PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 11, 2019 – Tork, an Essity brand and the leading global brand in workplace hygiene, is entering the software industry by releasing one of the market’s most advanced cleaning management software—Digital Cleaning Plans. The cleaning management software includes functions for planning, communication, administration and follow-up and can be used by both mid-size and small-scale cleaning companies. With Digital Cleaning Plans, cleaning companies are offered the opportunity to experience a more efficient way of working, which simplifies cleaners’ tasks.
“We stepped into the software industry as we saw the need for an easily available digital cleaning solution. With Tork Digital Cleaning Plans, we give management the tools they need to take control of their operations and to use their time and resources in smarter ways,” said Anna Kὄnigson Koopmans, Marketing Director Commercial and Public Interest at Essity.
For managers, there are several advantages with the new software, including the ability to schedule and delegate tasks. The software also enables easy reporting for accurate follow-up to clients. The result is better fulfillment of service level agreements and satisfied clientele.
Improved staff communications
With clear, always-available instructions and guidance within the software, Tork Digital Cleaning Plans enables improved communications among cleaners and between cleaning staff and management. With the software, cleaning staff can quickly and easily troubleshoot issues and report problems to management by communicating and uploading images directly into the program.
Digital Cleaning Plans also simplifies the introduction of new staff and handovers between staff members during shift changes.
“We have been eager to create a service specifically for cleaning staff who are integral to the results that are delivered to venue clients and visitors. By helping their daily work operate more efficiently, we’ll not only be able to boost results, but also mitigate any cleaning issues before they arise,” said Kὄnigson Koopmans.
Digital Cleaning Plans is the first step in digitizing cleaning operations, and even more value can be achieved when using them in conjunction with data-driven cleaning services from Tork, such as Tork EasyCube, a network of sensor-equipped dispensers that alert facility management of exactly when and where cleaning needs occur.
