In a project-driven business, the ability to deliver engineering and construction projects on time and on budget depends on having materials available exactly when they’re needed. You need a supply chain with perfect timing. Anything less can result in missed project deadlines, late penalty fees, and disappointed customers. Ordering more materials than you need “just to be safe” creates unnecessary storage costs and increases the risks of theft, loss, or obsolescence.
If your company manufactures industrial supplies, you must provide a reliable, on-time supply of products to support your project-driven customers. RFgen Mobile Solutions for the Engineering, Construction, and Industrial Supply Industry provides real-time, accurate visibility to your inventory of materials and assets from anywhere.
With RFgen mobile solutions, you can:
RFgen's mobile supply chain solutions includes inventory management, fixed asset management, and field service and are fully integrated with leading ERP systems. RFgen gives project managers accurate, real-time visibility into inventory levels of parts and materials. Without real-time inventory control, project managers may order excess amounts of materials, or worse, fail to order items that will hold up the project schedule. An up-to-date inventory also helps project managers to submit bids with more confidence concerning cost and completion dates.
In addition to the necessary parts and materials, projects managers need the right tools and equipment to complete projects. Whether it’s vehicles, construction tools or even IT assets, an unavailable machine can be just as detrimental to a project as delayed materials. Your company must proactively manage fixed assets, so they can be shared between multiple projects and managers. RFgen Asset Management Software can help you leverage expensive fixed assets for maximum utilization while tracking their performance and location at all times.
Your employees don’t stay in one place, so why should your operational data? When you send project managers into the field with paperwork on clipboards, they face a greater risk of errors and the inventory and fixed asset data in your ERP isn’t updated in real-time. The gap between when data is collected and when it’s entered can create inventory mix-ups and billing delays. Instead, trade clipboards for tablets and send RFgen on mobile devices out to job sites to capture signatures and collect information from a mobile device both on and off-network.
