With Arborgold Software, you will have everything you need when taking care of your clients, letting your business run at peak performance. Before diving in, let’s take a moment to learn about the benefits of tree inventory management and why it’s important for your tree care business.

9 Benefits of Tree Inventory Management Software

1.     Efficient Resource Management: This particular software helps in managing resources more efficiently such as equipment, tools, and personnel. This ensures that the right resources are available when needed, reducing downtime and wasted expenses. Efficient management of resources and optimized maintenance schedules will contribute to an overall cost savings for your business.

2.     Accurate Record & Data Storage: Key features of the software allows for accurate recording and organization of information related to each tree, including species, health status, maintenance history, and location. This comprehensive record-keeping aids in informed decision-making and allows you and your team to effectively manage your customer’s needs.

3.     Optimized Maintenance Schedules: By having a detailed inventory, tree management software can help in creating and optimizing maintenance schedules. This ensures that each tree is cared for at the right time, promoting overall tree health. Optimized maintenance schedules also help when obstacles such as weather get in the way. Arborgold Software allows you to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to operations management, scheduling jobs, and job management.

4.     Risk Assessment & Mitigation: Tree inventory software can also assist in identifying potential risks associated with trees, such as diseases or structural issues. Risk assessment enables proactive measures to be taken to mitigate risks and prevent accidents.

5.     Compliance & Reporting: Tree care businesses must adhere to regulations and certifications. Tree inventory software can assist in compliance management, including access to historical reports and documentation required for regulatory purposes.

6.     Customer Communication: Some inventory software includes features for customer communication, such as a customer portal. This can help with sharing maintenance schedules, updates on tree health, and other relevant information, enhancing overall customer satisfaction. Customers find this feature to be of value because it tracks communication and updates on the overall health of their tree inventory.

7.     Data Collection & Accessibility: Having a centralized database of your customer’s tree information allows for easy access to data from various devices and locations. Mobile use of the software promotes collaboration among team members and ensures everyone is working with up-to-date information and data.

With Arborgold Software, your data is stored and accessible wherever you are. A customer’s tree inventory management needs is a collaborative effort between the sales estimating team at the first site visit, to the mobile crew who visits each tree and provides health updates.

Customer data should also be used and accessible to the sales team, marketing team, and customer support staff. This ensures that all tree inventory data is used to build customer loyalty, increase revenue per customer, and provide additional testimonials and reviews for future sales.

8.     Mapping & Visualization: Many tree inventory software solutions offer interactive maps and visualization tools to manage trees, which are two key features of the software. This can be helpful in planning and monitoring tree inventories and managing multiple trees at once – especially for large-scale commercial projects with acres of tree inventory. The map feature also updates in real-time which allows for effective updates, reporting, and data collection.

9.  Environmental Impact Monitoring: For businesses with a focus on environmental services and sustainability, tree management software can assist in monitoring the environmental impact of tree care activities and making informed decisions to minimize negative effects. The environmental impact data and reporting can also be shared with landscaping companies and lawn care companies that work on your customers’ properties so that everyone has the same understanding around the environmental impact of the properties they maintain.
