ArboStar: The Premier CRM for Arborists

ArboStar goes beyond being just a program for arborists; it’s a comprehensive management solution built specifically for the tree care industry. It combines everyday task management with powerful business intelligence tools to help arborists gain insight into their operations and make informed decisions. Whether it’s managing client databases, job tracking, or financial reporting, ArboStar is a dedicated tool designed to optimize every aspect of an arborist’s business.

ArborNote provides useful features like job scheduling, quotes, and notably, the ability to work with maps and plan tasks on the map – these are their primary functions aimed at enhancing your operations.

However, while these features are valuable, ArborNote lacks some essential features that can make your day-to-day operations smoother, such as customizable forms, customer portals, and comprehensive job details. These missing elements can make a significant difference in the ease and efficiency of managing your tree care business.

On the other hand, ArboStar offers features like job scheduling, quote management, invoicing, job tracking, and payments – both from the office and in the field. What sets ArboStar apart is the ability to automatically process online payments, allowing your business to get paid faster and more efficiently. That’s why thousands of arborists trust ArboStar to manage their business operations.

To compare ArborNote vs. ArboStar, we’ll look at specific features and services each offers to determine which is best for running your arboriculture business.

What can ArboStar do vs. ArborNote?

Running an arboriculture business is challenging. Administrative and operational tasks can often stand in the way of delivering the best customer experience. You need a solution that ensures the entire job runs smoothly, from quotes and scheduling to payments.

ArboStar and ArborNote are both designed to assist you in managing your daily operations, but ArboStar offers features that are more tailored to the needs of tree care businesses. Here, we’ll delve into three essential features: online payments, job management, and customer support.

Online PaymentsBoth ArboStar and ArborNote provide online payment methods for your clients.ArborNote allows customers to pay online via credit cards but does not provide options for automatic payments for recurring work.

ArboStar, however, enhances customer convenience by accepting online payments via credit cards.

ArboStar’s instant payout feature even enables you to receive payments quickly, including on weekends and holidays, allowing you to better control your cash flow.

Job ManagementArboStar and ArborNote both offer job management features designed to help you deliver high-quality service to your customers. Both platforms provide project overviews, image uploads, and detailed notes for clear communication, whether you’re in the office or on-site.

ArboStar, however, takes it a step further by providing custom forms and checklists to ensure all jobs are carried out thoroughly and correctly. With ArboStar, you can also track additional client details, attach relevant files to quotes, jobs, and invoices, and manage all this information conveniently within the ArboStar app.

Customer Support

Key integrations include:

  • QuickBooks Online Advanced and QuickBooks Online. These accounting solutions save you time on bookkeeping, reporting, and financial management.
