PORTLAND, OR  - OCT 29, 2013 -- Intellibot Robotics LLC (“Intellibot”) is pleased to make three major announcements: 1) the introduction of the Hydro 17machine, 2) a new Hands-Free Cleaning Operating System, and 3) the Intelli-Trak remote monitoring system. Intellibot is the sole U.S. manufacturer of Hands-Free (robotic) commercial floor cleaners.

“We are very excited about our three new technological advances,” said Erick Frack, President. “We have a new Hands-Free scrubber called Hydro 17 which is a smaller version of the HydroBot – a scrubber for hard surfaces.” Frack noted that the new scrubber has a 17” cleaning swath so is perfect for cleaning floors in smaller areas – aisles and hallways – in buildings such as schools, hospitals, hotels, and retail stores.

“We are also announcing our new Hands-Free Cleaning operating system,” Frack continued. “This new system means you can quickly switch from manual to Hands-Free operation at the touch of a button, and simply walk away.” Frack noted that the new system allows for:

  • true multi-tasking – one person can accomplish twice the work
  • better cleaning – the machines consistently clean the same area, at the same speed, with the same overlapping coverage, every time, every day
  • reduced cost – double, triple or quadruple productivity without increasing labor, which means cost per square foot is dramatically reduced

“Finally, we have a new remote monitoring software system called Intelli-Trak which provides real-time reports noting who ran the machine, time it ran, areas cleaned, duration, and any problems,” added Frack.  He noted that Intelli-Trak monitoring allows for remote diagnostics and repairs that reduce down time and service fees.

The new Hands-Free Cleaning machine and new Operating System advancements will be on display at the upcoming ISSA trade show in Las Vegas, Nov. 19-21.
