The cleaning industry has been picking up on technological advances that have been helping its growth. Many janitorial franchises are still behind the curve, but we have implemented technology to the fullest. Our franchisees use apps on smartphones and tablets that enable better communication between them and their customers, and they can also use it to track items and complete electronic inspections for jobs. Image One franchisees use the best cleaning technology there is to offer, so customers know they are getting the best service possible.
2. Customer research/impact
Customers are doing their research to find the best franchise for janitorial services. Our customers come to us because they know that what they are getting is the most valuable for the price. Because we offer purchasing assistance to our franchises, we are able to help them get the best prices for their products. Our customers also respond well to our consistency and dependability, which partially comes from the technology, but really comes from our franchisees’ dedication to their businesses. With an Image One franchise, you are invested in being a professional in the cleaning industry.
With any commercial cleaning franchise, it is imperative to market yourself. We realize that there are a lot of franchises offering janitorial services, so we set up support systems to help you get your name out there. The Franchisee Support Network is an excellent system that helps franchisees stay up-to-date on the latest trends in the industry, and it helps them keep their franchise organized. Our team has also developed resourceful materials that can help you get your name out there, and we offer assistance as well. With a franchise model like ours, owners know that they have the support and resources they need to get on people’s radar.
4. Cleaning products
The last factor that is making a serious impact on the cleaning industry is the product line. All janitorial franchises offer something different to their customers. For example, we choose to use environmentally friendly products that provide the deep cleaning needed without the harshness that come from other brands. This makes us not only the safer choice for businesses, but the better choice for the planet.
