Benefits of Smart Control

We can tell you all about the benefits of Smart Control. But don’t just take our word for it. Recently, Schneider Electric did a case study about Smart Control at Elis, one of the world’s largest laundry chains.

Here the key findings:

  • On average, Vartex customers run 30% more volume, without increasing costs.
  • The output of Vartex ’customers increases on average by 20%.
  • The collection and analysis of data is automatic, which saves companies costs and prevents information from being lost.
  • Considerable time and cost savings by reorganizing washing processes.
  • Selecting washing programs is less time-consuming and error-prone. Operators select the right washing programs for each batch on a well-arranged display.

Praise for Smart Control

“(…) Everything is aimed at allowing the operator to always choose the most optimal program. This reduces the use of chemicals and prevents wear and tear of the laundry. At the same time, he receives all the current information about the progress to avoid possible malfunctions. With this new technology, Vartex customers are able to achieve 32 percent more output with the same number of machines. “

Sander Dasselaar

Vice President Industry Benelux, Schneider Electric

“Last year, thanks to Schneider Electric and Vartex, we ran 32% more batches at the same cost. (…)

Good monitoring gives you clearer insight into everything. Such as: How soiled are those clothes? Can’t this be done with a lighter washing program? So that you use fewer chemicals, but also that you need much less time. In principle, you can save 50% of your time. And then you can run 50% more machines. That can ultimately save you a lot of money.

(…) With Smart Control, the operator only takes one action, so you make fewer mistakes. “
