Arbour Landscape Solutions launches new web feature
MD of Arbour Landscape Solutions, Richard Bickler still has nightmares about running a landscaping business and contacting 20 or more suppliers about prices and availability of materials for each project. Which is why he has teamed up with ace website developers, Upshot Media to build the My Bill of Quantities feature for his landscaping supplies website.
The principal is simple - and even better, it’s incredibly easy to use. All you need is a trade login for the Arbour Landscape Solutions website, which takes two minutes to arrange and costs nothing, and a bill of quantities in electronic form.
Upload your BOQ to the Arbour Landscape Solutions website and the team will source and price all of the products for you. Your uploaded Bill of Quantities will be processed, priced and in your inbox within one working day. You can request prices for standard landscaping materials and bespoke products at the same time. If the team are unable to source the exact materials within your delivery timeframe, they will suggest an alternative product from the Arbour Landscape Solutions range.
From My Bill of Quantities to your landscaping site
To save you even more time, My Bill of Quantities links seamlessly to the ordering facility on the Arbour Landscape Solutions website.
The completed pricing schedule will be emailed to you and also uploaded to your personal dashboard on the website in the form of a quote. Each quote is valid for 30 days and can easily be edited by adding or deleting products, or by changing quantities.
The quoting system on this incredibly versatile website, also allows you to collaborate with team members. So a garden designer could pass the quote onto their project manager. A landscaper could run the quotation past the designer or a procurement manager could pass responsibility for ordering onto a landscaping team leader.
When your landscaping build gets underway, all you need to do is click on one button to convert your quote into an order and have all of your materials delivered to site when you need them.
