Savortex has officially launched its ‘Smart’ hand sanitiser, intended to revolutionize the first steps of restarting the office economy in a post-Covid environment. The hand sanitiser uses smart technology to produce a precise amount of sanitiser required without having to touch the device, allowing companies to reopen workplaces with peace of mind.

Savortex has revolutionised the hygiene industry, adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technology in order to reduce energy, operational and cost savings. The award-winning British tech company has manufactured products using smart technology to earn the “highest level of hygiene while delivering real time anonymised data to reveal cleaning patterns and inform building management of accurate protection levels.”

Covid-19 has increased the demand of hand hygiene products which has exceeded supply chain demand worldwide in such a short amount of time. In a time of post-Covid, technology will be essential for overcoming hygiene concerns of building owners and organisations. With the use of IoT technologies to the washroom, the ‘Smart’ hand sanitisers provide a solution to above optimum hygiene within organisation’s buildings. The technology has been developed with Arm® Pelion™ Connectivity Management to ensure workplaces are as safe as possible. The ‘smart’ devices are cellularly connected and operate at the highest efficiency, providing real time data in an attempt to reduce hygiene risks, support building management and minimise energy consumption. 

With the intense growth of the hygiene industry, Savortex will continue to scale out its deployments worldwide with the help of Arm Pelion Connectivity Management. Savortex is assisted by companies such as GSK, Shell and Gatwick Airport, it continues to expand globally, expanding into new markets with partnerships in Hong Kong, Saudi Araia and Dubai. Among the expansion to other markets globally, Savortex has developed strong ties with US, Europe and Africa. 

Syed Ahmed, Founder and CEO of SAVORTEX, says, “Hand sanitisers have been around for decades, but now, due to Covid-19, they are in the front line in the fight against this terrible disease. Our ‘Smart’ Hand Sanitiser provides a safe, ‘no touch’ solution that monitors usage and provides building owners with peace of mind that vital hygiene protocols are being followed.”

Wes Paul, Chairman of the Gemin-i Group and former Global Head of Investments at JP Morgan, says, We rank the health and wellness of our customers as a key priority. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our world, and personal hygiene will need to change as a consequence of new and persistent viral contagion risks. To improve the biosecurity of our clients, Gemin-i has collaborated with SAVORTEX. The British technology manufacturer has developed a technologically advanced smart sanitiser system that will encourage better hygiene behaviour within the workplace.”

Vincent Korstanje, VP and GM, Connectivity, Arm, says, “Health and safety is paramount with the ongoing global pandemic, so Arm partnering with SAVORTEX has been a great opportunity to transform the hygiene industry. Quick deployment is key to addressing the industry needs during this important time. Arm Pelion Connectivity Management enables SAVORTEX to streamline their deployment process and scale out worldwide, wherever hand sanitisers are needed.”
