(TSX VENTURE:VIS) is pleased to share that it’s WANDA™ IoT smart touchscreen solution for managing public spaces has won a top award for innovation in the cleaning industry. The Visionstate technology beat out some of the cleaning industry’s most advanced technology that were competing for the top prize at the Cleaning & Support Services Association (CSSA) Innovation Showcase, an event celebrating the industry’s most innovative products, services and initiatives.

Prior to the Innovation Showcase event, top companies from across the UK presented their most innovative cleaning solutions to a “Dragons Den” panel of experts, vying to be part of the Innovation Showcase. The judging format gave each company 25 minutes to convince the experts from CSSA and CHSA (Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association) that they had the most innovative product.

Eight companies were selected to proceed to the final award round, including Bunzl, Rubbermaid, Unger, Ice, DorsaVi and others. Judging took place at the CSSA Innovation event on March 15, 2018 in London, England, where 140 cleaning industry professionals from 21 companies across the UK gathered.

Ultimately Visionstate’s WANDA technology was recognized with the 2018 Innovation Award. Visionstate’s partner and primary distributor of WANDA, Bunzl, was on hand to accept the award. Charlotte Parr, Account Director at Bunzl, said “WANDA is a very innovative product. It is an interactive washroom tablet that allows us to make informed and educated decisions on our cleaning processes based on real time data and client perception.”

The CSSA is dedicated to driving innovation in the cleaning industry and is the only organization that singularly represents the UK contract cleaning industry.  The next CSSA Innovation Showcase is expected to take place in 2020.
