Why do you need to generate faster quotes?

In an industry plagued by high competition, companies that are responsive to customer needs will stand out as speed of quote turnaround is the biggest factor in winning contracts.

So how can one quickly come up with a bid that traditionally takes over a week to generate?

The answer is automated aerial property measurements.

Automated measurements speed up the slowest step in the bidding process and also helps to eliminate concern regarding errors in measurement.

So you can say goodbye to underbidding or overbidding on any project and immediately start saving money.

But how can one generate automated measurements?

Property measurement software solutions like GoiLawn and Google Maps or Google Earth are an option, but they are difficult to use.

Drawing feature outlines on these tools is extremely time-consuming; time which could otherwise be better spent on sales or operations. Additionally, images on these platforms can often be quite old and not represent the actual state of the property. 

The need of the hour is to have a solution that can substitute physical property visits, do away with manual work on difficult to use software tools, and deliver insights remotely from recent aerial imagery with a high level of detailing and accuracy. 

This is where Attentive can help.

Attentive helps you measure properties from the comfort of your office or home, without stepping out and without drawing a single polygon on computer screens.

It can utilize recent aerial imagery to deliver a comprehensive measurement report on requested property straight to your inbox.

What does this mean for your business? 

Whether you have residential or commercial customers, autonomous measurements can help you in the following ways.

Residential customers – It would generally take you between five minutes and a few hours, depending on how you handle customer inquiries. However, with autonomous landscape measurements, you can measure the required parameters within 1-2 minutes, thus considerably improving your responsiveness.

Commercial customers – Usually, it takes around a few days to reply to customers with an estimate. If you can produce the measurement data under 30 mins, you can schedule a meeting to discuss the estimates within the same. It helps in keeping the lead warm and increasing the conversion rate.
