Vermeer has created a free app for tree care professionals to better serve their clients. Arbor Quote is an application designed for iOS and Android smartphones that allows tree care professionals to create and manage quotes for their tree care business, giving them the ability to send quotes from the jobsite directly to the customer’s email.
This estimator gathers, stores and shares key data about tree care jobs and customers, both past and current — including things like project name or number, customer information, job location using GPS, job detail, cost and supporting imagery.
It can be utilized for tree or stump removal, and tree pruning or moving. Arbor Quote accounts for equipment and permit costs when generating customer quotes. The goal is to eliminate paperwork and consolidate pertinent job information in one location that is accessible to the tree care service provider.
Arbor Quote not only streamlines the quoting process, but it also stores customer history that may be useful for future jobs, as well as email notifications that a quote has been sent. Additionally, the application comes complete with GPS Auto-Fill functionality and a quote summary/closeout feature.
“A tree care professional will benefit from using Arbor Quote thanks to the mobility it offers,” says Todd Roorda, sales manager for the Vermeer tree care and rental and landscape strategic business units. “This app functions as a mobile office for the tree industry, creating and sending quotes instantly from anywhere and at any time. Arbor Quote is ideal for tree professionals that are eager to streamline processes, save time and provide quick and reliable services for their clients.”
The concept for Arbor Quote arose when trying to find a way to streamline the job estimation process for small -to-mid-size tree care contractors and arborists. Arbor Quote puts resources that have been more traditionally available only to larger contractors into the hands of smaller operations.
When Vermeer developed Arbor Quote, user experience was a top priority. The result: a robust tool that is accessible, free of charge and easy to use.
