Bunzl Canada's smart restroom system raises bar on hygiene compliance
Bunzl Canada has launched of two new system components to enhance the capabilities of its advanced, IoT-based restroom monitoring system, WandaNext.
The new components include a mobile application and IoT alert button to broaden the system's applicability to varied facility sizes and types. The WandaMobile application enables environmental cleaning teams to efficiently document cleaning activities from their mobile devices.
It provides facilities managers with data analytics to confirm activity types and frequency, analyze consumable usage and optimise resource deployment. The application can be used in conjunction with the newly introduced WandaQuicktouch IoT button to alert cleaning teams to issues that require immediate attention.
"More than ever, the focus will be on ensuring that the correct cleaning protocols for specific facility types have been established, and are being followed," says Bunzl Canada president, John Howlett. "We continue to work with Visionstate IoT to enhance this important technology so we can proactively address the new challenges our customers face in maintaining healthy, safe and productive environments."
The WandaNext system is comprised of robust analytics software and data collection components that include touchscreen tablets, infrared traffic counting units, the new mobile application and IoT alert Bunzl Cbuttons. Its configuration can be customised to meet specific FM needs. The system's growing installation base includes healthcare, retail, commercial office, conference, airport and distribution facilities across Canada and the United States. It was also recently launched in the UK and Australia.
John Putters, CEO of Visionstate IoT, says of the technology: "WandaNext is a powerful compliance management tool that will help to raise the standard of cleaning and hygiene in public spaces.
"Organisations that implement this advanced technology will be seen as industry leaders and best practice examples of state of the art environmental management."
