The year ahead
The start of the New Year is always a good time to reset, reinvigorate
and reevaluate your business. For some, that’s considering how new
technologies can assist in maximising efficiencies and productivity.
The cleaning sector has been relatively uninterrupted by digital in
comparison to other industries but it looks like that is beginning to change.
And while technologies like autonomous machines are still in its infancy
in NZ – automation and equipment connectivity is starting become more prevalent and widely
adopted. Many would also agree that clients are seeking more data and transparency such as real-
time updates and tracking which software programs are now allowing for.
But more importantly, these systems need to add value and should not be implemented solely
for technology’s sake. As Mark Jones writes on page 20, “IT should be your savior, but it can be
a curse if you get it wrong”. Continuing on the topic of tech in this issue, Lizzie Hunter delves
into mobile’s growing role in cleaning (page 14) and Kaivac’s Ron Segura examines some of the
emerging technologies beginning to make waves.
You might have also noticed that we’ve had some digital developments of our own recently, with
the launch of the INCLEAN NZ website (www.incleanmag.co.nz) and e:clean digital newsletter,
which offers a monthly roundup of the industry’s biggest news stories.
Also in the issue, we share highlights from OCS’s national conference in Napier where frontline
staff took centre stage; Environmental Choice New Zealand’s Francesca Lipscombe looks at local
companies who have taken the bold step of eliminating disinfectants; and Labour Inspectorate
regional manager Natalie Gardiner asks, what do your labour practices say about you?
The INCLEAN team and I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming CleanNZ Expo, the
only dedicated trade show for the NZ cleaning and hygiene markets, at the ASB Showgrounds
in Auckland on May 9 and 10. For more infor mation about the two-day event or to register to
attend visit: www.cleannzexpo.co.nz.

Investing in people is crucial for business growth and success. Keeping staff up to date
and informed on the latest industry practices, standards and information is vital in the
commercial cleaning industry. In the upcoming issue of INCLEAN NZ we explore what’s
on offer and how some of the leading organisations are training and upskilling staff.
The May issue of INCLEAN NZ will also be distributed at CleanNZ Expo, New Zealand’s
only dedicated trade show for the cleaning and hygiene market.
