Building checklists for your team and ensuring they are completed for each shift creates a system for quality control that will set you apart.  Further, using inspections and sharing inspection results with your clients allow you to demonstrate how you and your team are delivering on the commitment you made when you won the contract.

With commercial cleaning software that fits your pocket, you know where your cleaners are no matter where you are. That’s why our customers love Swept.
