mCloud's AssetCare is deployed via IoT thermostats and air quality sensors to adaptively ventilate and manage airflow, while SecureAire provides an air filtration system, which is used today in over 60 hospitals.
Put simply, SecureAire's system drives airborne contaminants to an electrostatic field that oxidizes and kills dangerous pathogens and viruses such as coronavirus (COVID-19).
"The key to bringing customers back and returning to profitability will come from assuring them these establishments are safe," Dr Barry Po, mCloud's president at Connected Solutions and chief marketing officer said in a statement.
"This combined AssetCare solution with SecureAire will enable business owners to confidently reassure customers, employees, and local health authorities they have taken decisive action to minimize the risk of infection in their businesses," he added.
"We have set up our teams to partner and target the millions of restaurant and retail spaces re-opening their doors in the coming weeks."
mCloud noted it had also released a 10-step 'readiness checklist' to help business owners evaluate the status of their indoor air quality, among other precautions, to ensure establishments are safe.
Via mCloud's AI-powered AssetCare platform, the company offers management solutions for three distinct segments: smart facilities, power generation, and process industries including oil and gas.
IoT sensors bring data from connected assets into the cloud, where AI and analytics are applied to maximize their performance.
mCloud Technologies shares gained 4.6% to C$4.29 in Toronto.
