GP PRO Teams With Butlr Technologies

February 18, 2022

GP PRO has established a marketing partnership with Butlr Technologies, a spin-out of the MIT Media Lab.

The agreement calls for Butlr’s people-sensing platform, which uses wireless sensors and artificial intelligence to passively detect human presence indoors, to be paired with GP PRO’s KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System. The collaboration will help facilities enable traffic-based cleaning while enabling labor savings. The two organizations will also reference the other in appropriate customer conversations and help drive market awareness of each brand’s sensing and monitoring capabilities and promote the benefits to be gained by deploying both. 

“Butlr demonstrated a great deal of insight in developing its Heatic platform as a way for facility managers to address several critical implications from COVID-19,” said John Strom, GP PRO vice president and general manager of connected solutions. “When deployed in combination with our KOLO system, there’s no doubt in my mind that customers will achieve a new level of operational efficiency and hygiene. In tandem, these two technologies have the potential to dramatically and positively impact facility management.”
