The next generation of the Benchmarking Your Business Report gives contractors a powerful planning tool.

| April 13, 2013

CLEVELAND – Lawn & Landscape has released a new app designed to help landscape contractors and lawn care operators better benchmark their companies against their competition.

The Benchmarking Your Business Report and the companion app, both sponsored exclusively by Exmark, draw on extensive data Lawn & Landscape collected throughout the year from its national readership. Taken together, the report and app give contractors powerful tools to guide their business and plan for 2013.

The web app, an extension of the 2012 Benchmarking Your Business Report published in November, allows contractors to quickly see where they stack up against their regional and national colleagues when it comes to purchasing, rates of pay, revenue and overall scale of business.

You can access the app via any web-enabled device – your laptop, tablet or phone at bit.ly/benchmarkapp. The printed version of the report can be found at www.lawnandlandscape.com, clicking "current issue" on the left and going to the Novemeber 2012 issue.
