Whiz Vacuum Robot
As the Covid 19 pandemic continues to grip the world with infection and an ever-increasing death toll, humanity is struggling to cope with a pandora’s box that is spewing out mutating viruses and clusters of bacteria. Although the vaccines are being administrated across many countries, this global crisis is far from over.
There has been a lot of awareness in terms of various safety measures to prevent the spread of the disease and it is the responsibility of every citizen to keep the surroundings clean and safe. When it comes to deep cleaning of large public places, it becomes a formidable task for any facilities management team to deploy resources on a large scale and manage the operational expenditure. However, deep cleaning is necessary to ensure the safety of customers and personnel. This is where round the clock automated machines can aid front-line cleaners/ janitors to perform the job more efficiently.
Jacky’s Business Solutions LLC is a leading Emerging Technology Company with a specialization in Robots for various industries with evidence of used cases. Based in the UAE with the coverage of the Middle East & GCC countries including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and Kuwait through the established ecosystem of Solutions partners and re-sellers, Jacky’s has brought “Whiz” the vacuum Robot to autonomously clean the floor and transform the region.
Whiz Robot is manufactured and marketed worldwide through Soft Bank Robotics who are also the market leaders for Humanoid Robots Pepper and Nao.

Programming these robots is easy and simple. Once the initial setup is done it can be a routine task for your office cleaner to operate the equipment daily while he can be engaged in more meaningful work resulting in quality output.
What is Whiz?
Whiz is a commercial vacuum robot developed by Softbank Robotics which works Autonomously using the Artificial Intelligence platform which delivers ultimate performance in daily cleaning of the floors there by providing you huge cost savings, efficient cleaning, and higher productivity!
How can the Whiz robot be useful in Retail?
When we are talking about Retail, it could be a shopping mall, supermarket, hypermarket, department stores, specialty stores, pharmacy, or a boutique. These are typical places were customers flock in continuously for purchasing product of their need.
In a post Covid-19 world, the emphasis on cleaning has come to the forefront in retail. Therefore, it has become a necessity to keep the floors dirt-free in order to provide a safe and great shopping experience for their customers, guests and staff members.
However, given the traffic that retail establishments have throughout the day, it is important to make sure that this cleaning happens regularly. The facilities team can have a huge task on hand in daily cleaning from one end to another and doing it almost 24x7x365 days. Imagine the costs incurred in having manual manpower to do these tasks daily. This is where automation comes into effect!
With the numerous atriums and walkways that exist inside most shopping malls or retail stores, it is more efficient to have robots clean these floors given that they make up a significant floor space within a mall or retail outlet.
The Middle East has amongst the highest density of shopping malls with respect to the size of the population, thus the pressure to maintain these malls and keep them safe has meant the strain on maintaining cleaning staff has become a bigger challenge.
With Whiz the vacuuming robot, you can make the robot work 24x7x365 days. This is possible due to the way it is constructed along with its replaceable lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. As the Robot can independently work autonomously, your manpower can be instructed to work on more sensitive points such as cleaning vertical objects and surfaces which a robot cannot handle. For example, the manual cleaner can be used for spot cleaning and areas such as corners, edges and under the furniture and this would enable every company to bring in positivity.
Therefore,the perceived benefits are as follows:
- Save on manpower costs by having a mix of manpower + the Robots, where they work together as co-workers- we call this as COBOT work culture!
- Do not worry about staff taking sick leave or any emergency leave! While the Whiz can continue to provide you quality floor cleaning jobs.
- Improve the air quality level as the robot can perform deep cleaning providing a healthy atmosphere and hygiene environment.
- Get more output from the robot compared to the manual cleaners.
- The Whiz robot can work on any types of surfaces such as carpets, tiles, mosaic, and wooden floors too.
- Get notifications of work status through the pager and mobile phones.
- With the help of SAAS web application, management team can get all the insights and statistics about the cleaning records performed by the robot.
- Irrespective of the office time, the robot can be put to use any time when needed.
How does Whiz Work?
- Easy Set-up: First time… the robot must manually scan and store the floor map. Once the route map is programmed, the robot remembers the route the next time.
- Flexible & Safe Autonomous cleaning: With the built in AI capabilities, Whiz can easily avoid obstacles and avoid moving people and objects.

Why should you consider Whiz?
Smart Cleaning: Daily manual cleaning can be boring or mundane for the janitors and cleaners to accomplish. In the process they could easily compromise on the quality of the work. With the introduction of Whiz Robot, the process can be completely automated.
Performance: Whiz robot can easily outperform the manual cleaners in terms of output productivity. Whiz robot can consistently deliver high quality of cleaning which you can track, verify, and monitor.
Productivity: As the robot can be scheduled and assigned for daily vacuuming, the manual cleaners time can be invested in more value-added work such as cleaning of the doors, handles, under the furniture, corners, edges, windows, and sanitization. Therefore, you can save time and productivity will be increased.
Health & Wellbeing: With the consistent & high-quality cleaning by the whiz, the air quality of the environment can significantly improve especially for the people who are allergic to fine dust particles in the air. This will result in good health of the employees and reduced absenteeism through a hygienic environment.
