With technology supporting its employees, Hago Next provides full transparency in price and process, with the guarantee of a clean working environment.

The choice of Hago Next for Thaumatec was based on the fact that Thaumatec was able to translate a business idea into a technical IoT solution and deliver a Proof of Concept of smart facility management tool within 6 weeks.

The challenge

From clean office to healthy working environment

The ultimate goal of a clean office is to create a healthy environment for the people working in it. Thereby increasing the job satisfaction and reducing the overall rate of sick leaves. However, there are many factors influencing the work environment. How to know what they are, how do they influence each other and how to measure them? These questions need to be answered before a solution can be provided.

The solution

Smart cleaning cart

In order to measure the status of the working environment, the Smart Cleaning Cart has been developed. A standard cleaning cart has been equipped with a sensor box for measuring air quality (dust, CO2, humidity, temperature, light).Through the connection with an Internet of Things platform, the data can now be measured and analyzed. Together we created a perfect smart facility management tool.

Results

“The Proof of Concept enables Hago Next to gather data from their cleaners, that are making their cleaning rounds in the office buildings. Through the analyses of this data taken from our smart facility management cart, Hago Next will be able to advise its customers on how to provide a healthier working environment and increase productivity. The smart cleaning cart enables Hago Next to transfer from a standard cleaning company to a healthy working environment consultant.”
