Charlotte, North Carolina-based technology and manufacturing giant Honeywell has signed on software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup FarEye to drive efficiencies for supply chain workers in the retail, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and transportation and logistics industries.
The Delhi and Chicago, Illinois based firm is expected to take its low-code intelligent delivery management platform to Honeywell mobile computer users, a statement said. This would enable workers using these devices to manage, visually track and monitor their delivery logistics operations and provide superior outcomes to their end customers.
“Mobile workers are being tasked to work smarter and faster, and we’re partnering with innovative solution providers like FarEye and transforming our productivity software to a connected suite to help enterprises achieve their goals,” Kevin Dehoff, president of Honeywell’s productivity solutions and services business, said in the statement.
As part of this improved supply chain software suite, Honeywell said, the company will also provide mobile workers with Honeywell Operational Intelligence software platform and the Honeywell Smart Talk unified workforce communications application.
These tools together will provide greater visibility of logistics operations with centralised data that is usually scattered throughout the organisation, helping workers make actionable decisions and become more productive.
Commenting on the collaboration, Kushal Nahata, CEO and co-founder at FarEye, said, “Indeed a milestone for both the teams who are on a journey to empower shippers and carriers to deliver better.”
“Together we have been able to make a positive impact on businesses with the disruptive power of Honeywell technologies and FarEye's intelligent delivery management platform, which is built to solve the complex challenges that cost the supply chain and logistics industry trillions of dollars,” he said.
FarEye’s intelligent platform is used by over 150 retailers, manufacturers, and logistics and transportation organisations, including DHL, Walmart, Amway, Domino’s, and Hilti, across 30 countries.
