Whether you've found your rhythm working from home, or you're struggling to get the most of out your day, we wanted to share some tools we'd recommend to keep you organized, communicating effectively, and collaborating with your team with ease. Even if you aren't working from home, you may find some of these tools helpful regardless. At LandscapeHub, we particularly love the money and time-saving tool, Grasshopper, included in our list below.
Whether you're a landscape contractor, nursery professional, or a retail garden center employee, you work on deadlines with customers depending on you to hit those important dates. To help you manage your time efficiently, consider these proven productivity hacks that will bring you more time in your day.
We've covered this topic in the past, but debunking the fears of buying in our industry is something we're passionate about, and the rationale for expanding your purchasing network bares repeating.
We created a brand new dashboard for suppliers on LandscapeHub to successfully navigate their business on our platform. Suppliers can track traffic to their brand and product pages as well as view sales, open quotes, and orders placed. They can even gain insights on the most and least popular products in their inventory.
Our team has been BUSY this summer, and we're so happy and fortunate that our business continues to thrive during a beyond difficult time in our world. We miss the daily face-to-face interactions with our prospects, customers, and partners, but this time has made us realize just how important a role technology plays and will continue to play in the seasons ahead. Now, more than ever before, we are assured of our mission to improve the lives of green industry professionals through technology and innovation. They will be the keys to help our industry to grow and succeed to the benefit of everyone.
We recently integrated with SBI Software, another step forward in our mission to improve the lives of green industry professionals. SBI Software users signed up as a supplier on LandscapeHub, can now provide their inventory directly from their system to LandscapeHub.
Recently, we conducted a case study with a large, regional design build firm where we compared how long it would take a purchaser to complete eight quotes of equal size using the traditional offline method versus using LandscapeHub. Do you know what we found? Completing the eight quotes using the "offline way" took 30 hours, but only took 3.5 hours...equal to a 88% time savings. The same quotes also produced an 11% cost saving when using LandscapeHub!
We’ve all been there. While you’re swamped with day-to-day operations and trying to keep ahead of work during the crazy busy season, your company’s trying to update its website with your latest, greatest projects—but clients’ work takes priority, your forté isn’t web design, and you’d rather not spend your weekend figuring out how to code. We get it. Now, more than ever, companies are very aware of how their businesses look online, and are more invested in spending time to make sure they can be found easily and leave a good impression. In addition to joining a marketplace like LandscapeHub to increase visibility, you may find time in hiring a freelancer or two to take on a couple of projects to update your website or social channels. Luckily, there’s an easy solution to find tech support to keep your business functioning and your online presence fresh and relevant.
It can be challenging to stay up-to-date on all the trends and happenings in an industry that continues to grow and change. Especially now, when all of us outdoorsy types are spending more time than ever at home, it's essential to stay inspired by the world around us. We thought it would help share some of the resources we turn to time and time again when we want the scoop on the latest innovations and new products coming to the market.
When determining where any market is going, it’s a good idea to look at its health. The landscaping industry is in great health. It experiences $77 billion in annual revenues, according to an IBISWorld Report. This report also identifies that the industry employs around one million and has an annual growth of 3.5%. The real estate market is strong, which fuels the seller’s market in many areas of the country. This is and always will be a good indicator of the demand for landscape services.
