How productive is your cleaning company in a day? Many business owners can’t answer this question off the top of their heads. Despite productivity being a key indicator in a successful business, it can be difficult to measure, especially without the right tools.
To increase productivity in your business, you need to first know where you stand. That’s where having a software solution like MaidEasy comes into play. Made by cleaning company owners for cleaning companies, MaidEasy knows exactly what you need to measure your productivity and grow your business.
Understanding Your Cleaning Company’s Productivity
The two main aspects of measuring the productivity of your company are your staff and your existing procedures. In addition, your clients also come into play.
To start off, you need to be sure your cleaning staff has the tools they need for success. This means that they have both quality cleaning products and proper training. Investing in quality cleaning products can make a significant difference in the time taken to complete a cleaning job as well as your employee’s attitude using them. Additionally, they need the proper training so that they know how to use the resources available to them. With this as a baseline, your employees will result in a faster cleaning process that doesn’t compromise the quality of the work.
Secondly, and incredibly important, is setting goals for both the business and your staff. Not only that but measuring performance as well. Goals become worthless if not being properly measured. On your own, measuring performance can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Fortunately, with MaidEasy Software, we make it easy!
Here are a few ways we help companies set goals and measure productivity:
Setting Goals and Measuring Productivity with MaidEasy
First, you need to set goals that are measurable in terms of speed and quality. Think of a long-term, company-wide goal and then set milestone goals for individual staff members to help fulfill. These are also known as Key Performance Indicators or KPIs, which provide a baseline for assessing performance or growth in a variety of areas.
Some examples of KPIs in the cleaning industry include cleaner attendance, time on site, and quality of work. By using MaidEasy Software, you make it easy to measure KPIs because this data is all stored in our software.
- Employees can clock in and out, on site, using our mobile app, making it easy to know who showed up on time as well as how long each job takes.
- Send reminders via text, email, or call to clients to guarantee cleaning times and reduce time wasted for your employees on no-show cleanings.
- Store job details for individual clients so your cleaners know the specific requests made by the client—improving quality of work and keeping your clientele happy.
- Run reports. MaidEasy’s ability to run reports is easily one of the most beneficial tools when measuring productivity. We can run reports on how profitable every 5 minutes of the day is, which is helpful in knowing both how productive your employees are as well as how profitable your clients are.
To get the most out of MaidEasy and its tools, it’s important to note that you need to use it! Entering in client details, creating invoices, paying your employees are all ways you can use our software. And by doing so, we can easily generate reports for your company on profitability, volume, gross profit, lead summary, and more.
