CINCINNATI – GIS Dynamics, parent company to Go iLawn and Go iPave Software as a Service (SaaS) recently released its enhanced property measuring tools and measurement grouping feature. The software upgrades were developed around user feedback and they were built to further streamline the estimating process for landscape, snow removal and pavement maintenance contractors.
Measurement grouping was initially added to Go iLawn and Go iPave in June 2011 allowing users to group property measurements by surface type: turf, mulch, edges, asphalt, concrete and sidewalks. It was designed to help contractors quickly and accurately quantify equipment, materials and total square footage for different areas of the properties they measure for estimates.
Now the measurement-grouping feature is customizable. Users can add, edit and delete measurement groups. Plus they can assign colors, units of measure and proposal information to their groups.
They can create site maps that speak to the different services and tools of their business very easily, says Chris Ascolese, head of business development for Go iLawn and Go iPave.
Go iLawn and Go iPave users can also save custom groups, and assign a default custom group to their username, allowing them to create user profiles.
In addition to the measurement-grouping feature, the Go iLawn and Go iPave measuring tools have been refined. Now, measurement results will display in real-time in the user interface. This allows users to create custom line distance and area measurements if needed, says a news release from the GIS Dynamics.
