Along with our clients, Rachio and BK Ultrasound, Bresslergroup is pleased to announce we’ve been selected to receive not one but two (!) 2017 dmi:Design Value Awards from the Design Management Institute (DMI).
According to DMI, the awards “honor teams that have delivered significant value through design or design management practices. The value can be expressed as positive financial gain, value to the user/customer, advances in process, improvements in organizational capability or culture, and positive impact on social issues/environmental sustainability.”
The awards are in recognition of the significant value delivered via these two products:
Bk Ultrasound Sonic Window improves patient outcomes by enabling clinicians to quickly and easily achieve vascular access at ‘first stick.’ It increases the success rate of IV placements in difficult patients by fifty to eighty percent, which translates to a savings in time and materials of up to $1,250 for every hundred IV starts. Patient benefits include less discomfort from multiple sticks, especially for difficult-to-stick patients; reduction of unnecessary central line infections; reduced risk of complications; and faster treatment and quicker advancement of the patient through the hospital system.

Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller, Generation 2 is the first smart sprinkler with direct integration with Amazon Echo and Alexa, which allows users to implement weather delay and zone control commands simply by using their voice. Its ease of use empowers consumers to save up to fifty percent off their monthly water bill while knowing they are helping to conserve one of the planet’s greatest resources. Since it was launched in 2013, the system has saved 4.5 billion gallons of water (and counting). The product is manufactured totally by U.S. contractors, which creates local jobs and reduces shipping and waste. Read about Bresslergroup’s work on Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller, Generation 2.
