Do you know how long it takes to do your jobs? As the business owner, your first job is to know how long it takes to do any particular job. The janitorial industry is a time/motion line of work; meaning the work to be done can be measured in a specific time. For instance, it takes a specified length of time to vacuum a specified area of carpet.
Some business owners actually do the jobs initially to determine how long it takes. Of course there are other factors that can make those numbers vary, but for the most part, there are good efficiency numbers that have been derived from studies of labor and materials in the cleaning business. So once you land the job you need a way to make sure the employees you put on that job actually put in the time it takes to do the job right. A telephone timekeeping system that allows you to track jobs as well as employees can be useful for these job costing numbers. Your employees clock into a job and you can see the amount of time spent on that job each month. It is a great way to determine if your job costing numbers were right.
Keep track of employees with fewer managers using the Chronotek Employee Management system. You can grow your business and keep management costs down too. Features that allow you to do more with less are the no-show alerts sent when employees do not show up to scheduled jobs, integrated voicemail where employees must listen to the message before the next clock in or out, and Mobile Chronotek that allows you to view clock in and out data 24/7 from even a cell phone.
Besides the savings you see for paying for actual time worked, you will see the benefits of overtime control, reduced payroll administration, and management assistance. Look at the testimonials – we have clients who even track students. In these times when salaries are still the largest expense it makes sense to use a timekeeping system that can help you do more.
You get the call the next day from your customer. Their security alarms went off last night. Your customer thinks your employees set it off. Do you have the proof you need when you say your employees were already gone by that time? If not, you may have to pay for the police run that was made to check the alarm status at your customer’s site. Has this happened to you? This could get costly$$$. When you use telephone timekeeping you know exactly when your employees clock in and when they clock out. You have the proof! (And unless those employees work at a bank and are planning the bank heist, you know they left the premises when they clocked out. Who sticks around a work site when they are not getting paid?) This does not have to happen to you again!
