Whether your company manufactures pharmaceuticals or medical devices, your products make people’s lives better. That’s why it is critically important for you to have complete visibility of your supply chain from one end to the other.
RFgen Mobile Solutions for the Life Sciences Industry track and trace materials and finished products to reduce supply chain risk, guard against counterfeit products or ingredients, and minimize the impact of any potential recall. In a heavily regulated industry, automated data collection helps strengthen the accuracy of record-keeping for compliance with regulations and better transparency. It can also significantly improve operational efficiency.
With proven integration to leading ERP systems, RFgen replaces manual or paper-based processes with automation and mobility, helping life sciences companies to:
Your customers’ good health—and sometimes their lives—are on the line if a drug or medical device needs to be recalled. A poorly executed recall can irrevocably damage a company’s reputation and consumer trust.
Paper-based tracking processes are too slow and error-prone to respond effectively to compliance audits or product recalls. Instead, RFgen automates data collection on mobile devices with support for barcoding and RFID to help you track ingredients or parts as well as finished products by lot numbers, batch numbers and serial numbers.
Traceability information collected by RFgen can be used to create ePedigrees in compliance with the Prescription Drug Marketing Act. Additionally, you can trace the complete history of a batch of pharmaceuticals, in line with the requirements of Good Manufacturing Compliance (GMC).

Optimize receiving and putaway, ensuring quality control processes and sending frozen or refrigerated drugs to the right location. Complete work orders efficiently and send materials to the right place at the right time to prevent manufacturing disruptions. RFgen supports automated data collection throughout your manufacturing processes, including integration with shop floor and automated warehouse machinery.
When it comes to processing sales orders and replenishing inventory, RFgen Warehouse Director provides advanced picking methodologies and faster routes through the warehouse. Split orders between pickers, speed up cycle counts and lock down your inventory management.

RFgen can collect data in the field or on the road, making it perfect for capturing proof of delivery (signatures, photos) on a mobile device and transferring data effortlessly to your ERP. Data can be stored locally on the device when a remote professional is out of network range. Field sales professionals can manage inventory at a local level, streamlining the process for reordering pharmaceuticals or durable medical devices as well as locating expired products for removal from shelves.
