ROBERT SCOTT Robert Scott has launched a new complete kit designed for use with its fuss-free disposable Mi-Mop microfibre pads and Stream handle.

The new Mi-Mop kit features a heavy- duty Uniko brake-frame, Stream handle complete with a 10-pack of disposable flat mop pads offering all of the cleaning power of microfibre.

Gill Ireson, head of sales at Robert Scott, explained: "The kit is perfect for rapid response, spot cleaning of smooth flooring, and is especially relevant in hygiene-critical areas or where there is no access to laundry facilities.

"And thanks to the new Mi-Mop 100% microfibre pads it excels in tasks where preventing cross contamination is of utmost importance – such as hospitals, care homes and restaurants

– as the pads can be used and disposed of immediately after use.”

Utilising years of serious cleaning know-how, Robert Scott’s Mi-Mop is designed to provide cleaners with a quick and effective method for the removal of 99.9% of harmful bacteria without the need for chemicals and effectively cleans away dirt, dust and microorganisms.

a solution that possesses the right mix of employee scheduling and workforce management functionality.


SMARTTASK Adoption of employee scheduling and workforce management software SmartTask gathered pace in 2017, the company has reported.

In particular, there was an 81% increase in the number of field service businesses using the system, which now includes 40 cleaning service providers.

Paul Ridden, CEO of SmartTask, said: “Over the past few years we have worked hard to understand the needs of the cleaning industry to develop

20 | WHAT’S NEW?

“This has enabled us to achieve impressive growth last year both domestically and worldwide, with our software now being used in 15 countries and successful trials underway in mainland Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia.”

The number of facilities that are now coordinated using SmartTask grew by 160% in 2017 to over 16,000, across a 17,000-strong employed and subcontracted workforce. In fact, the variety of managed sites expanded significantly to include: football stadiums, national museums, retail developments, industrial estates, science parks, schools, universities, factories, airports, banks, hospitals and even a F1 racing team.

SmartTask continued to help soft service providers to gain visibility and control over customer sites

with more than 250,000 rounds/ patrols monitored, over 5.5m NFC checkpoints scanned, and 50,000 electronic smartforms processed during 2017. Meanwhile, the intelligent rostering functionality is now being used to schedule almost one million hours of work per month, as well as calculating £40m of employee pay and £50m of customer billing over the past year.

SmartTask introduced a new cleaner onboarding/vetting capability in 2017, to simplify appropriate employee screening and background checks. A comprehensive trial of Smartbeacons was also undertaken as part of a project to extend workforce monitoring and proof of presence options.

Paul continued: “We are looking forward to building on this success and expect to continue this growth trend through 2018 and beyond.”

As a soft, low-linting microfibre pad it can be used dry on hard floors for dusting and rapid-response mopping, or damp for chemical-free cleaning and, as it’s disposable, it also can be used with hypochlorite solutions.

The award-winning Stream aluminum handle incorporates a 500ml reservoir within the handle, which is easily filled using a jug or bottle. By pushing the handle top, fine jets of liquid are sprayed onto the floor ahead of the mop head.

The Disposable Stream microfibre flat mop kit is a convenient and functional solution for prevention of cross- contamination when cleaning.
