CLIENT OBJECTIVES

Optimize a specialized wood floorcare program that delivers:

  • Proper life cycle protection to their expensive and brand reflective asset: wood floors
  • Standard but dynamic SOW's to cover a geographically diverse portfolio of sites
  • Greater visibility to asset types and conditions

VALUE DELIVERED

USM partnered with this client to provide them with the following:

  • Improved appearance and protection of their flooring by reallocating services to high traffic street locations
  • Updated and standardized frequency templates RightSized by geographic needs and smoothed out across the year for maximum benefit
  • Updated asset register templates with flooring type, and condition assessments

SOLUTIONS

Wood floors in specialty apparel chains are both an important brand attribute and an expensive asset to maintain. USM was able to enhance the client's brand image and better protect their assets by:

  • "RightSizing" of floorcare frequencies from lower volume stores to higher volume street locations in bad weather markets within their existing budget!
  • Smoothing out service frequencies across the year to ensure higher completion of services.
  • Using USM's field team to validate flooring information by type, SF and condition. The asset data updated the client’s asset registers and helped create their Capex strategies.

Leveraging specialized expertise in wood floor care and field resources, USM was able to achieve the client's objectives of improved appearance and asset protection; standard but flexible SOW's; and improved visibility into their fleet’s assets and conditions.

BACKGROUND
