VANCOUVER, April 28, 2020 /CNW/ - mCloud Technologies Corp. (TSX-V: MCLD, MCLD.DB) (OTCQB: MCLDF) ("mCloud" or the "Company"), a leading provider of asset management solutions combining IoT, cloud computing, artificial intelligence ("AI"), and analytics, today announced it had grown its total count of connected assets to 48,672, showing an approximate 18% increase in assets under management quarter-over-quarter since Q4 2019.
This growth builds on the Company's announcement on March 24, 2020 that mCloud had connected over 41,000 at year-end 2019. mCloud has responded to rapidly changing market conditions, including targeted marketing and business development efforts to help businesses impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic become "digitally resilient" through the remote connectivity offered by the Company's AssetCare™ platform.
The Company deploys IoT and AI solution to help restaurant and retail businesses get back to work
mCloud also announced today it is collaborating with industry leaders and medical experts to launch an extension to its AssetCare for Connected Buildings solution segment, using IoT and AI to help restaurant owners and retail businesses return to work quickly and safely as governments and health officials globally respond to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
This AssetCare solution is an "all-in-one" offering powered by the Company's IoT and AI capabilities:
- Indoor air quality sensors and smart thermostats driving clean air inside buildings to mitigate the risk of infection from airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Refrigeration sensors monitoring food safety and protecting inventories from spoilage through automatic compliance with HAACP food safety programs
- Local area occupancy sensors measuring building capacity and automatically verifying businesses comply with local social distancing guidelines where they operate
As with all AssetCare building solutions, mCloud will use these and other technologies to help retail and restaurant facility managers become more energy efficient and sustainable, backed by a global team of retail building experts and 24/7 live operations support.
"mCloud is proud to be helping restaurant and retail owners that have been especially hard hit by COVID-19," said Dr. Barry Po, mCloud's President, Connected Solutions and Chief Marketing Officer. "Since the middle of March, we have helped owners and operators at 15 restaurant and retail brands put numerous closed locations into energy hibernation across Canada and the United States, helping them curb their energy costs by up to 50%."
"We now want to use our AI and IoT capabilities to help retail and restaurant owners get back to work as quickly as possible, helping them ensure they comply with their local guidelines and assure their customers that their establishments are safe to be in when they are permitted to open their businesses again," Po added. "This AssetCare package is a great example of how IoT and AI can be used to make businesses resilient to the unexpected."
