In November 2019 we were awarded the contract for a large training facility in Hampshire. The client required a first-class cleaning service to the training facility and can see a footfall of up to 600 visitors per day during busy sessions.
When we took over the 7 day a week contract in 2019, the service was unfortunately not up to standard and complaints were being received from visitors. We immediately changed the timing of the cleaning to suit the needs of the business and introduced regular management visits and audits to raise the standards from day one.
The incumbent had retained the cleaning contract for the previous 17 years. Fortunately we were successful with our bid competing against 5 other companies including the outgoing company. We had been in discussions with the client for their business since 2016, our in-house sales team were amazing to keep chasing this lead until their perseverance finally paid off.
By training and motivating the team, we were able to improve the standards to the client’s satisfaction and continue to develop the contract and meet the standards to ensure exceptional audits scores each month.
