Congratulations for completing the basic level of the Cleaning Management System project!

In this quest we will continue the cleaning management system project by adding two more features: view stocklist and stock to replenish.

This quest will help you develop an understanding of how coding is used in the cleaning industry and how the emergence of new technologies is impacting the industry.In other words, you will learn how to use and develop your IT skills and competencies in the cleaning industry, as the digital transition is already impacting businesses, especially in customer relations and back-office management.

 Acquiring coding competences contributes to empower women returners in their personal development.


In this example we will code a project which replicates the management system for a Cleaning Company.

This project will help you develop an understanding how coding is used in cleaning businesses. As part of the activity participants will design a software in which the cleaning staff will be able to:

a) View Houses to Clean

b) View Cleaned Houses

c) Book New Clients

d) Manage Houses

e) View Stocklist

f) Stock To Replenish

At the intermediate level, participant will be able to display the stocklist and use calculations in Scratch to figure out which stock items need to be replenished.


In order to complete the quest and create the software, you have to follow the instructionss provided in the document entitled 'Cleaning Management - Intermediate' in the resources section.

You should also have a look to the two documents provided entitled:"How to strenghten the integration of migrant women" and "The impact of emerging technologies on Commercial Cleaning of Facilities". The first document named here includes key policy lessons based on OECD work on the integration of migrant women (education level, labour market integration, benefits of empowering migrant women,etc) as well as additional resources. The second document is about the impact of emerging techonologies on Commercial Cleaning of Facilities.It includes several external resources on the different new technologies affecting the cleaning sector such as AI,machine learning,VR,cleaning equipment, etc.

These documents help you to understand how digital transition is slowly emerging in the Cleaning industry. To know more on this topic, you should also visit the link provided on the "8 commercial Cleaning Technology Trends Worth Investing in". This web page lists several key technologies involved in the Cleaning Industry such as the QR codes, management software,robots, AI, social media, etc. Soon, digital technology will be essential in this economic sector.






The second step in developing a management system for a cleaning business at the intermediate level is now completed. Now that you have build your coding skills and have a better understanding of what programming entails in particular the need to develop your digital skills even in an industry like the cleaning sector which on the face of it seems to be an activity that is far removed from new technologies and more focused on manual and traditional activities.

You can now move to the advanced level of creating this management system for a cleaning business.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply Scratch programming to the improvement of a simple project at an intermediary level
  • Improve problem-solving skills
  • Understand variables and data in Scratch
  • implement programming knowledge to real life application
  • Improve the code to allow a cleaning company to display a stockilist with calculations to figure out which stock items need to be replenished
