In 2009 when we launched Go iLawn, it’s primary use and goal was to help landscape contractors measure properties online. Over the years it has evolved into a tool that not only helps with property measurement but also with sales, marketing and operations– and we owe a large part of Go iLawn’s evolution to our clients.
We’ve been fortunate that our clients have taken the time to explain the details and nuances of landscape estimating to us to help us advance our tools. We’re even more fortunate that they continue sharing their expertise and industry knowledge with us.
“How Landscapers Estimate” Survey
We recently surveyed 276 Go iLawn users about estimating and proposal generation and we gathered some great, share-worthy information from our respondents.
For example, our clients overwhelmingly responded that the most difficult part about preparing an estimate is finding the time to do it. They also said second quarter is the most popular time to receive estimate requests.
