HONEYWELL INTRODUCES NEW SCANPHONE FOR BUSINESSES LOOKING TO AUTOMATE WORKFLOWS, DATA COLLECTION
Dolphin™ 60s Scanphone Delivers Durability, Scanning Performance and Connectivity at Affordable Price
Fort Mill, S.C. – September 27, 2013 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced its newest scanphone, which blends the capabilities of a consumer smart phone, rugged mobile computer and bar code scanner in an affordable package. Built for workers on-the-go, the Dolphin 60s mobile device provides quick and reliable access to critical data through Honeywell’s proven technology. The device serves as a cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes across industries including retail, field service, and direct store delivery (DSD), where manual processes are becoming a competitive disadvantage.
The pocket-sized rugged enterprise device has been engineered to withstand 4-foot drops and more than 800 tumbles. To increase data collection efficiency and accuracy, the Dolphin 60s scanphone integrates 1D and 2D scanning technology with multiple data entry options, such as full QWERTY and numeric keypads. Additionally, the scanphone’s extended battery can last for a typical worker’s full shift.
The Dolphin 60s incorporates phone and data communication capabilities through Wi-Fi or 3G WWAN connectivity. Users can also deploy the Dolphin 60s’ Bluetooth® and GPS technologies.
“The Dolphin 60s provides a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to upgrade from the paper and clipboard by automating their inventory management and data collection. Honeywell designed this scanphone as an entry-level mobile solution to meet the needs of retail, field service, field sales and DSD operations of all sizes,” said Taylor Smith, director of product marketing, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.
In addition to its mobile and scanning functionalities, the Dolphin 60s scanphone has extended lifecycle support, offering reduced configuration and implementation costs and overall lower total cost of ownership – especially when compared to consumer-grade smart phones, which lack the enterprise scanning abilities, extended battery life and ability to withstand drops and tumbles. The Dolphin 60s also is compatible with Honeywell’s Remote Mastermind® 4.0, the automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) industry’s first integrated mobile and scanning device management solution.
The Dolphin 60s scanphone will begin shipping globally in September 2013 in both Wi-Fi and 3G WWAN versions. It joins the Dolphin 6000 mobile device in Honeywell’s current line of scanphones.
