To drive innovation in the cleaning industry, SoftBank Robotics Singapore (SBRSG) will support Conrad Maintenance in digitising cleaning services with the use of robotics solutions, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to deliver on-demand efficient cleaning services.
The partnership aims to transform the cleaning industry, especially in the face of the current tight labour shortage post-pandemic as companies look to use manual labour less and make smarter decisions about how, where and when to deploy machines.
Through this cooperation, SBRSG and Conrad Maintenance aim to transform the cleaning business by integrating and scaling with robotic solutions. SBRSG will be able to accelerate the growth and adoption of "Cleaning Digital Transformation" through Conrad Maintenance and provide high-quality and low-cost cleaning with substantial cost savings.
Raymond Ng, founder and chief executive officer at Conrad Maintenance, says its partnership with SBRSG allows for the enhancement of world-class cleaning services that will seamlessly integrate all Conrad’s offerings into one user-friendly system making it easier than ever for the company to manage its cleaning and facility maintenance solutions.
Advanced cleaning services utilising robots have been proven to significantly reduce costs and improve cleanliness, allowing employees to gain new technical skills and work with new technologies. Conrad Maintenance will leverage SBR’s knowledge and experiences accumulated in a smart facilities management service.
Coinciding with SBRSG’s investment in Conrad Maintenance is the launch in Singapore of SmartBXTM (Smart Business Transformation) – a facilities management service which Kenichi Yoshida, chief business officer at SoftBank Robotics says brings unparalleled automation, convenience and robotics solutions to their customers.
“This move signals the true transformation of SoftBank Robotics to a Robot Integrator and a robotics services provider in the cleaning space while delivering the seamless integration of robotics, AI and sensors on top of cleaning efficiency and efficacy,” he added.
