As you saw (click here for the pictures), the Wavelink AsiaPac team attended and sponsored the Honeywell AsiaPac and China shows on Feb 28-29, and Mar 1-2 respectively in Hangzhou China near Shanghai.
The conferences were to bring together Honeywell’s reseller and partners to learn Honeywell’s plans for 2012 and beyond. Products, strategies, and guidance on how to maximize your opportunities were provided in the areas of mobile computers and scanners. Participants were rotated through sessions specializing on field mobility, retail, and warehousing with each touching on how Honeywell specializes in each area, and how participants can again optimize their participation in these market segments.
We’re on the road again this week in Chicago attending ProMat 2011. During show hours on Monday, the folks from Warehouse IQ stopped by and filmed our very own Greg Berger demonstrating Speakeasy. We’ve posted it below as well as a few pictures from the show. If you’re at the show, stop by and see it for yourself!
This article from InformationWeek should make all of our device manufacturer friends out there happy. David Krebs, one of the most respected voices in the industry, with VDC Research is projecting solid growth in ruggedized handheld computers across the globe, and especially in Europe.
One of the items in the piece of particular interest is the expected increase in “beyond the fence” devices. As Mr. Krebs points out, “The real growth driver for rugged handheld devices continues to be with the ‘beyond the fence’ field mobile workers, which is the least-penetrated market segment and is only now beginning to see the benefits of making certain processes mobile.”
I know our readers cover a broad base of industries, so what do you think about Mr. Krebs thoughts on “beyond the fence” mobility?
