One Step Ahead – Our State-of-the-Art System

We don’t just sit around looking out the window waiting for signs of snow to kick into gear.

Here at Glendale, we have a state-of-the-art G-Live system paired with meteorological data which automatically alerts us and our clients to the expected temperature in their postcode. We invested in this high-tech system because we want to be as prepared as possible for all of our clients – snow and ice storms can put a stop to your business operations, if we’re one step ahead then we can clear this up before it even becomes an issue. Our system makes sure that we’re extremely accurate for our national and regional clients – we know when the temperature will drop to a hazardous or critical level, whether it’s during the day or at night.  Using advanced forecasting technology via metraweather to predict weather patterns, we can be there before the weather really bites.

When a critical level of temperature is reached, our software will alert you and you’ll have four hours to “stand us down” for gritting, we’ll deploy our teams after these four hours, who will then grit/salt the required areas. Access to our live software means you’ll also be able to see when and where we have treated your site, so you’ll know exactly what our team has been up to – live from the field to your smartphone via the Glendale Live app.

Our software makes sure our gritting and snow removal services are preventative and reactive rather than a last-minute rushed effort to clear your site. Our app offers real-time contract data, live photo evidence, complete transparency, proactive contract management and the opportunity to find efficiency gaps. It truly is the best for managing your winter maintenance.
