Rentokil, a world leader in pest control, had spotted the potential of the Internet of Things to improve services. The company want to roll out connected traps (fitted with a sensor that sends a message whenever a trap needs clearing) to 10,000 customer sites within less than a year.
Working with our partner, Google, and using Agile techniques, our digital experts took just 12 weeks to develop and launch a new cloud platform to support the roll-out. The platform offers Rentokil infinite scalability for the future and, with this, the opportunity to explore new ways of using data to transform its business.
“We had huge confidence that PA could deliver for Rentokil – and that proved to be well placed. But the team’s thoughtful, creative and collaborative approach means we have ended up with something much more powerful than we envisaged at the outset. This platform provides extraordinary insight into our operations and our customers’ needs, and opens up new possibilities for future innovation.”
