How to measure a property with Attentive.ai?
Measuring a property is easy with Attentive.ai. You just need to enter the property address, confirm the lot boundary, and approve take-off. That’s it, 3 easy clicks are all it takes and you will have the auto-generated property report straight in your inbox.
For a detailed explanation of the process, read on:
If you haven’t already, first, create an account on the platform. This will lead you to the homepage.
Enter the property address: Click on Create to enter the address of the property you wish to measure, and we will look it up.
The pre-loaded government parcel data will show you the lot boundary in blue. Using the ‘Edit’ feature, you can edit the lot boundary as per your needs.
Once done with editing the lot boundary, hit save and we’re ready to go. Attentive.ai software will now measure the following features which you can see once the report is ready:
You can see the total cost of your take-off, estimated time, and lot size. Now, decide the type of report you’d like to create as per your requirements. You have 4 options to choose the standard takeoff type:
Now simply click on the Confirm Lot Boundary and Review Takeoff button and you are good to go. You will get a summary that will look like this:
And that’s it, folks, that’s all you need to do in order to measure a property with Attentive.ai. No more drawing polygons. No more manual measurement.
At last, the takeoff output itself
Let’s have a look at the auto-generated property takeoff.
You can view the takeoff from 5 different sides (East, West, North, South, Top) by clicking on ‘Side Views’ at the bottom.
You can even customize your takeoff in multiple ways, all of which we talk about in detail in this article.
Attentive.ai also gives you the option to add up to 10 properties in the queue for measurement. This means now you can feed all your commercial properties in the system at night, and before you come back in the morning, the majority of your estimation work will be done.
How to export the output?
Attentive.ai gives you the option to export your output in 4 formats: PDF, Excel, JPEG, and via a shareable link. They are all useful in different ways, but the shareable link is the most convenient of them all.
This means once you are done measuring a property, you can share the output with your ground team instantly. This makes it easier for your estimators and sales representatives to collaborate with your on-site crew.
How does this impact your business?
We understand that property measurement is the most tiring and error-prone step in the estimation process. There’s a tremendous hidden cost that lies in manual property measurements. But important outcomes, such as bid pricing, bid conversion, and job profitability, all depend on the accuracy of these measurements.
Currently, sales/account managers do this job using outdated tools like Go iLawn and Google Maps. These platforms fetch the property image and pass on the rest of the work to the users.
With Attentive.ai, you get to take away this manual work from your teams, so they focus on one thing that really matters – GROWTH.
What makes this even more exciting is that it we are able to do all this, while saving you precious dollars. By saving up to 90% of the time spent on property measurement using traditional methods, Attentive.ai can save significant amounts of working capital for your landscaping business.
In short, Attentive.ai cost is outweighed by the time it saves for your employees.
