Pittsburgh, Pa. – October 12, 2017 – ProfitLion, a sales, operations, business and financial management software system designed specifically for the Green Industry will debut at the 2017 GIE+Expo in Louisville, KY.
Developed by a team of industry veterans who have collectively spent decades on both the consulting and management sides of landscape contracting businesses, ProfitLion was created to address the unique business needs landscape companies face daily. Primary among the daily challenges are extensive paperwork and an inability to match cost and data estimates with actual figures in real-time.
ProfitLion President, Steven Bach notes, “In order for a landscape contractor to be profitable, they must be able to closely manage both material and labor costs – the latter of which can be difficult given that the workforce is predominately mobile. Historically, this has included significant paperwork on the part of the crews who submit material tracking and time worksheets, followed by in-office data entry and the eventual generation of reports to measure activity. This is a time-consuming process, the delay of which can be costly to a contractor,” he said.
ProfitLion aims not only to eliminate the multiple steps via a single system but also to provide a window on real-time data across all departments within a company. This integrated system allows the landscape contractor’s team to be more efficient because they have an unobstructed view of work as it moves from sales through delivery to billing.
“An integrated system means that a view of the sales pipeline will allow operations to be better prepared for incoming work from a materials and scheduling standpoint. Crews will be able to see man-hour allotments and better manage their time because they understand their impact on the budget. Account and Project Managers will better be able to communicate with clients and manage crews because they can anticipate overages or inefficiencies as they are occurring, instead of after the work has been completed. General Managers and owners will be able to more closely monitor company sales, revenue, and profitability numbers, eliminating the guesswork and end of year surprises that often occur,” Bach explained.
ProfitLion features include a mobile app, routing, labor and materials management, in-depth reporting, a customizable dashboard and email marketing capabilities. The software is ideal for small and mid-size contractors who may not already have a system in place, or who might be using something one- dimensional such as a customer relationship management system or financial management software. Bach shared that the development team is already at work on future releases to enhance the Profit Lion system, among them the ability to integrate with Quick Books, along with financial planning and allocation add-ons that will support landscape business owners in both strategic planning and end-of- year close.
ProfitLion will be exhibiting in booth 28094 at the 2017 GIE+Expo, Oct. 19-20 in Louisville.
