‘Automation’ is a catchy, popular bit of jargon these days. It’s technically a term used for utilizing machinery without human assistance, but the idea of automatic control is useful in numerous control systems – operating equipment, processes in factories, switching on systems, stabilizing ships, etc. Automation is what has brought the idea of self-driving cars into our current timeline. The idea of automating anything has a negative connotation for some, seeing that many have been replaced by automated machinery in their occupation. However, the idea of automatic processes or options is more than intriguing for various other industries. Perhaps automation is especially exciting for those in the commercial cleaning industry because they can handle jobs, employees
“Automated Cleaning?! You can’t be serious…”

More Jobs, Less Time
Your customers are what keep you afloat, right? You do your job for them, literally! If you have long-time clients, you know that you’d do just about anything to make sure they’re satisfied – that’s why they remain loyal to you! But you can’t just rely on those clients. You have to bring in new business for a few reasons: to get your business out there, to make sure your employees are taken care of and to keep your bank account in the black. With scheduling software, you have numerous options for handling the majority of your business, including following up on leads, scheduling more jobs and keeping all the other areas organized. The best part about this type of software is that you can do all of that from any device, at any time, with just a few clicks. Additional jobs, better scheduling, organized contacts, inventory management and more…all taking less time than it ever has. Almost sounds too good to be true, but it’s reality!
Better Scheduling for All
Think about any time you’ve had to contact a utility or service company for an appointment, and they give you a 4 hour window in a week or two, and who knows if they’ll actually show up when they say they will. That’s insanely frustrating, isn’t it? The reality is that everyone’s time is valuable, so if you’re providing a service for them, you need to set yourself apart so that they don’t turn to someone else. This also affects your employees – if their schedule isn’t structured well, they’ll receive the brunt of the complaints in the field. In order to make everyone happy, you have to have better scheduling techniques and protocols in place.
With a software, you can automate particular services, train employees on specific tasks and access an intuitive calendar for any and all scheduling (work orders, inspections, inventory orders, etc.), all in one place. For example, if you perform a regularly scheduled cleaning service for a company with multiple locations, you can automate the process for each one, leaving no doubt about who should be where and when. If you ever wonder when a job was completed, it’s all there in the scheduling section of the software. If a client needs to change something about their services, they can send a request and you can update the automated information with a few simple changes. You’re no longer tied to your office or your computer – you can take your business with you wherever you go.
