Visionstate's WANDA, a Manning Award Nominee

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 16, 2013) - Since 1982, the Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has acknowledged and awarded Canadian innovators that have demonstrated remarkable advancements in their respective fields. The Manning awards originated from the idea that Canadian creativity needed to be promoted and it has grown into the country's most prestigious annual award. Paired with the positive exposure and unequalled recognition is the $100,000 prize for the Principal Award or the $10,000 prize for the innovation award.

Visionstate Inc., a division of CSM Systems Corp, is honoured to be nominated for this esteemed award regarding WANDA. WANDA (Washroom Attendant Notification Digital Aid), Visionstate's latest innovation, integrates touchscreen technology with a facility's janitorial operation, improving efficiencies and staff accountability in order to better serve the end client. A clean environment may not directly be a profit centre, however by properly maintaining a facility, such as a restroom, you guarantee the health and satisfaction of the end-user.

"To be mentioned in these discussions of innovation is an honour. Our business is based on imagination and creativity regarding technology in public spaces. WANDA embraces this mindset and applies it perfectly to restroom management."

John Putters, President, Visionstate Inc.

In a shopping centre, this means your shoppers are pleased with their overall experience; In an office building, this expresses an attention to detail; In a hospital, it ensures a healthier environment for patients, visitors, and staff.

On the surface, the WANDA unit acts as a liaison for the customer to instantly express grievances to management regarding cleanliness or supply shortages at the touch of a screen (i.e. hand sanitizer, soap, paper towel, dirty). Moving forward, staff are immediately notified of the issues by email, and can now instantly respond to remedy the situation. Additionally, staff log-in to WANDA to record their actions and supplies required.

With all the data being recorded, management can now determine benchmarks in staff performance and trends to streamline operations in the future. Our innovation re-imagines the processes involved with maintaining cleanliness, allowing organizations to effectively save money and serve their guests.

Visionstate continues to strive to be a leader in interactive touchscreen software for public spaces.
