Since 2004, Jagusch Lawn Care has been serving North Branch, MN and surrounding areas. The owner, Dustin Jagusch, started with just himself and a truck and has grown the business to over a dozen employees. They provide maintenance, fertilization, irrigation, and dock in/out services.
As their business grew, it created challenges. "Everything was in my head," says Dustin. The amount of paper needed to communicate with his crews was overwhelming and often the message was lost. Monthly billing was extremely painful. Dustin would take all the paper route sheets, decipher the crew information, and transfer this to another form to total up the visits for each customer. This was a full and frustrating two days of work. He needed a solution fast.
"I looked at different software a few years back that had great inventory management, but it was too complicated for employees and not necessary at our volume," says Dustin. "It was too complicated for monthly invoicing as well."
By adopting Crew Control, Dustin didn't have to re-invent what he was doing or his current processes. He made it digital. Crew Control was simple and easy to get up and running. He was able to send test schedules to his crew leaders within a day of signing up. Real schedules followed within a few days allowing crew leaders to clock in and see valuable information. It worked great for their dock in/out services!
Dustin can now see where his crews are working in real time instead of calling them on the phone. He can check their notes throughout the day and make changes to the interactive route sheet as needed. Dustin anticipates his monthly billing will be reduced from two full days to only 4-5 hours with a office help doing most of it.
For Jagusch Lawn Care, the highlight of using Crew Control is its ease of use and simplicity. Frustrating and time-consuming issues are resolved with little effort.
