ISSA 2014, Advance Named Best Customer Service Award Winner

The 2014 ISSA/INTERCLEAN trade show brought together thousands of janitorial supply distributors, building service contractors, product manufacturers and top executives to drive innovation, productivity and profitability in the cleaning industry. The event boasted five co-located events, numerous workshops and education seminars, more than 700 global suppliers and 16,000 industry leaders from 78 countries. The trade show, co-produced by ISSA and its trade partner Amsterdam RAI, took place November 4-7 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

New to the show this year were four keynote speakers spread throughout the week. Presenters included international speaker, mountain climber, business and sales executive Susan Ershler; bestselling business author Marcus Buckingham; famed basketball coach Rick Pitino; and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard. Also for the first time this year, ISSA offered education sessions after the exhibit hall closed on the final day of the show. Attendees learned about the trends shaping the cleaning industry with Dave Frank, how to treat your business like an investment with Peter Holton, and what it takes to be a true professional from Anthony Trombetta.

Throughout the convention attendees used the show's mobile app to cast their votes for exhibitors who best met their needs, answered questions, offered solutions and provided outstanding interaction during the event. For the second consecutive year, Advance was named an ISSA Best Customer Service Award Winner. 

"Once again we are both honored and encouraged to receive ISSA’s Best Customer Service Award as we continually strive to make our customers’ satisfaction our top priority. In an ever-growing industry, Nilfisk-Advance will always differentiate ourselves by valuing the power of positive customer relationships, and that all starts with service. We are grateful to both ISSA and our customers for this recognition." 

- Jonathan Kingsbury, Nilfisk-Advance Vice President of Commercial Sales

Advance & Viper: The Beauty of Smart Meets Simple

Two powerful brands. One new mission.

Introducing, together for the first time at ISSA 2014, two brands that are poised to change the face of the cleaning equipment industry: Advance and Viper.
Advance equipment features cutting edge innovation and technology that's pushing the commercial cleaning industry forward—achieving new levels of productivity, efficiency and sustainability. From the Advance EcoFlex™ System that allows operators to meet green initiatives with water-only cleaning, to the cloud-based TrackClean™ Central Management System that provides game-changing data about cleaning productivity, Advance is at the forefront of professional cleaning technology. And, with the industry-leading support and training programs, Advance has become a staple among in-house cleaners, contractors and facility managers across the U.S.
For customers who just need to get the job done and move on, Advance is complimented by the easy-to-use equipment of the Viper line. Viper products feature controls that are so simple and intuitive that virtually anyone can start cleaning with limited training. On top of that, Viper products are built to be reliable and easily serviceable, and come with an economical price point that helps those with tight cleaning budgets breathe easier throughout the year.
For facilities facing resource constraints and aggressive cleaning schedules that leave little time for training, Advance dealers now offer a full line of equipment to meet virtually any budget. The combined portfolio of Advance and Viper cleaning equipment delivers solutions for every level of cleaning need—and all from a single source: Nilfisk-Advance.
