Savortex responds to Covid-19 with launch of revolutionary new 'smart' hand sanitiser
Savortex has announced the launch of its 'Smart' Hand Sanitiser, a cleverly-designed hygiene product that will help restart the office economy in a post-Covid environment.
The innovative product uses smart technology to deliver the exact amount of sanitiser required without touching the device, and to ensure maximum use, providing companies with peace of mind as workplaces reopen.
Savortex has pioneered the use of Internet of Things technologies to revolutionise the washroom hygiene industry, leveraging technology for significant energy, operational and cost savings. The award-winning British tech company has created a smart machine that encourages the highest level of hygiene while delivering real time anonymised data to reveal cleaning patterns and inform the building management of accurate hygiene protection levels.
The global Covid-19 outbreak has caused the demand for hand hygiene products to exceed supply channels worldwide in a short time span. In a post-Covid environment, technology will be critical to addressing the hygiene concerns of building owners and organisations.
By introducing IoT technologies to the washroom, the 'Smart' Hand Sanitiser provides a realistic solution to driving optimum hygiene within an organisation's buildings. The devices are cellularly connected and operate at the highest efficiency, providing real time data to reduce hygiene risks, support building management and minimise energy usage. The technology, developed with Arm Pelion Connectivity Management, is at the forefront of best hygiene practices to ensure workplaces are as safe as possible.
With the hygiene industry growing at an incredible rate, Savortex will be continuing to scale out its deployments worldwide with the help of Arm Pelion Connectivity Management. Already utilised by companies such as GSK, Shell and Gatwick Airport, Savortex continues to expand globally, pursuing new opportunities with partnerships in Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and Dubai, among many others. Savortex has also developed strong links to the US, Europe and Africa.
"Hand sanitisers have been around for decades, but now, due to Covid-19, they are in the frontline in the fight against this terrible disease," says Syed Ahmed, founder and CEO of Savortex. "Our 'Smart' Hand Sanitiser provides a safe, 'no touch' solution that monitors usage and provides building owners with peace of mind that vital hygiene protocols are being followed."
Wes Paul, chairman of the Gemin-i Group and former global head of investments at JP Morgan, says: "We rank the health and wellness of our customers as a key priority. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our world, and personal hygiene will need to change as a consequence of new and persistent viral contagion risks.
"To improve the biosecurity of our clients, Gemin-i has collaborated with Savortex. The British technology manufacturer has developed a technologically advanced smart sanitiser system that will encourage better hygiene behaviour within the workplace."
Vincent Korstanje, VP and GM, Connectivity, Arm, says: "Health & safety is paramount with the ongoing global pandemic, so Arm partnering with Savortex has been a great opportunity to transform the hygiene industry. Quick deployment is key to addressing the industry needs during this important time. Arm Pelion Connectivity Management enables Savortex to streamline their deployment process and scale out worldwide, wherever hand sanitisers are needed."
