Honeywell rolls out new solutions across verticals
Hyderabad: Honeywell launched Impact by Honeywell, a brand that has been especially created to cater to the growing mid-segment in India. As part of the launch, the company introduced several products that have been locally developed to solve the challenges faced by mid-segment customers in terms of productivity, cost control, revenue leakage, quality, and compliance.
Dr Akshay Bellare, president, Honeywell India, said, "Impact by Honeywell brings the weight of Honeywell's technology capabilities to offer world-class, affordable, easy-to-install and easy-to-use products and digital solutions that are geared to solve the problems of mid-segment customers."
Middle-income households in India are set to almost double by 2030, offering small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with an opportunity to meet their burgeoning demands. According to him, Honeywell sees potential for adoption of automation, digitalisation, and smart products and solutions by SME or mid-segment customers. Impact by Honeywell's portfolio includes a range of affordable, simple and connected solutions that go into buildings and focus on energy management, fire safety, security and surveillance, and workforce management.
Speaking about one such product, the Universal AC Controller, Jasmeet Bhatia, who heads the buildings technologies line of business for Impact by Honeywell, said, "This simple yet powerful device saves up to 30 per cent of AC energy bills by reducing wastage and unwanted usage of air conditioners. This battery-operated device works with most AC models, old or new and is a must have product for commercial and residential buildings."
Impact by Honeywell also has products and solutions that cater to healthcare, e-commerce, and supply chain verticals. These include warehouse automation, digital safety and productivity solutions, and asset health monitoring - the last among these was developed in response to Covid-19, but has wider applications for the pharma industry. The BluTag 360 is a digital tracking and shipment condition monitoring solution for vaccines and drugs.
Chaitanya Paspuleti, who leads the safety and productivity solutions portfolio for Impact by Honeywell, said, "We recently introduced a warehouse management system for ecommerce businesses in India. With a setup time of less than five weeks, the Software as a Service solution enables e-commerce companies to increase product diversity, price products competitively, and manage fluctuating demand."
