Fertilization/IPM/Turf Care in SingleOps 

SingleOps makes it easy to manage fertilization in SingleOps. Use the tools below for easy scheduling, fast estimating and accurate chemical and weather tracking.

Estimating & Scheduling

Custom Visit Frequency

Custom visits generated based on the number entered per month simplify and expedite the proposal process for the Sales Rep. They allow flexibility in scheduling based on seasonality. 

Property Measurements

Let SingleOps make estimation easy by measuring square/linear footage right from the map. 
Learn more about Property Measurements here.

Production Rates

  • Turf Care: Production rates can calculate how much chemical the applicator needs to use, depending on the square footage entered.
  • IMP: Production rates calculate the perimeter of the infected area using linear footage.

Job Templates

Job Templates speed up estimation by pre-filling standard info for your reps. Do you offer a program with 3,5,7, etc. rounds? Preload your item groups with materials and pricing. All your reps need to do is add measurements, save and send the estimate. 

Learn more about job templates here. Plus and Premier Tier only. 

Route Memorization

Makes scheduling easy by remembering your crew's route.

Chemical and Weather Tracking

Item Groups

Using item groups allows you to track quantities of materials being used, speeds up estimating and can allow tracking of chemicals for regulation. Most Fert/IPM/Turf visits encompass 3 parts and each Item Group should have an item to reflect these:

  • Service being performed
  • The labor (time spent) of the applicator
  • The materials used on the job

Learn more about item groups here.

Custom Inputs

Create a job level custom input called Square Feet. This will allow you to take advantage of property measurements and production rates. Create an item level custom input for EPA #.
Learn more about Custom Inputs here.

Weather Information

Enable weather data in account settings to log weather data on job/visit completion.

Update Work Order Document Template

Update your Work Order Document Template to include the EPA # and actual quantity custom inputs as columns. You can also populate weather data to the work order.
