- Using our latest CleanGuru App, cleaners can know their own schedule, complete tickets assigned to them and use our timekeeping feature to record their sign in and out times.

You asked for it – now, you’ve got it!
That’s right – ready-to-use marketing, you can easily and instantly add to your janitorial bid proposals to educate and impress prospects about what sets your cleaning business apart from competitors.

Leverage the power of GPS technology in our timekeeping app to help monitor your cleaning operation; while always being able to choose which alerts you want active, and which you don’t. Plus, your managers can be notified of alerts even when their CleanGuru app is closed.
Put the power of the ‘alert and notification’ feature to work for you; doing the important monitoring tasks you simply can’t do without this useful GPS technology.
Finally, instant employee messaging done right.
What do we mean?
Well, some software companies are set up for messages to be sent to all employees in a building, which might seem like a good idea.
But, have you ever noticed the response to ‘group’ texts? If your experience is anything like ours, it’s not what it’s cracked up to be.
You know, different people looking at the same text see things – differently. Ugh.
Some understand it the way the sender intended. But, some, maybe many others misunderstand it, ‘reading into’ the group message ideas that may make them everything from confused – to furious!
Group texts, like ones sent to all cleaners and managers in a building – may end up creating many more problems than they solve.
Plus, there’s the whole issue of disgruntled people taking a ‘quick pic’ of the text message appearing on their screen.
That’s why we created a better approach to employee message, one that lets you accomplish your goal, without creating misunderstanding and upset cleaners.
Our instant employee message lets you, the cleaning business owner, decide who will be allowed to text employee questions, reminders or instructions; ones not seen by everyone in the building, but rather only the person intended.
The cleaner can then easily acknowledge the received the message, by sending a reply text to confirm what steps they will take to respond or follow up with additional questions to make sure they are clear about what needs to be done.
The result, employee messaging – done better.
Cleaners who have a convenient way to report problems can help supervisors stay informed, even correct potential problems – earlier and easier.
Using the user-friendly CleanGuru app, with one click cleaners can text or call the supervisor in charge.
Cleaning business owners can quickly set up who they want to be contacted. Plus, changing the supervisor to be contacted can be easily changed from day to day or shift to shift.
Everything from reporting a leaky pipe or burned out light to a carpet or tile floor needing additional maintenance, the CleanGuru Contact Supervisor feature keeps your management team informed, so they can avoid being caught off guard by an issue.
Our CRM, is a virtual one-stop-shop for securely storing, organizing and viewing contact info, notes, and appointments, as well as, important linked documents including bids, work tickets, invoices, schedules and timesheets for cleaning businesses.
As you grow, securely organizing and saving important prospect and customer info is essential.
A big part of winning janitorial contracts is having easy access to review key building data when you need it. Being able to review your latest notes from recent conversations or meetings with your current client can quickly get you up-to-date as you prepare for your next scheduled customer service visit. Janitorial proposals can be customized based on things you learn and record in your CRM.
Have an ‘active prospect’ who just signed an office cleaning contract? You can easily change their status to ‘active customer’. Or, maybe there’s a prospect you want to stop pursuing temporarily, but you don’t want to lose their information.
No problem; simply change their status to ‘inactive’, and everything will still be there for when you’re ready to add them back to the pool of cleaning prospects you’re actively marketing to.
Our CRM also holds other kinds of useful notes and details, such as billing information, security access codes and any other data you may want to keep on file for future reference.
INCREDIBLE is a strong word.
But, we really do believe that’s what you’ll be thinking and saying about the CleanGuru mobile app from the very first time you give it a try.

Next, when using CleanQC on the CleanGuru mobile app you’ll be able to quickly and easily inspect your buildings as part of an effective quality control plan.
Just create your inspections from one of your bids or a building type (office, medical, school, manufacturing etc) if you prefer – and you’ll be up and running.
That’s right, areas, items to check and default ratings come up automatically, so all you need to do is change the rating for any cleaning issue you find.
When you’re done, with a click you’ll be able to create a convenient and understandable work ticket, showing just the cleaning issues, to easily review with your cleaners.

Did your prospect get the bid you sent?
Did your customer open the invoice you emailed them?
Did your cleaner get the work tickets they need for that night?
Did the property manager get the monthly inspection they requested?
We know how much it matters.
These are the important documents you email to land new jobs, keep employees informed, follow up with current customers – and get paid.
That’s why we designed a powerful feature to answer the questions you have when sending these proposals, invoices, inspections and tickets.
We call it Email Verification.
It tracks the progress of the documents you send and then keeps you informed – letting you know the current status of the process.
Plus, it’s reported using easy to understand color codes you’ll quickly be able to identify, so you can quickly know if what you sent is actually getting to the person you sent it to – and just as importantly, if ‘they’ve opened it’.
The answers from our Email Verification feature can replace ‘confusion and worry’ with ‘answers and confidence’.
Yellow indicates the email was sent and is waiting for a delivery response
Blue indicates the email was received by the server
Green means the email was opened by the recipient
Red indicates the email was refused; bounced, blocked or marked spam
Plus, simply click on the email verification line and you’ll be able to see additional supporting details as well as view a PDF of the document you sent.
