GP PRO Bats Cleanup for MLB Team

October 12, 2021

This past baseball season, the Texas Rangers became the first MLB team to utilize GP PRO’s KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System.

The KOLO system helped maintain, stock, and clean the 26 public restrooms at Globe Life Field, the Rangers’ home ballpark in Arlington, Texas. The wireless communication platform alerted the stadium’s staff whenever a restroom needed cleaning or when product levels dropped in 882 connected GP PRO paper towel, tissue, soap, and sanitizer dispensers.

“Public restrooms, particularly in high traffic venues, are a major source of user complaints, whether it’s that there’s no paper towels, the soap dispenser is empty, or the restroom wasn’t properly cleaned. The good news is that the KOLO system helps facilities overcome these all-too-common issues with real-time information that helps ensure they’re addressed before they turn into complaints,” said Chris Johnson, customer success leader of connected solutions with GP PRO. “By leveraging the KOLO system, the Rangers and Globe Life Field are setting a new standard in restroom hygiene and in fan experience excellence. We’re thrilled to partner with them.”
