Our Story

When Gerald and Saagar attended ISSA in Chicago – they noticed a disconnect between what janitorial software companies were saying about their features, and the experience actual owners are having with those tools. They realized that the products were outdated, hard to use, not powerful enough.

After interviewing 300 more business owners of BSC’s to understand their experiences, Gerald and Saagar teamed up, and set a vision to change the industry. Janitorial companies deserve world class software built by world class technical talent, and there has not been a company to date to do that until now.
