Request Information

Honeywell recently introduced Remote MasterMind (ReM)™, a remote scanner management package that provides IT administrators with a convenient system to manage all scanners within their network, from any single remote location. ReM is a browser-based stand alone solution that can be incorporated into any enterprise. Compatible with more than 20 Honeywell Scanning & Mobility products, this UPOS-compliant tool also integrates seamlessly with IBM's Remote Management Agent and can be administered via IBM Director.

ReM reduces maintenance costs and makes managing all scanners within a network seamless and easy. Paired with IBM's remote management software, ReM can provide intuitive information on system efficiency and other monitored metrics.

Remote MasterMind delivers the five value drivers of remote scanner management; each can be instantly performed from any single remote location without disrupting the performance of the scanner.

  • Asset Tracking – Retrieve serial numbers and firmware versions;
  • Firmware Upgrades – Upgrade scanner firmware with the click of a button;
  • Configuration Updates – Update the configuration of one or thousands of scanners;
  • Scanner Diagnostics – Monitor scanner health such as hardware status and communication errors;
  • Performance Metrics – Review scanner performance and retrieve metrics such as scan counts.

"Scanner management technology reaches new heights with the introduction of Honeywell's Remote MasterMind," said Darius Adamczyk, President of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. "This new offering enables significant labor savings and increased ROI for customers seeking more efficient operations."

Remote MasterMind will be on display in booth #2231 at the 98th Annual NRF Conference & EXPO. NRF will take place from January 11–14, 2009 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, New York.
