Aided by technology, many of us get more work done in a day than would have seemed possible only a few short decades ago. But the industries that could most benefit from technology are often the last ones to embrace it.
That is what Chicago entrepreneur Ricky Regalado learned after launching a commercial cleaning business five years ago. As the company grew from two employees to 130, it became harder and harder to train employees and track performance and productivity.
Regalado decided to build a mobile app, RozaRoute, to streamline the process.
“There’s such a lack of data and technology in the cleaning industry,” said Regalado. “There’s nothing available for real-time tracking when cleaners are in the field.”
