In this digital age, the use of technology plays an unprecedented role in solving issues like staff productivity or impressing clients.
According to a 2016 study by the Pew Research Center, “Smartphone Ownership and Internet Usage Continues to Climb in Emerging Economies,” an overwhelming majority of the world’s population claims to own some sort of mobile device, be it a smartphone or tablet. In some places of the world, smartphone ownership rates went up between 26 to 42 percent in three years.
This surge of tech ownership continues to feed new technologies into businesses, as well as homes, to simplify tasks and make life more enjoyable. Job scheduling technology can do exactly that for building service contractors (BSCs) and facility managers.
For decades, technology has gradually revolutionized the way managers in the cleaning industry stay connected to their employees and clients. Regardless of the extent of your technological background, task management has never been easier to organize, assign, and track.
There are many benefits to scheduling technology that can save BSCs and facility managers countless hours of work and worry. To name a few, clients can be kept in the loop about contract fulfillment responsibilities, costs may decrease, and cleaners can quickly know what work needs to be done.
Here are several more benefits and how they impact both BSCs and facility managers.
The End Result
BSCs and facility managers must ensure their cleaning efforts continually evolve to match technology trends in the outside world. Job scheduling technology is one effective way to unlock greater potential for increased employee productivity, client satisfaction, work accountability, and profit-earning capability.
