We do one thing, and we do it well. We help managers in charge of cleaning manage, organize, analyze and optimize their operations via consultation and cleaning software. This is our mission.
Labor estimates are based on accepted standards developed by organizations such as ISSA and APPA. We’ve also developed our own sets of area types and their tasks over the course of years. We've incorporated CDC Ontario Hospital Cleaning best practice Recommendations, PIDAC, in the healthcare edition of software - and we stay busy keeping you up-to-date.
ISSA is the International Sanitary Supply Association www.issa.com. ISSA is well known and respected and we gratefully acknowledge their permission to use their copyrighted 560 Cleaning Times.
APPA www.appa.org was formerly named The Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers, whose members we've helped since 1993. APPA now uses just the name APPA since they’ve begun to represent other types of organizations. APPA has a range of resources available for facility managers, and we recommend you visit their site.
We’ve also expanded our capabilities beyond educational institutions, and now when you run the program for the first time you are asked what type of facility you clean or manage. Pick from Educational, Nursing Home, Hospital, or Office/Commercial and the program automatically loads the appropriate area types (groups of tasks) for you, as well as a sample building. Of course, all the other area types are available to you with a few simple mouse clicks, but we get you up and running quickly.
Our software is unique in that it not only calculates cleaning times for you, but also allows you to see the impact on time requirements for five (5) different levels of cleanliness, from Level 1 (Orderly Spotlessness) to Level 5 (Unkempt Neglect).
What Makes Us Unique
