and completely transitions to Aspire within schedule by using automated property measurement tech! A humongous task became a walk in the park.
They are now using automated property measurement as part of their SOP. They save time on every proposal and have experienced higher closing rate by generating proposals faster - thanks to lightning fast and accurate measurements from SiteRecon.

"We had to get our entire portfolio mapped as we were transitioning to Aspire. We initially submitted a master spreadsheet of the properties that needed to be measured, but we kept on finding properties that were not on the original spreadsheet as we were going through organizing. So I think that number grew from around 500 at the time of starting to over 600 by the time we were done."
Context - Tim talks about how SiteRecon helped him transition to Aspire by measuring more than 600 properties within just two weeks.
"We realized pretty quickly that it was going to be an effective tool for us despite all the reservations. Pretty much as soon as we submitted the list and started getting back properties back from you, we understood exactly what it was and what a benefit it was to us."
Context - Tim talks about how it took him no time to notice that automating the measurements was positively affecting his business.
"I think that if people really want to be honest, it takes them more time (to measure properties) than they want to admit. Whether it takes you 5 minutes or 15 minutes or 30 minutes, you can get those minutes back (by automating the measurement process) to devote to something else that maybe somebody else can’t do for you."
Context - Faster measurements allow for faster development of maintenance proposals.
"(It helps us get) real detail. Not like, “Oh yeah, that looks like a two hour property and a 40 yards mulch.” I mean it is real square foot production rate estimates that are accurate and trackable."
Context - Tim talks about how the accuracy of measurement speeds up the entire process.
“The first person there has a pretty good chance of closing, and it allows us to be that first person there with a proposal much more often. If you’re not able to respond quickly in a professional and accurate manner through the sales process, then they (customers) are probably not going to think that you’ll be able to do that on the service side.”
Context - Tim talks about how automating the measurements affects the closing rate.
“It has 100% streamlined our sales process. It eliminates the room for error and streamlines the process where everyone knows what the process is, the process is the same for everyone, and it’s done in an efficient manner.”
Context - Tim talks about the biggest benefit of automating property measurements.
“It’s been a huge tool for us. We like the pricing structure; we like how the credits work; we like the turnaround time. Give it a try. I think if anybody gives it a try, they’re probably not going to go back.”
Context - Tim's two cents for the industry.
Parking lots, sidewalks and pavement surface areas for snow plowing and de-icing estimations
Turf, hard edges and soft edges for lawn care, irrigation and fertilization
Beds and pruning surface areas for shrub care
Tree count and height for estimating tree care operations
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.
SiteRecon combines different sources of imagery to get the most complete picture of the site -
The above sources are combined with the latest high resolution aerial imagery of the site to extract measurements.
Yes. SiteRecon access the best-in-class aerial imagery from Nearmap to extract measurements. Nearmap imagery is collected over 700 cities within the last 1-9 months. The collection frequency depends on how big your city is. The bigger the city, higher the collection frequency.
Yes. It is possible to place bulk orders on SiteRecon. This how it works -
No. SiteRecon supports measurements for -
You can open SiteRecon app on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets/iPads. As long as you have an internet connection and a mobile in the field, you can access the maps.
SiteRecon enables you to share maps with accounts added to your organization's workspace. Everyone added to the workspace can view the maps and measurements
For people outside the team, you can share a map just like sharing a YouTube video - using a web page link.

Even if you have 50 properties to measure every year, those are 50 opportunities to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
You have only paid for the software subscription. You haven’t paid the real cost of using it - the cost of time invested into measuring properties and the missed opportunity to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
