Warehouses are big targets for automation and optimization because they represent a major hub in your supply chain infrastructure. Businesses are asking warehouse managers to cut costs, improve throughput, increase accuracy—without more workers. Barcoding your inventory and arming workers with scanners may not be enough to achieve your goals.
RFgen's mobile data collection and warehouse automation solutions maximize the efficiency of your workflows and can help you:
Many warehouse managers work off a clipboard to determine priorities for orders, when to replenish an item and who should take which tasks. They rely on experience and estimates to know if they will complete the jobs slated for the day. When equipped with a mobile device running RFgen Warehouse Director, managers can track what jobs are left, who can do them, and predict if more resources are needed. They can set inventory thresholds to keep popular items stocked. And they can monitor worker productivity.
Are you looking for a "lite" warehouse management system? RFgen’s straight-forward, easy-to-use warehouse automation solution can help you solve real-world challenges in your warehouse in a cost-effective way—without the complexity, expense and prolonged implementations typically associated with an advanced enterprise Warehouse Management System (WMS).
If your team still picks against a paper pick list, they may take a lot of extra walks around your warehouse and have difficulty enforcing first-in, first-out (FIFO) rules.

With RFgen License Plating, you can intelligently manage a group of items as a single unit. This can improve the efficiency of your warehouse operations and streamline the transfer of inventory within your supply chain as well as to customers, retailers and partners.
RFgen has unlimited connectivity to any type of warehouse equipment and machines and can direct the operation of and collect information from automated warehouse equipment in any state of the art manufacturing facility. Some of the types of warehouse automation RFgen can direct for your ERP include:
Everyone can speak faster than they can type. Operate your warehouse at the speed of voice using the RFgen-Vocollect Voice Solution for even faster receiving, put away, picking, and order assembly. It’s extremely intuitive and very accurate. Even if you are already operating a warehouse with paperless processes and barcode scanning, voice-enabled picking can add up to 25% greater productivity!
Sometimes network connectivity can be spotty within a warehouse or outside in the field. If you experience issues with employees stopping their work, or losing data, when they hit a mobile “dead spot,” consider RFgen Off-Network Mobility Solutions. Information is stored locally and automatically updated to the ERP when it’s available for seamless operations no matter the connection state.
RFgen High Availability Distributed Solutions allows employees to operate during ERP downtime or WAN outages and keeps remote warehouses and locations running non-stop. More than simple “store and forward” or batch operations, RFgen High Availability Distributed Solutions employs advanced techniques for 24-hour data collection. Fail over and load balancing functionality is also available for improved performance and better protection against IT disasters.
