GP PRO and Butlr Technologies Partner to Improve Labor Efficiency

Butlr Technologies has built a people-sensing platform using thermal, wireless sensors and artificial intelligence to passively and anonymously detect human presence indoors

GP PRO and Butlr Technologies have announced a new marketing partnership designed to help create a safer return to office experience for employees and a comprehensive and differentiated restroom maintenance solution for facilities.

Butlr Technologies, a spin-out of the MIT Media Lab, has built a breakthrough people-sensing platform using thermal, wireless sensors and artificial intelligence to passively and anonymously detect human presence indoors. Specifically, the platform uses body heat to infer occupancy, headcount and activity to generate accurate, real-time and historic spatial insights. In combination with GP PRO’s KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System, Butlr and GP PRO will enable traffic-based cleaning as a means to increase hygiene while enabling labor savings.

“Butlr is proud to cooperate with GP PRO and its innovative KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System. Gone should be the days of schedule-based cleaning. Butlr’s real-time traffic insights will allow users of GP PRO’s KOLO system to achieve a better customer experience while realizing labor and environmental impact savings,” said Honghao Deng, founder and CEO of Butlr.

“Butlr demonstrated a great deal of insight in developing its Heatic platform as a way for facility managers to address several critical implications from COVID-19,” said John Strom, vice president and general manager of connected solutions with GP PRO. “When deployed in combination with our KOLO system, there’s no doubt in my mind that customers will achieve a new level of operational efficiency and hygiene. In tandem, these two technologies have the potential to dramatically and positively impact facility management.”

The marketing partnership between Butlr and GP PRO will help drive market awareness of each brand’s sensing and monitoring capabilities and promote the benefits to be gained by deploying both.
