HOUSTON MEDTECH COMPANY LAUNCHES SANITIZATION AND DIGITAL MARKETING PROGRAM
Forward Science, A Local Houston Medtech Company, Releases Hand Sanitizing Stations With Digital Advertising Capabilities.
(Houston, TX) (June 2020) Forward Science, a Houston based and locally operated MedTech company, is launching The FS Hand Stand™ - a hand sanitizing station with an attached digital advertising screen. The Forward Science team designed The FS Hand Stand to allow businesses to Advertise While You Sanitize™, allowing businesses to increase safety with medical-grade hand sanitizer while increasing revenue through advertising products and services of their choice. COVID-19 has forced industries across the globe to re-structure their sanitization processes and get creative with their business practices, and The FS Hand Stand program allows them to do just that.
In response to the events surrounding COVID-19, the Forward Science team first pivoted their production from oral healthcare products to launch hand sanitizer to meet the needs of healthcare partners; as well as, the Houston community. After the successful launch of hand sanitizer, the FS team continued to listen to the needs of their partners and created a surface disinfectant, closely followed by a line of PPE. Creating innovative products and quality resources for the healthcare space has been the top priority at Forward Science since their inception in 2012 and The FS Hand Stand is a direct reflection of that goal. This sanitization station program allows businesses to conveniently receive hand sanitizer but also gives them the opportunity to create a new revenue stream.
“These unprecedented times have forced everyone, across all industries, to work harder and smarter, and to even get a bit creative,” said Robert Whitman, CEO of Forward Science. "With industries reopening to new regulations on sanitizer, Forward Science saw an opportunity to provide necessary equipment as well as a unique marketing opportunity for businesses looking to be successful in the coming months. During the process of hand sanitizing, it is one of the rare opportunities in the day where you will not see a cell phone in someone’s hand... and we wanted to help our partners take advantage of that.”
Forward Science partnered with Gulf Coast Solutions, a Houston based software company focusing on business-driven technology, for the software integration to be ideal for each customer’s marketing needs. Gulf Coast Solutions has decades of experience with patient-facing integration for optimal marketing exposure, and The FS Hand Stand 1.0 is just the beginning of a partnership with Forward Science. “We believed in The FS Hand Stand so much, it was love at first sight,” shares Cody Caillet, CEO of Gulf Coast Solutions. “Forward Science is at the top of the healthcare world and we believe we are the top of the IT world, so it was a perfect fit for us to partner on this unique product. We are excited for what the future has in a partnership together for The FS Hand Stands to come…”
Forward Science’s Sanitize For Life Program™ is a complete program that allow customers to choose from quarterly or monthly shipments of FS Hand Sanitizer, guaranteeing you will have hand sanitizer at all times. “The Sanitize for Life Program™ combines two essential needs: sanitization and marketing,” says Forward Science’s Director of Strategic Sales, Jessica Holscher. “This product allows businesses to keep their customers and employees safe while also supplementing their income during uncertain times. Forward Science has always presented cost-effective solutions for our partners and this program is just another example of that mission.”
The FS Hand Stand provides protection and profit, whether your goal is to keep employees safe while implementing your new infection control policies or advertising to customers who are sanitizing.
