Back in 2020, Georg Schance, head of facility management at Toma, and Leif Høili, head of technical management at Toma, tell us about the importance of indoor air quality for their business. In particular, they explain how The Airthings for Business solution help them provide a better service.
- Airthings for Business API and Dashboard
Toma is one of the biggest facility management companies in Norway and Denmark. For a company managing multiple buildings, being fully in control of air quality is fundamental.
Toma was facing a problem. Clients in their buildings were often complaining about their indoor air, describing it as “heavy", and found the temperature either too hot or too cold. Toma started looking for a solution. They needed to know in real-time if there was an issue in order to solve it quickly, minimize complaints and create value.
Improving operational management and energy efficiency
Being able to look at air quality issues remotely rather than deploying someone to the location
Ensuring the health and wellbeing of tenants
Resolving tenants complaints of 'heavy air' and 'hot or cold offices'
Toma understands the importance of offering something beyond the standard services package, by improving the wellbeing in their buildings and equipping clients with the optimal conditions to get the best out of their employees. For Toma, the Airthings for Business Dashboard has been particularly important as it provides real-time indoor air quality data across multiple locations instead of reporting on a monthly basis.
Toma explains that Airthings’ emphasis on the wellbeing of building users provides the company with a unique selling point, especially at a time when air quality and environmental pollution are rising on the public agenda. The system gives Toma the necessary tools to improve their business services and differentiate themselves from competitors in the marketplace.
