can take care of this; delivering on tap whatever tools and equipment are needed, wherever they are needed, and all the while guaranteeing complete compliance.

Guaranteed Compliance While health and safety should always be treated as a key priority, ensuring that all equipment is safety compliant and in full working order is a continuous and time- consuming task. By working with an outsourced partner, the responsibility of compliance testing can be passed into a trusted pair of hands. This often includes all equipment related health and safety, technical and PAT testing obligations as well as ensuring all equipment is tested, serviced and maintained. With these worries removed, cleaning contractors no longer need to tackle service-related issues that occur from equipment problems or worry over prosecution for equipment non-compliance.

Improved Quality

And Effi ciency Surprisingly for some, outsourcing tools and equipment can signifi cantly increase and improve quality. Outsourced partners possess more long-standing expertise and more specialised processes. Plus, they have immediate access to the most appropriate and up-to-date resources and technologies. Such specialist systems and processes in turn create higher levels of effi ciency that allow for quicker turnaround time and higher levels of quality.

The Reintec product range is designed to be robust, energy- effi cient and operator-friendly – equipment is designed and built to the highest standards, to ensure both operator safety and comfort. The range includes scrubber dryers, rotary polishers, vacuum cleaners, sweepers and escalator cleaners that are suitable for even the most demanding environments. Plus, the Reintec service is supported by the logistical capabilities and technical expertise of HSS Hire Group, the national tool and equipment hire business. We offer a real-time online management system,

which helps customers – cleaning contractors, FM companies and retailers – to manage their equipment effi ciently. One of the key drivers for take-up of the service is a move from a fi xed cost base to variable costs; this assists contract churn and allows for quick mobilisation.

Operational Flexibility Another key advantage of outsourcing equipment is operational fl exibility. Take, for example, large-scale events. Outsourcing allows cleaning contractors to scale up their fl eet requirements or bring in specialist kit in response to demand, without having to worry about capital expenditure, or what to do with that kit once demand starts to level off. And the advantages don’t just end there; an outsourced partner can mobilise quickly, while helping to ensure optimal productivity and ultimate safety – two of the things we most want when it comes to clean- up operations.

Outsourcing is fundamentally a simple yet very effective solution. You hire whatever you want, have it delivered wherever you want it, and in the quantities that you need it, and you can rest assured that the equipment will always turn up fully compliant, well maintained and ready to use. It is about reengineering and being able to provide a greater value faster, at a lower cost and higher quality.

However, it is important that companies don’t only take a cost cutting approach. Service and compliance must of course be maintained but, even more than that, innovation must be embraced to ensure we’re all primed to continue to deliver. And it’s outsourcing that can give companies this competitive advantage by allocating resources to develop new tools, equipment, technologies and procedures.

So, why not let outsourcing help you make 2015 a year to remember!
