Intermec, Inc., announced that it has been recognized for its innovation in the AIDC industry with a 2011 Tech Innovator award from CRN in the handhelds category for its ultra-rugged mobile computer, the CK71. CRN's 9th annual Tech Innovator listing celebrates vendors that have introduced new products or solutions to drive advances in the technology channel. Companies on this exclusive list recently implemented innovative methods to bridge the gap between current problems and solutions facing channel executives today.
Intermec, a leading provider of rugged mobile business solutions, provides channel partners and their customers with innovative solutions that are easy to use, deploy and support. Designed for the warehouse-distribution and manufacturing environments, the Intermec CK71 is the smallest and lightest form-factor in its ultra-rugged class and provides enterprise organizations with next-generation features to transform business operations. The Intermec CK71 is built with premium, industrial-grade materials for the perfect balance of ruggedness, duty cycle and ergonomics that focus on enabling flexibility and agility, even in the most extreme conditions. The CK71 is part of four handheld devices built on a single platform available in the 70 Series family.
"We're thrilled to be named a winner in the handheld category by Everything Channel's CRN, the leading channel publication, as it reflects our continued commitment to delivering rugged and reliable devices to our channel partners and their customers," said Scott Anderson, Vice President of Global Channels at Intermec. "This recognition is a testament to our global channel program and ability to deliver value to our customers with a mobile computer that addresses the demanding concerns of the warehouse and manufacturing environments."
"In today's challenging business environment, it's more important than ever to discover, nurture and reward new ideas," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for UBM Channel. "This year's Tech Innovator Awards recognizes technology companies that have used original methods or technologies to deliver cutting-edge products and partner support. We congratulate this year's winners on their success, and applaud them for breaking away from traditional thinking to create completely new and unique channel opportunities."
