Any of you that are looking for business management software for your lawn care (or other Green Industry business), don't forget to check out Jobber! http://www.getjobber.com
There was a post earlier in the thread about us being a good option if you're just doing scheduling, but we do so much more than that, and are constantly adding functionality too.
Jobber provides fully integrated customer relationship management in a searchable form, with multi-property support, tagging, task management and more.
Our work flow system makes it really easy to deal with Quoting and Invoicing, providing automatically generated follow-up reminders, direct-to-customer e-mailing of PDFs, and sensible status tracking.
Job management and scheduling are obviously a top priority as well. Both map and grid based scheduling let you make smart and efficient decisions with all the available information.
A growing list of add-on functionality let you custom tailor the software to your specific needs as well: time tracking, chemical application tracking, QuickBooks integration, web forms, ePayments, and more to come!
Of course it's all hosted in the cloud, so you can access it from any computer or modern web enabled handheld device, including iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, any tablet and more, and multiple people can access the system all at once, without having to worry about synchronizing anything at the end of the day. Your data is secure, backed up automatically, and you constantly have acces to the latest and greatest features we've been working on.
We pride ourselves on having created software that is easy to use, and doesn't require a lot of time to learn. We're constantly keeping that in mind as we improve on Jobber, and will very shortly be starting work on some user interface improvements that we think you'll like. We will also have some tutorial videos ready by the end of March.
There's no commitment necessary to try it out — just sign up and have a poke around free for 30 days. If you like I would also be more than happy to personally provide a free online demo to help you get familiar with the software. Just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
to schedule something that works for both of us.
We've put a lot of work into Jobber, and spend a tonne of time listening to our customers. We're growing fast and moving fast, and we really just want to help you to do the same. Give us a try and get in touch with me or with the Help Desk from inside the application if you have any questions.
All of this information is available on the website as well, but it doesn't hurt to put it right in here as well. Jobber costs $29/month. You can add all of your employees to the system for scheduling at that price. If you would like your employees (or just a few key employees) to be able to log into the system as well in order to add and maintain information it's an additional $9/month per employee. Add-Ons are, and always will be, anywhere between Free and $5/month. This pricing allows our customers to custom fit the software to their needs, and ensures that you pay only for the features you need.
All the best to all of you,
Sam Pillar / President & Co-Founder of Jobber
