Our Forever System

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

We were drawn to Aspire for its robust features and integrations with other systems we were already using, such as Quickbooks, Go iLawn, and others. With Aspire we've been able to streamline some of our processes and eliminate the need to copy information from one system to another. When looking at other systems, we couldn't find anything else that had all the features and capabilities of Aspire - CRM with email integration, estimating, scheduling, invoicing, job costing, timekeeping, payroll, and more. With all these features already built-in, we knew Aspire was going to be our forever software. It had the features we needed now to help us grow, and the built-in processes that will be crucial to maintaining efficiency with higher sales and more crews.

Cons

A major disadvantage to Aspire is their app - it kinda sucks. The features within the app are very limited. However, we understand that Aspire is working on developing a new and improved app that will hopefully be rolling out within the next year. Also, the implementation process is tough, especially for a small company that doesn't have a person, or team of people, who can devote themselves to learning...

Vendor response

Brenna, thank you for such a detailed review. Really, it helps everyone when you leave such helpful comments. We are humbled and full of gratitude that you and the team would refer to Aspire as your "Forever System". Makes us very proud. And, we are forever looking for ways to improve and grow our solution as well! Love to see that you are taking advantage of the full breadth of features and...

Best Choice by Far

Reviewed 5 months ago

It has been a great experience; we have had some hiccups along the way. But after attending Ignite conference it really opened our eyes to how much potential this software has and what it truly is capable of.

Pros

I love that it puts all of our customers into one database and allowed for us to be able to see real time data on performance of jobs. It has been such a great switch for our company and helped our company start to be able to realize things that we need to change in order to be more profitable across the board.

Cons

I would say that the ease of learning how to do things in Aspire there is a little bit of a learning curve. I do know we have a lot of employees that are not necessarily tech savvy, and they have had a hard time catching on how to utilize the software.

Milosi - Finance Manager

Reviewed 2 years ago

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.

Software Solutions for the Modern Age

Reviewed 5 months ago

It's involved a complete culture shift at our company, and it has not been an easy transition. Getting everyone 100% on board is still a challenge after 2 years. Aspire has many checks and balances, but there are certainly workarounds. With the help of some outside consultants and a wonderful CSM, we are finally on the right track. The rapid growth of Aspire offers many benefits such as an ever-expanding list of company partnerships for GPS integration, payroll integration and more.

Pros

All encompassing software that limits the amount of work you have to do in other programs. The rapid expansion means there are constant improvements made, and the community is very helpful. I enjoy the amount of control I have over different aspects of our business, from creating custom layouts for proposals and invoices, to managing required fields. It's not perfect, but it is certainly getting there. After changing software numerous times over the years, it is comforting to know we are sticking with Aspire for the long term.

Cons

Little things that are thankfully being improved upon. The mobile application feels antiquated and makes the lives of the crews difficult at times. I also really dislike how T&M pricing hierarchy is calculated. Why would it pull from the catalog pricing even though you change the amount on the purchase receipt? That's like if it just took the estimated hours and charged for them instead of the actual hours on site. It is counterintuitive and illogical for a time and material invoice type.

Best software for money in this space

Reviewed 5 months ago

Excellent. The staff are very supportive and helpful and seem to actually care about their work and getting answers. The system is maintained and constantly improving. This is clearly a smart company that cares about what they're doing.

Pros

It's intuitive and understands my specific needs. It also covers the whole lifecycle of the company, from sale through operations to billing.

Cons

I like Aspire a lot, but I would like a bit more of a QA component to work with so we could use it entirely across the company.

Must Have System for Landscaping Services

Reviewed 5 months ago

Tremendous!!! I have loved creating processes and procedures to better analyze data in order to make educated decisions that impact the success of our businesses.

Pros

Never ending improvements to help our industry become more efficient in data input and analysis.

Cons

CRM-Need more visualization and allow reporting based upon P&L sales as opposed to individual performance. Some Filters and Displays need to be added to List functionality to reduce the need to export into other systems.

Vendor response

Mike - Thank you for taking the time review Aspire and share your positive experience with us. Really appreciate it. We love getting product feedback and look forward to serving our customers. Thanks!

Aspire Review

Reviewed a year ago

Overall it has been great. Only been on for about a year and I feel like we are utilizing about 30% of it's capacity.

Pros

Cloud based, all aspects of the business are in one place and can be accessed from anywhere. Connectivity with field operations is fantastic. Amount of data that can be pulled out of it is amazing. Job costing is super easy. Contract renewals take only minutes to execute.

Cons

The system is so robust it takes a long time to get familiarized with everything. Implementation is difficult and takes a lot of time. For smaller companies, the lack of a dedicated account manager to help with implementation can be frustrating. Layout change request take way too long.

Vendor response

Mike - Thank you so much for the detailed review and sharing your positive experience. We are always open to feedback and new ideas as well, so don't hesitate to share. We recently launched Pro Services, which will help us speed up custom layouts, as well as Web Report Designer, which allows you to customize reports. We know there's a lot to learn on Aspire, but hopefully you're aware of our learning events, like Year One Journey, on-going Accounting training, and other live sessions. Thank you for the review!

Best Landscaping Software

Reviewed 7 months ago

Personally in the accounting arena, I have loved the ease of invoicing. Tracking time and running payroll is much easier than the old system we had been using.

Pros

We were always struggling to do job costing using Excel and QuickBooks and now the information is all contained in the opportunity. The invoicing saved so much time and has significantly improved our cash flow.

Cons

The integration and switch over were intense but the Aspire team was there to help with any questions and their training was great. I think there are little gripes with all software but the benefits far out way any issues we have encountered.If you don't hire people with strong computer skills, they may struggle a little.

Reviewed a year ago

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.

We've had great help with the customer service. It takes patience to learn a new technique, and Aspire's team has been more than helpful.

Pros

I enjoy gaining the information as it happens. Being able to know where the crews are and what their availability is, is crucial for scheduling.

Cons

The mobile app has its moments when it can't be reached due to service not being available.

Great Landscaping Software

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Vendor response

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. Stay tuned for future updates, feedback like yours is what improves our software!

Landscape Maintenance Business Review

Reviewed a year ago

Implementation was great, if a little limited in terms of introducing us to advanced features. The product itself is the best service delivery software I have ever seen in this industry! We are getting even more benefit from the software now that we are working with a 3rd party consultant.

Pros

I can document commitments to clients, assign them to my employees, and track their follow-through which helps me build trust with my clients. I can track my company and employee's progress toward their financial goals quickly and easily. We build consistent, objective estimates for our work that help improve our profitibility.

Cons

We are working with a 3rd party consultant to help us better understand how to use certain features of Aspire which has been helpful. I feel this is a service that Aspire could have helped us with better but if these types of services were available from Aspire, I was unaware.

Vendor response

Will - Thank you for leaving such a positive review and plenty of specifics for others to read through. Much appreciated! Love hearing how valuable and useful the different modules of our platform help run the business. We love our partners and consulting agencies who support the Aspire platforms - many have been with us from the beginning. We do offer a wide-range of continuing services for specific engagements/deliverables, as well as consulting and educational engagements. You can always inquire and check them out. Thank you again for such a great review!

Aspire is great, but the support team needs more support!

Reviewed 5 months ago

Aspire is an awesome product, but you need to figure out why the support team is lacking so much. I suppose most people dont know, since you need admin access to contact them. At least figure out why bulk uploads are slower than manual uploads, and remove the "request zoom call" option if no one will honor it. It just looks bad. Why cant there just be a "Bulk Upload" option usable by admins in the web application instead of going through support?

Pros

It is the future of landscaping!

Cons

The support team is very slow, often replies in incomplete or gramatically incorrect scentences which makes it very hard to receive any instructions. At least get the support team the "Grammarly" app. And not once has the "request zoom call" option ever been honored. It also takes 2 weeks to start a bulk import (they have to escalate it), and then another 2 weeks for them to tell me its been done. The bulk upload is also very limited in what can be updated. In every case, it was actually quicker to do everything by hand instead of waiting for support. It's as if the support team is actually doing those "bulk uploads" by hand....

Very happy with the program overall, tech support is lacking due to growing pains and the knowledgeable people being promoted within the company.

Having everything from bidding to billing on one platform has made a huge difference in our ability to job cost and see where we are making money and where we needed to improve.

Cons

There's a learning curve but the number of options outweighs that.

Aspire is invaluable to my business. I can't imagine how difficult it would be run the business without this tool. The transparency, reporting, data management and customer support make this as important a piece of my company as any one of my employees.

Pros

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.

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.

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.

Aspire is a pretty comprehensive and reliable product!

Reviewed 5 months ago

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.

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

Commit, Persist and Realize the Benefits of Aspire

Reviewed 6 months ago

The customer service and assistance that you receive from the team at Aspire is the best feature of the software. We receive responses immediately to questions, layouts, and general assistance. Aspire also offers additional live training classes with Q&A sessions weekly that you can attend, making this software worth the investment.

Pros

After using the software for approximately 6 months, our entire team began to see all the time-saving benefits of using Aspire as well as the benefits of "real-time" accounting and job profits.

Cons

For us, the transition to Aspire was difficult because we switched from Sage to QB and changed our payroll carrier at the same time we moved to Aspire. This was a mistake on our part because there was too much to implement in a short period of time. The training period for Aspire is set, and there is little room for accommodations for extending the time period if needed. Once you commit to using Aspire, you need to be aware that you have to make learning the system a priority within the timetable that is set.

Great at what we need it for

Reviewed 9 months ago

Aspire is innovative and best in class for the critical functions. I am confident they will continue to provide updates to the product.

Pros

Job costing, estimating/pricing, systemizing sales and production. Great data. It is scalable and a true enterprise solution.

Cons

All of the accounting functions are cumbersome, yet powerful. There is a sharp learning curve. Only part of the software is available on mobile. Site audits and client communication are somewhat limited.
