Informed Management Cleaning Software

Informed Management Cleaning Software is the premier database type labor estimation and analysis tool on the market today. Derived from our years of experience with professional-grade workloading software, it allows one to automatically build a facility model in about the time it takes to read this paragraph. Make intelligent decisions based on rigorous math rather than guesswork – yet it’s easy to learn and use..

Informed Management Cleaning Software

Speaking of the words "easy to use", we and most other software providers have always faced a dilemma with this. You see, 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. But, on the other hand, people need to learn all or most of them and that takes time.. So, we recommend 2-3 days of training with our janitorial software for most users and this begs the question, "why, if the software is so easy to use, do I need so much training?"

Well, 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 cleaning software - it takes a good 20 hours to get to where you can get to point A to point B reasonably proficiently and, perhaps 40-60 hours of practice to get fairly good at it.

Below is a brief description of the Informed Management Cleaning Software

Space Management: You can't do a whole lot with our software, or any software of this type for that matter, without a detailed space inventory which is a list of sites, buildings, floors, and rooms. The rooms must be further defined by at least three characteristics: Size, Use, and Flooring Material..

Area Types and Tasks: We take the use of the room and the flooring material to come up with a list of tasks performed in the room related to both cleaning and non-cleaning tasks. Each list of tasks is called an "area type". Tasks can be area based in terms of time, such as floor tasks so that the units are time per square foot, or item-based, such as cleaning a toilet and the units are time per item. Tasks can have frequencies on up to three routine work "shifts" or be set as project work with, typically, longer interval frequencies..

Labor Estimates: Once the two building blocks above are put together and set up, one can get time, labor and cost estimates and we provide many report options.

Work Assignments: A work assignment is a collection of rooms to be cleaned and we offer a very simple and quick way to create and modify work assignments, for both routine and project work. Recently, we added a function to add any additional work needed to an assignment for non-cleaning or any other type of task.

Inspections: Users can perform inspections via PDA or paper forms and store this quality measurement data in the software. We capture the date and time of the inspection as well as the work assignments (up to three routine work assignments may be associated with a room) and the personnel attached to the work assignments at the time of the inspections.

Supplies: We offer a supply library populated with a complete, typical distributor product line and users can add their own products. Chemical products can have coverage factors set (dilution ratio, area (or item) coverage and then be associated with tasks. Since the software knows the size of the rooms and cleaning frequency, chemical usage estimates can be performed.

Equipment: Our equipment library offers similar functionality to the supply library except that it can be used to analyze expected cleaning time using different machines.

Employee Management: A complete set of tools are included to maintain personnel records, training records and the like.
