Bathroom experiences can easily alter one’s view on a restaurant, business or school. According to Bradley’s 2013 Healthy Handwashing Survey, 64% of Americans say they’ll think twice about patronizing a business or will never visit again if the restrooms are less than satisfactory. Since restroom cleanliness is proven to be a large factor in the perception of a business, how do businesses detect and overcome uncleanly restrooms? Point-of-Sale survey kiosks may be the answer. Kiosks, much like the one pictured below, can quickly record and measure patrons’ reactions to their experiences. Usually seen when making a purchase at a store or online, some businesses are beginning to incorporate them into their restrooms. However, there are some positives and negatives to this idea. Positive: real time response to bathroom cleanliness so cleaning crews can act accordingly and keep the restroom presentable. Negative: Reliability of the survey. Will patrons be willing to touch the buttons of the kiosk if the threat of non-handwashers using the kiosk prior to them lingers? These are just a few pros and cons to this new use for POS surveys. Tell us what you think. Could your business or the businesses you patron benefit from such technology?

Happy Friday Everyone. Although old man winter has not returned to his cave here in Wisconsin, its time to start thinking warm thoughts, to bring warm weather. At my desk, i’m imagining 80 degree weather with blue skies and a fun day on the beach where I am rinsing the sand off of my feet. Just like the lady in the flashback Friday photo.
Maybe if we would all cross our fingers and wish for warm weather, then summer will come quicker! Doesn’t hurt to try!
Bradley’s Flashback Friday
Each Friday, a little piece of Bradley Corporation’s history will be showcased on our blog. Most of these flashback features will be fun, historic advertisements and catalog covers of Bradley products. Stay tuned each week for something different!
You’ve probably seen this picture before, maybe on some other website next to some ad with a doctor saying “I recommend Laramie to all my patients” or something like that. We definitely wouldn’t run this ad now, but back then I bet nobody thought it was strange at all. The same picture and tagline actually got used in a few different places, so it must have been fairly successful. You can see another example below.
We’ve been selling group shower fixtures since the 30’s, and the fact is it always makes sense to install fixtures that use space and water economically in larger facilities. The thing that changes is our sense of modesty. Maybe try out one of our showers that include privacy stalls?
