AR-CHECK

The revolutionary invention and
game-changing standard in
commercial cleaning

Based on:

Internet of Things
&
Augmented Reality

A vision becomes reality

The result is a digital and scalable cleaning system that organizes, coordinates and monitors all support, ancillary, assistance and quality control processes involved in the execution of cleaning services in buildings, vehicles, aircraft, ships, streets, cities, etc. independently and with a high degree of automation. Fully and automatically, it controls and monitors these tasks more effectively and in a sustainable higher quality than it was possible before.

In the traditional way of working, the tasks mentioned can only be managed with the help of additional staff, causing considerable additional costs. What’s more, this cleaning system is designed to carry out processes and tasks which were unthinkable until now.

In order to achieve this goal, in the last few years I have developed and patented AR-CHECK, a revolutionary and game-changing new cleaning system for the commercial cleaning business, allowing the optimal organization and administration of cleaning jobs while simultaneously reducing the effort required for work, assistance and control.

AR-CHECK solves a worldwide problem


Presently, cleaning means outsourcing to intermediaries, i.e. service providers who either use their own staff or in turn outsource to varying degrees.

This causes unnecessary costs which ultimately have to be paid by the customer. In addition, a high level of organization and control is required in order to ensure the cleaning quality required. For these reasons or because of unsatisfactory results, some companies which use cleaning services (such as hotels, restaurants, fitness clubs, hospitals, etc.) seek to dispense with external service providers and do the cleaning using their own staff.

However, many companies hesitate to take this step as they lack specialized knowledge and shy away from the high level of effort necessary in terms of organization, support, control administration and the resulting costs.

This leads to the following practical conclusion: the higher the demands made on cleaning, the higher the dependency on intermediaries. Our commercial cleaning system AR-Check combines technology and cleaning work in order to obtain the best results and quality services.

How AR-CHECK works


AR-CHECK combines augmented reality technology with smart glasses. Through the smart glasses, the cleaner sees at any given time which tasks are to be executed as well as when, where and in what sequence the tasks must take place, thanks to this revolutionary cleaning system.

The surfaces (floor, furniture, furnishing accessories, windows etc.) areas that are going to be cleaned are shown with a colored(red ) overlay and the completed areas are displayed in green. In addition, information on the correct execution of the task, the cleaning materials required, working steps and other helpful information is shown in the cleaner’s field of view. The cleaner’s hands are free to work at all times.

The smart glasses work using sensors which are integrated or connected to the cleaning tools (vacuum cleaner, cleaning mop etc. ) or in the cleaning gloves (used for cleaning using rags, brushes, sponges etc. ).

When carrying out the cleaning task, the sensors not only register whether the cleaning tool is touching the surface to be cleaned and whether it is switched on (e.g. vacuum cleaner ), but also whether the contact pressure (threshold level) necessary for effective cleaning is present. Also, AR-CHECK augmented reality cleaning system, detects whether the worker is using the correct cleaning materials.

Example: for reasons of convenience, some cleaners for instance take cleaning rags which happen to be handy but are scheduled for the restroom and use them to clean the kitchen or office. AR-CHECK would recognize this kind of mistake right away and prevent it immediately and effectively. This process helps in the prevention of cross-contaminations.

Only when a cleaning task is carried out correctly does AR-CHECK record the cleaning and show a color change within the field of view of the cleaner (e.g. from red to green).

Each work step executed or not executed, including any omissions and/or mistakes, is recognized and recorded by the device, which triggers processes directly aimed at resuming/maintaining the prescribed working mode. All processes are highly efficient and take place in real time.

AR-CHECK reduces the number of mistakes made when carrying out work and also downtimes while simultaneously increasing the quality of the work.

AR-CHECK makes it a thing of the past to have to provide time-consuming and costly on-site training to ensure the thoroughness of the various cleaning activities and make sure that no area is left uncleaned or accidentally cleaned twice, and it also eliminates any communication problems caused by poor language skills.

With this state-of-the-art cleaning system, we will bring a new and upgraded approach to the commercial cleaning services.

The enormous advantages of AR-CHECK


AR-CHECK, allows the direct awarding of tasks to cleaners and monitors their execution and performance without having to use intermediaries. Using this cleaning system AR-CHECK, the cleaning staff receives computer-based instructions which allow professional cleaning without additional written information or the need for training and job-by-job instruction.

Moreover, using the measuring technology of this augmented reality cleaning system, the customer can monitor the work carried out, taking direct control as to whether the cleaning has been done exhaustively or not.

It is now possible for all companies which use cleaning services (hotels, restaurants, hospitals, etc.) to easily organize their cleaning and monitor it without having to involve intermediaries, using this revolutionary commercial cleaning system. The resulting cost advantage exceeds companies’ investments in AR-CHECK by far.

Fully automated recording of work performed


AR-CHECK allows the user to record the performance in real time based on location, day, time, rate etc. as well as work-specific criteria and invoice it accordingly.

This function is similar to software used for calculating the costs of cell phone calls, SMS, MMS, data usage etc. for a particular mobile phone user.

For the first time, precise calculations, interim cost overview and invoicing are becoming possible in real time as AR-CHECK records each user’s performance on a database server and monitors which work has been executed or is in the process of execution by a particular person, also stating the time, place and rate of completion.

Group intelligence and display of work status


No matter whether cleaning is carried out individually or in a team, AR-CHECK shows exactly who has already cleaned and where, and it also shows where cleaning or follow-up cleaning is necessary.

Using the smart glasses, therefore, each worker can keep track of his own cleaning progress and that of his colleagues.

This avoids costly and time-consuming double cleaning, overlaps and errors.

Smooth transfer of the job and the know-how


Buildings to be cleaned differ in their layout and interior design and have individual cleaning profiles and requirements which have to be taken into account during cleaning.

Also, when intermediaries and/or cleaning staff are changed, it has always been necessary up to now to train new staff on their tasks. However, this procedure costs time and money and is prone to quality issues. For premium cleaning results, trained specialists are a must. This leads to a certain degree of dependency. The cleaning system AR-CHECK is unique in that it turns unskilled workers into trained specialists without any loss of time and effort. It does so by recording cleaning tasks, the results of analyses and customer feedback.

Procedures and experience data which in the past have gotten lost every time the staff was changed, are simply transferred to the new cleaning company or staff. In this way, beginner’s mistakes and repeat errors are avoided, and a smooth transition and the error-free continuation of the work are guaranteed. This pays off in the event that substitutes are hired to replace workers who are on holiday or off sick, and it also allows the bridging of short-term staff downtimes.

Target clients


This commercial cleaning system AR-CHECK was especially developed for the recipients of cleaning services, for example establishments such as hotels, restaurants, hospitals, airports, ships, etc. AR-CHECK is designed to relieve these customers of the time-consuming and elaborate organizational tasks connected with the commercial cleaning system and the high ancillary costs they entail while relieving them from the disadvantages of traditional work methods with their inherent flaws and avoidable costs.

In addition, a special version of AR-CHECK for companies active in facility management and commercial cleaning allows work to be carried out practically and profitably.

Great marketing potential


Commercial cleaning is a trade which employs a large number of people. In the USA alone, the turnover reaches a total of approximately 60 billion US Dollars a year. In Europe, the turnover totals approximately 45 billion US Dollars a year. The turnover worldwide amounts to approximately 400 billion US Dollars a year.

Thanks to its scalability, the cleaning system AR-Check is marketable worldwide, and this increases its potential significantly.

AR-CHECK takes care of the additional services required in cleaning, which account for approximately 40% of the contract amount. As a result of its special functionality AR-CHECK allows additional and new business fields to be built up.
