Butler Hospitality Protects Workforce With Hand Wash Technology
Apr 27, 2021, 08:00 ET
LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Butler Hospitality, Inc., the first ghost kitchen for hotels, is now the first ghost kitchen in the United States to utilize Vitalacy's health and hygiene technology to invest in staff safety.
The IoT enabled SaaS solution encourages and monitors staff hand washing to better protect Butler's workforce from risk of infection and comply with new food & safety regulations. Along with Vitalacy's automated contact tracing, Butler can operate with higher safety, efficiency and compete against other food delivery services in recruitment and customer value add when safely delivering to hotel guests.
"Butler's partnership with Vitalacy reflects our longstanding commitment to leading the hospitality industry to a safe and healthful recovery for the benefit of our staff, hotel partners, and guests," Butler Hospitality CEO & Founder Tim Gjonbalic.
Butler staff wear Vitalacy SmartBands that remind them to perform a hand wash every hour. Washes are confirmed using enabled soap and sanitizer dispensers in the front and back house of kitchens. The wearable sensors also track proximity to other users. If a staff member tests positive, users they interacted with (for too close for too long) can be notified by management through an online dashboard that they may have been exposed.
"We are honored to be incorporated into Butler Hospitality's employee safety plan and help them expand national operations responsibly." Janel Nour-Omid, Vitalacy CEO and Cofounder.
Vitalacy was recently awarded Newsweek's Best in HealthCare 2020 as one of the best monitoring products for infection prevention. The technology improves how often and how well health care workers wash their hands to lower risk of healthcare-acquired infections and keep both caregivers and patients safe.
