GP PRO Expands Partnership With Comcast

March 15, 2022

GP PRO has expanded its existing partnership with MachineQ, a Comcast Company.

Per the terms of the agreement, GP PRO will shift from its existing proprietary network and will now deliver its KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System to a wide range of facilities using MachineQ’s internet of things (IoT) network connectivity platform. MachineQ’s fully integrated device-to-cloud platform will allow GP PRO to increase value for its customers with a LoRaWAN network that can scale additional use cases and interoperate more easily with other networks. 

“Our goal is to use data and innovative solutions to help our customers address consumers’ hygiene concerns by providing cleaner, safer facilities,” said John Strom, vice president and general manager of GP PRO’s Connected Solutions business. “Our KOLO system is already a highly relevant sensing technology that generates and analyzes important usage data to boost custodial efficiency while helping to reduce outages and waste, benefits that are especially important due to ongoing labor shortages. With MachineQ’s IoT platform, KOLO system customers can now benefit from an enterprise-grade network infrastructure, advanced integration capabilities, and the ability to scale as needed to respond to increased need.”
