Honeywell launches online enterprise app store

03 Apr 2019

Honeywell has announced the launch of the Honeywell Marketplace, an online hub for enterprises to find and purchase 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 distribution centres, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and transportation and logistics.

The site features solutions from Honeywell and third-party software vendors.

Examples of software currently available include asset tracking, point-of-sale software for retailers, push-to-talk communications, medical tracking for hospitals and password management for mobile devices.

“From searching to purchasing and deployment, IT managers can spend countless hours researching and evaluating specific enterprise software solutions,” says Honeywell A/NZ regional manager Claudio Bratovic.

“Today enterprises want the same easy-to-use shopping and downloading options to help solve their business challenges that they experience with consumer-focused mobile app stores.”

Users can search for software by industry, application vendor, operating system or other key attributes. They can download demos and browse screenshots of the available software.

“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,” says Bratovic.

“Honeywell Marketplace provides a single location, optimised for mobile devices, where businesses can find and purchase these solutions and more.”

Available apps include Honeywell’s Guided Work Solutions for voice-directed activities in distribution centres and the GoalPost labour 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.
