A powerful scheduling tool with detailed insights.

Olympus is a janitorial service provider that now has a scheduling tool that allows us to get detailed insights on our work through site and job planning, scheduling maintenance, and employee engagement.

The Challenge

With over over 550 buildings cleaned daily, Olympus Building Services was looking to reduce any inconsistencies and inefficiencies in their current operations. One area that stood out was  the process for managing the schedules of their employees. When it came to communicating changes to schedules and calling out non-daily tasks—there wasn’t a consistent process across the company and that’s something they wanted to standardize.

The Product Discovery

We flew out to Arizona to meet with their team to get a closer look into their current processes and technologies—which primarily consisted of word docs and excel sheets that are printed out and handed to employees on their first day. Conducting in-person interviews with the management team, managers, supervisors, and janitors helped give us a full picture of the current process as well as the various pain points. This allowed us to understand the priorities and create a game plan for the product.
