We refer to our flagship workloading software as the Core because we have several ancillary applications that integrate data into it such as inspection software and time study software.
iManage Informed Core Software is the premier labor estimation and analysis tool on the market today. Derived from our 26 years of experience with professional-grade workloading software, it allows one to build a rock-solid facility model to answer all questions about the cost of cleaning. Using it, managers make intelligent decisions based on rigorous math rather than guesswork – yet it’s easy to learn and use..
Speaking of the words "easy to use", we and most other software vendors have always faced a dilemma with this. On one hand, we need to provide many functions and screens to offer a powerful application and many of those screens are intended to make your job easier. Our solution is to pack a huge punch into a small number of screens and this you'll have to see to understand.
The other issue is that most of the work is in the initial setup, including migration of the space inventory and task setup. In simpler times, we used to recommend training to allow you to do it yourself. But, its simply not cost effective to learn the intricacies of that aspect of implementation since its a one-time deal. Now, we recommend you budget for this. We can do this work as can our distributors.
Once the software is very close to its final form, we recommend 2-3 days of training for most users depending on how large your facility, the complexity of operations and the number of users. Larger hospitals may need a bit more simply because not everyone can be free to train at the same time. Modern internet tools allow short session, remote training and ongoing support, so we can fit to your schedule.
If you have an in-house champion who really wants to be a power user, We can support that too. In that case, to learn everything can take a month or so, and the best way we can explain it is to think back to the first time you sat behind the wheel of a car and compare your fear and confusion to the now. If you're a driver, it seems easy, doesn't it? It's exactly the same way for our workloading software - it takes a good 20 hours to get to where you can get to point A to point B reasonably proficiently and, perhaps 40 hours of practice to get to distributor-consultant level of expertise.
