University of Rochester Debuts Customized Carts

Cart customized with University of Rochester logo

In a letter to fellow members of the Facilities Operations’ directorial staff at the University of Rochester’s School of Medicine & Dentistry:

SMD Environmental Services is proud to announce the release of their first round of new Geerpres Service Technician Carts.  Working directly with Geerpres, we were able to create a custom cart to fully meet the requirements of modern Environmental Services teams.  The new custom carts are direct replacements for their traditional Rubbermaid carts issued 10+ years ago.

Key features of the new carts include:

    • Built to specific UR-SMD Environmental Services requirements and specifications
    • Durable powder-coated finish, in university colors, for ease of cleaning/sanitizing
    • Hospital-quiet, sealed bearing, low-drag casters for improved patient/customer satisfaction and reduced worker fatigue
    • Proudly displayed official University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry logos; approved by UR Marketing and Graphics Division
    • Direct investment in the employee; improves worker morale and reestablishes the importance of their critical roles in healthcare
    • 33% smaller footprint and retractable front tray allows for ease of storage in closets with limited space; minimizes/eliminates abandoned carts in corridors
    • Integrated and lockable Virtual Manager tablet dashboard
    • 40% more secured storage for chemicals and supplies for increased productivity; minimizes/eliminates multiple trips to closets and supply rooms throughout workday
    • Specific storage shelf dimensions restrict quart-sized product use to “pull-top” only; reduces the chance of aerosolization of cleaning chemicals and disinfectants for improved worker safety and improved indoor air quality
  • Made in USA; makes warranty, service, and parts readily accessible

 Attached are a few photos for reference.
