Covid 19 has created a new normal for most businesses going forward.But business interruption events like this, present opportunities hidden in the challenges. To find those opportunities look to solid business fundamentals like communication, service standards, operation enhancements thru technology, pricing, or new product & services. Enhancing communication with clients is always a good thing!
Some of us are more outgoing and have that priceless skill of networking. Which has built many successful companies. But the majority of us are busy managing people and services and the time we set aside for operations related communication is minimal. Think about it. How do you currently communicate services to clients? For most of us the answer is with an invoice! That’s because operations communications to clients is time consuming. It’s hard to gather organize and send field data like services, photos, notes, dates, times and then share them with clients.
Imagine if a good portion of operational communications to clients was automated. To the point where it would include valuable information of specific services , date, time, photos and notes. Sure, you can be passive and wait for clients to ask specific service questions but why not provide them with the knowledge, data and access to information.
Sharing service details with clients builds their trust and confidence in their service, which in turn build customer loyalty and referrals. It’s a simple formula.
Cappsure’s automated, field reporting, communication tools, make it easy and convenient for the busiest service managers to communicate professionally with clients. Now’s a great time to bridge that communication gap even more between you and your clients. Improving that fundamental that will reap rewards coming out of this down cycle and reposition your company. For more information and to schedule an appointment go to www.cappsure.com.

Running a profitable landscape company isn’t always about just getting the job done. That is rather the easiest part of the trade. Most business owners know that a lot more goes into operating a landscaping company that is successful as well as profitable – how a worker or office employee goes from one place to another in their day, and everything in between and behind it. Efficiency and effectiveness are at the heart of a landscape company’s success and especially in an economy where prices continue to rise. But how does a company be effective, successful, profitable while at the same time improve employee efficiency?
Heres how Cappsure’s landscape business management software has been helping businesses improve performance and increase revenue:
Work Remotely From Anywhere
If you’re a looking to succeed in 2021, then you need to be prepared to run your business remotely. Your landscape business can be more productive and more profitable only if its set up with the right technology, training and work processes. What if we tell you that you could close more sales, track your crews and keep your finger on the pulse of every project on the go — all from the back of your car or your front porch?
Our business management software lets you create work orders, proposals, invoices and much more on the go. You can check up on work progress and track your crew with photo documentation and geofencing.
Enormous time savings
Using software and apps to manage daily tasks like workers’ timesheets, job tracking, billing, scheduling and more, you can absolutely eliminate all kinds of time consuming, headache-inducing paperwork each week. It could also be that you constantly tackle problems from crews showing up and not knowing what they’re supposed to be doing, jobs taking too long or incomplete, crews waiting on materials to arrive at location… etc. This results in you spending precious time on phone calls and answering text messages to coordinate all sorts of things.
With Cappsure, you can assign work orders, track their progress, create reports on the same and also invoice clients.
Clear and effective communication with your employees is essential to meet work expectations and standards on all fronts. The easiest way to simplify your Landscaping Business is to revolutionize the way instruction and information flows from the field to the office and vice versa.
On one hand Cappsure helps you clearly define to your field workers all job goals to be completed on a property, while on the other hand it updates the office administrators with real-time updates on the same. Crews can be assigned work on geofenced properties, assets can be mapped using GPS pin drops, worker time sheets are automatically recorded and completed work can also be viewed ith before and after photos.
Sometimes Cappsure users may want to share a Field Report with a customer, vendor or possibly internal team member, without the need for them to log into Cappsure.
The video below provides one option for sharing any Field Report within Cappsure regardless of the completion stage – from Un-submitted Maintenance Reports to Pending Work Orders, etc.
The View/Print link discussed in the below video can also be paired with our new Zapier integration and could, potentially, be automatically logged in your Company’s CRM or included on an invoice sent out from your accounting system like Quickbooks, Freshbooks, etc. Read more about Zapier here: Cappsure Integrates With Zapier!
