SmartSystems™ Foundation is an easy-to-use software platform that provides IT Administrators and Integrators a single, integrated portal for hands-free provisioning, deployment and management of Intermec devices minimising the effort spent on software upgrades, equipment monitoring, maintenance and trouble-shooting.
Foundation provides a consistent way to manage Intermec devices including mobile computers, RFID readers, printers and bar code scanners, located on-site or remote, to make the most of limited IT resources, and lower the total cost of ownership for Intermec data collection equipment.
Intermec devices are packed with powerful features such as wireless communications, the latest Windows Mobile operating system, 802.1x security, Bluetooth® and extensive data collection support, all available when you take a device out of the box. Foundation provides easy access from one convenient location to the wide range of features integrated into Intermec equipment allowing customers to configure all of the settings for quick deployment.
An intuitive administrator’s console provides centralised access to remote devices. Administrators can change device settings, configure OS upgrades, update software applications, and execute other changes directly from the console to save time and significantly cut costs. Through One-Step Provisioning, these updates can be provisioned to multiple devices in a single-step via software bundles.
SmartSystems-enabled devices appear on the console, providing real-time visibility to device status and information. In addition, the built-in license manager enables easy license activation and management of Intermec software licenses.
SmartSystems Foundation slashes time and expenses by making it easy to customise, upgrade and optimise your system. System administrators can adjust settings at their desktop and push them to devices in the field without ever handling the equipment. They can also create and save a “golden” configuration image, then use the image to restore device settings and solve field issues, or quickly load, configure and deploy a replacement device.
SmartSystems simplifies connecting a device to the network and associating it to a specific folder within the SmartSystems administrator console through a simple procedure called Scan-to-Connect. IT Administrators scan a customised set of barcodes to enable single step connection of supported devices to the network and into the SmartSystems folder. From there, a provisioning bundle associated with the folder is deployed to the device without administrative interaction, saving time and effort.
Many SmartSystems-enabled devices feature the Intermec Ready-to-Work Indicator, a blue LED that gives users visual confirmation that the device is on the network and functioning properly.
SmartSystems Foundation complements and integrates with industry leading device management solutions including Wavelink Avalanche™ and SOTI MobiControl, adding the ability to manage the unique Intermec device features and settings from within a single enterprise device management system.
