Developments to support franchisees Technology and innovation have been the drivers that underpin Maid2Clean’s support for its franchisees. Put simply by giving them the best business tools and using clever ways to engage with the brand’s army of cleaners franchisees have an agile business model that stays competitive and attracts clients. As part of its strategy Maid2Clean has developed an array of technology-led online support tools to cushion its 108 franchisees across the UK. The tools cover everything from helping to recruit quality cleaners to forums to share best practice and a ‘world first’ domestic cleaning training programme.
All the support tools are web-based to further automate tasks and keep overheads low. The key tools include
Nationwide-Cleaners.com This is one of the most sophisticated domestic cleaning recruitment portals on the net and helps franchisees in their search for quality vetted cleaners. Franchisees are able to login and post as many job vacancies as they wish in order to match the ever increasing demand for quality cleaners in the Franchise areas. This has proved to be a more affective process than advertising on various job websites, and has helped Franchisees to recruit thousands of cleaners.
MaidAware Maid2Clean wants its cleaners to be proud to work under the brand and has created an online forum called MaidAware where they can keep in contact with each other and franchisees to share best practice. This is part of a strategy to further ‘professionalise’ the domestic cleaning sector and to develop the Maid2Clean brand as the cleaning agency work provider of choice for domestic cleaners.
CICO CICO stands for ‘check in check out’ and is another unique branding element of the Maid2Clean portfolio – giving an automatic timestamp for clients to show when a cleaner starts and finishes her clean. When a cleaner arrives at the premises she makes a free phone call from the client’s land line which routes through the internet and enables the client’s records to be _me-stamped with a call. With CICO Maid2Clean clients have the peace of mind to know that their cleaner has completed the work and attended the full hours that they are being paid for.
