DUNEDIN, FLA.—For the second consecutive year, Mintek Mobile Data Solutions, a leading provider of turn-key, mobile data solutions, ranks among the top 500 global software and services providers—based on 2005 revenues—according to the October issue of Software Magazine.
“We are excited to be included again on this prestigious list,” says Lind Hutton, executive vice president and C.O.O. of Dunedin, Fla.-based Mintek. “We have experienced tremendous growth since launching our business in 1987. That growth has been driven by our focus on understanding the business challenges of our customers and developing unique solutions that meet their needs.”
The Software 500 is a ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing. The list includes both public and private companies. Revenue totals include software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services, and consulting.
Since publication of last year’s list, Mintek has added important new customers in the lodging and cable industries, and also has entered a new vertical with the introduction of its WinTrack PM for City Utilities.
Loews Deal Highlights Lodging Growth
In lodging, Mintek continues to build on the success of its dynamic Lodging Asset Management Suite, a set of planning tools that provide for management oversight and notification. The Suite includes WinTrack PM, Asset Director, Maintenance Portal, Work Order Kiosk and Alerts. Mintek’s lodging solutions have been implemented in almost 300 hotels.
“Tracking, maintaining and managing any lodging asset is easily done through a powerful solution that combines handheld devices, bar coding and Internet capability,” Hutton says. “The result is lower equipment and labor costs, improved asset capital planning and an enhanced guest experience.”
Earlier this year, Mintek finalized an agreement with Loews Hotels that resulted in its WinTrack PM system being implemented in the New York-based company’s 17 hotels.
“Loew Hotels already is benefiting from WinTrack PM,” Hutton says. “It has enabled their engineers to more efficiently schedule, monitor and analyze preventive maintenance, perform rounds and capture readings.”
Company to Continue Research
Hutton says Mintek will continue to invest research dollars in pursuit of advanced, automated solutions for its lodging, cable and utilities customers.
“Our plan is to continue to grow in the industries in which we have a strong presence, and continue to offer our customers cutting edge technology and products,” he says. “We will continue to pursue our vision of providing ‘access to information from anywhere’ by using Internet, wireless, GPS, RFID and other technologies. With the continued support of our customers and hard-working employees, we expect to continue to be leaders in the cable, lodging and utilities sectors while at the same time exploring opportunities in other industries.”
