Simon, Stuart and Sam have done a fantastic job at integrating Proceed’s systems and processes into my company’s cleaning provision. The transition from previous supplier to Proceed was seamless, with updates provided on any development and plenty of on hand implementation with the TUPE’d cleaning team.

The first few weeks of Proceed have shown me what I was lacking from the previous supplier in terms of proficiency, innovation and first rate client contact. The cleaning team appear to be working to a higher standard already which is great to see given they are the same people as with the previous supplier… just under great new management! I would be more than happy to recommend Proceed to any companies who’s cleaning provision has become somewhat stagnant and who are looking to make a positive, behind the scenes, change to their working environment.

I have successfully worked with Proceed Solutions at various locations and on numerous projects over the last 12-18 months. I first engaged Proceed Solutions when we had a requirement for specialist cleaning (fogging) services at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This successful trial led to other “ad-hoc” deep cleans and temporary contract cleaning at various Wickes Stores and Distribution Centres across our wide stretching and diverse estate. As we navigated through 2020 it was clear that Proceed were flexible, forward thinking and delivered a high quality service which has led to some longer term contracts being appointed to them. I have always found Proceed to be professional, reliable, competitive and flexible and would be more than happy to recommend their services.

Proceed Solutions have been working in partnership with Fisco UK Ltd delivering excellent cleaning standards for our white-collar professional sector clients which include top 20 law, account, insurance and FTSE 100 companies. The partnership has flourished into Proceed becoming one of Fisco’s main cleaning providers nationally. Proceed have achieved this by demonstrating high levels of management, communication, innovation and professionalism. It has been a pleasure to work alongside them and the future between the two companies looks bright.  From everyone at FISco, thanks guys, keep up the good work.

As we have been in business together for 2 years with Proceed Solutions I thought it appropriate to write formally to acknowledge your contractual performance. The level of service provided by your team and their attention to detail to achieve my aims and objectives is a professional contractual success. The ‘passion’ and ‘can do’ attitude you and your management team display when supporting your staff during their duties and looking after their welfare needs is infectious, you all provide mutual support for each other resulting in an enhanced collaborative service. KPIs are met and managed, not an easy task considering the speed required to operate to comply with my direction, a credit to your junior management. Your Site Manager, Joanne, is an inspiration to her team. Her willingness to help and assist myself, my team and your team is a credit to her and your leadership. She is truly selfless, my site benefits greatly from her presence. I am particularly impressed with your ability to provide out of scope services at very short notice, nothing is too much hassle regardless of the day, week or hour – you deliver time and time again. Take this letter as my personal thanks to you and your colleagues.

Background

Subsea 7

Proceed Solutions were invited to tender for the cleaning and waste management contract at Subsea 7 in June 2019. They were one of 4 companies who had been offered this invitation. During the tender process, Proceed carried out a full due diligence of our site and returned several times to attend meetings and undertake inspections of all areas to ensure that they fully understood the brief and our requirements. They quickly identified some of the more difficult issues we were experiencing and were able to develop a fully costed proposal that fitted both our requirements and our budget. They carried out a presentation to my Facilities Management Team and we are all very impressed with their professionalism and enthusiasm. 18 months into the contract, Mark and his team are still preforming exactly what they said they would do. They are on site every week supporting us and their cleaning teams. This past year has been tough and challenging for Subsea 7 but Proceed have helped us to reduce our annual cleaning cost by furloughing staff from the cleaning team during and after the lockdown periods, and by adjusting working arrangements for the team to align with our current business needs – all whilst still maintaining the high standard of first-class service we expect. Proceed are well placed in their field and constantly provide us with the latest innovations and chemicals to help protect our employees. I would have no hesitation in recommending Proceed Solutions. They are a refreshing company, where nothing is too much trouble.

Proceed have been with us since October 1st 2017, during this time they have been invaluable to us. They are proactive and forward thinking, they work particularly hard at developing a positive relationship with their team to ensure service delivery levels are met if not exceeded. Nothing is too much trouble and their flexibility has proven invaluable to us. I would highly recommend them for any business environment, their ability to adapt to ever changing circumstances and innovative alternatives to the norm are the key to their success in the Shopping Centre​.

Proceed Solutions have been supplying John Crane Slough since 1st December 2020.

Due to the nature of our business and having a combination of a factory area and office area, it was not easy to source a cleaning company who would be able to service both. A particular area of concern was our machine shop, where cleaners are required to ensure fluid levels in machines are kept at certain pre-determined levels. This is crucial to operations.

What made ‘Proceed’ stand out from the very start was their amazing attitude and confidence in terms of being able to provide an outstanding service.

Throughout the tender process, we were very impressed with the way Proceed handled everything and the ideas of innovation that were offered to us. They paid a lot of attention to detail during their site visits and this was evident at the point the proposal was issued. Since the start of the contract, we have been receiving testimonials from different parts of the business about the quality of work and efficiency in terms of introducing new technology, taking on challenging tasks and resolving issues as and when they arise. Also the cleaning staff appear to be a lot more motivated and they feel that they have full support from Proceed.

Their approach is very hands on and this is exactly what we were looking for.  We are receiving weekly site visits to ensure things are running smoothly. All requests including sickness and holiday cover are dealt with very effectively, even at short notice.

We are receiving monthly reports from Proceed, providing a very good visibility of how the account is run – including suggestions and innovation. Each area manager receives a detailed cleaning report of their area as often as required which helps them monitor the quality and quantity of work.

Based on the above, I am more than happy to recommend Proceed Solutions.

Mitchells and Butlers

I can confirm Proceed Solutions have worked with Mitchells and Butlers as a duct and canopy cleaning contractor, since April 2019, after being awarded three areas during the tender process. They have continually delivered their KPI’s on an all Green basis from the start of the contract. This was rewarded by them being offered two more areas when an incumbent contractor went into administration. Having increased to looking after 400 sites in a short period of time they continued to deliver all targets and KPI’s. Mark, Paul and Christine and their engineers work well with our maintenance team to provide solutions to any issues they find while cleaning our systems and put right any issues our GM’s may highlight to them. On the odd occasion that complaints have arisen these have been dealt with very quickly and efficiently. As their supplier relationship manager, I have been impressed with their dedication to the contract and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for their duct cleaning services.

As mentioned yesterday I have received nothing but glowing feedback about Proceed Solutions and to the support being provided.

This has come directly from my manager about how Maria has supervised the team, and also Proceed Management for the expertise provided and ability to react and adapt our service to support regular changes over this period with limited support needed from herself while I was off.

Also there have been numerous praises from the factory side, complimenting the working relationship Proceed have with the other cleaning team. This has been a huge win and a great step. I understand Maria introduced herself to Mark and the working relationship grew from there.

A big thanks to all at Proceed! It was one of my major worries as obviously I disappeared in the middle of all the chaos, but to hear this on my return and to receive so many compliments over the support provided while on Furlough is a credit to yourselves.

Thanks again for proving my sourcing decision to be correct, I obviously left this in the right hands.

We first engaged with Proceed whilst visiting The Sustainability Event in 2021 at St Mary’s Stadium. We met Tom & Dan, who’s stand caught our eye with their innovation and clear objective to make cleaning more sustainable from products used to waste. From there we invited them in to Tender for our office and factory cleaning contract, we found them very professional but personable along with good advice on improving efficiencies in our cleaning routine without affecting our core business of manufacturing. What is key to working with them is the communication and reliability of their staff who have backed up everything they told us about themselves ….we would definitely recommend working with Proceed.”
