NEW YORK, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With COVID-19 still considered a global phenomenon, cleaning companies turn to Connecteam, a global leader for internal organizational apps, to keep their teams running safely, updated on guidelines and working protocols, and to get real-time service reports from the field.
"More than any other industry, the cleaning industry is operating under high risk at the forefront of combatting the COVID-19 pandemic," said Amir Nehemia, CEO of Connecteam. "The demand for cleaning services is rising worldwide, and cleaning managers are doing their best to adapt to the needs of the hour, while still maintaining their team's safety and high work standards. We see that on top of operational activity that is very common among cleaning companies, managers are putting more and more emphasis on communications and sharing of information in these troubled times. It's key to making sure their teams are up to date and are working in accordance with the strict guidelines required for this situation."
According to Nehemia, cleaning companies leverage organizational apps on four core fronts: scheduling and time tracking, communication, resource sharing, and live reporting. "With such a big responsibility on their shoulders, I am not surprised managers are now relying on employee apps to keep their team safe and run their business. After all, cleaners are always operating on-the-go, it just makes sense."
Scheduling and time tracking
According to Connecteam, scheduling capabilities and tracking time for payroll is the most used capability among cleaning companies globally. Whether those are contracted employees or hourly employees, assigning them cleaning services and tracking execution for payroll and billing is critical.
Communication and resources sharing
The threat of COVID-19 drives, even more, cleaning companies to continuously communicate with their cleaning teams: daily updates, leadership announcements, sharing new guidelines and SOPs, and other useful resources. Communication is becoming more popular among global cleaning companies, with the intention of reaching every single employee and keeping everyone up-to-date even on the go.
Operating under challenging conditions, cleaning companies turn to real-time reporting to keep the team safe and functioning. Two of the most common reports include 'Service summary checklists' which include key task summaries and images to ensure service was done in accordance to required standards and 'Daily health declaration' for cleaners to sign on a daily basis, declaring they are not showing any symptoms of illness nor that they have come into contact with a sick person.
