Solutions business of Honeywell [NYSE:HON] Automation and Control
Solutions and SAT Corporation, a leader in mobile computing technology for maintenance and operations work force management, have expanded their business relationship. Under the expanded alliance, SAT’s premiere mobile computing software, IntelaTracâ, will be embedded within Mobile PKS™, Honeywell’s new wireless human interface. The combined solution, IntelaTrac PKS, is an integral part of Experion PKS™, Honeywell’s Process Knowledge System™ that controls the entire scope of production to address the needs of operations, maintenance, engineering and business personnel. Delivering work process management software to hand-held computers via wireless communication, IntelaTrac PKS is used by industries that include oil and gas, refining, petrochemicals, pulp, paper and printing, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and power and energy.

Accurate field data is delivered faster, and to the right people across the enterprise for lower costs, better return on plant assets and improved profits.

Embedding IntelaTrac work force automation and productivity software with Mobile PKS creates the first truly unified, wireless process control, work process and asset management system.

“Honeywell’s business relationship with SAT has been very successful and we are pleased that they are a key technology provider for Mobile PKS,” said Jerry Walker, Vice President of Business Development for Honeywell Industry Solutions. “This solution offers new and exciting productivity opportunities between operations and maintenance, particularly in the areas of work flow collaboration and work process automation.”
