Bunzl Canada partners with IoT developer Visionstate on latest technology product
Bunzl Canada has this week announced its exclusive agreement with Visionstate to distribute its Internet of Things-based washroom monitoring system, WandaNext. This is the second next-generation technology partnership announcement in recent months by Bunzl, following on from its introduction of an exclusive electrostatic disinfecting technology.
"First-to-market innovations are one of the many reasons our customers choose Bunzl to support their business success," says Bunzl Canada president, John Howlett. "This latest technology partnership with Visionstate will help our customers maximise their operational efficiencies and deliver improved restroom facility management."
Visionstate specialises in analytics, interactive customer service and IoT applications designed to streamline operations. The company recently acquired Montreal-based Chatbot Incubator, which specialises in applications for artificial intelligence.
Visionstate CEO, John Putters, says: "Visionstate is extremely pleased to be working with a partner like Bunzl. This relationship leverages the strengths of both companies, maximising our collective capacity to bring this innovative technology to market on a global scale."
More information will be made available about WandaNext in the coming weeks. The product has been proven successful in a wide range of commercial, retail and healthcare applications throughout North America, including the Edmonton International Airport.
Bunzl Canada provides the cleaning and hygiene products and equipment, food and retail packaging and safety and industrial supplies that keep over 45,000 Canadian businesses running optimally, every day. The company brings its customers the advantage of global sourcing, product innovation and national scale combined with responsive local service and deep category expertise.
