Honeywell International Inc. has launched an enterprise app store where enterprises can find and purchase business-critical software for distribution centers, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and transportation and logistics, the industrial supplier said yesterday.

Known as Honeywell Marketplace, the online hub will give customers direct access to discovering and purchasing both Honeywell and third-party enterprise mobile apps, the Morris Plains, N.J.-based company said.At the same time, the portal will enable software vendors to directly engage customers and to collaborate with other developers on producing solutions, technologies, and services.

With products from dozens of third-party software vendors, the site currently includes products such as asset tracking, point-of-sale software for retailers, push-to-talk communications, medical tracking for hospitals, and password management for mobile devices, Honeywell said. Other apps on the site are Honeywell's own Guided Work Solutions for voice-directed activities in distribution centers and its GoalPost labor management system, which offers detailed analytics on worker performance.

Users can search for software by industry, application vendor, operating system or other key attributes, then download demos and browse screenshots of the available software. "A retailer, for example, may need different solutions for enabling customer checkout, tracking mobile devices, managing inventory, routing returned merchandise and communicating with store associates," Peter Howes, president of Honeywell's Productivity Products business, said in a release. "We're providing a single source, optimized for mobile devices, to find and purchase these solutions and more."
