Honeywell, SOTI Secure 1 Million Industrial Devices

Honeywell and Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider SOTI have achieved a major milestone, remotely managing more than one million devices worldwide.

Accordingly, the collaboration between Honeywell’s mobile computers and SOTI’s mobility management solutions allows businesses to exceed conventional hardware lifecycles through remote monitoring, diagnosis, and repair.

The SOTI ONE Platform, protects corporate data on mobile devices through a suite of services. Thus, enhancing data security, facilitating software installations, and providing seamless integration with enterprise IT systems.

“With the SOTI partnership, customers have gained control and visibility into their fleet of powerful Honeywell mobile devices at all times, helping to improve operational efficiency and enhancing customer experience,” said David Barker, president of Honeywell’s Productivity Solutions and Services business.

In addition, Barker said Honeywell’s suite of handheld, wearable, and vehicle-mounted mobile computers can keep pace with the demands of a highly mobile workforce. Particularly, they can suit in industries from warehousing to healthcare.

Simplifies Monitoring

Honeywell’s partnership with SOTI has demonstrated continued growth. Thus, helping bring greater accuracy, time savings and reduced troubleshooting costs to customers. The companies have worked together to help thousands of organizations maximize their asset performance. This includes transportation and logistics providers.

SOTI provides complete lifecycle management of Honeywell devices through the SOTI ONE Platform. For that reason, it simplifies security and management through a single, easy-to-use interface. This has helped lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve the return on investment (ROI) for retailers, transportation and logistics companies, healthcare providers, government workers, and more.

Once devices are at the end of their lifecycle or customers want to upgrade their devices, Honeywell will repurpose many of the internal components. Hence, ensuring critical parts are available when needed in their spare pool inventory. This also helps reduce the environmental footprint of e-waste.  

“Integrating mobile technology to enhance the customer experience is crucial in a rapidly changing work environment. Success requires optimizing every customer touchpoint with a mobile-first approach and enabling workers to leverage data at their fingertips,” said Musthafa Ebadi, COO of SOTI.

Faster Development, Deployment

Honeywell’s rugged devices rely on Mobility Edge platform. This is a unified hardware and software platform that offers customers a stable option and a potential competitive advantage with yearly upgrades. Designed for Android, Mobility Edge devices share a common core platform. Thus, enabling faster development and deployment of software and security patches.

With the Honeywell Android 14 guarantee, the life expectancy of a device also expands further, helping decrease TCO and increase ROI.
