No more drawing polygons. No more manual measurement. 

Attentive also gives you the option to add up to 10 properties in the queue for measurement. This means now you can feed all your commercial properties in the system at night, and before you come back in the morning, majority of your estimation work will be done.

How to export the output?

Attentive gives you the option to export your output in 4 formats: PDF, Excel, JPEG and via a shareable link. They are all useful in different ways, but the shareable link is the most convenient of them all. 

This means once you are done measuring a property, you can share the output with your ground team instantly. Making it easier for your estimators and sales representatives to collaborate with your on-site crew. 

How does this impact your business?

We understand that property measurement is the most tiring and error prone step in the estimation process. But important outcomes such as bid pricing, bid conversion, and job profitability depend on the accuracy of these measurements. 

Currently, this job is being done by sales/account managers using out-dated tools like Go iLawn and Google Maps. These platforms fetch the property image and pass on the rest of the work to the users.

With Attentive, you get to take away this manual work from your teams, so they focus on one thing that really matters – GROWTH.

What makes Attentive even more exciting is that it is able to do all this, while saving you precious dollars. By saving upto 90% of the time (and associated dollars) spent on property measurement using traditional methods, Attentive is able to save significant amounts of working capital for your landscaping business.

In short, Attentive’s cost is outweighed by the amount of time it saves for your employees.
