The largest plumbing company in the world, TOTO, has announced that it will work with MachineQ, a Comcast Company, to make it easier to install its Internet of Things (IoT) smart bathroom products in high-traffic public restrooms across the U.S. TOTO's partnership with MachineQ will enable the company to expand the installation of its innovative smart restroom products, such as automatic hand-dryers and soap dispensers, into areas that were previously difficult to access due to a lack of resources.
The partnership will allow TOTO's smart restroom products to better solve real-world business issues for facility managers, such as reducing audits, decreasing downtime, increasing employee efficiency, and increasing consumer satisfaction with their public restroom experience. Through this collaboration, TOTO and MachineQ will be able to increase the number of smart restroom product installations in public restrooms across the United States.
Hidemi Ishikawa, CEO of TOTO USA, said, "Utilizing MachineQ's fully integrated device-to-cloud platform enables TOTO to further increase the value our IoT smart restroom products provide to facility managers." He added, "With MachineQ's LoRaWAN® network, which interoperates easily with other networks, TOTO's IoT-enabled products easily integrate with facilities' smart restroom monitoring systems or building automation systems across the U.S." (Source – CISION PR Newswire)
The partnership will also let TOTO connect its Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled products to intelligent restroom monitoring systems in buildings or build automation systems across the U.S. This will let facility managers keep an eye on and manage restrooms in real time. This will give them the ability to plan ahead for problems, deal with them quickly and effectively, and keep a high level of cleanliness all the time.
