Infogrid Debuts Smart Cleaning Pro for Data-Driven Cleaning Operations

Smart Cleaning Pro delivers a commercial cleaning and management solution to handle the challenge of hybrid working patterns.

May 14, 2024

Infogrid launched Smart Cleaning Pro, a tech solution designed to make commercial cleaning more efficient, proactive, and sustainable. Smart Cleaning Pro will be available standalone and as part of the Softbank Robotics Smart BX solution.  

The product was built to address the longstanding challenges of aligning facilities management and cleaning services with building usage, all of which have been intensified by the era of hybrid working. These challenges range from mounting vacancies to increased operating costs and the rise of unpredictable space usage. It’s estimated that by 2028, cleaning costs alone are set to rise by at least 28%.

Smart Cleaning Pro uses proprietary sensors to provide real-time data and detect when cleaning is needed. The tech solution automates the creation of usage-based tasks, directing cleaners to spaces that need attention for optimum productivity.

An interactive system of wearable devices and LED wayfinding creates a hands-free digital audit trail. The hardware responds to the presence of a wearable fob and will flash a different color based on low- or high-occupant usage, visually signaling whether a space needs to be cleaned. 

Cleaners also can identify high-occupancy areas and automatically log attendance at a cleaning site. Cleaning teams can then use Smart Cleaning Pro’s cloud-based management platform to monitor and validate service delivery and leverage Infogrid’s data analytics with reporting tools.

Additionally, Smart Cleaning Pro offers at-a-glance maps to visualize daily and weekly space usage and understand occupant behaviors. By analyzing space usage trends, Smart Cleaning Pro enables cleaning managers to adjust schedules and allocate resources, enhancing operational efficiency.

“At Infogrid, we recognize the crucial role that cleaning plays in maintaining healthy and productive commercial spaces,” said Kate Henningsen, Infogrid CEO. “Smart Cleaning Pro is the culmination of years of industry collaboration and concerted research and development. We are proud to introduce a completely new and reimagined solution that enables customers to operate more efficiently and sustainably—and with greater insight and visibility—all of which represent the future of the industry.” 

“Softbank Robotics aims to empower customers to operate at the forefront of innovation,” added Jesper Christensen, Softbank Robotics EMEA vice president of product management and customer success sales and marketing. “We are excited to be able to offer Infogrid Smart Cleaning Pro as part of our SmartBX offering, which brings together people, robotics, AI, IoT, and automation to deliver truly intelligent cleaning solutions.”
