SHAWNEE, Kan. - Service to Mobile provides mobile apps to lawn and landscape businesses. Each mobile app provides services offered, one touch dialing or emailing to the business, an estimate request form and the ability to send push notifications alerting customers of promotion or specials. More features are also offered.

"With our mobile app, a lawn and landscape business can provide the customer with the ability to take a photo of a part of their yard that needs improvement and send it through the estimate request form to the business. The more information a business can collect from the customer, the better chance they'll have at closing the deal." said Jacinta Hoyt, CEO of Service to Mobile.

The mobile apps are available for iPhone and Android phones. Pricing starts at $499 and covers app setup and submission to the Apple and Google application stores. There is a low monthly fee that covers hosting, unlimited downloads, and programming updates for iOS and Android software.
