Transforming business…with help from SmartTask

CSM has improved visibility and control over its cleaning operation with the adoption of employee scheduling and workforce management software SmartTask. Following a period of rapid expansion, the company needed to replace existing paper-based systems so that it could better monitor and coordinate a team of 150 cleaning operatives that work across Scotland. This has enabled CSM to improve service delivery, enhance duty of care and support business development while reducing its administrative burden by up to 35 hours a month.

“We have expanded our business to service over 200 sites on behalf of a diverse range of customers, so we recognised that we had outgrown many of our existing manual systems,” said Martin Heneaghan, managing director of CSM Facilities Management. “We not only needed a software solution that would automate and streamline these processes but also help us differentiate our offering within what is a highly-competitive marketplace. SmartTask is helping us transform our operation by delivering on these demands and offering huge opportunities moving forward.”

Jack White, operations manager of CSM Facilities Management, continued: “By automating many of our manual, paper-based processes we have been able to massively streamline the management of our cleaning team, saving both time and money. It has also proven to be invaluable for internal reporting and customer communication because of its ability to electronically capture accurate operational data while minimising the risk of human error.”
