Better service at lower cost, that's what we call the Uberisation of Waste !

In the beginning

It’s not that long ago when everyone who worked in an office had their own under desk waste bin. How life seemed so simple back then?

Jump forward a decade or two and that once humble desk bin is just a distant memory. Look around you and what do you see?

You are sat in a smart office fitted out with ergonomically designed furniture that can be adjusted in every conceivable direction and it’s been carefully designed to make working in the office an experience to enjoy.

There are break out areas where you can relax during your break and catch up with your colleagues sharing their daily news.

Work stations are connected enabling you access the information that is required in our busy lives. Smartphones keep us connected 24/7 and can control items within your home even though you’re 50 miles away. Smart Technology is here, affecting every aspect of your world and making it a better place to live and enjoy.

So what has changed, you still have a waste bin, don’t you?

Okay there isn’t one placed at your feet now which means you at least get the chance to have a short stroll to the recycling hub. In the era of sustainability we all have to do our bit whether at home or at work.

The Future is here

The Facility Management team are working very hard to make sure everything is just right for you and that your building is safe. Whether it’s ensuring that the car park has been gritted on that frosty morning before you arrive. The heating, lighting and ventilation systems are all operating at their optimum efficiencies for comfort and energy saving, making the building a sustainable office.

There are so many technologies available helping them to make your building mart by working smart. The cleaning staff also operate smart, not just in the way they present themselves but using the most efficient ways of cleaning your offices, ensuring that it’s a great environment to work in. They’re still on their evolution of becoming smart to bring you a better and seamless service that often gets taken for granted.

The Solution

Waste bins are usually spread across the building. Whatever the size of the building or campus, the current lack of visibility means that cleaning operatives have to visit each bin to ensure that the contract SLA’s are met.

Is there a smarter way to clean your building? Let your waste containers tell you when they’ll be ready for emptying, removing the need for unnecessary service visits to keep you within your agreed contract SLA’s in an efficient, time saving manner.

ISB Smart Solutions provide you with an advanced bin level sensor, Cloud based data collection, a proven fill level forecasting mechanism, and a smart app. Each waste bin is easily identified on a building’s floor plan, thus maximizing the efficiency of your waste bins. Your waste bin now provides you with the exact fill levels, informing when they’ll be full so they can be picked up at the optimum time, whilst ensuring you always meet your contract SLA’s.
