Simple system for cleaning requirements:

In cleaning companies, things sometimes get lost or there is a lack of cleaning equipment. When that happens, customers are unhappy and there are delays.

Sebastian Waack has a simple software for these companies. With this software, you always know how much cleaning equipment is available and when you need to order more.

Thanks to this software, there are fewer errors and less money is wasted.

Sebastian also shows everyone how to use the software. This makes everything easier and the work goes faster.

The challenge in building cleaning often lies in keeping track of numerous cleaning agents and equipment. The absence of a single item can bring the entire work process to a standstill, resulting in delays and dissatisfied customers.

Sebastian Waack has the solution: he brings customized inventory management software into play that monitors the entire inventory in real time. By using this digital innovation, companies can find out exactly where an item is, when it needs to be reordered and how it can be used most efficiently.

The software also offers detailed analyses that help to optimize the ordering process and thus prevent overstocking and understocking. It not only reduces errors, but also the associated costs.

But the real added value of this solution lies in the training: Sebastian ensures that every team member is fully trained in the software so that they can use it to its full potential.

With the combination of technology and knowledge, it enables cleaning companies to take their inventory management to the next level and thus work more efficiently and customer-oriented.

Automated efficiency in building cleaning:


Easier working with automation:

A clean building needs good work. Sometimes we do the same tasks over and over again, which take a lot of time. Sebastian Waack has a solution.

Sebastian has ideas on how to make tasks automatic. For example: A computer recognizes when cleaning products are almost empty and orders new ones. Or he plans when and where the cleaning teams should work.

The great thing? The automatic system means there are fewer errors. For example, we don’t accidentally buy too much of a product.

But automation alone is not everything. Sebastian shows everyone how to use these new systems. He gives training courses so that everyone knows how to do it.

Thanks to Sebastian and Automatik, work is going better and easier. This not only makes the workers happy, but also the customers.

An immaculately clean building requires careful work and attention. But the many repetitive tasks can not only be time-consuming, but also costly. This is exactly where Sebastian Waack comes in with his expertise.

Its automation strategy makes these routine tasks leaner and simpler. Just think of ordering systems that automatically recognize when cleaning materials are running low and reorder them in good time. Or planning tools that keep an eye on the availability and working hours of cleaning teams and automatically coordinate assignments.

The real advantage? Reduced error margins and a smoother operating process. Automation minimizes human error. For example, duplicate orders or planning overlaps can be avoided, allowing resources to be used more efficiently.

But Sebastian doesn’t just rely on technology. He attaches great importance to ensuring that the entire team is well trained and understands how the automated systems can be used optimally. Through workshops and training sessions, he ensures that everyone in the team can exploit the full potential of the technology.

With the combination of advanced automation and well-trained employees, Sebastian Waack ensures that building cleaning is not only more efficient, but also more sustainable and future-oriented. An advantage that not only saves time and money, but also contributes to customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Intelligent inventory with artificial intelligence:


Clean better with smart computers:

Sometimes it’s difficult to keep an eye on everything in the cleaning industry. For example, when you need a lot of a certain cleaning agent or when a particularly large number of orders come in.

Sebastian Waack has a great idea: he uses clever computer programs called “artificial intelligence”. These programs look at what has happened in the past and then guess what will be needed in the future. So you know in advance what you need to order and when you need it.

That’s great, because you can save money and always have the right thing on hand. Customers are also more satisfied because everything runs smoothly.

But the smart computer alone is not enough. That’s why Sebastian teaches people how to use the program properly. He shows them how it works and why it is so helpful.

Sebastian also keeps checking whether the smart computer is really doing everything right. So everything stays on top. Sebastian’s help makes cleaning easier and better!

In the dynamic world of commercial cleaning, it is essential to keep an overview at all times. Unplanned challenges such as the sudden need for special cleaning agents or the occurrence of unexpected large orders can significantly disrupt the normal flow of operations.

Sebastian Waack’s use of artificial intelligence untangles this knot. It uses AI systems that not only analyze past data, but also predict future patterns and needs. For example, the AI can predict when and to what extent special cleaning resources will be required based on seasons, event calendars or previous order data.

Thanks to these forecasts, cleaning companies can plan their orders and deliveries optimally. Excess stock and bottlenecks are a thing of the past, as companies know exactly what they need and when. This not only leads to cost savings, but also to improved customer satisfaction, as orders are processed efficiently and punctually.

But technology alone is not the whole solution. Sebastian understands this and invests a lot of time in training his employees. It ensures that they not only know how the systems work, but also why they are so valuable.

In addition to implementing these systems, Sebastian also adds ongoing analysis. The performance of the AI is regularly checked and adjusted in order to always achieve the best results. Sebastian Waack’s holistic approach not only makes the building cleaning industry more efficient, but also more future-proof and innovative.

Sustainable inventory & supply chain management in the commercial cleaning industry:


Clean greener with Sebastian’s clever system:

When cleaning buildings, there is often too much waste because too much material is purchased. Sometimes these materials are also not good for the environment. This costs money and is bad for nature.

Sebastian wants to change that. He would like to create his own system with the cleaning companies. The system looks at how much material is needed and also shows which products are good for the environment. This reduces waste and protects nature.

Sebastian also has an idea for a special part in the system. It is called “Green Scoring” and it shows which products are best for the environment. This helps companies to make good decisions.

The system also has parts where the cleaners can learn. Sebastian wants them to know how to clean in an environmentally friendly way. This is good for the company and the environment.

Sebastian’s idea helps cleaning companies to work well and in an environmentally friendly way. That’s good for everyone.

In the building cleaning industry, inefficient inventory management often results in unnecessary amounts of waste. Outdated products, excessive inventories or the lack of environmentally friendly alternatives can not only cause costs, but also have a negative impact on a company’s ecological footprint.

Sebastian Waack has recognized the potential of this problem and offers to develop an individual and environmentally conscious solution together with the customer. Together, they could design a system that continuously monitors the consumption of cleaning agents and materials while always keeping an eye on the environmental aspect. The customized system would not only signal in good time when products are running low, but also provide suggestions for sustainable alternatives that are both effective and environmentally friendly.

A special feature of Sebastian’s approach is the integration of a “green scoring” module. This evaluates products according to their environmental compatibility and shows the cleaning teams which alternatives are the most sustainable. It thus promotes the use of environmentally friendly products and supports companies in achieving their sustainability goals.

The system also contains training modules. Rather than just providing a technology, Sebastian focuses on training employees in the correct use and awareness of sustainable practices. This not only strengthens the commitment of the staff, but also the brand image of the cleaning company in the eyes of environmentally conscious customers.

This holistic approach not only optimizes inventory and supply chain management, but also has a positive ecological effect. Sebastian Waack enables cleaning companies to work not only efficiently, but also responsibly – for the benefit of the environment and the business.
