13 must have features for commercial cleaning software

Home > Cleaning Software News > 13 must have features for commercial cleaning software

So you have decided to invest some time and thought into commercial cleaning software. When you dig a little further  there seems to all types on offer.  Some are defiantly a universal program with a re-skin to suit a particular market though. A one size fits all package.
There’s nothing worse than seeing software with no real soul. That’s generic to fit as many applications as possible to maximise profit.
Has the software been designed for the industry by someone in the industry or by someone that cares more about computer programming.
With Cleansure cleaning business software you know that point is covered.
When I first joined the cleaning community there was little in the way of dedicated software to help. Sure if you was big enough to justify it you could get or employ your own developer. WiFi hadn’t been created yet so all those benefits  would have to wait for the future to come.
The first thing that springs to mind is ‘What features do I need’ ‘what will I use or what will my staff use effectively?’
The features of our cleaning business software  are listed below along with a brief explanation where needed.
