Transparency key to Clientskey

Clientskey, a specification-based management system, aims to create more transparency between cleaning contractors and clients. Clientskey co-founder and director of operations Prakash Somarathne discussed with INCLEAN editor Claire Hibbit the idea behind the software and its features, including soon to be launched beacon technology capabilities.

Melbourne-based management platform Clientskey is turning the traditional management system model on its head, with a new program that enables companies and clients to create, access and monitor customised specifications and requirements.

At the time of print, Clientskey was still in its testing phase, with commercial cleaning companies Cleanamaniacs Australia and Directeight trialing the technology. The platform is slated to be available to the wider commercial cleaning market from May 2017.

Prakash Somarathne, Clientskey co-founder and director of operations, told INCLEAN, transparent communication is key to the management system’s offering.

Users produce and assign a series of customisable specifications and requirements for workers, and are notified once the task has been completed.

Council installs underground waste system

Smelly wheelie bins, noisy garbage trucks and scavenging rodents will never plague Maroochydore’s new city centre on the Sunshine Coast.

Rather than employing a fleet of wheelie bins and rubbish trucks, Sunshine Coast Council will suck rubbish from waste inlets in the walls of apartments and commercial buildings at speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour through a 6.5 kilometre system of underground vacuum pipes, lurking beneath Australia’s newest, 53-hectare city.

Three colour-coded waste inlets will deal with general waste, recyclables and organics and each will be compartmentalised and sealed underground until the vacuum pump gets switched on to suck it into the central waste facility, probably twice daily. There will also be waste inlets above ground in public areas which will look a bit like daleks.

The waste will then be put into sealed compactors and once or twice a week the council will receive a message indicating if the compactor is full and the waste needs to be collected.

The council’s director of infrastructure services Andrew Ryan said the Swedish system, pioneered in 1965, was already popular in the Northern Hemisphere and would be the first one installed in Australia…
