This past fall, we partnered with LandOne Takeoff Service to make project management even easier for LandscapeHub users. The cloud-based software was founded by Josh Martin, who, after years of working in the green industry, wanted to provide a more simple, easy-to-use, cost-effective solution for managing the bid process. He looked around and found nothing, so he built LandOne to make bidding and materials acquisition easier. (Sound familiar?)
The solution looked great to us, so LandscapeHub decided to work with Josh and LandOne to combine the best of both companies through phases of integration which will benefit you, the users of both LandscapeHub and LandOne.
The first phase of integration allows LandOne users to send their takeoff lists to LandscapeHub directly from the LandOne software and quickly receive a free quote from LandscapeHub for the materials listed on the takeoff list (shown below). No jumping from program to email and back. A click of a button and the list is sent for quoting! To use this feature, though, you’ll need to sign up for a LandOne account.
Benefits of LandOne
Cloud-based software that is continuously updated. You never have to purchase and install a “new version” or take up valuable hard drive space on your computer.
Ease of use. You don’t have to be a computer specialist to use this software. It’s intuitive and comes with plenty of.
Streamlines bidding by making takeoff lists easy to prepare. Click to count tools, the ability to save frequently used materials, and more reduces takeoff time by up to 75% while preserving accuracy.
Ability to share. You can easily share lists and info with other contractors and companies through the cloud. No printing or faxing required. (Not having to deal with a printer? Priceless!)
Here are some of the nitty gritty details of LandOne features that help you quickly and accurately generate takeoff lists for speedy quoting.
Project by project organization: Name your project and keep track of project notes. Upload plans: Upload images or pdfs of plans or take an aerial picture from google maps. Create custom materials: That you can add to your plans later.
Plan markup: Manually place/draw materials on your plans. Editing materials: Allows editing of existing materials while you’re working on annotating your plans Adding materials: This feature allows you to add new materials while you are marking up plans by drawing in areas, such as lawn. Downloading docs: A feature that lets you see your takeoff in list form.
Free Quote from LandscapeHub: The aforementioned integration that allows you to quickly get a quote for your takeoff list.
Takeoffs are the first pen-to-paper step that contractors take when estimating jobs. That’s quickly followed up with hours of back and forth with suppliers to source materials. By streamlining both processes with easy-to-use software that works together, LandscapeHub and LandOne help shave hours off of job estimating. The quicker you can get a quote to your client, the more likely you are to get the job.
You don’t just want quick, though. You want to ensure accuracy of bidding and quality of materials. You can kill two birds with one stone by taking advantage of the phase one of the integration between LandscapeHub and LandOne.
Coming soon, LandscapeHub data will be live in LandOne for an even more seamless quoting process. We’re just at the beginning of integrating all phases of landscape design/build project management into one seamless workflow, and more exciting developments are to come. Take the time now to familiarize yourself with the benefits and features of LandOne and LandscapeHub, so that as new integrations are added you’ll be poised to take advantage of them and grow your business.
