SiteOne Landscape Supply Partners with Aspire Software
SiteOne has partnered with Aspire to expand its business management software solutions offering to its customer base.
“We seek to partner with the best of the best in the industry — like Aspire — giving customers access to superior services and products to increase their company’s profitability,” says Sean Kramer, CIO at SiteOne Landscape Supply. “The smart business management software makes it easier to handle day-to-day needs without relying on multiple people to do the task, offering another solution to manage the continued labor shortage that many are facing.”
Aspire is trusted by more than 51,000 users in the landscape industry to manage nearly $4 billion in revenue.
The SiteOne and Aspire integration is ideal for businesses with more than 10 crews. Users can link their SiteOne account with up-to-date catalog pricing. Because material pricing can fluctuate, this helps reduce the guesswork often required for building accurate and timely estimates.
“Working with SiteOne, the industry’s top distributor, gives Aspire customers 24/7 access to updated prices on the products they rely on at the job site,” says Mark Tipton, CEO of Aspire Software. “As the partnership evolves, we hope to offer more of the features available on SiteOne’s e-commerce site like ordering materials, scheduling delivery, development of estimates, managing invoices and more — all through the trusted Aspire Landscape platform that helps their company be successful.”
SiteOne’s Business Management Center provides details on how to link an Aspire and SiteOne account.
Also, SiteOne’s mobile app is now available to download for free on any iOS or Android device. With the mobile application, users can place an order online and choose to pick it up from the nearest branch or have it delivered. They can also review open orders, pay invoices, reorder products based on purchase history, locate the nearest branch and receive order status notifications.
“We know how busy landscape professionals are, so it’s important for them to be able to have access to up-to-date product availability and pricing, ensuring estimates are created on time and the product is available for the needed task,” Kramer says. “We are excited to release this tool to the industry making it even more convenient for users to utilize SiteOne expertise anytime and anywhere.”
LMN Adds to Its Platform and Acquires Greenius Online Training
LMN, a B2B landscape business management software company, has acquired Greenius, an online training software solution for the landscape industry. Together, LMN and Greenius will create the first fully integrated system offering end-to-end training together with comprehensive business management software. Greenius will continue to be provided as a stand-alone offering to customers as well.
“The addition of Greenius to the LMN family is huge for our customers and the industry,” says Mark Bradley, CEO of LMN. “We know just how important training is to landscaping leaders and their teams, and with Greenius, we can provide the best available training to help customers meet and exceed their needs.”
The acquisition bolsters LMN’s training capabilities as the company offers hundreds of courses in both English and Spanish each year on topics such as maintenance, construction, snow, safety, equipment, supervisor training and more.
“We could not be more excited to join LMN,” says Arden Urbano, co-founder and president of Greenius, who will continue to lead the Greenius team. “We share the same values and passion for customers, and together we will create an experience that will help them take their companies and the industry to the next level.”
LandOne Partners with NearMap to Make Designing Enhancements Easier
LandOne, a design and takeoff software provider for the landscape industry, has partnered with Nearmap, to provide up-to-date, high-resolution aerial images.
While LandOne can work with drone photos, this integration allows users to search an address in LandOne Takeoff and instantly capture a recent aerial view of a property. Nearmap provides reality and context to projects. Their aerial imagery captures current, future and historical images across 700 urban and regional areas, including cities and suburbs that house over 80 percent of the U.S. population – surveying 308,000 unique square miles each year.
“Our users are loving this new feature,” says Joshua Martin, founder of LandOne. “This week I worked with a new user to design a new planting for a pool patio that had just been installed this spring. With one search we pulled a hi-res image that was less than a month old and already had the new patio in it. We immediately began designing the new planting right on the image for them to sell!”
