Cleaning app adopted by NEC
19 February 2020
The NEC’s commitment to customer experience has gone a step further with the introduction of a toilet and washroom review app. The UK’s leading exhibition venue is now using the UK’s first fully integrated management tool and review app, Cleen.
The Cleen App has been devised by Derby-based HSG. It is free to download and enables customers and visitors to log reviews of washrooms.
The Cleen App is available to download via the Apple store or Android store. Each toilet at the NEC has its own individual QR code displayed above some of the hand dryers to identify where it is located and some washrooms also have a Cleen Tablet to enable customers to leave a review without a phone.
Users can either compliment accessible and clean washrooms or post feedback on issues such as the need to refresh soap supplies or toilet paper. The reviews are easy to post by clicking different icons and users can even upload photographs to support their review. These can then be viewed by other Cleen App users.
The NEC has its own Cleen Dashboard which is a complete washroom management tool. This enables the venue to have immediate access to the Cleen App reviews so that it can take action and directly respond to customer feedback.
Furthermore, a second Changing Places fully-accessible toilet for people with disabilities has been installed in the NEC Piazza, and this has its own dedicated review section on the Cleen App.
The Changing Places washroom is larger than standard facilities to accommodate a wheelchair user and their carer, allowing them to manoeuvre with ease, plus equipment including a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench, ceiling hoist and height adjustable washbasin.
Steve Cartmell, group FM contract support manager, said: “We are committed to providing all our customers with the very best experience possible.
“The Cleen App and the introduction of another Changing Places toilet will further enhance our offer to visitors and ensure that they can alert us if there are any issues we need to deal with quickly.
“We believe in setting and maintaining the highest standards across our venue and this is another example of how we are always striving to exceed customer expectations.”
Simon Rice, managing director of HSG, which developed Cleen said: “Yet again, the NEC is at the forefront of the hospitality industry and has demonstrated their real commitment to providing customers and visitors with high quality washroom facilities.
“Cleen will enable the NEC to monitor, address and promote their washroom facilities which are an important part of the customer experience – especially for those with disabilities or additional needs.”
