Great System, Great People

I have been a user for about a year now, and the experience is really what you make of it. The tools are all there, but it is up to you to maximize the utility of the system. Whether that be creating reports, dials, or other metrics.

PROS

Aspire gives you nearly every tool you would need. The support behind the system is great. I have never had to wait more than 24 hours to have a ticket worked on. Everyone I have spoken to from Aspire has been very friendly and helpful.

CONS

I do not have any complaints about Aspire at this time. I am very pleased with the capabilities.

Aspire for Decision-Makers

I have been working with Aspire, across various companies and markets, and I love the software. As a finance professional, my motto is "Don't get mad, get data." Aspire allows me the opportunity to pull data, analysis it, present it in a meaningful way, and work with our teams for continuous improvement towards profitability.

PROS

Aspire is a huge data-collection machine: it facilities quick, sound decision-making for your landscaping business.

CONS

Aspire is not a simple, cheap software - it can be pricey. Aspire requires commitment from stakeholders from sales, purchasing, accounting and operations from the very beginning to ensure the best setup.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

We wanted better connectivity for job performance from estimating to purchasing to delivery.

Vendor Response

Kate - Thank you so much for the review of your Aspire experience. We agree - it takes commitment from all internal stakeholders to drive the success of the organization and adoption of Aspire! Love to hear how Aspire has helped you and the team grow with data.

Milosi - Finance Manager

Implementation was about 6 months before I came on board. It is my understanding that this experience was short and did not provide enough training for the staff. We have had challenges due to misunderstandings through the implementation, but seem to finally be making progress on our Aspire processes. We are looking forward to getting into the YOJ classes!

PROS

Industry specific alignment and integration with phone apps for field use.

CONS

Inability to get real time entries in to QB. Would like to see a daily update via the connector, very similar to what a restaurant POS system can provide. I understand there will be challenges with Earned Revenue, but also believe there to be a viable solution.

Vendor Response

Sheila, thank you for the detailed review and honesty! We know that the first year can be a little challenge, from implementation to adoption. Also glad to see you mention our Year One Journey offerings, as we have monthly recurring webinars on a range of topics. Please let us know if you need information about when those happen. Happy to see the general experience has been positive. Thank you.

Sajovie Bros

Positive and continually improving. We are now 95% paper free and have eliminated a large percentage of manual tasks (recurring scheduling, invoice assistant, employee time tracking, route management, customer relationship management etc etc.)

PROS

We made the transition from LMN to Aspire a year ago. The ticket management system allows us to seamlessly schedule and make quick operational changes from the start of an estimate to the receivable balance. There is less room for error in each department and a system that keeps our billing on track.

CONS

Initial implementation - It took a lot of time to set up and train employees to use (customizing to our operations vs. Aspire implementation/help with setup) The cost was an investment and commitment.

Reason for choosing Aspire

Staying with LMN and waiting to see what new features were released which did not occur as timely as Aspire releases (and announces - LMN had to sign up for release webinars, Aspire I can review at my leisure.)

Reasons for switching to Aspire

LMN was lacking the job costing reporting we were looking for at the time and the seamless work order/ticket creation from winning an estimate. It was difficult to understand navigations and not as user friendly as we wanted long term. Mobile App for time tracking was not as straightforward. Also limited users/billing model per user became too difficult to manage with revolving hiring door in our industry.

Vendor Response

Grace - Thank you so much for taking the time to share details and specifics about your Aspire experience. It is so helpful for us (and for those researching) to see specifics. We're thrilled to see the improvements you're experiencing with Aspire, our releases, and your learning journey. Thank you!

Ignite User Conference

Overall, we were very pleased with the conference, great job by everyone who put in the monumental effort to pull it off! We'll be attending the next one.

PROS

Interaction with other Aspire Users and the variety of breakout sessions and workshops. We're a new user and still learning a lot about the product, but very pleased with what we learned about where the product is going and different ways we our company ca benefit from it.

CONS

I would point out three negative comments about the conference, to try and improve it for next time: Power point has it's purpose, but there was not enough hands-on/live demo of the product in the breakout sessions. We would suggest that at the next conference, there are areas set up, similar to the sponsor booths, where we can interact in person at our leisure with Aspire personnel. It's not practical to try and squeeze in line with other attendees for five or ten minutes at the end of a break-out sessions and overload the presenters (who were always available and gracious with their time) discussing our individual company applications or questions. We were most disappointed by the lack of ability to spend some quality live/in person time with Aspire personnel (while looking at a live system if necessary) and get away from email and zoom calls. In addition to meeting other users, this was the main reason we attended the conference, and feel we missed out on that personal interaction entirely. Having vendors/sponsors presenting in the general sessions was a turn off, because their products do not have relevance to all attendees. It would be preferrable to leave them to their booths and individual break out sessions.

Reason for choosing Aspire

16 years ago we ran the company on QuickBooks and Excel. We've cycled through Service Autopilot, LMN, BossLM and final settled on Aspire, which we know is the best product after a lot of trial and error.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

BOSS was not moving forward in a timely fashion to make product improvements and seems to have lost is customer focus. One comment we would make about the Aspire is that being one of the smaller companies using the product, without a lot of internal structure or resources, we won't be able to use all of the capabilities of the product today. That makes it hard for us to justify the high cost and is why it took us so long to make a commitment to use it. If there was a product Aspire 'Light', we would have come on board a long time ago and grown with the product. With an Aspire 'Light', we could have started with what we know is the best product from the beginning, grown with it, and our company probably would have grown faster too.

Vendor Response

Dave - Thank you for taking the time provide such details about your experience. We love hearing about your time at Ignite, as well as with the Aspire platform. This was our 5th Ignite conference and it continues to get bigger. We did offer a range of activities and areas where customers could interact with our team members, from the Product Hub area and AspireCare desk area. We are in the early stages of planning our '24 Ignite conference, so we will work to incorporate more opportunities! Thank you for the info on Boss and LMN!

Aspire Pros & Cons

overall, I would give Aspire a 90 out of a 100. If you asked me this question 18 months ago I probably say 60 out of a 100. But watching the videos and contacting support has been a great help. Your Customer Support team gets a 100. They always get back and help right away.

PROS

estimating is streamline now for us Job costing is awesome since using Aspire our profit margin has gone up which is great

CONS

I do not like that you can not edit the lines on the invoices. We have a few clients that I have excel sheets setup for invoicing because I can't edit the line on invoices for a maintenance contract. I

Estate Landscaping Review of Aspire

Overall we love Aspire and look forward to there road map with all the new features especially the AI technology.

PROS

Aspire pretty much is used to run our entore company except payroll. We have metrics and KPI set up that our Leadership monitors on a daily basis. We like the way we can propose a clinet right from the field.

CONS

Aspire continues to grow but there are some features we wish would have been resolved before some of the non-essential items were released.

Reason for choosing Aspire

The owner of Estate was best friends with Kevin Kehoe, Estate was one of the first companies on Aspire.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Didn't do everything we needed it to do. Couldn't accomplish the customer satisfaction that we were looking for in one software.

Aspire is a pretty comprehensive and reliable product!

Overall, Aspire is almost a one-stop shop for everything in our business. The only thing it doesn't really do for us is accounting and payroll. There are some aspects of the software that we'd love to see improved, but feel assured that the improvements will come after the commitments and level of investment made by Aspire and Service Titan. We're excited to see how the software grows and improves!

PROS

As the chief data analyst for the company, the access to real time data is the most valuable part of the software.

CONS

The End of Month process for closing our books for the month has to be made easier. It's a process that takes around 20 man hours every month on average, sometimes more.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

We were dissatisfied with the lack of innovation and improvements made by the company. We needed more capability in a rapidly growing, innovating, and competitive market, and they were either unwilling or unable to meet those needs.

Aspire Can be Your Best Friend

Overall, I think Aspire is great. It has helped our business grow and gain better insight into the true costs on a job by job basis.

PROS

Aspire can seem very daunting at first glance, but if you take the time to really dig in and learn it, Aspire is fantastic. I like that it updates in real time. That you can track productivity on a ticket by ticket basis. The ability to apply all costs to individual tickets to better understand the job profitability. And you can build pretty much any report you could ever need.

CONS

There are work arounds when it comes to billing set up (like getting the bill to info to match a certain Management Groups needs). I would like to be able to use a customer's email more than once, because of billing work arounds.

Vendor Response

Thank you, Alex! We truly appreciate your comments and feedback, especially as a long-time user who has grown with our product. We're so glad you find the real-time and financial related information and reporting so valuable. Implementing new software can be daunting at first, but so glad you and the team worked through the details! Great feedback and use-case as well for using customer data. We'll be sure to pass this along to our team. Grateful for your perspective and insights! If you ever want to share more, just let us know!

Better, Faster, Stronger

Our experience has been a very positive one. Customer support during implementation was very good. Ongoing support for users is excellent with very fast response times and knowledgeable representatives. Aspire is constantly making improvements to the system based on user recommendations and so far, each new version release has improved our user experience.

PROS

Intuitive user interface. Logical data query format makes finding granular data very easy. Reports are easily customized and shared with other users. Customer support during implementation was very good. Ongoing support for users is excellent with very fast response times and knowledgeable representatives.

CONS

Initial concern was pricing. Aspire appears expensive when compared to similar systems but it actually saves our organization money through better management of the sales and production process, resulting in better gross margin and revenue per employee.

Reason for choosing Aspire

Better access to information, better support, better remote access options.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Asset is a robust system but customer support is essentially non-existent. This ultimately limited our ability to fully utilize the system which made it a frustrating roadblock to any success.

Vendor Response

Theodore, thank you for your feedback! We're pleased to hear you would recommend Aspire to others and that our software has saved you money and improved your profit margin. We are always honored to be a part of our client's success. Stay tuned for future updates, we will continue to improve Aspire to meet the needs of our users!

PROS

3 years in

It's been great. Honestly, the partnership with our CSMs (or CSMs interim) back to implementation and the support we get from everyone at Aspire is amazing. We value relationships here at PGI, but didn't realize we were buying more than just a software.

PROS

Being able to have easy access to see how much money we are making or losing on jobs. This is important to be able to know if we are bidding correctly or not. The goal is to grow, not sink.

CONS

Honestly, as more and more releases and updates are done, the system just keeps getting better and better.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

It was user friendly, HOWEVER, it was not geared to Commercial Maintenance. Also, the training to use the product was nowhere near the training that Aspire provides.
