At night, Los Sampedros, Burgos is turned upside down, but by the next morning, in the cobblestone streets that surround its imposing cathedral, it seems that nothing has happened. "The cleaning service in Burgos has always been very efficient and I have a special affection for it because the origins of CheckingPlan were with them more than 15 years ago," explains Javier Casero, the creator, along with his colleagues Ricardo Cruz and Eduardo Peña, of a complex technology that apparently solves the management of daily and strategic professional tasks. Today, it is used by tens of thousands of anonymous workers in various countries, almost without their being aware of it. In 2019, it joined Cuatroochenta's offering of products and services through the acquisition of Asintec..
Hospitals, education centres, hotels, airports, restaurants, large facility service companies and real estate management companies have used this intelligent platform for the management and monitoring of their cleaning and maintenance. CheckingPlan has become essential software in their day-to-day that, integrating with the Internet of Things and relying on artificial intelligence, optimises processes and improves productivity. It optimises processes from the most basic tasks, such as the registration of the day, the control of presence or sensorised tasks (for example, notifying the cleaning staff of a public bathroom every pre-determined number of users) to the most sophisticated, such as planning work in a personalised way or preparing business intelligence reports, and processing data.
Based on the experience of implementing ERP systems such as Navision, CheckingPlan was conceived with the aim of optimising the management of tasks, initially of personnel in mobility and currently also measuring average operating times (TMP) in an office environment, to build, step by step, a powerful professional platform that can adapt to multiple work environments.
As explained by Javier Casero, CEO of Asintec, the platform was created to digitally transform urban solid waste management and street cleaning, “but we soon realized, through the clients' own demands, that it was very versatile and could apply to many repetitive, guided and short-term tasks in other sectors. You just had to listen, analyze your needs well and give an agile and personalized response."
Use cases and applications
CheckingPlan, which originated with CleanTec in 2003 and took its current form when it became a cloud-based technology in 2016, is made up of software with three fundamental elements: the frontend, the integration with the Internet of Things, and the BackOffice. The frontend – that is, the interface for the professional – is managed mainly from a desktop in an office environment (desktop user) for the start of operations, linked checklists and completion, also integrating cameras, presence clocks, sensors or other types of hardware; and also in field apps, through mobile devices and tablets at fixed points. The BackOffice, for its part, has a management panel to parameterise, obtain reports and monitor KPIs with OLAP cubes or dashboards adapted to user requirements, with the possibility of being exported in different formats, and contributes to the quality control of processes.
