Manage Scheduled & Unscheduled Jobs
You can’t offer exceptional landscaping services until you have your scheduling landscape in order. That’s why it’s so important to have a tight plan for project scheduling in place when running a business that offers landscaping, lawn care or arbor services. Is it time to prune the way scheduling happens? Check out why the grass really is greener on the other side when it comes to switching to Arborgold’s scheduling software. Many owners of landscaping companies incorrectly assume that the CRM, invoicing or estimating systems they’re using are all that’s needed to schedule jobs.
Here's an example
The reality is that these systems often don’t come with the project-management tools or job scheduling software that’s necessary to create a seamless flow. That means that some details can fall through the cracks and clients could be left having to deal with mixed-up schedules and confusion. What’s more, a business could actually be losing money due to poor scheduling. Here’s why so many owners of service businesses who work in landscaping, lawn care and the arbor arts love Arborgold:

Job Scheduling Software
BEST SCHEDULING SOFTWARE FOR SERVICE BUSINESSES
The problem with most organizational software for service businesses out there is that every task is treated the same. That means that scheduling a mowing session is no different than booking a consultation for landscape design. However, anyone who deals with landscaping knows that each task is wildly different. Anyone who has used standard job-creating software programs in the past knows that these programs only allow users to schedule all services for one job on a specific date and with the same crew. There’s no ability to break things down and do ultra-specific scheduling. This can quickly turn into a logistical nightmare when trying to balance crew availability with client expectations. It’s all too easy to get wires crossed and end up with confusion.
Creating a weekly schedule of jobs is undoubtedly one of the toughest tasks any business owner has to deal with. Arborgold’s software comes with a mapping tool that allows users to view unscheduled jobs on a map and groups them together on the same date based on location. That means that crew members can avoid covering countless miles and spending money unnecessarily on gas. What’s more, scheduling all of the jobs for the week can be done in minutes.
Special Tools for Recurring Jobs
Why deal with the hassle of creating new jobs whenever a repeat client needs service? Arborgold makes it possible to set it and forget it when it comes to clients who request repeat services. Appointments can be set to repeat on daily, weekly, monthly or custom schedules. Recurring appointments can be managed using a simple calendar.
Intuitive Scheduling Software That Makes Sense
How can Arborgold help with follow-up service? This intuitive software is capable of automatically scheduling follow-up services for jobs that require it. That means that the software does the heavy lifting when it comes to remembering to schedule follow-up appointments for certain tasks and getting those appointments on the books. Arborgold can be programmed to know which jobs automatically require follow-up appointments via the Arborgold Successor Service Scheduling feature. Subsequent multi-service work orders are automatically created when certain jobs are scheduled.
Fewer stops, less travel time… less gas… means bigger profit margins.
