GREAT FIT FOR UBER Uber is among the latest firms to reap the benefits of Tork EasyCube.

And the software is a great fit for the multinational transport company which manages all its operations via mobile apps and websites.

Tork EasyCube uses sensors to ‘connect’ washroom facilities, enabling cleaners and facility managers to monitor washroom dispenser refill levels and visitor traffic via a smartphone or tablet.

The software has received glowing reports after being introduced to Uber’s Paris offices by cleaning services company La Providence.

“Tork EasyCube has greatly improved our teams’ working environment,” said Diane Sinald, La Providence Janitorial Account Manager. “It allows them to be more efficient in their work and it’s very rewarding for staff to use this kind of innovative software.

“And you can also collect a lot of valuable data - so everyone wins: our customers, their employees and our staff.”

Around 200 people are employed in Uber’s Paris office which runs the operations of 11 countries in Europe and the Middle East. La Providence cleaner Rousna Dumond described Tork EasyCube as “very visual and easy to use”. “With the


MENUS FOR STUDENTS Sodexo has teamed up with conservation organisation WWF-UK to encourage students at universities across the UK and Ireland to choose foods that are more sustainable and have a lower environmental impact.

Uber’s Regional RUN Manager for West and South Europe Pascale Porée said she was already using Tork EasyCube at her previous company. “It seemed natural to implement it at Uber too,” she said. “We care about our cleaning staff and want to make their work more meaningful. Tork EasyCube covers it all.”

which will then become part of the menus at all Sodexo-run university restaurants.

The street food dishes on offer at the pop-up Finer Diner features ingredients inspired by Knorr Professional and WWF-UK’s Future 50 Foods report; 50 plant- based foods that are healthy, tasty, accessible and have a high nutritional value but a low environmental impact.

The Finer Diner initiative follows the announcement last month on the roll out of recipes using the Future 50 Foods, which have been developed by Sodexo and Knorr Professional chefs and nutritionists, to more than 5,000 locations in Belgium, the United States, the UK and France,

including business and government offices, universities and hospitals.

David Mulcahy, Food Innovation Director at Sodexo, said: “We know that Generation Z are increasingly turning towards vegan and plant- based diets to improve their health and reduce their impact on the environment.

“The dishes that students will be able to sample at Finer Diner have been created to reflect the growing trend for street food and, of course, feature some of the Future 50 foods such as kale, spinach and lentils, all of which are really versatile and can be included in many dishes that people might usually associate with meat.” TOMORROW’S FM | 17
