About Zurface Group

Zurface Group revolutionises the way in which people clean their spaces. We create a new understanding of what makes a healthy indoor environment. It sounds like an ambitious project. And it is. For classrooms, office environments, bedrooms, and several other spaces need better cleaning of critical contact surfaces.

 

Since 2012, Zurface Group has specialised in designing, developing, and producing digital solutions to minimise the spread of infection and improve the indoor climate. Our solutions are developed in close collaboration with our users, and leading experts.

 

Zurface Group has created a line of patents introducing new, user involving nudging technologies. The documented effect by targeted activation of citizens, with digital nudging, is multilateral. Partly, the effort that goes into preventing infections from spreading is reduced when many people take part, and partly, the costs for redundant use of facility management (conventional cleaning) are reduced. Moreover, our collection and analyses of sensor data allow for building administrators to support the most optimal indoor climate without having to undertake new, extravagant capital investments.

 

To accommodate the global demand, we designed our company infrastructure and technological architecture capable of hyper-scaling. This includes agile order production, efficient onboarding of new clients, and delivering wet wipes based on current needs. zurface® is built on the Microsoft Azure platform where AI technology is accelerating the scope of new solutions for customers at the same time.

 

Zurface Group is the only global supplier of a digital solution supporting both improvements of indoor climate and reducing the spread of infection from contact surfaces.
