The cost of toilet paper can have a significant impact in overall profitability according to a recent survey by DayNovo Consulting. Trends in frequency of bathroom visits, size of sheets dispensed and the increase in frivolous use of paper have contributed to a 75% increase in cost per capita in North American companies.
Now a Reston, VA startup has stepped in to offer welcome respite. Their network-enabled toilet roll dispenser puts the control of toilet paper cost firmly into the hands of the CTO. An easy to use management screen enables CTOs to tailor the precise size of sheets and frequency of "outages" to meet their needs.
The results of a trial at a DC area retail company have proved impressive. "We cut out over $50K in overhead from using the system. Our employees spend less money per visit, and more time back at their desks."
