Never has this industry seen such rapid evolution in functionality and sustainability innovation. Just a couple of years ago, color-coded microfiber mops were the way of the future. New emerging technology seems to be released almost weekly, i.e., IoT devices to measure air quality, consumables, and occupancy sensors. How much of these technologies and practices are sustainable?
The cleaning industry is a competitive market; cleaning companies are left to weigh how much this technology is sustainable. Will it give them a competitive advantage to make such investments?
Over the past year, we have helped organizations build innovation portfolios aligning with their capacities and resources—organizations prompt innovation and high-tech processes. Still, few comprehend what it takes to successfully deploy and integrate such changes into their organization's ecosystem of processes, let alone have a dedicated team member knowledgeable in IoT and technology.
With over a decade in operations with facility management firms focusing on cleaning procedures and incorporating technology to be competitive in a low-margin environment. The next evolution in the cleaning industry has arrived. We see a dramatic shift from scheduled-based to demand-based cleaning using the power of data analytics. Remember when cleaners had to make tunnels and corridors to move around a property? Guests want to know, see, and feel comfortable that areas are being serviced regularly. Let us not hide the cleaning process; let us showcase it!
Analysts believe that the cleaning industry will continue to grow—and the demand for efficient, quality service will grow along with it.
Guest feedback has been a core component and data source feeding our TRAX SmartRestroom platform since the solution's genesis in 2017. Our clients consistently see the power that the data brings when correlated with restroom usage, custodian cleaning information, inventory data, work order management, and predictive analytics. Supported by an industry-leading feedback provider, we placed hundreds of feedback tablets at some of the world's busiest facilities and gathered millions of guest responses.Continue reading "TRAX Touchless Feedback" »
Stall lights and digital soap tracking could make the restrooms at DFW International Airport the best in the nation. DFW’S restrooms are one of 10 finalists for the nation’s best in a yearly competition sponsored by industrial supply company Cintas. The annual contest also includes zen-like abodes at Portland’s Japanese Garden and a swanky bathroom at a restaurant in Austin.
DFW Airport was tabbed after a year long effort to improve customer satisfaction with airport restrooms, including high-tech features to make them easier to use, well-stocked and available for passengers.
From The Wall Street Journal:
Meet the trendiest social media stars of the Big Apple: the bathrooms at a new concourse at LaGuardia Airport.
Gleaming, spacious and well-designed restrooms at the airport synonymous with grime, leaks and lines have travelers snapping sink selfies and tweeting delight instead of derision. After all, what’s more important at an airport than the bathrooms? “Looking good #LGA new terminal B…thrilled about the bathrooms with 20 stalls!!!” Mary Wolfe of Pittsburg, Kan., tweeted on her first trip through the new concourse, which opened Dec. 1.
Ms. Wolfe says she was shocked when she entered one of the new bathrooms in Concourse B. “It made a huge positive impression on me,” she says. That concourse houses flights for Southwest, Air Canada and American and will add United flights this summer. Fliers on other airlines will also benefit as more gates open.
