At the Manchester show Templa will be showcasing various new features of its management software, each representing a hands-on solution to a real challenge encountered by cleaning contractors.
Special Works Teams Management helps contractors who manage a significant volume of planned periodic work or ad hoc client requests using their own internal van fleet and specialist operatives. Resource allocation is fully optimised using a calendar-based scheduling tool which sends each job to an operative’s mobile device at the start of each working period. The functionality includes integrated employee pay and automated client billing.
Standard 2-Way T&A Integration provides single point of data entry with real-time data exchange from a full range of on-site hardware technologies covering biometric and one-time-password devices, through to a mobile app or SIM and client phones.
Roster Management provides field managers with a drag and drop, calendar-based resource planning tool. It allows the planning of cover quickly and easily, with any changes made to an employee’s schedule automatically updating all affected timesheets – current and future.
Advanced Forms enables the design of bespoke electronic forms, e.g. employee new starter forms, that can be completed on a field manager’s mobile device before automatically synchronising with the central database, entering workflow for approval or action, and automating the creation of new records.
Advanced Workbills improves profit reporting of periodic or special works by making provision for accrued revenues and costs, as well as accurately allocating materials usage on jobs where they are used. This results in precise budget versus actual spend comparison and a discrete P&L report for each job.
Franchise Network Support helps centralised cleaning franchisors manage their distributed franchisees’ access to relevant elements of the software. It takes care of data security and discrete processing, yet offers overarching franchisor management and reporting.
