Further Award Recognition For HSG
Date posted: 14.09.2018
HSG beat off stiff competition from other Derbyshire companies to win the award which was in recognition of the savings in costs and resources for customers achieved through the company’s unique two-fold system – the Ureco and Uretech.
The judges also applauded HSG's research and development of the Cleen App and Dashboard which is the UK’s first fully integrated management tool and review app designed to raise washroom standards.
Managing Director Simon Rice will also represent the East Midlands in the Institute of Directors national awards in October having won the regional award for Innovation and the company has just been announced as finalists in the Midlands Family Business Awards – again for Innovation.
Simon Rice said: “We are a Derby-based SME which is definitely punching above our weight and it is wonderful that our investment in innovation has been recognised by these awards.
“They have definitely spurred us on to continue to embrace new technology and develop ways for our customers to better manage and improve the washroom environment.
“Such innovation not only saves our customers money and resources – it also enhances the visitor washroom experience which can never be under estimated.
“Our latest innovation is the Cleen App which is gathering pace both in downloads and interest from venues who are keen to better manage their facilities.”
“We are therefore well on course to achieving our aim of changing the world one washroom at a time.”
The Ureco urinal sleeve and Uretech water management system is already installed and achieving unrivalled water and money savings in some of the UK’s top venues.
These include the 02 Arena in London, NEC in Birmingham, major restaurant chains such as Pizza Hut as well as in top football clubs and some of the largest retail shopping centres across the country.
The Ureco stops smells by trapping urinal odours below the surface and reduces blockages through the patented enzyme system which breaks down the fat, acid and salt in urine.
This enables the Uretech to reduce urinal flushes from around 96 times to just four times a day.
As a result, the customer benefit by saving money on utility bills, reducing water usage and stopping blockages and smells which improve the washroom experience for customers and reduce costly repairs
HSG has continued its innovation, backed by extensive research and development, with the recent launch of the Uretech Plus professional water management solution.
Fitted onto a venue’s existing water meter, Uretech Plus uses the latest Wi-Fi technology to provide minute by minute readings of water usage to a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Furthermore, HSG's reputation for innovation continued with the launch this year of Cleen - which has the capacity to be a game changer in washroom standards.
The aim is for Cleen to become the ‘Trip Advisor’ of washrooms – recognising that customers judge a business, particularly serving food, by the cleanliness of its washrooms.
Cleen is the UK’s first fully integrated management tool and review app to help venues and washroom services providers address issues and promote their high quality facilities.
The Cleen App is free to download onto a smartphone and enables washroom users to log reviews of facilities in any type of venue.
Businesses and washroom services providers sign up for their own Cleen Dashboard to gain immediate email alerts to reviews.
This enables them to take action, directly respond to customer feedback or promote positive reviews. It also provides detailed daily, weekly and monthly reports on review trends and issues for evaluation and monitoring of facilities.
To enable businesses to receive even more reviews directly on-site, HSG has more recently introduced a new product called the Cleen Tablet. These Data Stations can be installed in or near washrooms for ease of feedback.
