-- The RFgen Mobile Framework uses handheld scanners, cutting edge software and advanced bar coding technology to quickly gather and interpret information about shop floor activity, materials usage and inventory requirements. Werner began testing the system in 2011 and has experienced dramatic improvements in efficiency following the complete integration. “With RFgen, we are able to control the inventory levels of our materials (raw and finished) and control our inventory reporting processes.” said Tim Slater, Werner’s Information Systems Manager. “RFgen Mobile Framework’s tool set provides us with the capabilities to quickly develop mobile applications. This allows Werner’s IT staff to provide real-time access to data from the plant and warehouse floor, giving the Werner users knowledge of exactly what materials are on hand and where they are.” According to Slater, Werner chose RFgen for its flexibility and direct integration with their JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Xe system to bring their antiquated previous data collection solution up to date.
