It is estimated that around 98% of people tend to avoid places with dirty restrooms, you included. It is, therefore, safe to say that restroom maintenance says a lot about your company, so why not do it right—call BRAVO! Professionals to get started.
With the world moving from the manual processes of doing things, technology is an important factor to consider in bathroom maintenance. From web-enabled sensors in bath-tissue, soap dispensers and in hand towels wirelessly transmitting refill needs before they even arise, to toilet stalls with advanced people counters technology is aimed at helping you work efficiently and create a cleaner environment.
So why should you integrate technology into your restroom maintenance?
Better Staff Management
Data from smart dispensers can help managers in their staffing decisions. For example, the cleaning schedule can be moved to a need-based cleaning schedule since the systems will alert if there was a cleaning need.
Sorting Issues Before They Arise
Smart restroom systems alerts managers before issues arise. Soap dispensers linked to the cloud, for example, will give a notification when the supply is almost depleted. Some cleaning equipment too records the service hours and notifies when they need servicing to prevent damage.
Efficient Supply Ordering
Real-time data from the restrooms help predict the usage patterns and in turn helps the manager to order for supplies before they run out. This helps to prevent a shortage of the cleaning and restroom products needed.
Identifying Traffic Patterns
Things like smart restroom stalls can help keep track of the number of people visiting a specific restroom and can help identify the restrooms with the most traffic. By comparing this information to events and break times the manager can estimate which restroom has the most traffic and when. This enables the manager to identify which restrooms need more attention during work events.
