NEW CLEANING MACHINES A UK car park operator says its new fl eet of cleaning machines have helped it effi ciently manage its estate during the pandemic.

NCP, which operates more than 500 sites across the UK, invested in 20 Glutton cleaners to further enhance safety and cleanliness in its car parks.

The Glutton delivered signifi cant productivity gains, enabling NCP to keep its sites in great condition, even with a reduced workforce during the current pandemic and furlough period.

Brian Devonshire, Director of Managed Services for NCP, said: “With the onset of the pandemic we have had to look closely at all opex and make effi ciencies wherever possible without impacting service. Therefore, having the Glutton machines at a time when we have a reduced workforce from furlough measures has meant we have been able to keep on top of a key objective of keeping our car parks clean for our customers.”

The Glutton is an all-electric, pedestrian controlled vacuum cleaner that can tackle dust, dirt and debris up to 12.5cm in diameter. The battery-powered machine is quiet, effi cient and designed to capture dust, helping to improve air quality.

Devonshire added: “We have had very positive feedback from our teams, who recognise the value of time given back to re-deploy labour more effectively by utilising the Glutton. Replacing manual brush and shovel with something as effi cient

ePower Trucks, the authorised UK distributor for the Glutton, supplied the machines in a custom colour for NCP, along with some specialist trailers. Oldham-based ePower Trucks is an independent supplier of on and off-highway electric vehicles, designed for a wide range of applications and celebrates 20 years in business this year.

Devonshire said: “Having received and assessed a range of proposals we began working with ePower

centres on a rolling contract with Q3. The specialist software is expected to be rolled out across other sites over coming months.

Clenetix was appointed because the cleaning management software was cost effective and simple to deploy, and clearly demonstrates cleaning hours delivered whilst eliminating time consuming admin.

The software as a service from Clenetix also eliminates bottlenecks

Trucks and quickly found they had taken time to understand our business and our objectives. They listened to us as we explained the challenges we were facing; and we were impressed by the way the team went about ensuring they met our expectations and requirements. We look upon them as a partner rather than as a supplier.

“Quite simply, investing in the Glutton machines has enabled us to improve standards, deliver welcome effi ciencies and allowed us to re- deploy our people to spend more time with our customers.”

in the distribution centre as cleaning staff arrive at entry points making it a much more COVID-secure process. Cleaning operatives can immediately start their shift without clocking in/out, increasing productivity.

Q3’s deployment of Clenetix at this national logistics company follows implementation across a number of other accounts in the retail and legal services sectors.
