SAVORTEX, the multi-award winning hand drying technology manufacturer, has teamed up with Intel to launch the adDryer, the world’s first smart and revenue share producing hand dryer for the corporate washroom sector. It follows successful trials at Heathrow Airport, Cummins and the British Library, and the recent announcement of SAVORTEX as a Successful Innovator by the American Fortune 500 corporation Cummins, as part of its Environmental Gateway programme.
The adDryer is an IoT-enabled smart dryer which includes a digital screen that can deliver tailored, high-definition video messages to users, which can be used for internal marketing or as an additional revenue stream.By working with the building owner, SAVORTEX can create an audience value of the estate based on the users of the building, for example gender, age and occupation. The company’s media buyers can then use this information to set and agree a cost per view rate that will be paid to the building owner each time someone uses an adDryer and sees an advert, thus creating revenue.
Built on Intel technology, the adDryer also alerts cleaners to washroom needs based on actual footfallallowing companies to transform wasteful and costly commercial washrooms into connected, hygienic, and sustainable revenue-producing assets.
Martin McCourt, former CEO at Dyson, said:“It is fantastic to see a British company leading the way in technological innovation. SAVORTEX is a forward thinking and dynamic company with a product range that will revolutionise the washroom sector. I was instantly impressed with the adDryer and look forward to seeing what they do next.”
