Sterilis Solutions, a waste management company, partners with Xpanxion to help create change in waste management amidst COVID-19 pandemic.

Atlanta, GA - June 28, 2021 - Sterilis Solutions, headquartered in Boxborough, MA, manufactures an innovative IoT device that turns federal and state-regulated hazardous medical waste into harmless, sterile waste that is safely discarded as regular trash. It replaces the expensive and arduous task of hauling the waste to landfills or incinerators and addresses the process of medical waste disposal in a more climate-friendly, sustainable way.
 
The Sterilis Solutions System is currently used at hospitals, COVID-19 testing sites, ambulances, laboratories, airports, fire departments, and other locations across the country. Sterilis partnered with Xpanxion for an evaluation of its current AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud infrastructure and application development process and for recommendations to mature them. This was spurred by a pressing need to bring better quality applications to market faster. In light of the enormous volumes of COVID-19 pandemic waste left behind already, and as the country prepared for a monumental vaccine rollout, Sterilis needed to quickly ramp up the production and quality of its devices and their applications to meet the pressing need. After conducting a holistic evaluation, the Xpanxion team created a detailed plan to improve the current infrastructure, development process, and product and application quality.

As part of these improvements, Xpanxion recommended near real-time data analytics be conducted on the Sterilis Solutions. Because the devices are uniquely mobile and used at the point of care, the ability to perform ‘on-the-spot’ analytics to test and measure the temperature and pressure inside each device during operation is vital to ensure regulatory levels are met with each use. Automation for quality assurance and application testing was also a critical path to a faster time-to-market.

Xpanxion accomplished the solution by integrating and implementing advanced technologies into the client’s existing cloud infrastructure and introducing a new software development process technique. 

“Engaging with Xpanxion has allowed Sterilis Solutions to have additional resources available to accommodate our software needs as we continue to expand at a fast rate. With the ever changing technology in the IT world, finding the intellectual capital required is a challenge and the Xpanxion team is able to accommodate the programming needs for our solutions-oriented software platform. They have added additional bench strength to our organization that allows us to be quick to make decisions and move in a uniform direction.”

Xpanxion currently manages Sterilis’ now optimized AWS cloud infrastructure, provides ongoing support for the customer web portal and conducts all of the application and integration testing, quality assurance, and data analytics on the Sterilis Solutions.  Also, shortly after the engagement commenced, Sterilis was so impressed with the team's progress and capabilities, it handed over all of its application development and DevOps practices to Xpanxion.
