“We used 3 units of the Whiz on the 1st floor of the university hospital RWTH Aachen. On this corridor there is always a lot of passenger traffic. The Whiz masters the temporary obstacles without problems and still cleans about 500 square meters per hour. The low noise level does not interfere with the ongoing hospital operations – on the contrary, the staff and guests are always enthusiastic”

Horst Kahlen

Facility Manager at Uniklinik RWTH Aachen

“Whiz is a super user friendly co-bot, our employees are able to train and use the machine without any help. The cleaning results of the machine are surprising, the brush makes it possible to get much more dust out of the carpets than conventional cleaning.”

We tried Whiz for weeks and loved how easy it was to set up and run. The Whiz  journey is fully integrated into the life experience of our office occupants . We truly believe this will set a new standard in the vacuum industry!
