scrawl of handwriting for the home office to transcribe. Porting forms from clipboard to a mobile workforce software solution and mobile devices means:

  • Data is captured accurately and legibly.
  • Mobile forms ensure all required data is entered before workers can move forward.
  • Information is automatically transferred to your ERP – no back office data entry.
  • Verification at the point of delivery with electronic signature captures, photos and GPS data.
  • Faster invoicing for improved cash flow. 

Collect data in challenging areas

Workers can have trouble getting data from their mobile devices to their ERP if network connectivity is spotty or nonexistent. When you use RFgen Off-Network Mobility Solutions, data is stored on the local device and sent over the network as soon as it’s available again.

This is useful for:

  • Field service operations and direct store deliveries
  • Accelerated cycle counts that don’t wait on a response back from the ERP after each scan
  • Facilities with unique areas like cold storage or wine cellars
  • Warehouses with high reaching inventory that blocks wireless signals
  • Off-shore or underground operations like oil, gas or mining
  • Places where cellular networks are prohibited (e.g. hospitals, areas with explosive materials, etc.)
Provide an exceptional customer experience

By automating data collection and paper-based processes, your mobile workers are empowered to finish jobs faster, increase initial visit fix rates and provide status, work history and product information to customers in real-time. Their ability to access the information they need to complete jobs quickly and completely and wrap-up any “paperwork” on the spot leaves your clients impressed, satisfied and more likely to recommend you.

“After implementing RFgen on tablets, our client called asking if a high priority water system had been sampled. I was able to tell them it was sampled two days before. Having the ability to provide that information instantaneously was impressive. It kind of shocked them. It definitely shocked me, because before it would have taken two weeks to get that data.”
