CGG Veritas Services (UK) Ltd, a world leader in the
development of natural resources through geophysics, strikes
gold when i-Clean Systems surveys its cleaning needs
CGGVeritas was born of a combination of Compagnie Generale de Geophysique and Veritas DGC
Inc, companies which have been pioneers in the advancement of geophysical exploration since
1931. But the organisation's decision to use i-Clean Systems to survey its 7,303 sq m premises
and support in tendering their cleaning contract has been richly rewarded.
Significant improvements have been
made in the standards of cleaning
by refocusing resources and tasks in
a much more efficient manner, also
5% savings for 2010 are predicted
in CGGVeritas's contracted cleaning
cost - with staff already enjoying a
vastly improved service.

without the help of i-Clean Systems.

through to our selecting a new cleaning contractor," Ms Claydon recalls.
"Despite the many demands on all our time he ensured that all project deadlines were kept"

Systems through its Senior Business Development Manager, Judy Nolan: "In the six years that I
have been involved in tenders such as this, I have never received such great communication as
you have maintained throughout. I am extremely impressed with your efficiency and the speed in which the entire process has been completed".
Since its introduction in August 2005, the i-Clean Cleaning Management System has attracted
interest from a variety of organisations in the commercial, manufacturing, service and public
