Hallsten Innovations is a full turn-key development company for custom electronic IoT devices and associated software solutions. Our solution set starts with product definition and architecture and quickly iterates to prototypes with the goal of getting feedback from end users injected into the development process as early as possible. This effort, followed by commercialization activities ensures that the optimized solution gets to market in the most cost-efficient manner possible according to your business objectives.
Strong Partners and Toolkits
Hallsten Innovations understands the need to find partners to bring full IoT ecosystem to the table for our clients. As such, we lean into Losant and others to be providers for Cloud Connectivity, for Dashboard Analytics and Visualization Innovation when their solutions meet the needs of the projects.
Example Project Spotlight: GOJO Industries Smartlink Monitoring System
The GOJO SMARTLINK Hand Hygiene Solution seamlessly integrates into GOJO touch-free dispensers and is key to a successful hand hygiene compliance program that accurately gathers information including dispensing liquid inventory levels.
Hallsten Innovations is proud to have GOJO as one of our long standing clients and to see our design efforts included into their award-winning dispensers. GOJO has continued to lean into Hallsten Innovations to bring the best of what IoT has to offer to their product portfolio.
Tracking Users, Hygiene Opportunities and Device Status
So what does it do? Every time a user walks within, let’s say 4 feet of the device, an Opportunity is recorded. If the user washes his/her hands, an Event is recorded also. The system keeps track of Events versus Opportunities.
The dispenser also knows how much soap is remaining, and can re-order itself pre-emptively based on historical use data. Do you know how many soap dispensers are used in a hospital, university or airport environment? Simply put, GOJO has used IoT to solve a management nightmare.
What does the data provide?
How can data from soap dispensers be used? Well…
- Assess usage with real data.
- Provide proper hygiene education based on the data.
- Identify barriers and issues that prevent optimal hygiene. Is a dispenser hung in the wrong place, making it difficult to get to?
- Data can be analyzed for a better understanding of patterns. Day shift behavior versus night shift behavior for example. During the day, visitors are everywhere and management is present in full force. Eyes are everywhere. At night though…not so much.
- Create an improvement plan armed with actionable intelligence, implement, test, iterate…
Improving Humanity by Improving Business
All of this, from an IoT enabled soap dispenser. GOJO® SMARTLINK™ dispensers combine the latest in IoT technology with their proven germ-killing formulas to help create safe and healthy environments. When you have access to all of the data, decisions are easier - and that's what customers love.
