Movilizer is also one of the front runners in creating cloud platforms for field service applications.

Through Molivizer’s platform, customers can accumulate, analyze and transmit data generated by their workers on their existing IT systems, enabling them to harness the power of their workforce from anywhere. The cloud software enables the distributed workforce to create, deploy and manage workflow solutions.

This acquisition of Molivizer’s cloud software platform advances Honeywell’s capabilities and vision of the connected worker, driving growth, value through data, and new business models for their customers.

“Movilizer will drive greater productivity and flexibility for our customers and also helps us rapidly expand our software capabilities as a provider for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to enable greater safety, security and productivity for buildings, industrials and workers,” says Alex Ismail, President and CEO, Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions.

With solutions built and run on the Movilizer Cloud for Field Operations enterprises successfully adapt future-proof work models operating efficiently throughout their mission-critical processes in the areas of service and maintenance; slaes and distribution; and track and trace.

John Waldron, President, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions remarks,  “Movilizer’s Gartner-acclaimed, industry-leading cloud platform technology is the perfect complement to Honeywell’s Workflow Solutions portfolio of mobile productivity technology, including data collection, voice solutions, rugged mobile computers, bar code scanners and workflow printing solutions.”
