In spite of its incredible potential, the hygiene industry is almost bereft of digitalization. This, however, no longer needs to be the case.
Have you ever heard about or seen “autocut” dispensers of paper towels and toilet paper? These are devices that use an inner mechanism to measure the precise amount of dispensed materials. As a result, paper use can be brought down by 40%, the vendor lowers their expenses, while the supplier generates more income. But herein lies the problem – in these dispensers, the toilet paper (or towels) typically cannot be refilled until after they have run out. This means there is always the chance that a client finds themselves without toilet paper.
We tackled the challenge by implementing the SDT framework into dispensers, thereby allowing cleaners to receive text notifications before the paper is used up. This way, they spend much less time making rounds. The vendor, on the other hand, retains complete control over the usage of said materials, along with the ability to manage new shipments at the supplier, which results in increase of revenue and decrease of logistics costs.
