Reopen Environments

The advent of COVID-19 has accelerated changes to building and environment operations and reopening strategies. The pandemic has increased cleaning demands and heightened occupant's concern for their well-being. Addressing these demands and concerns requires careful planning of spaces, services and systems to boost occupants' satisfaction in their environment.

How it Works

AIWX Connect works seamlessly to identify building and occupant needs based on real-time occupancy, space utilization and occupant feedback. Insights inform building performance, environmental conditions and occupant satisfaction levels. These insights are used to proactively deliver services based on actual demand, resulting in operational efficiencies, improved productivity and higher customer satisfaction.

IoT Building Sensors

Sensors are placed throughout a building to capture multiple streams of data, including occupancy levels, traffic patterns, temperature, humidity levels, CO2 levels and more. No images, video or personal identifying information (PII) is collected.

Occupant Input

Building occupants provide feedback and request service directly from their smartphones for touchless engagement.

AIWX Connect in Action

3 Success Stories

AIWX Connect has proven successful in the education, healthcare and commercial space — delivering actionable, data-driven insight to improve resource management and customer satisfaction.

office building icon

Commercial Space
Boosts Occupant Satisfaction

AIWX Connect quantified dramatically different feedback by men and women, despite similar restroom usage. Men and women consume paper products at different rates. Yet, most organizations schedule staff to clean and replenish restrooms equally. Information allowed the owner to better understand the needs of its occupants, predict when restrooms need service, and improve customer satisfaction.

Campus Streamlines
Resource Management

AIWX Connect found that 20% of restrooms in a given building experienced no occupancy or traffic. The institution was able to reallocate staffing to areas with greater occupancy. With no additional resources they were able to increase cleaning frequency where it was most needed. The visual cue of the increased frequency is also critical to creating trust among occupants, and the perception of a safe environment.

Hospital Elevates
Patient Satisfaction

AIWX Connect quantified a Utilization Score for restrooms throughout a healthcare facility. Ranked based on cleaning need, the hospital was able to identify spaces that were being overserviced, as well as those being underserviced. The data allowed them to adjust their operation to deliver the right resources to the right space at the right time. Most importantly, they were able to provide additional cleaning frequencies where most needed and without additional resources.

Smarter Facilities

Here’s how AIWX Connect adds intelligence to facilities and operations management.

Smart Spaces

Data via IoT devices, alerts, emails and texts is used to make data-driven decisions about space planning, workplace management, staffing and space scheduling, cleaning schedules and more. Trend information allows for predictive actions to improve service and further reduce cost.

Key Areas Impacted

Occupancy and Space Utilization Occupancy and Space Utilization
Occupancy and Space Utilization
Provides insight on room occupant density, space utilization and time-of-day intensity. Delivers real-time servicing, as well as informs longer-term planning for operational and capital planning decisions.
High Frequency Cleaning High Frequency Cleaning
High Frequency Cleaning

Identifies highly trafficked areas and high-touch points. Supports the intelligent allocation of resources for cleaning, disinfecting and replenishing based on actual usage.

Demand Driven Cleaning Demand Driven Cleaning
Demand Driven Cleaning

Identifies no, low, normal, and high usage of spaces. Optimizes Custodian Cleaning Schedules for cleaning based on spaces actual daily usage

Sample of Smart Spaces Data Points

  • Occupancy and utilization rates
  • Continuous real-time space utilization
  • High- and low-traffic pattern trends
  • Social distancing alerts

Smart Services

Delivers intelligence about occupants’ needs for improved service response. Input from occupant feedback systems trigger immediate actions alerts to building management teams. Attention to occupants’ real-time needs takes occupant satisfaction to a whole new level.

Key Areas Impacted

Occupancy Service Response Occupancy Service Response
Occupancy Service Response

Provides touchless systems that capture occupant requests for service. Data is received in real-time, allowing both immediate service action and informed long-term service planning.

Sample of Smart Services Data Points

  • Real-time requests for product replenishment
  • Space usage and traffic levels by day and time
  • Workflow patterns by location
  • Real-time requests for cleaning or building maintenance
  • Emergency service requests
  • Verified times that space was service

Smart Systems

Delivers intelligence about occupants’ needs for improved service response. Input from occupant feedback systems trigger immediate actions alerts to building management teams. Attention to occupants’ real-time needs takes occupant satisfaction to a whole new level.
