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.

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.

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)

Review Source: Capterra

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.

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.

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.
