When searching for a software solution to support and deliver their mission statement and working ethics, Claire Locker, the company’s General Manager said “Over the years in this industry demand for technology based information and quick response was apparent especially at tender stage, with all new and existing clients. To compete with larger companies, Interclean realised we had to adopt new software and technology into the business to meet the many requirements of our current and future customers.”
When asked why they selected CleanLink’s Site Master software solution early in 2015, Claire commented: “After looking at many software solutions, Cleanlink was the one that suited our needs best. After trialling Site Master for 3 months, we found; It was easy to incorporate into our everyday business. How easily it could be used on site by our employees. How easy it was to use in the office by our admin staff. Training was very straightforward and clear to understand. Any queries or issues we have come across with the system have always been addressed by Cleanlink staff and a solution found that best suits our company’s needs within a quick response period.” Interclean recently incorporated the use of the CleanLink Portal service to further enhance their business processes.
Claire stated that the key benefits that the use of CleanLink’s Site Master and Portal Services have given to Interclean’s’ clients and staff are: “Faster communication of site standards\problems and achievements to head office. More accurate KPI reports and outcomes. An advantage on all tender documentation and bids. A closer working relationship with all clients and staff. An advanced and quick earch system for all clients, with health & safety documentation and audits. Quality plays a major part of each and every contract and we wanted to supply to our clients an immediate response for the cleans and what standard they are at. Any faults on sites can be reported immediately and pictures taken and uploaded to the Portal in real time .Through the Site Master and Portal we can now achieve this. The reports that our clients can see helps establish and continue our KPI figures and due to Cleanlink software our KPI figures for a major client stands at 100% in the month of November 2015”
