With the award of the CMS PURUS Innovation Award 2017 (PIA), there was a special highlight at the end of the first day of the fair. The jury honored the innovations of the exhibitors of the International Cleaning Trade Fair in six categories and awarded a special prize.

In the "Digital Tools and Systems" category VERMOP won the main prize.

Vermop Digital offers a future-oriented system for process optimisation. Cleaning equipment with built-in sensors, as well as precise locating of the tools enable real-time data collection.

Networked tools allow traceability at all times, showing where and for how long cleaning took place, which buildings are occupied or how much transit time is required. The innovative technology replaces scanner systems as well as laborious manual inputting by the cleaning operative. Rooms no longer need to be prepared with beacons or barcodes. Through 3D visualisation, the cleaning process can be retraced in detail  and optimised if required.

The system´s openness makes it particularly convincing – the technology can also be used with third-party devices and transferred to other areas. For this reason it builds an important foundation for the future of intelligent process and quality optimisation.
