FacilityApps is a facility management software company, with a first-rate facility management and cleaning solution, utilizing i.e., IoT and Business Intelligence Dashboards. Read how Haltian provides FacilityApps with IoT sensors for real-time fill rate and utilization data.

Starting point

Real-time data with IoT sensors

The facility industry is shifting quickly towards ‘Cleaning on Demand and maybe even ‘Pay per Usetype of services. To make this happen, buildings need sensors that will trigger actions and cleaners will need to have an application to receive tasks. With long experience in the field of facility management, FacilityApps has developed a comprehensive software solution for managing facilities and cleaning.

FacilityApps has their own amazing software development team and to make their solution complete, they were looking for an IoT hardware provider with wireless sensors that could provide real-time data on paper and towel dispenser fill rates. Haltian was the only IoT solution provider with such a sensor device, and soon other Haltian Thingsee IoT devices were added to the solution. In addition to the IoT sensors, easy integration was a big requirement for FacilityApps. With Haltian, the data gathered by the sensors is transferred to Thingsee OPERATIONS CLOUD, from where its relayed to the customer’s own system seamlessly.

Solution

Off-the-shelf IoT hardware for comprehensive facility management solution

Collaboration between Haltian and FacilityApps started in 2018 and continues today. Haltian provides the Thingsee BEAM sensor for towel and paper dispenser fill rate monitoring, as well as the Thingsee PRESENCE sensor for visitor counting for passageways.

Both devices are wireless, easy to install and provide real-time data for FacilityApps solution.

All the sensors connect to each other creating a mesh network, which makes the installation easy as well as reliable in any building. Data is relayed via Thingsee GATEWAY having embedded standard cellular connectivity that works anywhere in the world. Haltian’s support team overseas all the installations giving FacilityApps peace of mind and allows them focus on their customers.
