Honeywell has launched its Honeywell Marketplace, an online hub for enterprises to find and purchase innovative software solutions, technologies and services to help improve their productivity and increase efficiency.
The Honeywell Marketplace is an enterprise app store that enables customers to discover, evaluate and download business-critical software for a wide range of industries – including retail, distribution centres, transportation, logistics, manufacturing and healthcare, manufacturing.
The site features solutions from Honeywell as well as dozens of third-party software vendors. Examples of software currently available include asset tracking, point-of-sale software for retailers, push-to-talk communications, password management for mobile devices and medical tracking for hospitals.
“In the past, IT managers across the region would spend countless hours researching and evaluating specific enterprise software solutions to deploy advanced technology in their respective organisations, so they could solve their business challenges,” said Miroslav Kafedzhiev, vice president and general manager, Middle East, Russia, Turkey and Africa, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. “Today, we have streamlined that entire process – from searching to purchasing and deployment. Our customers want the same easy-to-use shopping and downloading options that they experience with consumer-focused mobile app stores.”
“A retailer, for example, may need different solutions for enabling customer checkout, tracking mobile devices, managing inventory, routing returned merchandise and communicating with store associates,” explained Kafedzhiev. “At Honeywell, we provide a single source, optimised for mobile devices, to find and purchase these solutions and more.”
Available apps include Honeywell’s Guided Work Solutions for voice-directed activities in distribution centres and the GoalPostTM labor management system, which offers detailed analytics on worker performance.
The Honeywell Marketplace also provides software vendors a flexible approach to building their applications and connecting with customers, which can lead to increased sales opportunities. Software vendors can conduct transactions directly through the online store to simplify the ordering and deployment processes. The Honeywell Marketplace manages the billing process, which eliminates the need for software vendors to invest in costly backend payment and invoicing systems. Vendors who offer direct purchase and downloading from the Marketplace will have their apps reviewed by Honeywell software engineers, which includes a cybersecurity testing and validation process.
