Reading School District READING, OHIO
Reading School District’s focus and strength is in the education of Reading’s youth, not in managing the daily maintenance of their facilities. The district needed more thorough facilities maintenance in the schools, and their operational expenses exceeded the allocated operational budgets. Most importantly, precious time was spent on functional issues in the facilities, when time could be better spent on areas that more closely benefit the education of the students.
Viox Services substantially improved the facilities maintenance of the Reading School District by effectively establishing a routine scheduled maintenance program; and providing performance metrics for landscaping and janitorial services. After implementing the program, Reading Schools realized a significant reduction in overall operational expenses. Furthermore, it established Viox Services as a true partner in the day-to-day operations of the school district.
Viox Services implemented a proven integrated facilities management program that included standardized preventive maintenance schedules and all the janitorial and landscaping responsibilities at the schools. These responsibilities were all measured by a consistent performance metric which the Reading School district reviewed on a monthly basis. This transparent system reduced the school’s operational budget, and forged a strong partnership between Viox Services and Reading Schools. Through this partnership, Viox offered job growth opportunities for Reading’s facilities maintenance team and supplied trusted accountability in the day-to-day operations of the schools. This partnership, in turn, allowed the schools of Reading to focus on their primary responsibility— the education of Reading’s youth.
