Honeywell launches a new hardware & software platform


March 5, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Honeywell announced a new hardware and software platform available in the Middle East for the next-generation of its mobile computers. The devices are used globally by retailers, logistics and transportation providers and distribution centres to increase worker productivity and capture critical data.

Due to its strategic location, vastly improved transport and shipping infrastructure and booming e-commerce market, the Middle East’s transport & logistics sector has been pegged as a key driver of economic diversification. With this in mind, logistics managers, retailers and distribution centre workers need to capitalise on technology to improve cycle times, prevent errors and increase productivity to meet growing consumer demands.

In response this, Honeywell’s Mobility Edge Platform comprises common hardware architecture and a suite of tools on which Honeywell and its partners will build future mobility solutions, which include rugged handheld computers, wearable devices, voice-directed technology, tablets and vehicle-mounted computers.

The platform is designed for Google’s Android Enterprise operating system. It offers a long product lifecycle by supporting current and future versions of Android OS. Additionally, the common platform provides consistency across Honeywell’s next-generation devices and makes it easier for customers to upgrade current models, manage device refreshes and quickly deploy software applications.

Honeywell also announced the DolphinTM CT60 handheld computer, the first new mobile device to run on the Mobility Edge Platform. The rugged device is designed for retail, transportation and logistics workers, offering an extended battery life, high-performance scanning and other productivity features.

“The Middle East is one of the fastest growing e-commerce markets globally, and Honeywell understands the competitive pressures being faced by the region’s retailers and logistics operators in this space. Consumers have high expectations that need to be met, including a desire for faster delivery times, and for their online orders to be shipped free of cost. To respond to these increasing demands, Honeywell saw the need for comprehensive and scalable solutions, and has introduced the Mobility Edge Platform as a result,” says Edmond Mikhael, general manager, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS), Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META).

“Because we built the Mobility Edge Platform with an Android-first mindset, businesses will have the confidence that our devices will support future versions of the operating system without having to make new hardware investments to upgrade their infrastructure. Leveraging a single, unified platform will make adding new devices and testing and deploying business-critical mobile hardware and software easier and faster,” he adds.
