Ambius showcases solutions at IFMA world workplace 2014

Reading, Pa., Sept. 8, 2014Rentokil North America and Ambius, a division of Rentokil North America, will exhibit at International Facility Management Association’s (IFMA) World Workplace 2014 being held September 17-19 in New Orleans to showcase a host of solutions that improve lives indoors and out. To add fun to the event, the company will be hosting a mini Pestaurant that allows visitors to the booth during the expo to taste a variety of edible insects and “bite” back at bugs. Pestaurant is a mini “pop-up” restaurant that Rentokil sponsors regularly in multiple locations around the world and has created a buzz across North America with recent events held in Washington, DC and Reading, Pa.

Visitors to booth 701 will not only have the opportunity to take the Pestaurant Challenge to taste popular insects, such as roasted crickets and scorpion lollipops; they will more importantly have the chance to see brand-protecting and enhancing innovations. They can learn how to adopt Rentokil and Ambius solutions to improve health and safety of every facility with the latest in pest control products and services, and award-winning interior landscaping solutions.

As vacancy rates in the commercial sector continue to decline, projected by Forbes®, to be at 15% in 2014-15, facilities managers need access to the latest technologies and services that ensure a pest-free environment. And managers must continue to be vigilant with their vacant properties by routine inspection and a comprehensive pest control program that ensures infestations don’t keep prospective tenants away. Integrated Pest Management is at the forefront of what Rentokil offers to facilities managers around the globe.

Rentokil solutions to be showcased include, RADAR –Mouse Control, a mouse control solution that detects, captures and isolates mice efficiently and hygienically; PestNetOnline that offers customizable reports, online analysis tools, multi-site use ability and paperless solutions designed to meet the pest control analytics needs of the commercial customer, and Luminos 3 Plus Insect Light Traps, an insect light trap designed to deliver enhanced flying insect pest control for businesses.

According to a new report published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology – Applied, led by Universities of Cardiff, Exeter, Queensland and Groningen, employee productivity increases by 15% when plants are visible in office spaces, and improves workplace satisfaction up to 40%.

Ambius will demonstrate this with innovative interior solutions that include adding living artwork to walls with LivePicture®. At the cutting edge of green design this wall-mounted living plant system suites any décor with a space-saving touch of green. Premium scenting will be highlighted, showing how companies can take advantage of the most powerful of our five senses, smell, to create a customer experience that has tangible ROI benefits. Additionally, show attendees can see examples of Ambius’ beautifying plant life throughout the exhibition center and learn more about Interior Landscaping services.
