  • Warehouse Management

    Keep Your Operations Running 24/7 with Remote Warehouse Management Solutions

RFgen High Availability Distributed Solutions

Whether your manufacturing and warehouse operations are linked across multiple locations, outsourced, or around the globe, it’s important for your business to remain operational. But these challenging scenarios may make it difficult for you to keep moving inventory, receiving goods, and filling orders around the clock:

  • Remote or off-shore locations
  • Poor or volatile connectivity
  • Disconnected environments
  • Regularly scheduled ERP maintenance or downtime

It’s not practical or cost-effective to make every site self-contained and self-sufficient. With RFgen’s High Availability Distributed Solutions, your operations, no matter how remote, can continue to collect data and process jobs regardless of the connection state to your ERP or other enterprise back-end system.


Reliable 24-Hour Data Collection

RFgen high availability warehouse management software enables your employees to continue operating even when the ERP system is not available. More than simple “store and forward” or batch operations, RFgen’s warehouse software employs advanced replication techniques, intelligent queuing and lightly-coupled architecture to help reduce costs while supporting reliable 24-hour data collection.

  • Enjoy 99.9% system uptime for critical 24/7 operations.
  • Easily deal with the unexpected by continuing to collect accurate data and keep working during WAN outages, hardware failures and periods of sluggish network activity.
  • Work during scheduled maintenance and backups without missing a beat.
  • Update inventory for the entire enterprise in “close to real-time” so that remote locations can be aware of the inventory levels and transfers happening in your supply chain.

How RFgen High Availability Distributed Solutions Work

Inventory management, receiving and shipping are core operations that must continue even if connections to remote enterprise systems are down. Attempting to solve this IT challenge with separate warehouse systems at each location creates a nightmare of complicated interfaces and costly data management projects. Fortunately, RFgen High Availability Distributed solutions can help.

Real-Time Data Collection

Ordinarily, the RFgen server does not maintain a local copy of transaction data so we’re able to keep ERP updates as close to real-time as possible and there is only one “single source of truth.”

High Availability Data Collection

However when high availability is required, it’s necessary to manage data and communications differently to ensure updates are properly managed in the event the back-end system is unavailable.

architecture high-availability

RFgen uses a combination of technologies to keep your remote locations operating and functional when the WAN is down, slow, or the enterprise back-end system is unavailable. First, a local database is created in order to store and manage transaction data while it waits to be sent to the ERP or other back-end system. In addition to a local store, database replication can be used to create a backup, or to synchronize multiple RFgen systems that are all working in a high availability scenario.

RFgen then employs an internal application called the Transaction Manager. This robust queuing mechanism keeps track of the local activity performed and utilizes the replication and database views to bring all of the data together to provide an accurate view to the local user. As soon as the enterprise system becomes available, the Transaction Manager intelligently submits the data.
