Kimberly-Clark Professional Demonstrates Why Smart Restrooms Matter

The company will partner with GOJO Industries to exhibit Onvation smart restroom technology at the Realcomm 2022 expo

Kimberly-Clark Professional announced that it will partner with GOJO Industries to exhibit Onvation smart restroom technology at the Realcomm 2022 expo, debuting its solutions to help facilities in North America meet the diverse challenges of numerous workplaces as they embrace employees returning to the office.

Onvation, a connected software solution, proactively controls and optimizes restroom servicing, provides the intelligence and flexibility needed to deliver world-class facility management and improve operational efficiencies, and helps organizations meet their sustainability goals. This is increasingly important as offices and employers face labor shortages, unpredictable building occupancy rates and increased hygiene expectations.

Realcomm trade show attendees will have the opportunity to interact with Onvation’s state-of-the-art technology through in-booth demonstrations on how this smart restroom solution provides a series of benefits to both building users and building management.

“Realcomm is the perfect venue to demonstrate the capabilities of Onvation in helping the commercial real estate industry adopt innovative solutions, such as Onvation, that will help to bring employees back to offices and adapt to working outside of their homes again,” said Juliet Hollyhurst, Onvation’s Business Operations Leader. “Onvation notifications and data insights can help to alleviate post-COVID-19 pandemic hygiene concerns and enable building owners and managers to proactively maintain safe, healthy, clean restrooms that delight their building occupants.”

Onvation leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance restroom servicing efficiency with data-driven, connected software. It monitors, analyzes and measures information that directly impacts labor efficiencies and staffing levels as well as visitor experience and hygiene. Through sensors mounted inside of Kimberly-Clark Professional and GOJO Industries’ PURELL smart dispensers, the Onvation solution actively monitors restroom traffic as well as supplies of soap, toilet tissue and hand towels, and then provides real-time data to alert staff when product levels are low, and service is needed.

Through real-time notifications, restrooms with Onvation technology save time and resources, ensuring dispensers are only serviced when needed. As Kimberly-Clark Professional research suggests, cleaners could spend 25% of their 8-hour shift checking dispensers in an average building. The solution reduces the time spent on this task by more than 90% per year and helps facilities to achieve up to 75% fewer visitor complaints and contributes to organizations’ sustainability goals with up to 80% waste reduction.

“In today’s workplaces, technology is changing the way facilities are managed, allowing janitorial teams and operations managers to work smarter – not harder,” said Hollyhurst. “We’re thrilled to be at Realcomm for the first time, where we have the opportunity to connect directly with our customers and demonstrate the impact Onvation can have on properties that harness the power of smart, connected solutions.”
