Hyper-development of Touchless Sterilization Innovation to Fight COVID-19
CIRQ+ was launched in 2018 as an IoT solution to meet the needs of hoteliers by enhancing guest experience and reducing runaway energy consumption costs. In March 2020, when the United States shut down to stem the spread of COVID-19, innovators at CIRQ+ did a seismic pivot, leveraging their Ultimate Smart Room platform to develop a viable solution that would create a future of hope and safety, not just for hospitality, but for schools, businesses, venues and more. The solution needed to by superior to old-school, analog solutions. In fact, manual cleaning has been proven to be only 50% effective in cleaning surfaces sufficiently. The goal of CIRQ+CLEAN was to create as 21st century product that provided a smart solution to many vertical markets by mitigating pathogens such as COVID in public spaces..
CIRQ+CLEAN is a touchless sterilization robot designed to restore consumer confidence in travel, education, business and more during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The CBot is a touchless sterilization innovation that dispenses an EPA-registered fluid through an in-room autonomous IoT robot that is programmed to circumnavigate an empty hotel room, school room or office while dispensing an electrostatically-charged disinfectant on surfaces and areas missed by manual cleaning or UV light methods. The non-toxic disinfecting solution has the most up-to-date approvals by the EPA and kills coronavirus and other pathogens on hard, non-porous surfaces and is safe for adults, children and pets. Once the CBot sanitizes the room, then housekeeping/cleaning services can enter and complete routine cleaning. After they finish and leave the room, the robot sprays down the room once again before guests, employees, students or teachers enter.
Research conducted by ATOM Innovation Included: Surveys with travelers, hospitality staff, and educators. Surveys were used to capture perceptions with travel during the pandemic, cleaning and safety strategies in place and the perceptual effects of those strategies, and to gain an understanding of what value this community saw with an innovation such as CIRQ+CLEAN. Findings brought light to the uncertainties that lead towards avoiding travel, and participants saw value with automated, touchless sterilization. Testing took place at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa in Phoenix..
CIRQ+Clean launched in New York City on September 16, 2020, just 4 months to the date of when the US shutdown was announced. The fact that NYC was the hardest by the pandemic, was embraced by leaders in hospitality, education, businesses, restaurants and more. This first to market technology platform offers an impactful solution that will reopen the doors to hope and recovery for our nation where people can Work SAFE, Stay SAFE and Live SAFE once again. CIRQ+ is scheduled to begin shipping in the first quarter off 2021. .
