Retail case study—Stores
Stores are closing by the thousands, consumers are moving to online shopping, and nearly 2 million employees have lost their jobs. You can give them hope.
Statement of Problem
Retail establishments around the globe are all faced with the same challenge: how to safely reopen their stores (or stay open) while reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Presentation of Problem
Retailers have had to adapt their brick-and-mortar operations to comply with new health and safety regulations while meeting customer expectations. This includes mask wearing, ensuring physical distancing, controlling the number of employees and customers in stores, instituting contactless transactions, improving speed of service and introducing more self-service options.
As many as 25,000 retail stores in the United States are expected to permanently close this year as consumer demand for discretionary items stallsand more people shift to online shopping.
In June, 9 million retail employees were unemployed with about 1.1 million of those classified as temporary layoffs.
The workforce could remain smaller or shrink further as retailers discover they can’t make payroll with the same headcount as costs from wages to sanitizing stores rise or learn they can operate with a leaner staff.
Astronomical cost—Although costs can vary greatly depending on the size of the company, some large retailers have spent an exorbitant amount of money to keep their employees and customers safe. A food distributor has paid $20 million for testing and plexiglass. T-Mobile US Inc. has spent $50 million on extra cleaning and safety gear. Walmart Inc. and three other big retail chains have put more than $3 billion into higher salaries, benefits and other COVID-19 measures.
Overwhelming cleaning and disinfection procedures—The CDC has a rigorous cleaning and disinfection regimen in place for businesses that mandate increased cleaning; however, many cleaning products are not to be used around people. This will also mandate the hiring of additional staff and paying for deep cleaning after a confirmed case of COVID-19.
Daily health checks—Some states require employees to have daily temperature screenings. This will require the hiring of additional staff.
Harmful chemicals—The CDC has an approved list of over 450 chemicals that may be used to disinfect surfaces in your schools—most of which are harmful to humans.

Introducing the InXite 360
The InXite 360 is a fully autonomous, multifunctional robot that purifies air, eliminates germs and kills a host of bacteria and viruses. The robot creates a 99.9% sterile environment, giving retail business owners, employees and their customers the confidence they need to return to brick and mortar stores safely and in 100% compliance with state and federal guidelines.
Non-contact temperature screening
The robot can also screen and detect individuals with elevated temperatures—even in a crowd. And, because it uses non-contact thermal image technology, the chance of cross-infection is eliminated. By identifying who is at high risk, you will be able to take immediate action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within your store.
The InXite 360 dispenses our exclusive, antibacterial hand sanitizer with just a wave in front of the robot’s arm—perfect for both indoor and outdoor malls, freestanding stores and more.
The robot comes complete with a convenient drawer where users may disinfect cell phones, keys and more at the touch of a button.
When the robot’s battery begins to run low, it’ll automatically return to the charging station. After a few hours, the InXite 360 is ready to get back to work to disinfect and sanitize your entire establishment. It’s even safe to use around people!
Easy-to-use mobile app
With the InXite 360 mobile app, you’ll be able to remotely control your robot, view usage information, analyze data and more. You can even share this data directly with the State and health department in real time.
Save time and money
Our air sterilization robot not only keeps your employees and customers safe from harmful bacteria and viruses, it also saves you time and money. The InXite 360 works ’round the clock and doesn’t ask for a paycheck, benefits or vacation time. We even offer leasing options!
