“Our biggest differentiator is customer service. So if we tell people we’re different, well, that’s fine; I’m sure everybody else does. But if we can show them that we’re different, we turn proposals around faster and that we make decisions on pricing based on data - we get data from you - then that’s a big differentiator there. That plays into our customer service because that’s our only differentiator.”
“They thought it was 30,000 feet of grass, well, actually it’s 50,000. Well, guess what, you’re upside down in your fertilizer application. This hurts not only from the managerial standpoint but from the labor standpoint and there goes your schedule, and then your manager’s pissed, and then you’re behind. I mean, it just steamrolls right. So if we can have some accurate production rates to go with the data that we’re given by SiteRecon then it’s a simple system."
“From a pricing standpoint it definitely helps us but I think it also instills some confidence into the sales reps knowing that they’re coming to the table with an estimate that’s accurate. So if the sales rep believes that what they’re selling is accurate and fair, then I think it’s easier for them to have that conversation when someone’s trying to beat them down on price or things like that because they understand what the costs are accurately.”
“I bet it saves 6 months of somebody’s salary and from the sales standpoint we’re turning around faster too. I mean, it’s literally a no-brainer.”
“It’s starting to play a bigger role in what’s going into the agreements. We’ve always been putting in the property maps and now the difference is that now the property maps are clear with the outlines from the property. So the maps are used (for more than just estimating) and they’re getting used more and more and more as we find new ways to use them.

Measure properties at the click of a button
SiteRecon is an end-to-end, fully automated property measurement solution.
It is an online platform that measures the properties for you. You have the option to measure properties on your own or get them measured by the software.
It has a button - 'Get Measurements' - that creates orders to generate property measurements.
All you need to do is input the address, select the features to measure and press that button - SiteRecon pulls the property outline and high resolution aerial imagery; measures the property, checks for quality and delivers the data.
Result - fully automated property measurements.
You can measure standard features such as surface area of turf, beds, sidewalks, parking lots; length of soft edges and hard edges; count of trees and palm trees.
Depends on the size of the property, the number of features to be measured and the volume of order traffic. In case the system is not swamped with measurements (>95% of the time), you can expect to get back the measurements within:
Why does it take 30 minutes to do turf on a residential site? Because someone in our team always eyeballs the measurements extracted by the computer algorithm from aerial imagery to make sure that the data created is accurate.
SiteRecon users have verified the measurements through site visits and you can see their testimonial in the case study videos.
