OpenRoad and Honeywell Named as Finalist for SIIA CODie Awards
Honeywell Smartline is up for another technology award.
We’re proud to be finalists in the 2018 CODie Awards; “the only peer-recognized program in the business and education technology industries.” With our client Honeywell, OpenRoad has been named a finalist in the Best Manufacturing Solution category, for Honeywell’s SmartLine Application Validation Tool. This category recognizes the best solution for managing the manufacturing supply chain, including everything from from planning and scheduling, to monitoring, managing, reporting, analyzing, and more. Innovation, vision and overall impact in an industry are among the assessment criteria.
A winning formula: putting the customer first
Honeywell’s SmartLine Application Validation Tool was a challenging project aimed at offering a best-in-class user experience for their customer. Our goal was to simplify and improve upon a previously complex, error-prone, and confusing purchase process. To better understand the problem, we conducted comparative and competitive research, prototyping, and interviews; all of which proved essential to informing the design and development work.
The outcome was an ordering tool that was easier to use and thus 3.6 times faster, with fewer errors. The SmartLine Application Validation Tool is one that helps Honeywell standout in an industry crowded with similar product offerings, thanks to a tool that makes the complex understandable.
We’re thrilled to with companies like Honeywell, who value innovation and emphasize their customer’s experience. Winners of the 2018 CODie Awards will be announced mid-June at the SIIA conference in San Francisco.
