Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 15, 2010
UGL Unicco, a subsidiary of UGL Limited (ASX:UGL), today announced that it has been selected by Stop & Shop Supermarket Company to provide maintenance and repair services to all of the company's stores in New England, New Jersey and New York.
Under the three-year contract, UGL Unicco staff are deployed to the stores to perform routine building maintenance including ceiling, wall and floor maintenance; painting; lighting; door repairs and replacements; and other repairs, as well as in-store construction projects.
The UGL Unicco staff use a fully-automated Corrigo dispatch and reporting system that enables them to view, update and close work orders in the field using handheld devices. The system shares data with the Stop & Shop corporate data systems to facilitate automated billing for the services directly back to Stop & Shop and through to the store level.
"Stop & Shop is a sophisticated customer that has an outstanding Help Desk, systems and controls," said UGL Unicco Senior Director of Operations Larry Leverone. "We have been able to smoothly integrate both systems and personnel with their operations to efficiently carry out these remote services throughout their network of stores."
