Haltian Delivers Devices and Data to Lindstrom Textile Company

By Ken Briodagh February 22, 2018

According to a recent announcement, Finnish Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturer Haltian reportedly is supplying Lindström with more than 100,000 IoT devices and a managed IoT data layer service. The multi-million euro deal is one of the largest public IoT installations in Europe to date. Smart technology will be rapidly implemented in all of Lindström’s towel dispensers.

“IoT continues its rapid growth and it is expected to more than double in the next three years. Industrial asset management, inventory and warehouse management and supply chain management are the fastest growing IoT areas,” said Pasi Leipälä, CEO, Haltian.

Together with Haltian Thingsee and Wirepas Mesh, Lindström has created a new service offering called Flowability Smart Washroom Service. The solution is designed to offer two-way communication and location information and provides reliable wireless connectivity for Lindström Group customers across their facilities. With this smart solution, Lindström aims to increase efficiency by cutting waste and channeling work in a smarter way, thereby decreasing costs.

The Flowability Smart Washroom Service will be installed in shopping centers, hospitals and other public spaces. A sensor retrofitted to the towel dispenser measures towel usage in real time. The sensor sends notifications to a site maintenance team when it is necessary to change towel rolls, which helps in planning work more efficiently and in decreasing costs.

“Washroom cleanliness affects the choice of shopping venue and even increases the value of purchases. With Haltian’s solution we save both money and time and keep our customers happy. All of these make it possible to improve the customer experience,” said Satu Haikarainen, Director, Service Concept, Lindström.
