What Appirio gave us is a totally new way to think about the problem, a different way to address our challenge and come up with a solution that’s equally creative and satisfies a customer need.
At their annual user conference, Honeywell made a promise to customers to create a mobile, social app to access building and campus operations. Honeywell needed to think differently about how they were going to work on this mobile project and future projects. The creativity and speed delivered through Topcoder helped Honeywell execute faster.
In early 2014, HBS used Topcoder and within eight days, Honeywell was delivered mobile design concepts based on a real customer use case. Eight weeks later, Honeywell was clicking on their beautiful working prototype that was ultimately unveiled as the Attune Mobile App to 700 customers at the Honeywell User Group Conference later that year.
Honeywell Building Solutions or HBS, addresses facility management needs specifically within the commercial building environment – think large facilities like hospital, universities, and airports. HBS’s focus is installing, integrating and maintaining the systems that keep these facilities safe, secure, comfortable, productive and energy efficient.
