Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

SCA, Stockholm, Sweden, along with its global hygiene brand Tork, is offering two new IT-based washroom services--Bloe® washroom service and Tork EasyCubeTM. The services provide real-time data from washrooms, such as toilet use and refill consumption. The data are easily accessible and interpreted online—either via an office computer or in the field via smartphones and tablets. Cleaning providers will have an instant overview of when and where a cleaning is needed, moving from static cleaning schedules to cleaning when needed.
"SCA’s innovation activities are fueled by an in-depth understanding of the everyday needs of our customers and consumers. Innovations such as Tork EasyCubeTM and Bloe are important for our future success and competitiveness. This also further strengthens our customer and consumer loyalty and satisfaction," said Jan Johansson, president and CEO at SCA. 
Tork EasyCubeTM is an intelligent system developed together with facility service companies. Based on real-time data from smart dispensers, Tork EasyCubeTM empowers facility managers and their teams to move from static cleaning schedules to cleaning when needed. 
Bloe, SCA notes, is a new service solution based on real-time data from connected toilets and urinals with sleek design. It provides end-users with an elevated washroom experience and cleaning providers with insights about visitors and usage. It also includes integrated screens for visual communications towards visitors, and innovative features to automatically facilitate cleaning, control odors, and reduce water usage. A unique ventilation system with aromatic oils creates an invigorating fragrance throughout the washroom. 
These services will initially be available in selected markets in Europe. More information is available online.
