This simple program will provide customers that purchase 9900 units with a cash incentive for each working 9500 unit that is traded-in.
Designed to provide customers with the benefits of complete lifecycle management, the upgrade program helps customers maintain their current investments in software, training and infrastructure, such as accessories, cables and peripherals, while also supporting a path for future expansion. In addition, the 9900's form factor and usability is nearly identical to that of its predecessor, ensuring familiarity and ease-of-use.
"This program is an example of Honeywell's commitment to lifecycle management, supporting our customers as they migrate forward from one generation of Honeywell technology to the next," said Garrison Gomez, Manager of Mobility Marketing, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. "With the trade-in incentive, as well as the backward compatibility of nearly the entire peripheral set, 9500 customers can enjoy rapid payback on their investment as they migrate to the 9900."
The ergonomic and extremely durable Dolphin 9900 is purpose-built for applications in harsh environments that require reliable bar code scanning and keypad data entry. Designed with durability in mind, the Dolphin 9900 is IP64 rated and can withstand multiple 5-foot drops to concrete and more than 2,000 3-foot tumbles. This next-generation device provides current Dolphin 9500 users with important upgrades, including built-in GPS technology and Microsoft's latest operating system -- Windows Mobile 6.1. The Dolphin 9900 also incorporates Honeywell's proprietary Shift-PLUS power management technology which provides 10+ hours of battery life, eliminating the need to replace batteries during most work shifts.
In accordance with the company's focus on environmental stewardship, Honeywell will recycle all traded-in units.
The Dolphin 9500 Trade-in Program is effective immediately.
