Peter Drucker, the celebrated management consultant, is credited
with coining the phrase, “whatever gets measured gets improved.”
This is so true in our lawn and landscape businesses as well; particularly
with regard to our largest expense — labor. The dilemma for most landscape
companies is how to measure the labor, simply and accurately.
Well there is a way, so let’s look in on the Harvesters as they talk with
Mike Cossins, president of BOSS software. You see this software
is all a landscape company needs from “soup to nuts” as they say,
no matter the size of your company. The beauty of this software is
that it helps companies measure the profitability of the company not
just by the month, but every day for every crew!
Harvester Ed said he was reviewing the financials with one of his
clients for the period between January 2020 and October 2020 as
compared with the same time period for this year. The company’s
gross margin improved significantly and their net profit was double
over the year before. Harvester Ed asked his client what caused his huge
improvement (now he already knew but wanted to hear it from his
client) and he said without a doubt, BOSS software!
So, after watching the video, check The BOSS out so you can,
Harvest Your Potential and that just may mean much larger profits.
