ICE Cobotics is developing, manufacturing and deploying autonomous robots for the cleaning industry.

The RS-26 (EMMA) autonomous scrubber has already been successfully introduced to the market internationally. ICE Cobotics will be announcing a new partnership that kicks off with an exciting new product at the upcoming ISSA (International Sanitary and Supply Association) show in Las Vegas November 19-21, 2019.
“Labor continues to be the largest single challenge across facilities in the markets we serve today,” said Intelligent Cleaning Equipment CEO Simon Chen. “We will continue to adopt automation as a part of our everyday lives so expanding our product portfolio fits the demands of the markets and customers we serve.”
In addition to offering intelligent cleaning products, ICE Cobotics will provide the industry with a new, all-inclusive subscription-based acquisition approach to drive better cash flow for customers while keeping them on the cutting edge of improving navigation and software technologies. By subscribing or renting the technology, customers insure they will drive labor efficiency by utilizing the most up-to-date products for their cleaning projects while providing flexibility as the needs change of the professional cleaner. The all-inclusive model will also eliminate unpredictable maintenance costs associated with owning an equipment fleet.
“Our subscription-based approach provides companies a superior alternative for funding their clean compared to traditional capitalized approaches,” said ICE Cobotics US President Mike De Boer. “ICE Robotics can manage the deployment details directly with customers and believes this should be an operating expense for customers versus something capitalized on their balance sheet.”
There are multiple flexible subscription-based offerings that are available to customers through ICE Cobotics. Those offerings range from monthly, quarterly and prepaid billings in order to satisfy each unique customer requirement. The customer adoption of this new technology will be facilitated through on-machine data, a web enabled portal through i-Synergy and across ICE Robotics representatives internationally.
