    Go iLawn is due to release a new version of the online property measuring service mid-October. The service allows contractors to grow their businesses by streamlining the sales process.

    Go iLawn is an online property measuring service that allows
    contractors to search, identify and measure properties with just a few clicks of a mouse. Contractors can accurately and efficiently bid more properties from the convenience of the office.

    “With over 4,000 contractors across the United States and Canada adopting Go iLawn, we listen to what our users need the most from our technology” says Grant Gibson, President of Go iLawn. “We want our customers to grow their businesses with Go iLawn. The improved site functionality makes it even easier to use. Contractors can deliver bids in the hands of prospective or existing customers faster than before".

    Go iLawn features include:
    * 100% Coverage of United States and Canada
    * Search by business name, location, intersection, landmarks and other points of interest
    * Point and click measuring tools
    * Save property measurements to use at a later date
    * Color code, label, copy and edit measurements
    * Convert units of measure (square feet to acres on the fly)

    Go iLawn is more than a measuring service. A contractor has the ability to extract owner name, property value, complete mailing address with carrier route, land use identifier and other vital information necessary to provide
    an accurate bid. The property reports are available for residential, commercial and industrial properties.

    Residential contractors can access the demographics of a neighborhood. Demographics include household income, average property value, and the average spent on home maintenance, pets, and lawn services during the past year. This feature provides a competitive advantage when marketing to prospective customers.

    “We tell contractors Go iLawn is a great supplement to when the contractor actually visits the property. Measuring the turf, mulch, shrubs, trees, asphalt, concrete and other items of interest prior to the property visit
    allow the contractor to spend more time with their prospective customer. We encourage contractors to complete measurements before visiting the property to make the property visit that much more productive. Our users
    know the exact number of man hours, the correct amount of materials to purchase and in turn they are able to demonstrate to the customer they know how to execute the job” states Mike Rorie former President of Ground
    Masters and now CEO of Go iLawn.

    The ability to connect with the customer’s job site so quickly and with the pertinent facts is an advantage that contractors don’t want to live without once they discover Go iLawn.

    love goilawn but thought the measuring aspect was soooo much better in version 3. I still currently use version 3 cause i think it is more user friendly. Great product though!

    Not sure what that is all about. They added our area late last year I think. We still go out to the site to do a bid I don't see how you can not do that because you still need to check the property. But we then measure with Go iLawn. You simply can not get a more accurate measurement. When you are measuring for applications knowing the exact square footage not only helps you get the amounts right but saves you money by not over applying and yields better results by not under applying. I would send them a message they are very good about getting back to you quick.
