Golden Brand Award
Case Study Excellency Award
In awarding the Gold Medal in Automation Product Services, judges recognized Honeywell for its global service support centers that employ thousands of engineers and experts to deliver round-the-clock, localized customer service. The Excellence in Lifecycle Services Brands award also honored the company’s approach to helping manufacturers optimize performance and efficiency by being involved at every step, from a project’s preliminary discussion and system configuration, to comprehensive hardware and software upgrading, and on-site and remote expert assistance.
“Lifecycle services have become an increasingly critical part of our portfolio for the process industries due in part to today’s faster evolution of technology,” said Liang Qiquan, director of Honeywell Process Solutions’ services business in China. “Making it easier and more efficient for our customers to cost-effectively upgrade their technology at their own paces is critical to improving plant safety, reliability, efficiency and sustainability. These awards underscore how important lifecycle services have become for manufacturers.”
Additionally, the judges highlighted Honeywell’s work with Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Ltd. in the Excellence in Automation Services – Case Study category. Shanghai Petrochemical relies on Honeywell’s Lifecycle Management (LCM) technology for upgrading and to control overhead. By using the technology, Shanghai Petrochemical strengthened its plants’ operational safety, efficiency, stability and sustainability. The LCM technology also controlled predictable maintenance costs, and enhanced risk prevention and operational performance.
“Honeywell’s innovative service concept for lifecycle services gives users practical help and support, allowing them continue to be leaders in technology while controlling costs,” the judges said. “Honeywell sets itself apart from its competitors; its LCM solutions help users who are confronting major challenges, providing cost-effective solutions throughout the project’s entire lifespan, practically improving operational performance and profitability for users.”
