Every great landscaping professional can agree that making the most out of each workday is the only way to ensure a healthy business and consistent growth. However, keeping everything running in the background while providing amazing results to happy clients is easier said than done. That’s why if your paperwork is piling up and the manual methods you use to run your business are letting you down, we recommend our job management software AroFlo.

AroFlo is packed full of all the tools you need to run your landscaping business digitally and leave behind the outdated pen and paper methods for good. Our software is designed specifically for trade and service professionals, so its features are tailored to the requirements and working conditions you experience every day.

Here are three features of AroFlo that our landscaping clients say they couldn’t do without:

1. Project management and periodic maintenance

When you’ve got a lot on the go, it can sometimes feel impossible to keep track of all the tasks related to a job and ensure everything runs smoothly. But with AroFlo’s project management tools by your side, you can pursue even the biggest landscaping jobs with complete confidence.

From within our project software, it’s easy to manage multiple projects and the tasks contained within them. Scheduling crews, assigning assets and managing materials is quick and effortless, requiring minutes instead of the hours it would take to do the same by hand.

Once a project is complete, it’s just as easy to manage the maintenance that keeps your landscaping work looking its best. With AroFlo’s periodic tasks, you can automatically generate and schedule work at recurring intervals.

Simply decide whether tasks should be completed daily, weekly, monthly or yearly, then add any necessary materials, assets, forms or schedules to ensure nothing is missed. You can even use additional features like dynamic frequencies to manage seasonal variations, ensuring that future tasks always fall within a time that works for your business.

2. Automated timesheets:

What trade professional wouldn’t want to say goodbye to paper timesheets forever? Our landscaping clients certainly agree, and that’s why our automated timesheets are one of their favourite AroFlo features.

Instead of wasting hours completing timesheets before payroll, AroFlo’s labour entries can be pulled directly from the data stored within your job management system. This additionally allows office staff to see labour entries in real-time and adjust any figures before syncing these changes across your entire system.

Now instead of chasing up your employees for their hours at the end of every pay cycle, AroFlo will calculate them for you, and this even includes overheads and custom margins such as time and a half and double time. After getting on board with AroFlo, our landscaping clients say they’ve never missed a billable hour, and with the power of our software at their back, it’s easy to see why.

3. Quoting software:

Ask yourself, what would make the most difference to your everyday work if you had fully-featured job management software to replace your clunky and slow manual systems? If your answer is anything like what our landscaping clients say, automated estimating and quoting are likely at the top of the list.

AroFlo’s easy-to-use estimating and quoting software is a lifesaver for busy professionals who handle multiple jobs throughout each week. Take a job from initial contact right through to invoicing all from within the same interface with minimal hassle on your part. AroFlo even integrates with leading accounting software providers like Xero, MYOB, Reckon and Quickbooks, letting you push your financials right across to your chosen package at the tap of a button.

With AroFlo’s quoting and estimating software running behind the scenes of your business, you’ll never want to tender a job using manual methods again
