Question

I am in the market for software that can be used for staffing/work loading, and costing. What are your recommendations?


Answer

Answer #1:
One of our members offers Cleaning Management Software that includes APPA times, ISSA times, and five levels of cleaning. It is worth a look, and a free 60-day trial is available from the website: www.nationalproclean.com.
Many accounting programs offer job costing. You already may be using Quickbooks or something similar. Look to see if it is in there.

Answer #2:
ISSA, the industry’s trade association, also provides an easy to use product, (www.info-clean.com), that will quickly help you determine if you have the correct staffing levels.
