How does PMUSA utilize innovation?
PMUSA provides the technology required for management to perform their job efficiently and effectively. CleanTelligent is the CMMS platform utilized by our Customer Excellence department and the PMUSA field management team. CleanTelligent supports work order processing as well as quality audit completion, including follow-up to issues identified during the audit process. CleanTelligent is able to integrate with customer’s existing work order systems via redirection of work order e-mails to the responsible field manager for completion. We can also provide access to CleanTelligent as a customer’s work order platform. Custom questions, surveys, and reporting allow for trending and continual process improvement.
PMUSA also utilizes an IVR timekeeping system that provides alerts to local field management if employees have not punched in for their shift. The PMUSA manager contacts the employee to determine their status. If the assigned employee will not arrive, the PMUSA manager works with their team of project and support employees to allocate appropriate resources to ensure service is provided. Our Code of Conduct is applied when employees do not show or are late for work with frequency. This may include formal counseling up to and including termination.
How does PMUSA measure quality?
PMUSA measures quality with CleanTelligent, the CMMS platform utilized by Customer Excellence and the PMUSA field management team. CleanTelligent supports work order processing as well as quality audit completion, including follow-up to issues identified during the audit process. CleanTelligent is able to integrate with customer’s existing work order systems via redirection of work order e-mails to the responsible field manager for completion. We can also provide access to CleanTelligent as a customer’s work order platform. Custom questions, surveys, and reporting allow for trending and process improvement over time. This is another example of how we are relying on the latest technology to deliver products and services tailored to exceed our client’s expectations.
How do you handle conflict resolution for delayed or missed services?
We have both proactive and reactive systems to ensure our employees arrive on the job site and begin performing in a timely fashion. Supervisors work closely with employees to ensure they will be at the job site, but also have contingency plans and support employees available to cover in the event of an employee’s absenteeism. In addition, our timekeeping system will notify a supervisor and regional manager 15 minutes after the start of the shift if fewer employees than required are on site. They are also able to monitor where the employees are working in real-time at any time.
