The product is also preparing the hospitality industry, particularly hotels, be in a safer position when reopening.

And now with the addition of Sufri, Ian is enthusiastic about the coming year. He said:

Sufri is a great fit for our business, with the right experience, enthusiasm and professionalism.”

Plexus Innovation is already successfully rolling out the innovative GUARDIAN® technology and is looking to support the education and healthcare sectors in the near future too.

Current clients have benefitted from uninterrupted compliance management delivered remotely throughout a number of lockdown scenarios, with a range of key issues detected that would not have been possible via manual measurement. Sufri concluded:

“I am immensely enjoying rolling out GUARDIAN® even further, helping more compliance and facilities managers; operational and maintenance teams, and nursing and care professionals to do their job better. This is a truly rewarding role at a critical time for many.”
