Xeros Extends Hotel Linen Life With Xeros Sbeadycare XTEND Laundry System

Xeros Combines Digital And Polymer Technologies Into a Proven New Add-On Offering of Xeros Sbeadycare to Maximize the Life of Hotel Linens

MANCHESTER, NH and SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2016) - Xeros, the innovator of an ultra-low water laundry system, announced today Xeros Sbeadycare XTEND, a new commercial laundry linen management solution for hotels that has been proven to extend the life of linens and in turn, lowers linen replacement costs as compared with traditional aqueous based washing. Sbeadycare XTEND is a first of its kind product for the laundry industry combining physical and digital technologies into a comprehensive "phygital" solution that utilizes smart, connected washing machines, responsive cleaning programs, and new polymers designed to offer the most gentle and effective cleaning system available. 

Xeros Sbeadycare XTEND will enhance the performance of the Xeros washing system that is currently saving customers millions of gallons of water. See today's related announcement "Hotels save More than 1 Million Gallons of Water with the Xeros Laundry System." 

Xeros customers can choose to seamlessly upgrade their current Xeros System reinforcing the continued and growing benefits of Xeros' innovative and unique comprehensive business model that focuses on customer-centric support and polymer science to solve the changing challenges facing our world and the commercial laundry industry.

With XTEND, hotel laundries no longer have to choose between cleaning performance or a gentler, less effective wash. Xeros Sbeadycare XTEND works in three ways:

Gentler Cleaning - Linens washed with XTEND are not subjected to excessive mechanical action, harsh chemicals, and hot water-which stress linen fibers and reduce their lifetime-found in traditional washing methods. XTEND leverages polymer bead cleaning that uses predominantly ambient water and proprietary soil removal methods leaving linens cleaner with less negative impact to the integrity of the linens.

Stained Linen Recovery - In recent tests, the Xeros reclaim program achieved more than 50% linen recovery rate when compared with traditional processes. Traditional reclaim processes typically use harsh chemicals and aggressive washing. XTEND offers the gentlest yet most powerful reclaim process available by combining new polymer beads, sophisticated digital programming, and targeted chemistry to remove the widest possible range of stains. XTEND removes tough stains more effectively and at a significantly higher success rate while still being gentle on the linens.

Cloud-Based Monitoring and Measuring - The Xeros Sbeadycare XTEND solution monitors and controls the entire laundry process to ensure each step is optimized to deliver superior yet gentle cleaning performance.

About Sbeadycare XTEND
Sbeadycare XTEND requires a Xeros washing system and includes:

1. New polymer beads - XTEND uses the new polymer beads which provide enhanced performance.
2. Digital Programming - XTEND includes new washer programming to run unique XTEND cycles that have been optimized in the Xeros labs for their gentleness and cleaning power. 
3. Sbeadycare CONNECT - A cloud-based system, Sbeadycare CONNECT monitors the entire laundry process to ensure all parameters are optimized to extend the life of linens. A Xeros Sbeadycare technician uses real-time data to recommend modifications to laundry room operators in order to deliver continuous improvements to hotel laundry operations.
4. Sbeadycare Recycle - Xeros provides XTEND customers free recycling of their rejected linens. Xeros believes strongly in protecting the environment and this is another effort, along with delivering water savings, to provide eco-friendly solutions to their customers.

"As demonstrated by the Million Gallon Club, we have solved high water use in the commercial laundry process and saved customers millions of gallons of water. With our Sbeadycare program we are constantly listening to our customers and responding to their needs. Now with the launch of XTEND, we are solving another operational challenge in the laundry room, the expense, hassle and waste of suboptimal cleaning and linen management," said Jonathan Benjamin, Global President of Commercial Laundry at Xeros. "When a customer converts to Xeros, they experience increasing value through continued innovation and partnership designed to make their operations more efficient and sustainable. Xeros SbeadyCare XTEND is a prime example of this and is a testament to the hard work of our world class scientists, engineers, technical support personnel, and forward channel partners to deliver a revolutionary new product that commercial laundry customers are searching for in the market."
