Logo Vichydro Connect

In partnership with SDEB, producers of “HYDRO” gel distribution dispensers, PERCALL offers a complete VICHYDRO CONNECT solution that meets the needs of managers and users who consume hydroalcoholic gel:

• Prediction of your gel consumption
• Control of your orders
• Optimization of your operator’s interventions
• Follow-up of your consumption
• Location of dispensers

VICHYDRO CONNECT is the output of PERCALL’s innovation teams, who designed and developed the application and material solution (sensors) prior to industrialization within L’AQUARIUM, the PERCALL Lab based in Vichy.
The dispensers that we deploy in airports, rail stations, tourist sites, towns, public buildings, schools, museums, or even within a company or as part of sporting events and festivals, are equipped with low energy consumption sensors and are controlled through a software solution that provides the appropriate functions for managers, operators and users.

The answer to your challenges

Guaranteeing safe access to public places, meeting new health standards, always making hydroalcoholic gel available for visitors on all sites: supply of gel will quickly become unmanageable and very costly without any assistance.
In order to meet current health constraints and provide a quality service to users, VICHYDRO CONNECT is the solution to optimise the management of hydroalcoholic gel.
