Honeywell is rolling out several new software solutions designed to help companies enforce COVID-19 health and safety procedures, specifically for highly mobile workers in fields including warehousing and retail. The features are being offered through the Honeywell Operational Intelligence asset management platform.
The new solutions can help retailers monitor on-site social distancing compliance, enforce customizable device cleaning procedures and deploy software to digitally trace who has handled each device. These functionalities can provide employees and managers with real-time data so that they can better manage the re-opening process.
Specific features include:
- Social Distancing Proximity Detection: Helps organizations prioritize and monitor social distancing practices by monitoring the proximity between Honeywell devices;
- Check Out/In and Device Cleaning Management: Helps establish processes to check devices out and in during a worker’s shift, giving employers device tracing data and alerting workers when they need to be cleaned;
- Remote Control and Remote Wipe: IT administrators can monitor availability in order to quickly take control of a device in any location so they can investigate and fix issues remotely;
- Customer Counter: Offers device users shared, real-time data for employees at multiple entrances of a store, helping them remain in-sync as they count customers entering and exiting.
Honeywell is also is expanding its portfolio of mobility, scan and print offerings featuring disinfectant-ready housings. The devices can be used in the same areas as standard Honeywell products but help promote a healthier work environment.
