Crew Tools releases new app

The business management app was designed for landscape contractors and small businesses.

| November 22, 2013

Crew Tools announces the release of a new business management app designs for landscape contractors and similar small businesses. This is the first stage of a complete management system that operates on iPhones and iPads that allows landscape contractors and similar businesses to run their daily operations almost entirely from their smartphone or tablet, making time out of the office and out on the job more efficient and profitable. 

Creator Pete Logan, a landscape contractor himself, experienced a common issue with managing an offsite business through a main office; Running back and forth from desk to job site to create estimates, schedule jobs, scan and fax signed contracts, sending invoices and collecting payments. The lag time between speaking to a customer about their landscaping needs and signing on the dotted line added to the struggle to remain competitive. Feeling the need to streamline with the future of technology in mind, he created an app that manages each of those tasks.

With the Crew Tools app, job crews can easily look up their next site, get turn-by-turn directions, and view the scope of work from their iPhone or iPad. They can also keep the rest of the team updated with news, photos, and documents that easily store in the job files for reference at any time.

Future releases will provide integration with QuickBooks as well as enhanced multi-user functionality. Crew Tools app is now available in the Apple Store – more information is available at www.crewtoolsapp.com.
