Honeywell and Microsoft Collaborate to Strengthen User Experience for Enterprise-Grade Mobile Devices
July 14, 2016
- The Dolphin 75e mobile computer is the first in a series of devices from Honeywell designed to take full advantage of the modern interface introduced by the Windows Embedded 8.1 platform. Honeywell's product road map relying on Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld will offer a comprehensive set of solutions aimed to make businesses more agile, reduce IT management costs and increase employee productivity.
- Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld, the successor to the widely adopted Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating systems, offers enterprises compelling reasons to migrate, including enhanced security, extended support lifecycle, including the ability to upgrade to Windows 10, a consistent user experience across desktop PCs and rugged devices, rapid deployment of applications and a low total cost of ownership.
- Powered by Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld, the Dolphin 75e provides a modern touch interface built on a powerful processor architecture. It is ideally suited to support organizations that need to optimize productivity and onboard new workers quickly in a variety of workflows, including inventory and asset management, shelf stocking, customer engagement, check-in and reservations, and quality and auditing.
- Independent software vendors and solution providers can harness the added functionality of Honeywell's latest solution and operating system platform to create applications that give mobile professionals access to richer content faster and more efficiently with decreased development time and costs.
- Taylor Smith, general manager of mobility, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility: "By working with Microsoft to deploy Windows Embedded 8.1 on our latest rugged mobile device, with the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 in the future, we allow enterprises to protect their investments and maximize platform performance, ultimately helping them to conduct operations in a variety of environments. This joint effort addresses one of the biggest challenges our customers face successfully managing operating system demands."
- Rodney Clark, general manager of OEM IoT Device Experience, Microsoft: "Collaborating with Honeywell allows us to work with a global service and support network that fully understands the handheld terminal space. By focusing our Windows Embedded 8.1 operating system on industry devices, and combining with Honeywell's next-generation devices, we are fully committed to support productivity gains and enhanced flexibility for customers now and into the future."
