Honeywell also launched an array of new products at the event, which are going to be offered to its partners in the coming year. The company is positioning itself to become the supplier of hardware and software products that will support the growth of technology in the East African region.
John Odindo, the Regional Leader for Eastern Africa at Honeywell, recognized the important role their partners play in getting to the needs of the final consumer. As Honeywell positions itself to contribute to the growth of technology and digital transformation in the region, it’s important that they satisfy the needs of the local consumer.
“Digital transformation has been growing in the region over the past two years after the pandemic and technology is growing steadily in the region. The final consumer is looking for the convenience that technology can bring to them and together with our partners we can achieve that,” he said at the event.
“We may not fully understand the need of a specific hospital, the solutions they need to better serve their patients, but you the partner who interacts with the clients frequently will know which hospital needs what solution,” he further stated addressing the partners in attendance.
Honeywell has been around for a long time and is mainly known as an aeronautical tech company. Over the recent past, the company has been steadily growing in East Africa and has taken upon its stride to recognize and award its key partners. The firm also awarded its partners in 2021.
