Jangro triumphs in Innovation Awards
As well as winning its category in the Innovation Awards, Jangro scooped the overall winner's trophy for its new Smartphone app which breaks down many of the barriers that prevent cleaners from being properly trained. Its new distance learning programme, called ‘Learning Management System’ (LMS).enables contract cleaning companies and organisations that directly employ cleaning staff, to train every employee on a range of specific cleaning tasks for only £0.99p, per person, per course.
The first release of LMS programmes offers modules to cover basic everyday janitorial activities, such as Floorcare, COSHH, Washroom Cleaning, Introduction to cleaning, Introduction to Equipment, Kitchen Hygiene, PH scale and cleaning agents, Colour Coding, Bio-Hazards, Infection Control and Carpet Care. Each module comes with range of online COSHH and technical data sheets, risk assessment and product usage guides, animated instruction on everyday tasks and an ‘Ask the expert’ interactive source of information. The LMS is accessible on any laptop, palmtop, tablet, BlackBerry, android phones or ipad. All sources of information, excluding the LMS training modules, can also be accessed on a new Jangro mobile phone App or by scanning the relevant QR code in the packed Jangro catalogue and soon to be available on all product packaging..
The LMS system works remotely so it can be carried out at times to suit the user. Programmes operating times vary from 50 minutes to 90 for the very detailed floorcare module. Users can dip in and out in short sessions – maybe 15 minutes a day to suit, so learning could never be easier. Employers and training managers can remotely monitor employees’ progress and check on progress of each employee.
Jeremy Thorn, Sales and Marketing Director of Jangro, told us: “Today, distribution organisations have big customer responsibilities and if they want to grow their market share they have to add value to the products they sell and training is the most effective way of meeting customer needs. End users must understand cleaning issues and be aware of the right and wrong way of carrying out each task. The LMS is affordable for every organisation employing cleaning staff and will ultimately save money in getting the job done the right way, the first time, using the right products.”
