Owning and operating your business creates a lot of responsibility and stress. You must manage the planning, invoicing and maintaining the customer relationship while keeping track of equipment and teams. Toro Horizon360 software helps you better manage these tasks.
Whether you’re racing solo or managing multiple teams, Toro Horizon360 software gives you several key benefits. First, it provides an easy-to-use planning tool. This tool allows you to assign work, balance schedules, manage rain delays, reassign workers, reschedule tasks and prioritize jobs.
Then, it streamlines the estimation process with a suite of estimation tools. When the estimates turn into actual work, they are automatically entered into the system, all ready to be planned.
Toro Asset Tracker (140-4969)
Toro Horizon360 software also includes tracking devices. The Toro Asset Tracker (140-4969) is powered by the 12 V batteries already present in your mowers. This device is suitable for any equipment with a built-in 12 volt battery. It has an internal rechargeable battery that will recharge when your equipment is running. This internal battery and smart sleep algorithm provide accurate GPS data that won’t drain your gear’s battery when not in use.
These sync with the Horizon360 app on your phone or computer. Since they install directly into your equipment, they can track your equipment’s performance, location, start and end times, and equipment usage. Putting up a geofence around your client’s property allows you to see when your team is entering and leaving a job. All of this data can be monitored in real time.
