The collaboration will scale SBC’s subscription smart building offerings starting in New York City, Austin and Miami, allowing clients to gain insights from data integration, confirmed cleans, and near-time analytics while reaping the benefits of community health and safety.

SBC Global Holdings Inc. (SBC), an autonomous robotics and technology services company in the commercial real estate, educational and related sectors, has partnered with Softbank Robotics America (SBRA), a leading cobotics and automation company, to help enable safer, cleaner, and healthier environments for people to confidently reoccupy.

The partnership allows SBC to leverage SBRA’s expertise in robotic automation solutions to further the mission of its technology services and Global Data Network: to make buildings smarter through AI technology.

“The New York City market leads the way in its requirement to return to business because so much of the city is economically interdependent — from the many corporate office buildings to hotels, restaurants, theaters, schools, and gyms”, according to Robert Shiver, CEO, and Chairman of SBC Global Holdings.

These new solutions will be offered through SBC’s product and subscription service models to deliver added value to clients by providing industry-leading customer support and premium services that ensure a long-term, collaborative relationship focused on leadership in commercial and related space innovation.

Supporting SBC’s goal to become a leader in providing autonomous robotic technology solutions in the Americas, it has established New York City, Austin, Texas, and Miami as its initial services footprint.

“Because these places rely on consumer, tourist, and, most importantly, employee confidence there is a real and growing need for powerful, reliable, efficient, and yet, cost-effective disinfectant solutions for public spaces — to guarantee the removal of infectious diseases like COVID-19 and its variants. We believe autonomous robotics are critical to helping us ensure communities like New York City get back to healthy, safe, and more efficient environments including offices, schools, and restaurants.”

“Our Whiz solution has proven effective in helping facilitate healthier and safer environments by integrating with workplace innovation leaders, enabling teams to be more efficient and effective”, said Brady Watkins, EVP and General Manager of SoftBank Robotics America. “We are excited to partner with SBC as together we will enable a broader reach of our solutions, including Whiz, to continue improving people’s confidence in returning to physical spaces.”
