Fort Mill, S.C., March 1, 2016 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has completed its acquisition of
privately held Movilizer, which created one of the world's first cloud platforms for field service
applications. Movilizer is used by remote workers performing service or maintenance, sales and
distribution, and warehousing activities away from the office. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Movilizer's cloud software enables a distributed workforce to create, deploy and manage
workflow solutions – whether at the point of sale, in the field, in a warehouse or distribution center.
Customers can seamlessly collect, transmit and analyze data generated by their workers on their
existing information technology (IT) systems, enabling them to harness the power of their
workforce from anywhere to best serve the needs of their end customers.
"Acquiring Movilizer's cloud software platform advances our vision of the connected worker,
driving growth, value through data, and new business models for our customers," said Alex Ismail,
president and CEO, Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. "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."
"Businesses that operate with a distributed workforce want software solutions that can be
rapidly developed, are massively scalable and that make their mobile teams more connected and
more valuable to the enterprise," said John Waldron, president, Honeywell Sensing and
Productivity Solutions. "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."
Movilizer's multi-tenant, cloud and mobile applications are currently used by more than 200
multi-national companies in 30 countries, executing more than 1.5 million mobile business
application transactions daily in the utility, manufacturing and engineering, transportation and
logistics, and consumer packaged goods industries. The platform allows customers running SAP
for example, to more quickly build native mobile applications from scratch inside SAP or to rapidly
deploy out-of-the-box mobile applications for service, maintenance, sales, distribution, warehouse
or track-and-trace environments in just days.
Movilizer was named a 2015 "Cool Vendor in Mobile App Development" by Gartner, a
leading information technology research and advisory company. In addition to Movilizer's solutions
for track and trace, direct store delivery and field maintenance environments, its platform has
enabled more than 100 partners and customers to create more than 1,000 unique applications for
fleet management, field service, direct store delivery, asset rental management, mobile order entry,
time and attendance reporting, among others.
Movilizer is headquartered in Mannheim, Germany, and has a team of more than 100
people. Movilizer is now part of Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions, based in Fort Mill,
South Carolina, a business unit within Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions.
