    Agreed. Some properties are easier to acces at certain times. One neighborhood I do is nearly impossible to park in after 2:30 or on weekends. Some city neighborhoods are best serviced and left before noon. Also we have some properties that really are only suitable for our "A team". The other crew seems to butcher a few areas (ruts, torn turf etc.)

    I have to admit the routing software has improved greatly in the last couple years. But managing where my crews are and when is a big part of my job. Maybe I have control issues, by I think being directly involved in these decisions is important to me. I can't imagine letting a laptop run that part of my business.
