Our reports will provide your grounds team information such as where to prioritise works and how much chemical treatment to purchase.
Easily communicate tasks and responsibilities via the online management interface. All images can be split into polygons and these can be allocated to individual team members ensuring responsibilities are clear and efficient working processes are adhered to.
Each team member will have a clear picture of the scale of the problem, the exact amount of materials required and where partial closures are necessary.
Images taken over time can be overlaid to compare progress and development of areas of concern. See detailed overviews of weed growth, drainage and pest infestation over time and make informed course management decisions.
Course maps can be used for marketing materials, staff training and to assess any shifting of ground areas over time.
