In winter, snow removal is an important service provided by landscaping contractors.
As the snow starts to build, contractors are often inundated with requests for quotes.
To beat the competition and capitalise on the available opportunities, providing quotes without delays is of utmost importance as faster quotes lead to more business.
However, one of the main challenges of closing snow-removal deals is the time required to produce a quote for a client before they lose interest or switch to another provider.
What’s causing the hang-up?
The answer lies in physical property measurement.
The problem with this mode is that it’s time consuming. Apart from the inevitable logistics and traveling required to perform measurements, it can also involve a team of field service reps to carry out the job.
Even though this is a more hands on approach to property measurement, it has a lot of room for error. The financial implication of this process is also huge.
Another shortcoming of this method is that there is a limit on the number of site inspections a contractor can conduct a day.
This severely reduces the number of prospective leads one can engage with at a given time.
Using Google Maps for aerial property measurement.
An alternative is the use of Google Maps.
This method, though relatively speedier than physical site visits, has limitations of its own.
It requires one to draw polygons on the maps manually, which sometimes reduces the accuracy of measurement data.
The result is either under or over-quoting, which not only leads to unreliable budget estimates, but it also poor reliability in customer’s eyes.
What this means is that property measurement using existing methods is a time and resource-consuming process. And thus it becomes a severe bottleneck in closing deals.
