Optidev Closes Deal With One of Denmark’s Largest Carriers
“We showed up at the right time with the right product at the right price. In addition, Danske Fragtmænd A/S liked Optidev’s offering and our way of working,” says Kristian Smedegaard, Opitev’s country manager in Denmark. Kristian joined Optidev after the office in Denmark was opened last year.
The deal with Danske Fragtmænd, one of Denmark’s largest national carriers, includes a five years rental and service agreement with more than 1,800 handheld computers that will be used by the company’s drivers. The new Honeywell Dolphin CT60 handheld computers replace the IKON terminals from Psion that the company currently uses.
“Honeywell’s new Dolphin CT60 enabled Optidev to offer a solution at the right price and with better features such as support for four generations Android,” continues Smedegaard.
Danske Fragtmænd allowed a few selected drivers to test the new Dolphin handheld computer for a few weeks. The test results were positive and the delivery of a new system was urgent.
“It was important for Danske Fragtmænd that we could deliver a large number of devices already in the first quarter,” says Smedegaard. “Our good relationship with Honeywell enabled us meet their expectations.”
Optidev is very confident about market development in the Nordic region. The need for rugged mobile solutions to capture business critical information is growing in many industries. Optidev is one of few companies to offer a turnkey solution with hardware and software paired with service and support.
“We are growing in all our markets. In addition to the growth in the transport and logistics industry, we are seeing a large potential in the EMS and public safety sector in Denmark,” concludes Optidev’s CEO Fredrik Logenius.
