WhiffAway at The Facilities Show “The future of washroom management”

Visitors to stand number FM5846 at The Facilities Show – at London’s ExCel from 18th to 20th June 2019 – will meet WhiffAway Group. A market leader in waterless urinal technology, biological solutions and closed systems, the company has now also developed and installed the world’s first fully connected smart washroom technology.

Rising washroom standards and customer expectations have driven Facilities Managers to find more innovative ways of monitoring performance. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled service providers to collect data, track patterns and effectively manage resources to avoid run-to-breakdown scenarios.

Delivered as a turn-key solution, WhiffAway’s Smart Washroom uses IoT enabled sensors to collect data within the Smart Washroom. The application provides an interactive 3D washroom platform, while an easy to navigate user interface delivers data in a measurable way.

WhiffAway Smart Washrooms provide a scalable platform and delivery model which monitors usage patterns and generates reports, while helping to determine what drives the customer experience. Use of the data enables continuous improvements and drives efficiencies. WhiffAway’s Smart Portal captures real time data, providing a status of assets in the washroom and this is presented on a user-friendly dashboard which can be easily customised to present data in different formats and personalise alerts.

Sensor applications include: usage sensors – determining usage and ‘end-of-life’; wipe sensors – to monitor urinal cleaning patterns; tap sensors – to identify temperature and stagnant water conditions for Legionella control; air quality sensors which monitor relative humidity, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), C02 and temperature; and waste pipe sensors – to predetermine maintenance patterns and help avoid ‘run to breakdown’ scenarios.

All mechanically-based systems require maintenance. WhiffAway’s smart platform system enables service providers to carry out routine maintenance when required – and real-time data helps identify problems before they occur, reducing expensive reactive call-outs. Identifying traffic patterns enables engagement with designers to improve washroom formats and manage capacity.

“WhiffAway Smart Washrooms Platform delivers a wide range of benefits for Facilities Managers,” said CEO James McLean. “By collecting data in real-time, trends can be identified to prompt routine maintenance of delivery systems and the replenishment of consumables. This, in turn helps avoid unnecessary breakdowns and increases customer satisfaction. The future of washroom management is here.

“And when it comes to waterless urinals, alongside the obvious benefits of odour elimination and significant water, energy and monetary saving, our fully-recyclable solutions also eliminate flooding, improve hygiene and use no harmful chemicals. Supporting our world-class products, we provide a fully serviced solution for our customers which includes regular service visits – guaranteeing peace of mind.

“From waterless urinals to smart washrooms, we are looking forward to showcasing our range of washroom solutions at The Facilities Show in June.”
