Centralized, cloud-based storage means that landscaping business owners can see, at a glance, a holistic view of their business operations and respond to issues before they hurt the bottom line.

Companies ready for a better way of running their organization–focused on profitability and growth–are ideal Aspire users.

Aspire was designed for the landscaping industry with all-in-one functionality that improves the industry’s current best practices. 

The platform sets itself apart from the competition with the following:

  • Real-time job costing data capture eliminates time-consuming manual data entry. It delivers powerful insights that help landscapers accurately price their services to maintain profitability and grow into new verticals and markets that deliver reliable revenue.

  • Ongoing software development from a team dedicated to excellence and empowering growth. Monthly updates ensure Aspire provides cutting-edge solutions that cater to the evolving needs of the landscape industry.

Switching to Aspire can be challenging for some organizations because the software is so effective at identifying inefficiencies and redundancies in operations. 

Transitioning siloed processes and discrete software solutions into a unified platform isn’t always easy, but Aspire isn’t just a new technology to install. It’s a new way of operating that unlocks new profitability in your existing customer base and prepares you to scale. 

Aspire goes further than other business management software providers to provide new users with supported personalized platform implementation. While LMN charges onboarding fees, an Aspire subscription includes implementation, ongoing support, and troubleshooting.

The benefit of switching to Aspire is getting a platform that helps you grow at three times the industry rate. 

As an all-in-one solution for field services businesses, Aspire enables landscape contractors to manage their daily operations and achieve lasting success. It’s the preferred software solution for more than 30% of the top 150 landscaping companies and is used by the top five fastest-growing companies, according to Landscape Management.

The benefits of switching to Aspire include the following:

  • Simple and dynamic mobile platform to bring your field and office operations together in collaborative work on Android and iOS platforms.
  • A scalable software solution that is as effective when companies are earning $3 million in annual revenue as it is at $15 million and beyond.
  • Ongoing product investment keeps the platform ahead of the competition and ensures customers have the most up-to-date technology for running their business.
  • Open API integrations at the Enterprise level ensure companies can continue using the software that works for them.
  • Unparalleled data visibility so landscapers can gain greater insight into their business to make informed, growth-driven decisions.
  • More end-to-end features than the competition to be a truly all-in-one platform with one-way data push to top accounting software, such as QuickBooks and Acumatica.

Aspire also provides new customers with a dedicated implementation specialist and robust online resources—including open office hours and webinars—to ensure they have the tools to adopt the software successfully.

Landscape business management software helps landscapers grow their businesses by:

  • Enabling them to do more work in less time
  • Find inefficiencies and redundancies
  • Identify and eliminate low-profit services or waste
  • Pivot into the most profitable niches in their industry
  • Understanding their actual costs to price and estimate work more profitably
  • Automate processes to enable more closed deals

As you grow from a small business start-up into a robust multimillion-dollar business, it’s natural to adopt siloed software for every aspect of your business, such as estimate creation, CRM, scheduling, and routing.

Using all-in-one field service management software like Aspire brings every aspect of your organization into a single, cloud-based platform.

By acting on the benefits delivered by our solution, businesses in the green industry actualize growth in several ways:
