    Hi Louise, please forgive me for a bit of shameless self-promotion here.  Groundleader is software specifically designed for UK grounds-maintenance firms.  We designed it originally to run our own business on, with a view to making it available to others.  You can have as many users as you like at no extra cost, so your whole team can access it anytime, anywhere.

    A few of Groundleader's features:

    - Access on a browser, or Android / Apple iOS.
    - Gather visit "evidence" if required, such as photos / signatures / GPS.
    - Give your customers and subcontractors a login.  Generate subbie valuations.
    - Suitable for snow-clearing, grass-cutting, landscaping etc, charge at varying hourly-rates, or on a fixed price, apply discounts, etc.  Profit analysis.
    - Spraying reports.
    - Powerful variety of scheduling options.
    - Compatibility with accounting packages.
    - Support from a UK firm.  Designed by experienced UK contractors, for UK contractors.
    - Free at the cheapest price-point, so you can try it for free.  And, there happens to be a half-price offer on just now (up to the end of this month) for the first year's subscription to the paid-for tiers.
    - Helps you manage lone-workers, using the app's built-in lone-worker alert functionality (raises alarm phone calls and emails if crew fail to check in), and shift-start alarms (e.g. if they fail to start a night-time gritting shift because they slept-in).
    - Many more features not listed here, and more features in the pipeline!
     
     
    Wishing you all the best for the summer season!  Cheers, Peter.
