Four ways Neo helps reallocate labor to boost your business

Cleaning automation unlocks many benefits. A thorough and consistent clean is a given, but the gains don’t stop there. And it’s some of these other advantages that our customers have come to trust, love and rely upon.

Reallocation of human capital! 

Here are four interesting ways reallocating your staff can benefit your business while Neo is raising and maintaining cleaning standards at your facility.


1. Focus on revenue-generating activities

For many of our customers, their staff have multiple responsibilities. Whether it’s the warehouse worker who juggles cataloging inventory alongside processing packages or the retail cashier who also stocks the shelves, their work requires flexibility.

Employees serving multiple roles help businesses prosper. For some facilities, though, cleaning duties can weigh down their employees’ workflows, limiting their ability to contribute elsewhere.

When Neo is a member of your team, your staff is free to focus on tasks that contribute directly to your bottom line. Inventory, order processing, shipping — imagine the many ways you can redeploy your staff to generate more revenue for your business.

2. Happier, less stressed employees

COVID-19 has redefined cleanliness standards in public spaces. Cleaning frequency and thoroughness have risen to new levels, placing additional demands on staff and increasing their workload.

To meet these new requirements, teams must work diligently and swiftly to ensure a healthy and safe environment. However, this has resulted in a sharp rise in worker burnout, leading to increased levels of fatigue and stress among custodial teams across every industry worldwide.

But what if instead of working harder, your cleaning teams could work smarter?

When you offload time-consuming cleaning assignments to Neo, you eliminate the need for workers to complete dull, demanding and repetitive cleaning tasks. This results in happier, healthier and less stressed workers.

Instead of overworked staff and rising absenteeism, you now have a more effective and productive workforce.

3. Flexible, on-demand cleaning

An organized and regimented approach are crucial elements of any cleaning routine. However, messes are unpredictable and have a mind of their own. What happens when something unexpected happens?

For public spaces especially, the ability to divert staff to clean messes as they arise is important.

With Neo on the job, you can reassign your custodial crews to other cleaning tasks in your facility. Furthermore, you can place your team at strategic locations throughout your business to increase cleaning frequency, demonstrating your commitment to cleanliness and boosting your brand’s reputation.

Whether it’s increasing surface disinfection or using staff to wipe carts, baskets and door handles, it’s an additional layer of cleanliness that was previously unavailable.

4. Improved customer service

Creating a seamless and enjoyable customer experience is pivotal for success and return business. One of the pillars of these goals is next-level customer service. From reduced wait times to proactive assistance, every little bit leaves an impression. 

Doubling-down on your customer service delivery has the potential to make your business stand out from the rest — but this is only possible if you have the time and resources to do so.

Deploying Neo at your facility gives you the capability to move staff to servicing customers instead of handling cleaning chores. When you service your customers’ needs on time and on point, you’re creating cyclical success. In the age of social media and online reviews, a positive experience won’t go unnoticed.
