Janitorial companies have long used the clipboard and pen to record inspections. This process is a familiar method to any industry but, the days of performing routine inspections with the old clipboard and pen are numbered. Hand-held devices like the iPhone have reduced the need to collect inspection data by pen. Tapping down notes on your iPhone is now the norm for professional janitorial service companies using this new app.
The process is now simplified thanks to, Janitor Jones Inspector, an app written by Halifax creative Wayne Boutilier. The app is designed for janitorial contractors, building managers, supervisors or just about anyone who needs to report on the cleaning services. Contractors can now streamline the process of inspecting/reporting and at the same time improve communication with clients and cleaning staff. The new app greatly enhances the quality of communication with staff and clients with email reports in pdf format or SMS. Inspectors can reduce the time and energy used to record and report deficiencies with the tap of a button and send the report from the device.
Building maintenance managers who have in-house cleaning staff at hospitals, schools, universities, colleges, hotels or office towers can take advantage of this new app using the reporting features to notify staff by text or email. It also can be utilized by building managers as a reporting system that keep tabs on the hired cleaning contractor’s services for large buildings.
The app’s goal is to reduce paper waste, streamline the inspection process and meet the needs of green savvy cleaning contractors or facility managers. Available now on the iTunes App Store for $49.99, Janitor Jones Inspector is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 4.2 or later.
