Phoenix, AZ— Honeywell Process Solutions has formed a relationship with Symbol Technologies Inc. to provide wireless asset management solutions. Honeywell will integrate its asset management software with Symbol’s mobile computing, wireless infrastructure and advanced data capture devices. This will enable users to collect data, monitor assets, and control operations from anywhere in their facility. These mobile asset management solutions are expected to be available later in 2004’s first quarter (1Q04).

'Honeywell Process Solutions provides extensive expertise in asset management solutions,' says Kevin Prouty, Symbol’s global market leader for manufacturing solutions. 'Symbol Technologies is providing a comprehensive, rugged mobile solution along with Honeywell's application that will enable plant managers and other key personnel to access important decision-making information from anywhere on the plant floor, and free them from stationary workstations.'

Peter Zornio, Honeywell’s product marketing director, adds that, 'This will give our customers the best of both worlds. Symbol is a market leader in enterprise mobility solutions, and Honeywell is a leader in asset management software.”

Symbol reports that its solutions capture, move and manage information in real time from the point of activity to the point of decision. Its solutions integrate advanced data capture technology, rugged mobile computers, wireless infrastructure, enabling software and high-ROI applications from its business partners and Symbol Enterprise Mobility Services.
