If your labor costs so much more than your products and supplies, why does it matter what you use?
It’s easy to get pulled into the conversations about the rise of on-demand business models, online marketplaces and how much they cost CBOs in revenue shares, and the dramatic increase in worker and class action lawsuits claiming employee misclassification damages. The summer has been active in all of those areas, and we at CleaningBusinessToday.com have been scrambling to keep up with the announcements and cases.
In October 2015, though, we want to return to some basics: what products and supplies are working, not working, and are new for you to investigate?
And the ISSA/Interclean Trade Show is a prime opportunity for CBOs across the country to collect samples and take a hard look at what they’re using and what they might be using to clean
- more quickly
- more effectively
- with less product
- with less water
All toward the end goal of high efficiency. Why efficiency? Because time is what costs you the most money, not the actual products.
And this year for the first time at ISSA, the trade show includes an Outdoor Exhibit Space to allow for product demonstrations. See them in action and even try them out yourself before making a decision!
And be sure to favorite CleaningBusinessToday.com Booth 3296 in the ISSA Mobile App and use the Map feature for walking guidance to find us easily!
