Summary: Sodexo has partnered with UVD Robots to enhance its Protecta program, improving environmental hygiene and safety with advanced autonomous UV robots.

Key Takeaways:

  • The partnership with UVD Robots enhances germicidal efficacy and productivity, reducing the need for operator involvement and room turnover time.
  • UVD Robots provide accurate room mapping and performance monitoring, supporting Sodexo’s commitment to maintaining high environmental hygiene standards.

Sodexo, provider of essential, non-clinical services for healthcare organizations, announced a partnership with UVD Robots, maker of autonomous UV robots. By providing the latest innovation in UV, this partnership aims to bolster Sodexo’s Protecta program, elevating environmental hygiene and keeping staff and clients safer.

Commitment to Environmental Hygiene

“Effective healthcare operations demand meticulous attention, extending to rigorous environmental hygiene standards,” said Lisa Zierten, global Protecta brand lead, Sodexo. “Enhancing germicidal efficacy, streamlining processes to optimize productivity, and minimizing operator involvement are critical priorities. We’re excited about collaborating with UVD Robots to implement their innovative solutions, bolstering our commitment to keeping the environment of care safe.”

Advantages of Autonomous UV Robots

The autonomous robots are designed to enhance productivity and efficacy compared to legacy stationary UV equipment. With UVD Robots, workers no longer need to reposition units within rooms, freeing them for other critical tasks and reducing room turnover time.

The robots are also effective against resilient organisms, with accurate room mapping and the ability to get closer to surfaces. UVD Robots feature redundant safety systems and generate detailed reports, showcasing comprehensive mapping and performance monitoring.

Strategic Partnership

“Partnering with Sodexo is an ideal fit,” says Janus Doré Pagh, CEO at Blue Ocean Robotics, the manufacturer of UVD Robots. “Sodexo’s leadership in environmental hygiene serving a variety of facilities across the globe perfectly complements our commitment to delivering advanced self-driving UV germicidal solutions. Together we can empower cleaning and disinfection teams to achieve unparalleled standards of environmental hygiene.”
