Motorola Honors North American and Latin American Channel Partners with Enterprise Mobility Solutions Awards


HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the winners of its annual Enterprise Mobility Solutions Awards, presented at the Company’s North American and Latin American (NALA) Enterprise Mobility Partner Conference. North American and Latin American channel partners received the awards for the most innovative enterprise mobility solutions that help customers accelerate growth, productivity and operational efficiencies.

“Motorola and its partners share a common goal of empowering the individual and transforming the enterprise,” said Janet Schijns, vice president of Global Channels, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions. “The Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions Awards recognize the channel partners that have developed the most successful, forward-thinking mobile and wireless solutions that help customers increase productivity, streamline business operations, and provide a competitive advantage. This year’s competition offered an extremely strong pool of innovative solutions from our partners across the region and we appreciate the commitment and support of all of our partners in advancing the next wave of enterprise mobility.”

Lowry Computer Products was awarded the 2008 NALA Enterprise Mobility Solutions Award for the implementation of the first state-level food traceability system in the United States with the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture and the Hawaii Farm Bureau. In recent years, consumer safety and confidence have been shaken by pathogen-based outbreaks within the food chain that have led to recalls, illnesses and in some cases, deaths. The State of Hawaii initiated an RFID-based track-and-trace program that will display real-time produce movement and enable growers to monitor the complete harvest to market process. Lowry Computer Products devised and deployed a fail-safe system that utilized Motorola MC9090-G RFID handheld mobile computers and XR440 fixed RFID readers to identify and pull contaminated products before reaching the consumer. The program is expected to increase food safety response and mitigate losses associated with crop disease, food recalls and other food safety issues.

Spring Wireless and Deloitte were named recipients of the NALA Partner Ecosystem Award for the most innovative enterprise mobility solution developed collaboratively by two or more partners. Spring Wireless and Deloitte were honored for their implementation of a mobile field sales, field services and distribution solution utilizing Motorola MC70 mobile computers at Anheuser-Busch InBev in Brazil and Belgium. The Spring Wireless-Deloitte enterprise mobility solution has helped improve cash flow, increase direct store delivery (DSD) productivity, and reduce data entry errors and administrative paperwork. The real-time automated data capture functionality dramatically increased the productivity of Anheuser-Busch InBev’s DSD function and provided a return on their investment in only six months. By eliminating manual paperwork processes, driver productivity increased 10 percent enabling each driver to make a minimum of one additional stop per day. Since drivers frequently sell additional products beyond the order at delivery time, the additional stop provided a nine percent increase in actual sales. In addition, now that the bar codes of delivered product are scanned and the lot numbers are captured, Anheuser-Busch Inbev is prepared for quick and easy traceability of the product right to the customer in the event of a recall.
