Hawk Enterprises (HAWK’s) Eye View: Valuable Insights into the Evolving Landscape of the Janitorial Sanitation Industry

Hawk Enterprises and Janitorial Sanitation Industry

Hawk Enterprises is excited to share our insights and experiences with you about the evolving landscape of the Janitorial Sanitation Industry. As a leading player in the industry, we’ve seen significant changes in the past few years that have impacted the way we do business.

Our industry has been in acquisition mode for the past two decades, but in the last five years, we’ve entered hyper-acquisition mode. One of the main differences is the increase in funding from outside the USA and from outside the janitorial industry. This influx of investment has brought about a shift in customer demands and expectations, as well as changes in the way we operate.

Here are some of our conclusions about the timeline of changes in our Janitorial Sanitation Industry:

  1. Customers are more sophisticated and are demanding a better customer experience. They want high-quality cleaning services that are customized to their specific needs.
  2. Financial managers are driving cost savings from custodial operations. As a result, cleaning companies need to find ways to operate more efficiently without sacrificing quality.
  3. National account business is increasing, and street business is decreasing. More and more companies are looking for national cleaning providers that can service multiple locations.
  4. The outsourcing of non-traditional users is increasing. As companies focus on their core competencies, they are outsourcing cleaning services to specialized providers.
  5. Government GPOs and purchasing cooperatives are pursuing K-12, state, and federal purchasing contracts. This trend is making it easier for companies to bid on government contracts.
  6. Traditional user Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) are crossing over into other market verticals. This shift is creating more competition in the market, which is driving innovation and improvement.
  7. Modern buyers are demanding their B2C shopping experience from their B2B suppliers. They want a seamless buying experience that includes easy ordering, fast delivery, and personalized service.
  8. B2B digitally enabled sales portals are delivering training, troubleshooting, product specifications, and pricing to the user. These portals are making it easier for customers to access information and place orders.
  9. 75% of the transactional sales force will be replaced by B2B digitally enabled sales models. This trend is changing the way we sell and market our services.
  10. Integrators are applying supply chain optimization metrics to the JanSan market. This approach is improving efficiency and reduces costs.
  11. The leading venture capital firms, private equity firms, and large corporations are investing in manufacturers, distributors, and building service contractors. This influx of funding is driving innovation and growth in the industry.
  12. User buying trends are forcing manufacturers to explore alternative distribution channels to serve customers and sustain their brands as the commercial cleaning industry matures.
  13. Cleaning is no longer a standalone industry. It’s becoming more integrated with other industries like hospitality, healthcare, and retail.

In analyzing the timeline of changes in the Janitorial Sanitation Industry, several key observations come to light:

Firstly, customers have become increasingly demanding, seeking a better customer experience and high-quality cleaning services tailored to their specific needs.

At Hawk Enterprises, we understand the importance of meeting these evolving expectations. That’s why we go the extra mile to provide personalized solutions that exceed our customers’ standards and leave a lasting impression.

Secondly, financial managers are driving the need for cost savings in custodial operations.

This means companies need to find innovative ways to operate more efficiently without compromising on quality. We’re constantly exploring new approaches and leveraging advanced technologies to optimize our processes. By doing so, we can deliver outstanding results while ensuring cost-effectiveness for our clients. Our goal is to strike the perfect balance between efficiency and excellence.

Moreover, we’ve noticed a shift towards national account business while street business is gradually declining.

This means more companies are looking for cleaning providers capable of serving multiple locations.
