20 July 2021

[July 20, 2021 - New York, NY:] TRAX Analytics, an industry leader in transforming how businesses manage their custodial operations and facility cleanliness, and Kontakt.io, the global leader in Bluetooth™ powered IoT services, have partnered to provide digital transformation solutions for the janitorial services industry. 

In a world where the demand for cleanliness is increasing, the TRAX - Kontakt.io combined solution is at the forefront of helping janitorial services firms and building operators to create record-keeping of cleanliness, plan for effective routes, and measure performance to improve service,” said Mr. Patrick Trevino VP of Sales & Marketing at TRAX. 

Using easy-to-install, wire-free BLE infrastructure like the kontakt.io Anchor Beacon or BLE-enabled Wi-Fi access points where available, it is now possible to enable smartphones to localize inside buildings. Innovative employee Badge products with built-in Bluetooth capabilities add further flexibility in understanding workflow and service delivery across indoor spaces. 

With live IoT data from the Kontakt.io Building IoT APIs feeding into the TRAX cloud, it is now possible to achieve digital transformation in cleaning services within days.

Using IoT to quantify buildings, delivering outcomes through event stream APIs is the cornerstone of any smart-building initiative,” said Rom Eizenberg, CRO at Kontakt.io, “however the value to building operators and users alike is embedded in brilliant applications. This is why we were thrilled to partner with TRAX. Their innovative cloud application focuses on more efficient and digitally validated building cleanliness - and that could not have come to market in a better time, now when companies look to re-open the corporate building” added Mr. Eizenberg.  

TRAX’s cloud applications, delivered as a service, provide janitorial services with the critical tools to digitally stamp workflows, ensuring appropriate staffing for the job, frequency of cleaning visits, utilization-based resource allocation, and more. Working together with Kontakt.io, TRAX has been able to incorporate Kontakt.io's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and cloud services into its system, resulting in indoor location visibility out-of-the-box. 

Earlier this year, Flagship, Inc was one of the first customers to deploy these innovative digital services. In this case study we show how Flagship, Inc had significant cost savings and service quality improvement in delivering janitorial services in corporate buildings.
