Verifying Contractor Work at the Site
Application 18: It is the winter season. You have a landscaper/employee who is responsible for cutting the grass and picking up trash weekly. He says he is there three times a week, but you are not sure because the grass is dormant and the trashcans are full. You would like to have a more verifiable procedure to make sure you are receiving your money's worth.
Solution: When the landscaper/employee comes out to cut the grass, pick up trash, and blow the lot you can require them to slide a special card with account number 66666666 . The Infinity System has been set up to look for a 66666666 event, and will Email anyone listed in the Contractor alert group when the landscaper is on-site and slides the card. This event also executes a special command file that was loaded on your site controller as part of the Infinity installation. The command file prints a receipt to card reader #1 that the landscaping personnel can take back to their office for billing. The receipt includes the site number, date, time, and the message, Thank you for cleaning our site. Please call our office if you have any problems. ( NOTE: The system is also pre-setup for monitoring other contractor services: security regular visits [see below], security alarm visits, pressure washing, pump washing, adding winter additives, and company personnel visits.)
Note : This feature has been pre-setup in your system around the card number 66666666. If you wish to use another card number, you will need to make the changes to your Infinity configuration to look for the card number you are using, notify the contractor alert group, and to execute the Landscap.cmd command file.
