Stanley Steemer Launches Mobile Applications as Part of Business Transformation with Expedient’s Infrastructure as a Service and Disaster Recovery Solutions
"This stuff is like magic. Literally one button to push and we were in another facility."- Tom Junewicz, Director of Information Technology, Stanley Steemer
Stanley Steemer is the nation’s leading provider of professional deep cleaning services for homes and businesses across the country. Founded in 1947 and headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, Stanley Steemer – via its iconic yellow vans – offers national coverage through nearly 300 independently owned and operated franchises and company-owned locations.
With nearly 45 years of combined experience leading Stanley Steemer’s IT operations, Tom Junewicz and Rob Bennett – and their 20+ person IT team – had steered Stanley Steemer through a number of evolutions in information technology. The era of digital transformation, however, was driving one of their biggest opportunities – and challenges – to date: the deployment of mobile field services.
To accommodate this major shift in business operations, Stanley Steemer’s mission-critical applications – including its customer-facing online scheduling tool and its internal business applications for dispatch, order entry, payroll, and human resources, among others – needed more capacity and the highest levels of availability.
The virtualization of Stanley Steemer’s infrastructure and the added confidence of business continuity delivered with Push Button DR have given Stanley Steemer the business agility to transform its field operations and continue to innovate its core business applications – while relying on Expedient to take care of everything else.
