What is landscaping software?
Landscape business software is a tool to help you manage your business more efficiently, streamline your business operations and maximize productivity. It automates key tasks within your day-to-day operations and centralizes important information for easy access.
In a highly competitive industry such as landscaping, first impressions couldn’t be more important.
One of the first opportunities to make a good impression and convert a potential customer into an actual one is your estimate. VIIZR’s estimating feature makes it easier than ever to create customized, professional-looking PDF estimates. This will communicate a positive brand message to prospective customers and show them that your business is professional.
Estimating software is increasingly common in the trades these days, and scribbling a handwritten estimate for a prospective customer can make you stand out for the wrong reasons. With VIIZR, you can provide potential customers with detailed quotes, including photos if needed, that give them a better sense of your credibility and professionalism so that they can feel confident giving the green light for your services.
Our estimating software includes a Pricebooks feature that enables your team to upsell and cross-sell services to customers, such as offering grading to a customer who is already getting seeding or sodding done. This feature is just what you need to increase conversions and improve profitability for your lawn care business.
With VIIZR’s help, your invoicing process can become more efficient and better reflect the brand and reputation you’ve worked hard to build by providing exceptional landscaping services.
Just like our estimates tool, you can seamlessly create professional customized PDF invoices to ensure you get paid on time for your service. With a couple of clicks, you can automatically convert estimates and work orders to invoices, track outstanding invoices and stay on top of your cash flow. Impress your customers and convert first-time clients into repeat landscape business.
Landscaping and lawn care is a customer-facing business, which means a good relationship with your customers is just as important as the quality of the service you provide. Making sure that every interaction and all communication you and your team have with a client is positive and professional is a key component for your business's success.
Keeping track of customer details and histories can become challenging as you grow your business and expand your team. This is where a landscaping business software solution comes in handy. VIIZR’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) feature is powered by the world leader in CRM software, Salesforce. With everything you need to know about each customer in one central place, everyone can stay on top of the details that matter.
Exceed customer expectations every time, make them feel valued and build better relationships that will take your business from strength to strength.
VIIZR offers a host of features that streamline your business operations, save you time and keep things running more efficiently.
With the Job Dashboards feature, you can quickly see the updated details and status of all current and upcoming jobs and view relevant notes and pictures from your techs in the field. This helps you manage workflow on the go and ensures everyone is always on the same page.
Our Maps & Routing tool enables you to view the route a tech takes to a job for better planning, saving on travel time, fuel and maintenance costs. It’s just one of the many ways you can maximize efficiency and productivity.
What is CRM software for landscaping businesses?
Customer Relationship Management software creates a centralized repository on all your customers in one, easy-to-access place.
Your entire team, from the crews on the ground to anyone in the office, can access and contribute to this database. This means that everyone is fully equipped with the information they need to provide top-tier customer service every time.
Happy customers equal a thriving business and are essential to the growth and success of landscape businesses.
VIIZR helps you to better manage and improve existing relationships with customers, stay on top of leads and make conversions to generate new business. All this important data can improve communication with customers and enable you to provide more personalized service. Positive user reviews and customer experiences can also generate new leads through word of mouth.
VIIZR CRM keeps all customer information at your fingertips so that everyone is knowledgeable and professional when interacting with clients and responding to questions and queries. It also makes it easy to track customer information, add notes on preferences and ensure everyone is updated in real time.
This can go a long way to establishing trust and growing strong ongoing relationships with customers.
How can lawn care business software help my business?
When your landscape business was just starting out with a couple of clients, relying on handwritten quotes and invoices, manually scheduling jobs and keeping track of important details was probably manageable.
However, as you start expanding your business, you might find that it becomes increasingly difficult to stay on top of everything and that these tasks have become too time-consuming to do manually. In fact, at some point, it can hinder your growth and revenue generation.
What happens when a storm rolls in and disrupts your scheduled jobs? How do you make sure that your techs don’t waste time standing in the rain at a job site, waiting to start on a job that you’ve already rescheduled? How do you make sure that everyone is updated and in the know at the same time?
With CRM software, the key features of your operations and business management are integrated and located in a centrally accessible place online. Any time there are changes to the schedule or job details, every single user is updated instantly. This means less downtime, more productivity, fewer delays and improved communication. No more playing broken telephone when the terms or circumstances change.
Maximize employee productivity and success
The running of landscaping businesses involves many moving parts and keeping track of all of them is not always easy.
With VIIZR’s Tech Scheduling feature, you’ll always know who is doing what, where and when. It helps you to maximize workflow and productivity by optimizing your planning and scheduling processes. You can quickly see who is available, easily select techs and assign or reassign them to jobs with the online drag-and-drop function. Everyone is updated on any changes made, the instant they happen. This software makes it possible to manage and monitor key customer data so that you and your team can always be on the same page.
Do you have a team member who makes hedge trimming and maintenance into an art form? Who excels at customer interactions? This helps you to allocate them to the kind of work that is the best match for their skills and strengths. VIIZR’s landscape software gives everyone a bird’s eye view so they can fully understand where and how they fit into the big picture.
Cut out confusion, uncertainty and miscommunication. An informed and organized team is an efficient and productive one.
Build better customer relationships
The crew working on site might not always be the same, especially depending on the type of work being one or the varying stages of a bigger project. The crew doing the grading this week might not be the same as the crew trimming the hedges and mowing the lawn next week.
With VIIZR, all your customer information, including preferences, requests and feedback can be entered into the system for everyone to instantly read and access online anytime. Even if a customer made a request last week, everyone is fully informed about the client’s needs whether there is a new crew or a new hire on the job today.
This will not only build trust and confidence in your services, but will also show your customers that they will be heard, and their needs will be taken care of no matter who shows up to do the work.
This is the kind of customer service that will set you apart from other companies.
Optimize your operations
Landscapers don’t get into the business because they love being confined to a desk doing spreadsheets and other tedious admin tasks. Landscaping software streamlines your operations and automates essential tasks so that you can focus on doing the landscape work you love - designing outdoor spaces, getting your hands dirty and interacting with customers.
With a quick glance at VIIZR’s Job Dashboard, you can get up-to-date information on the status of current jobs or projects, upcoming deadlines and the availability of your techs. This makes strategic planning and job management more efficient because you can easily see which jobs need to be prioritized. Having access to the real-time progress of current jobs also enables you to plan and schedule accordingly for future ones.
With field service software, job orders can be created and changed with instant updates to everyone, and any problems or roadblocks can be identified and resolved quickly and efficiently. With a centralized online database that’s easy for users to access, everyone is always on the same page. It also means that you can track trends to help you identify and eliminate inefficiencies, see which jobs yield the highest returns and what generates repeat business.
When you can easily evaluate and improve your productivity, efficiency and overall performance, the only way for your business to go is up.
Does my business really need landscape management software?
Are you wondering whether it’s the right time to automate your operations and leave the low-tech life behind?
Here are a few signs it might be time to embrace the technology that comes with landscaper field management software.
Spreadsheets just don’t cut it anymore
As your landscape business grows, your spreadsheets grow with it. This means that, at some point, they are no longer serving their purpose – to make it easy to track, manage, store and access important data.
While admin might not make you money, it can cost you money. When your spreadsheets become unmanageable, they also become more prone to errors and data gaps. This can cost you valuable time and result in waste resources and miscommunication.
VIIZR’s business management software for landscapers can help you avoid pitfalls like these as you expand.
Handwritten paper-based invoices are more susceptible to human error and can easily be misplaced. And, because tracking and following up on them can take more time, it also means that it takes longer to get paid.
Chasing after lost or unpaid invoices wastes valuable time and resources that could be used on the next job. Over 60% of small and medium-sized businesses struggle with unpaid invoices, which can be severely detrimental to operations and cause cashflow issues.
Hindering instead of helping your team
Back when it was just you and your fledgling business, you might have gotten by just fine by manually doing all your back-office work. Now that you have a team, this approach might be hindering instead of helping them.
Equip your employees with what they need to perform at their best and focus on the work you hired them for: landscaping and lawn care. You don’t want them spending time idle at the job site waiting for instructions, customer information or equipment.
VIIZR CRM software streamlines your operations and makes communication more efficient. Everyone can see the big picture, knows where they need to be and when and can provide status updates instantly.
Lagging on leads
If you don’t have the time or capacity to respond to and follow up on leads, then you are missing out on valuable opportunities to grow your business.
Although low-tech features served you well in the past, sometimes you need to embrace change to move forward and really thrive. Software for landscape management gives you the tools to stay on top of leads, increase conversions and generate new revenue streams.
Can I save time with landscaping software?
The answer is a resounding yes. VIIZR’s software for landscape businesses can save most users around 10 hours each week.
For the average small business with field service operations like landscapers, the software can decrease back-office work by as much as 40%. Imagine how that can transform how you run your business and live your life.
When you embrace technology and automation, it doesn’t only give you more time to spend on the people and things that matter the most to you. It also gives you more bandwidth and capacity to tackle things like the expansion of your business and developing improved and innovative strategies.
You can finally take that specialized advanced landscape design course to learn new things and expand your service to niche markets. You’ll also have more time to spend time with family and friends.
