FORT MILL, S.C., August 19, 2019 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced two new resellers to help bring its Guided Work Solutions software offering to small- and medium-sized distribution centers globally.
The company recently partnered with Consultare America LLC and Silver Touch Technologies to offer the fully-integrated voice-directed productivity solution to its customer base throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe and India.
Based on Honeywell’s industry-leading Vocollect voice technology, Guided Work Solutions brings the beneﬁts of voice-guided workﬂows to smaller DC operations. The solution integrates with leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) software — such as SAP Business One and Microsoft Dynamics 365 — and leverages existing warehouse technology investments.
“Our new partnerships with Consultare and Silver Touch Technologies allows us to expand the reach of Guided Work Solutions to an ever-growing base of businesses around the world to help improve their day-to-day operations,” said Bill Birnie, general manager of voice solutions for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. “Our bundled, turnkey voice solution can allow distribution operations become more efficient by adding a voice component to their existing warehouse management system.”
Both resellers are proficient and have extensive knowledge of business processes and systems, having consulted with and installed ERP software in hundreds of companies across the world.
Consultare specializes in SAP Business One and is focused on implementing solutions for professional services, retail and wholesale distribution in the United States and Latin America. The company helps customers to manage their companies more efficiently, utilize their resources better and obtain better and faster information out of their systems.
“Consultare is honored to be part of the Honeywell reseller family,” said Gustavo Zientek, CEO of Consultare America LLC. “Honeywell’s Guided Work Solutions will enable us to provide our customers with the newest and best technology available to run their warehouses efficiently.”
