Global sourcing and distribution company Bunzl Canada recently announced the installation of its Internet of Things (IoT)-based restroom monitoring system, WandaNEXT, at two grocery stores in the greater Toronto area (GTA).
“First-to-market innovations that help maximize operational efficiencies and improve customer experience are a strategic imperative for forward-thinking grocery and retail industries,” said the company’s president John Howlett. “As a national distribution business, we continue to source innovative technologies that benefit businesses and build competitive advantage for customers.”
The smart technology solution features a touchscreen interface, which tracks cleaning, maintenance, and supplies in restrooms. This real time-data enables facility maintenance teams to optimize resource allocation and improve efficiency in retail, healthcare, airports, conference centres, and commercial environments.
“WandaNEXT is an easy-to-use technology, which not only improves customer experience, but also optimizes labour and supply management, and that can lead to reduced costs,” said the company’s marketing and communications vice-president Margo Hunnisett. “We anticipate a continually increasing demand for this product as customer-centric businesses strive to maximize efficiency while delivering an unrivalled store experience on each customer visit.”
