Pro-Link Introduces New Online Cleaning Specifications Sheet
Canton, MA - June 2, 2010 - Pro-Link, Inc., a jansan marketing and buying group based in Canton, MA, introduces a new tool to help building service contractors (BSCs) provide more accurate bids while ensuring all cleaning needs of a facility are addressed.
The new Cleaning Specifications is available for BSCs from Pro-Link distributor-members.
According to Rich Parillo, a former BSC, long-time veteran of the professional cleaning industry, and Pro-Link’s BSC specialist, the new Cleaning Specifications sheet is user-friendly – grouping cleaning tasks by service area such as common areas, offices or restrooms. It helps BSCs identify all of the cleaning needs, requirements, and frequencies for current customers and prospects.
The specifications program lists scores of cleaning duties—from mopping floors and vacuuming to dusting—and allows users to determine task frequencies, such as quarterly, annually, daily, weekly, and monthly, based on the needs of the client or facility.
“The [cleaning] specifications sheet is the foundation for bidding and scheduling [cleaning] jobs,” says Parillo. “A building contractor cannot build a building without the architect’s plans. Similarly, a cleaning contractor really cannot clean a facility properly without the cleaning specifications clearly outlined.”
The Cleaning Specifications sheet is one of several Pro-Link resource tools that specifically address the needs of BSCs.
Other examples of the company’s programs include information on Green cleaning, business management and marketing tools, as well as the BSC Advisor, which includes information on sales, proposal writing, strategies for account retention, and more.
“Pro-Link understands the challenges and issues faced by many building service contractors,” says Parillo. “Working with its distributor-members, we have actively tried to help BSCs operate their businesses more effectively and profitably.”
