Let me know if you have any questions. Also, I think there are a few guys on here running Jobber so maybe they can help you too.

Thanks,

Jeff
That looks pretty decent. I'll check that out. We use Google Calendar to schedule all of our jobs, crews, estimates, etc. Does your program sync up with Google Calendar?

Out of pure curiosity... Does anyone use some type of analytics, data collecting? The only reason I ask is where I work is all I hear. If so, I would be interested in feedback.

Hi Jim,

It sure does. It is actually amazingly seamless too. Here is a link to our landscaping page: http://getjobber.com/industry/landscaping

You can sign up for a free trial there and take a whirl. We still offer free one on one demos too which I'd recommend but let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Jeff

Hey Mark,

What kind of analytics do you mean?

Nothing we billed for as that all went to QB but we track all kinds of field info to refine our bidding process and that info is just gone.

I keep thinking at some point I will have accumulated all the info I will need and won't need to do this anymore but I keep finding information that helps us tweak the estimating process. We do upper end resi maint so it can get complicated.

We used Qxpress for a short time but that was way to cumbersome.

I have recently found this app "Sign My Pad Pro" https://market.android.com/details?i...v.signmypadpro

It looks promising for us as we have a very comprehensive worksheet tailored for the work we do it only takes about 2 min to complete. This app will allow us to complete it digitally and e mail or sync it at the end of the day. Unfortunately it has no accounting component so we will still have to enter the numbers into QB but we already do that. I have to get a pad to try it out.

Hi AZ,

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with software. That really sucks that you lost all that data, I can't even imagine how frustrating that would be. Is that because it is lost forever or they won't let you have access to it?

If you aren't too turned off from software perhaps we could be a fit for you. On the bright side, we are web based meaning there is no chance your information could ever be lost.

If you'd like, you can sign up for a free trial and check it out for yourself.
Definitely let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Jeff

Question about Jobber

Hi Jeff from Jobber,

I've got a question about your software.

I don't schedule my customers by time.
Example: 7:30am to 8:00am

I schedule my customers on a particular day by order.
Example:
1. John Doe
2. Jane Smith
3. Bob Jones

Can I schedule that way in Jobber? A lot of companies with large routes don't use times, they use order.

Thanks!

Thank you for supporting our forum. Without sponsors there may not exist such a place for a bunch of cranky old farts and know it alls to gather.

Lawnsite is kinda like a bar, only different!

Thanks and good luck this year.

Hey DRO1D,

Yes, you can schedule jobs for a specific day without a time required. We are currently working on a function that will allow you to order them by location/proximity or in whatever order you prefer. This is literally what our programmers are working on right now so it should be released shortly. However, until then I'd recommend scheduling them without a time or just using generic half hour blocks as a stop-gap.

Thanks,
Jeff
