Idea

UNIART Dispenser is the most economical, environmentally friendly, and most sophisticated touchless automatic hand sanitizer dispenser in the world! It is specifically designed for high traffic areas such as airports, shopping malls, medical, educational, military and other governmental institutions, etc, to prevent the spread of infection and protect employees and visitors while minimizing operational costs. This is the First IoT Connected Hand Sanitizer Dispenser in North America with Remote Cloud Monitoring Web Interface and Acess Control Integration. Made in Canada.

Current Status

This product is already on the market, since July 2020. Our clients include dozen of schools, grocery stores, hospitals, private clinics, car dealerships, restaurants, private businesses, warehouses, etc (over 50 clients and over 200 units sold).

Market

Our main customers: all places with high traffic areas - schools, universities, colleges, clinics, hospitals, public places, manufacturing facilities, stores, supermarkets, shopping malls, cultural places, hotels, restaurants, airports, public transportation, government institutions, warehouses, corporate offices, business centers, etc across North America.

Problem or Opportunity

As a result of the massive spread of COVID-19, hand disinfection in public places has become mandatory. Prior to this problem, there were no devices for continuous hand disinfection in crowded places and at the entrance to various public places. Small plastic dispensers were not designed for continuous operation and overload. They demanded special refill cartridges with an expensive liquid that at the beginning of pandemia became scarce and the daily replacement of expensive disposable batteries were polluting the environment. Companies began to look for dispensers that would provide the ability to disinfect the hands of a large number of visitors at the lowest cost and with maximum reliability and uptime. They also wanted to be independent of producers and suppliers of the sanitizing liquid that monopolized the industry. Finally, they wanted to minimize the maintenance and repair of the units while also reducing the amount of time their employees devoted to its upkeeping.

Solution (product or service)

Taking into account detailed analysis of the problem, having more than 15 years of experience in the development of various automated systems, we created the first prototype of the dispenser in March 2020, conducted two-month field tests in real conditions with customers and launched the production of the final version of our dispenser in July 2020. Today, our dispenser is unique in that its reliability, quality, lowest maintenance cost and the most effective way to disinfect hands in high traffic areas. It is also the first dispenser with a WiFi and LTE IoT Cloud Remote Monitoring Platform that saves thousands of dollars in operational costs in places such as hospitals, schools and supermarkets. The dispenser is guaranteed to disinfect 7000 - 8000 people without a single rechargeable battery, disposable cartridge, or any maintenance time from an employee of the establishment. One gallon of sanitizing liquid provides up to 8000 sprays, and one rechargeable battery allows up to 200000 sprays. After 6 hours of charging, the dispenser is ready to be used again. We estimate that with the use of our dispensers, our customers have already saved about 15,000 disposable batteries and just as many disposable plastic cartridges, which would have made a significant devastating impact on the environment.

Competitors

There are no competitors in the North American market yet. No analogs with 1-gallon liquid capacity, rechargeable battery with 200000 cycles or 3+ month standby, mist spraying and liquid quantity adjusting, medical-grade stainless steel body, castor wheels, 1-year warranty and many other unique features.
And this is the first automatic hand sanitizer dispenser for high traffic areas connected to WiFi or LTE IoT Cloud Remote Monitoring Tool and Access Control Integration.
Other alternatives exist however they use older models of soap dispensing, cheap plastic materials susceptible to breaking and corrosion, disposable parts and batteries, required constant 110V power connection, and products with short-term life expectancy.

Advantages or differentiators

The main advantages are the big liquid capacity tank, long-lasting rechargeable battery, unique military-grade reliable electronic components, wireless cloud remote work status monitoring, no-rust stainless steel body, 1 year warranty, production precise quality and quality assurance of more than 20 different points before delivery.

Finance

Our MRSP is 1400 CAD per unit. We provide special discounts for local businesses, non-profit organizations, and government institutions.
We expect new social hygienic norms to take place all over North America. The pandemia will go away, but people's desire for a cleaner and safer environment will remain. Customers will demand it from institutions and businesses and in turn, businesses and institutions will look for ways to implement these hygienic procedures as a long-term, not-intrusive solution into their environment. Our dispensers will provide that long-term, reliable and sleek solution that will increase customer satisfaction at the lowest long-term cost to the institution.

Business model

We manufacture dispensers in Montreal. We sell directly B2B and we build distributor and partner network. We have effective cooperation with companies who produce sanitizing liquid. They already have their own distribution network and clients and they offer our dispenser with their liquid pack or offer products together as a vending service or lease financial model.
