VSP Vision

LEED Platinum Custodial Services for the Nation’s Largest Provider of Vision Benefits

VSP Vision is the largest U.S.-based provider of vision-care insurance, serving more than 90 million people worldwide. The company is also a leading purveyor of high-quality eyewear, including state-of-the-art lenses and lens enhancements.

Situation

In 2007, PRIDE Industries was selected to provide custodial services at VSP Vision headquarters in Rancho Cordova, California. Our CIMS-GB vendor certification qualified us to provide the green, sustainable cleaning services needed to achieve a LEED Platinum rating for VSP Vision’s headquarters—a rating that requires close partnership with a CIMS-GB service provider.

Then in 2015, VSP Vision needed a maintenance provider that could meet the stringent cleaning and safety standards of its 35,000-square-foot Ohio call center. Once again, VSP turned to a trusted partner with a proven track record—PRIDE Industries.

Solution

After accepting the Ohio call center contract, PRIDE Industries set to work designing and implementing a process that would enable the facility to pass CIMS-GB audits and meet VSP Vision’s meticulous standards for cleanliness and safety. To meet these ambitious goals, PRIDE Industries established service benchmarks modeled after the world-class custodial service it was already providing to VSP Vision’s California locations.

PRIDE Industries utilized a web-based contract management system to account for all tasks and meet the established benchmarks. In addition, we teamed with VSP Vision to conduct joint audits of completed work. This attention to detail, combined with our collaborative approach, enabled us to exceed VSP Vision’s expectations.
