Delivering custom programs tailored to your unique industry
Each industry presents its own unique challenges. Pike Systems’ staff members are knowledgeable in each of these industries and can assist you in facing these challenges head-on
At Pike Systems, our mission is to provide our clients with the knowledge, experience, and support they need to develop and implement programs to manage any variables that may arise within their custodial operation.
A site-survey is the foundation of a Pike Systems program and the first step in the development of a custom program. The goals of the site survey are:
- To assist facility management in better understanding their current maintenance operation
- To use data collected as a basis for program recommendations to reduce total maintenance costs and improve overall cleaning levels
- To link product costs and labor costs to your total budget to show the impact of standardized procedures on your operation
- To evaluate critical areas within your facility to reduce your risk exposure and associated budget spikes
After the completion of the site-survey, an action plan is developed and tailored to fit the specific needs of your facility. The action plan includes implementation timelines, execution strategies, and expected results. Once the process implementation begins, training is provided by a Pike Systems certified trainer. Our results-focused training includes continuous training for all levels of the custodial department in the form of written, verbal, and hands-on instruction.
“If I buff my halls twice a week vs. once a week, how much will I save in labor and chemical and how will this impact the appearance of my facility?” “If I buy a scrubber for the hallway, what is my breakeven point?” These decisions are easier to make when the data is readily available.
Pike Systems, Inc. recognizes that management is increasingly required to quantify custodial operations, meet budget requirements; lower operating costs, and justify labor requirements. Facilities are being challenged with this while continuing to maintain quality in their departments.
By reducing the number of chemicals used within your facility and by utilizing the most practical equipment available, the most efficient and cost-effective program can be established.
Effective decisions require accurate data on each facility. The actual physical environment: square feet, item quantity, and surface materials all have an impact on the cleaning budget. This data is essential for support staff, balanced workloads, and equipment and chemical usage analysis.
Pike Systems can aid in the development of written cleaning procedures and in staffing your facility in the most cost-effective manner. Standardization of products and procedures will improve the quality and control the costs associated with labor and supplies.
