Toro launched the Horizon app – a software program that can automate your billing system and helps you manually invoice.  

You can also communicate in real-time with your team through the app for job notes/photos, proof of service and scheduling, among other items.

“Our continued commitment is to put contractors in the driver seat to help manage the daily chaos flying at them from every angle,” says Dave Francis, senior marketing manager at Toro. “Horizon is built to streamline a contractor’s operation, but we put extreme focus on keeping the platform easy to use and implement. More importantly, Horizon was built to scale with contractors as they grow, from the start to finish of every day and every season.”

This cloud-based app holds contractor’s important business information in one place, including customer data, crew details, job schedules and much more. GPS technology allows contractors to provide remote job estimates, and geofencing lets you track your crew’s movements and ensure your equipment is where it’s supposed to be.

You don’t need to own Toro equipment to utilize the app, as it’s compatible with all brands.
Once your crew uploads the software’s app onto their phones, they log in using a secure 4-digit PIN number and they’re ready to go.

Toro is currently looking for contractors to beta test Horizon free for one year. For more information visit Toro’s website.
