Ivanti today announced that the latest version of Ivanti Velocity, powered by Wavelink (version 2.0.1), now includes support for mobile data capture solutions manufactured by Cognex, the leader in machine vision and industrial barcode reading. Together, Ivanti® Velocity and Cognex provide a plug-and-play solution that is designed to improve supply chain operations for organisations leveraging Samsung mobile devices.
“Our new relationship with Cognex is a big win for our partners as it creates opportunities for them to now sell and support Samsung’s consumer-grade mobility solutions, alongside their existing portfolio of rugged mobile computers,” said Steve Bemis, Global Vice President of Sales, Supply Chain Business Unit, Ivanti. “For our customers, this means more choice as they now gain access to a lower-cost hardware solution, with powerful data capture technology that they have been accustomed to receiving from their industrial-grade devices.”
The combination of Ivanti Velocity and Cognex mobile solutions helps to speed supply chain migration to the Android user experience. Windows Mobile and Windows CE are nearing end of support, which is driving supply chain and retail organisations to fast track their adoption of the Android OS. “Customers can now migrate existing warehouse management software and enterprise resource planning applications on their Samsung devices to the Android platform, just as they would on a traditional rugged mobile computing platform,” added Bemis.
“We are pleased to be teaming with Ivanti to bring to market innovative mobile solutions for the supply chain,” said Bryan Boatner, Director of Sales and Product Marketing, at Cognex. “Together, we are uniquely positioned to help supply chain and retail organisations leverage advanced data capture and mobile interfaces to help increase productivity and reduce costs.”
The Ivanti Velocity framework includes rapid migration tools that get organisations onto Android devices fast, with the ability to easily modernise their apps to a touch navigation user interface when they’re ready. Other new features and enhancements now available with Ivanti Velocity version 2.0.1 include:
- Bluetooth printing support
- Client-side security updates
- Expanded toolset for administrators
- Ivanti Speakeasy voice support for x86-compatible Android devices
