Review

Pros

Scheduling has been a huge help for production and keeping track of budget hours. The ability to track these in real time is a major asset with growing labor costs.

Cons

Some functions could be a little more user friendly but generally its easy to use. Sometime clicking from work tickets to schedule back to work tickets or to the next property seems a but cumbersome

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Looked for a more landscape specific product

Response from Aspire Software

We appreciate your feedback and as we continue to grow and improve Aspire, we are always striving to make the system more user-friendly.

Simplified Landscaping Review

Aspire, while quite expensive has proven save us and increase revenue quite a bit. We have lost a lot of revenue in the past by not staying organized with billing and tracking time and materials to jobs better. It has easily paid for itself and then some and made my life a lot less complicated to manage.

Pros

Contractors think in labor, equipment, and materials in order to create an estimate. It was the only product on the market that I found that really honed in on those three areas and made it simple before getting more complex.

Cons

With any software comes a big learning curve. While Aspire couldn't have done a better job to deploy the software, I wish we had easier control over setting up estimate and invoice layouts. I also think the mobile app could have some more versatility added to it. Lastly if they had a better client notification side that would be helpful.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

I verified with two other companies who I respect greatly. Both at the same time were going through deployment. Because I knew their companies well and how they operated, I knew that I had to take a look immediately.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Service auto pilot was a mess. It was very difficult to train new people on. Difficult to track materials. It didn't seem like it was set up very well for running large complicated landscape installation jobs. Seemed like it was better suited for weekly service accounts such as landscape maintenance and snow removal services, but not your landscape construction jobs. We started with it to get rid of all the spreadsheets and other programs we were using hoping to have just one program, but we never could pull away from all the other stuff. It added one more program and didn't even sink payroll with quickbooks.

Response from Aspire Software

Leif, thank you for your feedback! We're pleased to hear your investment in Aspire has paid for itself and that you would recommend our software solution to others. We love input on how Aspire can adapt to better fit the needs of our clients and your comments on layouts and client notifications will be shared with the team. Stay tuned for future updates, feedback like yours is what improves our software!

The Best Landscaping Production Software

Aspire has exceeded all our expectations and provides us with the real time knowledge of how we are performing as a company. Aspire is not a static software, they are always looking for new and better ways for the software to handle information and changes in the industry.

Pros

Aspire has organized our production information so everyone can find what they need instantly and be sure that it is current applicable information. Aspire has streamlined our invoicing, which in turn has improved our cash flow. Before Aspire I was given invoicing at the end of the month for all the projects completed during the month. Since going live on Aspire, invoices are sent as soon as tickets are completed. Aspire also streamlined our payroll process, what used to take hours in our old software, now takes minutes. Aspire also got us running on a PO system for purchases, we had tried before but we didn't succeed. Once we started on Aspire, we were able to finally get some controls on our purchasing.

Cons

The most challenges I have had are with customers wanting something special done to their invoices that can't be done within the system. However, I am able to print an editable version and send them what they want.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

Aspire offered all the features we were searching for in a software. We needed to consolidate our production reports and have an easier way to track the profitablity of jobs.

Response from Aspire Software

Tracy, thank you for your feedback! We're pleased to hear you would recommend Aspire to others and that our software has helped streamline your processes. We love input on how Aspire can adapt to better fit the needs of our clients and your comment about more customizable invoices will be shared with the team. Stay tuned for future updates, feedback like yours is what improves our software!

Aspire ... great for managing your business.

Been good

Pros

Work ticket system allows for timely and accurate billing.

Cons

Training during Covid not good. Training very important!

Response from Aspire Software

Scott, thank you for your feedback! We value customer insight like yours and are pleased to hear you're enjoying the work ticket system! We're sorry to hear that the training didn't meet your expectations. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As we continue to grow and improve our implementation team, we're always looking for ways we can make our process better. If you have any recommendations on how we can achieve that, please let us know!

Aspire Review by CWR

Overall i think Aspire is a good fit for our application. i think it provides a good system for job estimating and job costing.

Pros

The aspire software offers a lot of solutions we needed for our business. The fact that the billing ties to QB is invaluable in my opinion. The PO system has saved us hundreds of thousands in unauthorized / or incorrect billing. Deployment was a nightmare at first, we definitely didn't make it easy on our consultant, but he also did a pool job of guiding us in the correct direction. We had a change in consultants about half way through and she got us back on track.

Cons

There are small issues that are annoying... when you email a PO to a vendor it doesn't save a record on the opportunity or work ticket it's associated with, also it doesn't recall any email addresses, so you have to type in address every time. super waste of time. in the scheduler i sometimes have issues finding the work tickets i want to schedule (not sure if that's user error) Often times a work ticket will report committed costs against purchase receipts that have been received and approved making EOM procedures difficult, especially if the purchase receipt was approved ina closed month. I don't thnk the payroll function works for us... (not certain bc i don't do payroll)

Reasons for choosing Aspire

The team thought it looked easier to use.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Salesforce was good for Customer service documentation... not so much for job tracking. we needed a system that would complete both.

Response from Aspire Software

Christina, thank you for your feedback! Job tracking is so important for reporting profitability and we are pleased that we could fill that gap for you, along with saving you thousands on fixing billing issues. We love input on how Aspire can adapt to better fit the needs of our clients and your comments about purchase orders, and auto-populating email addresses will be shared with the team. Stay tuned for future updates, feedback like yours is what improves our software!

Pros

Ease of use and how much it improves the processes that an Account Manager goes through each day.

Cons

There are some bugs that need work. The learning curve is rather steep.

Response from Aspire Software

Hi Chris! Thank you for your feedback. We're happy you're finding Aspire to be helpful to you and your organization. Like many robust systems, there's plenty to learn, but it's great to hear you're making it through the curve and seeing results!

Aspire Financial Area

Overall it has helped but the financial problems with us, them, the trining we received, whatever has me feling like a stepchild instead of one of the family. We pay a lot to have this; I want that problem fixed.

Pros

The pros are definitely the connectability of everything in one place. I am able to do much more work in half the time. Implementing this has cut my office staff which really adds to the bottom line. I was able to see waste by implementing Aspire through labor over usage, overall operations, and office staff. This made me make changes to all of these areas which has really added to our bottom line profits.

Cons

The financial section is very clunky. The journal entries or moving payroll over to quickbooks does not integrate easily. I would like to run on a Cash basis. This system is all accrual. I still have yet to be able to get accurate financials so I think my business is better but I can't gauge that yet. That to me is the most ridiculous and will have me leave Aspire if we can't get it fixed asap. I would rather have nothing then messed up financials.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

Thought it was the best cutting edge and had the most support to help us with shortfalls.

Response from Aspire Software

Lauren, thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your input and all comments are brought back to the team to help Aspire continue to evolve in order to further meet the needs of our users. We are pleased to hear your bottom line has improved since implementing Aspire and would like to offer further support to ensure you have clear, accurate financials you can trust. It looks like one of our customer success managers has been in touch already, and he will continue to work through any issues you are experiencing.

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.

Reasons 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.

Response from Aspire Software

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!

Aspire Software Review

After some trial and error, my overall experience with Aspire is good. I enjoy the fact that they are constantly improving and interested to hear what their customers would like to see.

Pros

I like the fact that everything is easily accessible and user friendly. They are also always improving the software to meet the needs of their clients. I believe once you learn the system, it is a really good software to use for our industry.

Cons

We went from one software to this software and it was extremely difficult to transition. We had many trials and errors within our first year in how to properly manage within the software in order to correctly reflect what are costs were and what we were earning.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

We made the switch because Sage was not as user friendly as we wanted. We wanted more streamlined processes instead of having to use several different modules to do one thing.

Response from Aspire Software

Kelli, thank you for your feedback! We value customer insight like yours and are pleased to hear you would recommend Aspire to others and that you find our software easily accessible and user-friendly. As you stated, we will continue to listen to our customers and improve our software to meet the needs of our users. Stay tuned for future updates!

Better than what we had. Ease of use could be better.

Pros

I like that Aspire encompasses all aspects of business. Very robust

Cons

Terminology is different than I am use to. Finding logical direction to navigate is off to me. I haven’t learned the muscle memory yet to do things quickly. I have to ask often.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

[SENSITIVE CONTENT] worked as a consultant for us for many years.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

Too many employee mistakes and lack of accountability

Response from Aspire Software

Hi Ted, thank you for your feedback! We're happy to hear that Aspire has cut down on mistakes and improved accountability in your business. We appreciate your comments on the different terminology and different navigation. Since the Aspire Landscape product and terminology is industry specific, we understand it can take time to adjust from a different solution. Your comments will be shared with the team.

Really like it so far!

Pros

Cons

Reasons for choosing Aspire

Better overall product, built to handle our growth and support was superior.

We didn’t have an all inclusive software in the past, getting everything into one place with a robust platform has been awesome.

Great Landscaping Software

Great customer care. They are always updating and listening to their clients. They are responsive and are always available to help. This software will be the go to in the future of landscaping companies.

Pros

The ease of use is great. We can train a new production worker in less than a day to be able to perform their daily tasks. New management can step right in and understand the basics within a week and takes them about a month to be able to function effectively in the program. Scheduling crews is great. Recurring work is easy to schedule for the year and the drag and drop is a great function. The software helps you not miss easy to miss work orders and invoicing. Reports are easy to pull up and be able to share with other team members. The ability to be able to work wherever we are. If we are out of town on a business trip we can still operate our normal jobs if needed.

Cons

Certain scheduling aspects would be nice to be able to duplicate with the click of a button. Ex: Scheduling out turf cares would be nice to be able to do this. Set the first round and then say schedule the remaining turf rounds in the same exact order.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

The overall functions and ease of use. The customer service and the people involved with the product. We knew they were and still are going to make it even better than it already is.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

We outgrew it and they were the dinosaur of scheduling. When we met with aspire to go over its functions and how it operates we were sold. We loved the features and just the people that were involved with the making of aspire. It was created with landscape professionals involved.

Response from Aspire Software

Brian, thank you for your feedback! We value customer insight like yours and are pleased to hear that Aspire has helped streamline day-to-day management, as well as training and reporting. We love input on how Aspire can adapt to better fit the needs of our clients and your comments on being able to duplicate scheduling aspects will be shared with the team.

Aspire is easy to use and very fast.

Awesome!

Pros

I can open Aspire and create a Proposal, print and or email it out to a client within 5 minutes, Really only took me the time to type the verbiage out. It was very easy to learn my way around and I love it.

Cons

I have to copy and print out each proposal and past it into the invoice section, so our managers can see what each invoice is for.

Don't Get Mad, Get Data

I love Aspire and would highly recommend it to anyone in the landscaping business; however, it's especially a great tool for scalable, profitable growth.

Pros

I love that the Aspire team operates in "Continuous Improvement" mode: they are always working to create a better product for the industry. Additionally, this software provides the platform to capture so much data that can then be used to help our company manage scalable, profitable growth.

Cons

Understanding the software was created for a specific industry, my least favorite aspect of Aspire is that a lot of accounting-type functions are either not great or missing altogether. Inventory specific reports are somewhat lacking; there's not an easy way to put accounts on "credit hold" until clients bring their account current; etc.

Reasons for switching to Aspire

We were looking to streamline functionality from multiple software platforms into one, industry-specific platform.

Response from Aspire Software

Kate, thank you for your feedback! We're pleased to hear you would recommend Aspire to others looking to achieve scalable, profitable growth. We are always honored to be a part of our client's success.

Great program!

Great experience so far. It is encouraging that the software is constantly improving also.

Pros

All inclusive! Constant improvement. A someone able to help with every aspect of your busiest as.

Cons

Somewhat obvious functions that would increase productivity are not in place, it is like they have thought of all of the really complicated stuff but some of the simple things are too complicated. Example - geo mapping / routing properties on daily routes based on their location/ efficiently or the ability to print multiple opportunities into one pdf. Aspire care is great, but it would be nice to have one single person be devoted to learning our processes and being available for consultation.

Great tool for a business owner

My experience with Aspire has been wonderful overall. The product is super solid and they are committed to making constant improvements. The support they offer their customers is first class and they are very responsive when problems do occur.

Pros

I love the visibility that Aspire gives me into the workings of my company. It allows me to keep an eye on all parts of the business from anywhere I have an internet connection. From sales and customer relationship management to job execution and invoicing. I can watch my progress through the month on a daily basis against my budget and am able to make adjustments quickly and easily.

Cons

The management of snow removal work still needs a little bit of work. It has improved greatly over the years but still needs to get better. I have another piece of software that is a very important tool for me and have asked for some access to cross functionality but Aspire has remained a closed ecosystem to all but its chosen partners.

Reasons for choosing Aspire

It fit our business model better as a maintenance heavy company and they were more responsive during the sales process.

Response from Aspire Software

Hey Joe, thank you for providing such great feedback on the Aspire platform. We value customer insight like yours and are pleased to hear that Aspire has helped gain visibility of your overall business operations. We're also very happy to hear of your experience with AspireCare as we strive to be supportive partners to our customers. We appreciate your feedback on integrations for snow and ice removal. As we continue to grow and improve Aspire, we are always working to make the system more user-friendly while growing functionality. If you have any more recommendations on how we can achieve that, please let us know!

Aspire has streamlined many facets of our landscape contracting business into one software.

Pros

Aspire has eliminated double entry of many items throughout the process of landscape contracting. The software has provided our company the ability to have real time access to information in a way we never had before. Like many landscape companies, we had been operating on several spreadsheet documents to operate our business. The move to Aspire allowed us to have all our information in one place that is readily available anywhere that we have an internet connection. The Aspire team is very responsive any time we have a problem or concern. Aspire was the step we needed to take in order to keep scaling our business and to get to the next level.

Cons

As with all software, there are bugs that pop up that can be frustrating at times. The software was originally designed for landscape maintenance, therefore sometimes we have to come up with creative ways to handle things for our landscape construction part of the business (though Aspire is working on solutions for many of these instances now).

Best grounds management software in existence; no one else is close

Reliable information for business management, ability to track activity and effectiveness of employees in all departments

Pros

It provides all the necessary job costing information necessary to run our organization properly. Great customer service and excellent commitment to regular updates and improvements.

Cons

There are still some improvements I'd like to see (permissions, pivot table functions), but I know they'll come along eventually. Really, no major complaints or frustrations.

I can manage more work with less time with Aspire.

Pros

Job management and bidding. Bidding jobs are fast and easy once you are set up. Having all your account information stored on the cloud in one spot makes managing the job simpler.

Cons

When posting materials to a ticket the drop down menu has issues. Sometime the material or the drop box opens on the bottom of the screen where you can't see it. Also when posting material to inventory its puts it for some reason in the wrong inventory account.

We Love Aspire

The level of support and assistance we’ve received has been exceptional. Our deployment schedule was aggressive, and most of our challenges at this point relate to gaps in training (or lack of retention).

Pros

The visibility it creates.l for branch management and it’s integrated features (qualified lead to estimating, estimating to tickets, tickets to scheduling & purchasing, and invoicing...)

Cons

Inability to put system controls in place to minimize mistakes, particularly related to mishandling tickets and selecting services within an estimate tied to the wrong division.

Aspire Review

Pros

The flow from proposal all the way through to invoicing.

Cons

it's not a true accounting software even paired with QuickBooks.

Response from Aspire Software

Darcy, thank you for your feedback! Many of our clients love having everything in one place and we are pleased the Aspire flow from proposal to invoicing works well for RM Landscape. The main goal of Aspire's accounting features is to provide real-time visibility for job costing and managing all business functions above the gross margin line, including invoicing and purchasing. Our integrations with accounting software like QuickBooks ensures the two communicate well together so you can trust your data.

Aspire is a fantastic tool for companies in the Landscaping industry. Love the Aspire team!

Better job costing data and the ability to track work orders which will hopefully eliminate missed Billings!

Pros

The team and the fact that the company is constantly innovating. The software has much of the necessary functionality for all sized Landscaping companies. The company has also been very flexible to meet our unique needs.

Cons

How hard it can be to change some of the data once it has been created and lack of API development to make it easy to link to all accounting packages.
