Remember back in the day when customers called in requesting landscaping services, and there was no way to contact the contractor that was already on site? Or those late nights of accounting for hours and hoping you billed them correctly? Well for those contractors making the switch and going digital, situations like these are a thing of the past.
Upgrading technology, both in the field and in the office makes a lot sense and smart landscapers are gaining a competitive edge for makiing the switch. They are providing better service and communication with their customers and maximizing their efficiency. It can also have its pitfalls if their system gets lost or stolen. We look at all sides of the digital divide on this week's #landscapechat.
