Client Portal Project Tracking

In 2012, Five Seasons Landscape Management implemented a new web-based software, BOSS, to fully integrate all aspects of our business. This software allows us to better communicate, track data, invoice and schedule work from the start of the sales process all the way to project completion.

Our crews receive real time updates in the field via mobile alerts that let them know about schedule changes, client requests or any urgent issues that need handled. Our account managers can do real time site audits and send reports to clients letting them know how their sites look, updates on work performed and any issues that may need addressed.

Our goal is to be as transparent to our clients as possible and this software allows us to do so by providing a client Web-Portal into our system. As a client you will be able to see scheduled and completed work, with the ability to grade any work completed on our last visit. You can send issues or requests that will go directly to all parties involved in your account. Contracts and approved work orders will be available for you to see along with all invoices (paid or unpaid). Marketing material, industry and company news and updates are available for your viewing in this area as well. Plus, if you have a referral, you can send the information along in your portal as well.

In this ever changing, fast-paced world we live in, we at Five Seasons Landscape Management are dedicated to helping simplify your life by providing information at your fingertips anytime, and anywhere you may need it.

Winner in 2015:

Congratulations to Christen Wilcox, who was recipient of the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship at Columbus State Community College! This is what she and her professor, Steve O’Nail had to say:

“I am sincerely grateful to have been selected as the recipient of the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship. Receiving the scholarship will allow me to pay for my summer classes while participating in an internship at the same time. I will graduate in December from Columbus State Community College’s Landscape Design and Management program. As I complete my education, I am reminded constantly of the giving and inspiring nature of our industry and those who are a part of it. I would like to thank Five Seasons for supporting students and investing in the future of our industry. “- Christen Wilcox

“I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You” once again for the continuing support that Five Seasons has shown for our students. Today’s educational costs have far exceeded the projections of twenty years ago and students find it very difficult to obtain an education without a large debt as a result. It is through your kind contributions to the AEF and other financial support that helps to lessen that burden. Once again thank you on behalf of all of our faculty, staff and of course students.”- Steve O’Neil

 

 

 

Winner 2016:

Congratulations to Elena Andrews, who was recipient of the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship at Columbus State Community College! Here is a little bit of what she had to say:
“It is with great honor that I have been awarded the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship from the 2016 National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation. It has been a little over a year since I made the decision to switch careers from architecture to pursue my passion for landscape design. I enrolled in classes at Columbus State in the spring of 2015 and have embraced every opportunity that has crossed my path. The Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship is deeply appreciated on a financial level as a single mother working to pay for a new degree. But more importantly to me, is the validation and encouragement it gives me that I did make the right decision to change direction. I have been fortunate to be able to work part time as a landscape designer while in school and plan to open my own landscape design company, Spruce. I am grateful to Five Seasons for supporting students and their dreams.”- Elena

 

 

 

Winner 2017:

Congratulations to Greg Gilbertsen for winning the Columbus State Scholarship! Here is what Greg had to say about it:

Thank you very much for awarding me the Five Seasons Landscape Management Scholarship through the National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation scholarship program. As a father trying to support a family and gain a degree at Columbus State Community College, this award is very important to me as I am otherwise funding my education myself.

I am in the midst of changing careers and getting started in landscape design. Columbus State has a very good Landscape Design and Management Program and is well known in the industry. This is my second year in the program and I have found the instructors to be quite knowledgeable and classes to be interesting and challenging. I expect to graduate within the next couple of semesters and am looking forward to a rewarding career in the landscape industry. This scholarship will allow me to fund the remaining classes that I need to complete the degree.

But Don’t Take Our Word for it…

“Working with Five Seasons was a great experience . We had an idea to transform our back yard, which had a steep slope, to a patio with a gas fire pit. The design team and installer did a fabulous job. The final product was beyond our imagination . We have had several complementary comments from friends and neighbors.”

 

“Alicia, The whole landscape looks amazing. Everything turned out perfect. I am really happy and don’t know what else to say. I am glad we made the changes we did as we went through the different parts of the project. I am sure I will have more work for you to do next year. Thank you again.”

“Nick Peck called to say how pleased The Wyndham Park community is with the maintenance crew. A resident that is extremely hard to please and usually calls in to complain called Nick to say how happy he is with Five Seasons!”

 

“I want to acknowledge the wonderful mulching job this year’s crew did at Blendon  Chase. They had a system – were fast, neat, careful and the place looks great! Every resident that’s talked to the Board, and there have been many, has been complimentary of their work.”

 

“Per our conversation, all of us at CTV wish to thank the crews that have been taking such wonderful care of us during this very unusual winter weather.

I also want to mention that the owner of the company who rents our third floor stopped this morning to tell us how happy they were too at the excellent snow/ice removal that has been done.

Please express our THANK YOU to the several crews who have worked so hard to make it safe for all of us!”

“Ran into Trey who is in town from ATL and other Business Operations people with Cortland Partners at Brooks Edge. He thinks all the sites “look spectacular” and the flower installs are “top notch”. Thank you to all the people involved!”
