Saving Precious Time Estimating & Closing Jobs "In The Driveway"

DJ Fouce went from taking 3 days to produce a quote, to taking only 5 min

“A lot of customers want a quote fast, the sooner the better. They’ll write a check right there on the spot if I can get them that quote. Now I don’t have to sit in the office for 2-3 hours after work, I go home to be with my family. That’s where I’m REALLY saving.”
DJ Fouce, owner of Foucescapes in Indiana

Brian Schmauder cut his estimating time by 80% and got his Saturdays back!

“The old school method of hand written estimates took 2 hours, and now takes 10-15 min in SynkedUP
Brian Schmauder, owner of DelRay Landscapes in Virginia

Elmer Fisher saved 20 hrs a month in estimating, he now reinvests that into his business & family

“Before SynkedUP I had no system. I went from taking a couple evenings per estimate, to now I just did a $100k estimate in 30 min

Elmer Fisher, owner of Potted Luck Landscaping in Pennsylvania

Alex Bulow freed up over 15 hrs a month to get back out in the field again

“Before SynkedUP I would spend about 20-30 hours a month doing estimates, after SynkedUP the time was cut in half. I freed up $2,500/mo worth of labor to put back into production. Compared to the cost of the software, that’s a no-brainer.”
Alex Bulow, owner of Inca Stone in Pennsylvania

Job Looks Awesome, but No Idea Whether You Made Money

job costing for landscapers - SynkedUP

Trey Chilcoat used to take 3-4 hours to job cost a job, now he can see it in real-time

“Our old job costing system was LMN, Quickbooks Projects, and paper and pen, and we’d never know the results until after the job was done. Now I know exactly where we are at any given point, which allows us to make decisions and react in real-time vs trying to figure out what we did 30 days ago.

Our Story

SynkedUP started with the need to “synkronize” our own landscaping company’s operations.

Have you ever lost money on a job and not known why?

That’s only one of many questions I could ask you. Questions that likely you and I both resonate with.

SynkedUP started forming as a vague pipe dream of an idea while we were onboarding onto a software to run our growing landscaping business.

And then we onboarded on to another.

And another.

The more softwares we tried, the more the SynkedUP idea started picking up steam. Every time we turned to the next offering on the market we became more frustrated. They all had their strong points, but none of them allowed us to comprehensively run our business; spanning roles from the guys out in the field to the book keepers in the office.

We were running one software to track our time and estimate jobs, but then after those jobs were done, that software didn’t have any job costing or invoicing. So we were running yet two more softwares for those activities. And the scheduling and CRM tools greatly lacked, so… we ran yet another software for those functions.

Get the picture? You might be living this scenario right now.

We wanted to solve this issue in the worst way. We were wasting so much time trying to keep data in all these various softwares updated and current. They didn’t talk to each other. Everything was painstakingly manual. We got serious about this SynkedUP idea, and began holding meetings with our team, bringing in other experts to gain insight. And we started on an endeavor that turned in to way more than we ever anticipated.

As we started planning and developing a custom software platform to synkronize (see the pun? ?) our landscape company’s operations, we paused….

We thought to ourselves, we are not special. We are just a regular landscaping company trying to efficiently run our business. There’s got to be others out there just like us.

And there is. You.

So we rolled up our sleeves, committed to the vision, and flew in to this project with the passion that comes from believing there is a better way.

It was 2016 when we first started developing this software. And now, we have been becoming not only more efficient in our own business, but also more profitable in our own business, by using SynkedUP during the last 4 years. Behind that login screen there is a growing team of developers from all over the world, support staff, and a group of users that are thrilled with the impact that SynkedUP has had on their companies. People just like you.

At the end of the day, we all want the same thing.

A way to make a living that doesn’t rob us of our “life”.
Enable our employees to grow and have great tools to do their job.
We want to hit our financial goals. And when we don’t, we need to know why.
Not lose sleep over the craziness going on at work. We want a system and a process that can be followed with ease.
Our team working in harmony.

That. Right up there. That’s what SynkedUP is and does. It’s what we live and breath.

We are a tool that allows you to take control of your business, your processes, and get your team SynkedUP.
