Five Steps to Success
Hands On Expertise
Certification & Ongoing Evaluation
Cleaning Performance Index Tool
Step 1: Hands-On Expertise
Our local account executives are industry and product experts. Their role is to guide you through the program process, work with your team through the implementation and measure the results.
"With the SupplyWorks In-Site for Ed program, our school building health scores have improved by 30% and we have enjoyed enough savings to allow us to invest in much needed automated floor equipment. The financial benefits are definitely a plus, but maintaining the health of our students is a top priority during this difficult flu and cold season."

Step 2: Benchmark Evaluation
We'll perform a comprehensive facility assessment to compile the necessary information related to all areas of your facility. After thoroughly reviewing your site, your SupplyWorks account executive will create detailed reports for benchmarking.
"In-Site for Ed is an in depth program that goes beyond the cost of product and focuses on helping Wabash Community School District 348 manage the most significant piece of our cleaning and janitorial budget by focusing on more efficient use of both labor and material through new technologies and sustainable building practices. Our custodians receive ongoing training and use the custodial operation manual provided by SupplyWorks. Today the district relies solely on green products and practices and has reduced its overall costs by over 25%. I am a firm believer that the In-Site for Education program can play an integral role in supporting any school district's maintenance program."

New Building Assessment App
The primary purpose of the data base driven assessments is to improve operational effectiveness as both the client and the SupplyWorks' account executive respond to the information it provides.
Step 3: Management Reporting
Our thorough site assessment uncovers actionable data that is used to get you on track for a cleaner and more efficient facility. This data is used to create inspection reports for custodial functions and detailed program analysis for senior managers and administrators.
Building Level Assesment
Each of the assessments measure key elements of custodial operation specific to building type and provide real time detailed graphic reporting.
K-12 Labor Analysis
The database driven labor analysis establishes building and district workload averages per custodian FTE and compares to national average. The app also provides important detail on how equitable labor is being distributed throughout the district.
"We were trying to balance our custodial staff with outsourced and district staff. In writing the bid specs for the outsourced staff we were not able to get what we were looking for. After writing in the In-Site program into our bid specs we were able to get what we were looking for and more. After the first full training seminar the feedback from numerous principals was, "I don't know what you did at that training but we have immediately seen improved performance and elevated custodian morale."
"The building assessment and training components are driving consistency with the quality of cleanliness for both contracted custodians and district."

Step 4: Staff Training
Our informative and action oriented training sessions are delivered to you online, in a classroom setting or right in the custodian's closet. Our training is available bi-lingually, with online versions that notify program administrators of completion.
Step 5: Certification and Ongoing Evaluation
Achieve one of three levels of certification. Your audit and roadmap for success are always available to you online. We will continue to work with you to achieve even higher levels of certification.
Step 6: Cleaning Performance Index Tool
The Cleaning Performance Index (CPI) tool provides clients an opportunity to design their own custom cleaning performance audit that is Internet-based. The easy-to-use CPI tool gives you a choice of room types, as well as the ability to rename the individual spaces and select from a list of callouts.
The audit provides the inspector a means to record the level of performance. It also provides the inspector the opportunity to add notes and point-and-click picture taking. The audits roll up into graphic reports that track results in each building and by building group.
