Nov 12, 2021
 

ROSWELL, Ga., Nov. 12, 2021 - Onvation, ranked the #1 smart restroom solution* by Kimberly-Clark Professional, is now a GBAC STARTM Registered Program.  One of the first Programs to receive this designation, the Onvation connected software solution for smart restroom servicing provides real-time notifications for washroom conditions – alerting facilities staff to everything from low product alerts to traffic levels and dispenser maintenance requests.

Traditional commercial restroom management can bring unwanted attention to operational pain points, unintentionally signaling a lack of control over restroom cleanliness. Onvation is transforming restroom cleaning management by leveraging smart-sensing technology to monitor and analyze restroom conditions in real-time, alerting Cleaners when to act. The web-based dashboard highlights usage trends and traffic patterns so teams can respond to restroom needs before they become complaints.

Using a GBAC STAR Registered Program like Onvation, offers a compliance path for a facility to become GBAC STAR Accredited - the gold standard of prepared facilities. Onvation is aligned with the GBAC star 20 elements. Additionally, key benefits include:

  • Sustainability  – Proven to deliver up to 80% in consumable waste reduction**.
  • Better staff allocation – Reduces restroom-related complaints and work orders up to 75%, enabling properties to assign staff to areas according to need
  • Cost reductions – Delivers measurable results, saving money as well as time.
  • Enhanced Tenant satisfaction – Demonstrate the property’s commitment to new and innovative technologies.  

“We are excited that Onvation is accredited as one of the first GBAC STAR Registered Program,” said Heidi Solomon, Head of Global Strategy for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “Onvation is a testament to our 150-year history of rich innovation as we continue our commitment of providing much-needed solutions to our customers. Our goal is to provide exceptional, safe and hygienic workplaces and we are looking forward to partnering with organizations who are working towards their GBAC STAR designation.”
