Using Flexible Technology to Manage Crisis in the Security and Janitorial Industry – Lessons Learned from 2020

No matter how you look at it, 2020 has been a rough year on everyone. No one knows this more than essential workers on the frontlines of the security and janitorial industries, who have never stopped working to keep the world clean, safe and secure. It’s an effort you shouldn’t have to face alone, which is why TEAM has been hard at work this year ensuring our flexible technology solutions are able to meet new and unforeseen demands your distributed workforces, back-office staff and leaders face.

As a developer of market-leading financial, operations and workforce management solutions serving businesses in the security and cleaning industries for over 30 years, we know technology is only as good and helpful as the challenges it helps the users solve. The need for flexible technology has never been more crucial to you and your customers. Your customers are asking more and more from you, and crisis management has gone from a distant hypothetical to a daily strategy session. Although our data suggests the security and janitorial industries are slowly recovering from an initial downturn, we’re still facing new problems as businesses reopen and, in some cases, shut down again. Thin profit margins and fierce industry competition are now coupled with a slow return of job applicants compared to job openings and heightened responsibilities to keep your employees safe. New responsibilities are being given to your guards and cleaners in the field, and regulations from public health officials and government entities change on the daily. Taken together, this requires you to get more from your data to stay on top of constant change and predict what might happen next.

We took a hard look at what has transpired over the past year and homed in on some key themes. We’re able to learn from these, adapt to new procedures and prepare for the “next normal” through core lessons learned. Explore how holistic software solutions can adapt to meet different needs, like:
