4 Reasons To Use Mobility Edge For Your Mobile Workforce

The Benefits Of A Unified Platform For Mobile Computing

Taking Control of Your Enterprise Mobile Devices Doesn’t Need to be as Complex as Decoding the Genome

Siloed Provisioning, Multiple Operating Systems and Devices, Proprietary Connectors, and No Single Method for Managing Security: Welcome to the Minefield of Industrial Mobile Device Management.

Today, many organisations have disparate devices in multiple form factors for many uses, a myriad of applications for different tasks, and complex IT infrastructure – all of which are difficult and costly to maintain. These mobile solutions are also built on different technology platforms that force companies into siloed provisioning and application support. It’s a technology minefield. Honeywell’s mobile device platform can help navigate.

Honeywell has the clarity of vision, domain expertise, and solution to your mobile device challenges: Mobility Edge™. Mobility Edge is based upon extensive research gathered from Honeywell’s global community of customers from a range of technologies. Honeywell recognised that businesses wanted a unified hardware and software platform for all form factors – one that allowed for rapid deployments, robust performance, and adaptability to changing needs.

Honeywell completely rethought their approach to meeting the challenges of supporting a mobile workforce, and Mobility Edge was the answer. This unified, dynamic platform for mobile computing is designed to:

  • Accelerate Deployments
  • Optimise Business Performance
  • Extend Lifecycle
  • Strengthen Security

Established service and support data went into the development of Mobility Edge. Honeywell optimised their mobility devices based on the work patterns of many customers and actual users to deliver more realistic testing and precise engineering requirements. Using historical insights from service data, they addressed common failure points during the design phase, making their Mobility Edge products more resilient and stable. They also mined their detailed support data to further improve and refine product quality. By providing a unified hardware and software platform with an agile approach, they can bring you more secure and reliable solutions across your operation.

Mobility Edge offers an integrated, repeatable, scalable approach to workflow automation that is based on a common hardware and software platform. Designed for Android™, it delivers a unified platform that all software solutions are based on. Businesses can develop and deploy faster while reducing development costs.

The Mobility Edge unified platform is composed of:

  • Common Hardware (System On Module, or SOM), which includes the CPU, memory, WWAN (in selected devices), WLAN, Bluetooth®, near-field communication (NFC), and
    Zigbee (in selected devices).
  • Common Operating System Image with support for multiple generations of Android, from Android O through Android R.
  • Common Software Ecosystem that includes not just Honeywell software, but also Honeywell-approved ISVs (independent software vendors).

Together these common elements minimise your company’s cost, effort, and risk. They accelerate your time-to-value so you can start deploying devices into the hands of your mobile workers much faster. And they maximise your ROI by extending the lifecycle of your devices.

Testimonials

"We needed reliable, robust hardware at keen prices, which Renovotec was able to provide" says Accolade Wines’ Senior Inventory Manager. "We had a good look at other companies but this was the one we thought was best."

"Our analysis shows a significant increase in both the items and tonnage picked per hour" says Henry Colbeck’s Financial Director. A snapshot voice performance sample revealed that the tonnage per hour was 29% higher.

"The VM3 rugged devices enable our drivers to be productive from the minute they sit in the Straddle Carrier cab. The touch screen provides ease of use for the driver and the VM3 connectivity options allows our GPS and PLC Systems to be fully integrated. This gives full operational and engineering visibility. Couple that with Solid State Disks means that the unit is very robust for the port environment." Stated Systems Manager, DP World Southampton.

"We now have robust, secure and reliable narrowband network coverage across our site. We’ve also deployed Zebra’s XT15 rugged mobile and Zebra VH10 vehicle-mounted computers that are designed to cope with our industrial environment and connect to both our narrowband and Wi-Fi networks. Add to this the assurance of service and support from Renovotec and we have the trusted platform our teams need to continually connect to our ERP application." Stated MIS manager, the Port of Tilbury

"Renovotec were able to provide the best support and repair package, and match the competition on price," said IMT Managing Director. "We feel very happy having them as a partner in the growth of our business. "This combination of performance and reliability is already creating clear benefits to IMT and its network of clinics"

"Massive thanks to you and your company for resolving our technical issues. Excellent, professional service provided with literally no notice at all. I wish I came to you guys originally, and certainly will going forwards" stated Melrose Textile Co’s Operations Manager

"Can I just firstly say that your Field Technician did a fantastic job on Tuesday. We had got the wearables to a point of configuration but there was still a quite a bit of work to do and ultimately your field technician was invaluable to us on the day sorting these issues out" stated Portwest’s Shift Manager
