Our firm is working on a landscape design and we've been asked to do an area similar to what you see in these photos below – with the dark/tinted/black "stream bed" in the center and various size lights within it. Not sure how they did any of that in these original photos. But if you were going to re-create this, how would you do it? I can't tell if that's a chamber underneath like a tinted plexiglass and there are just some sort of small lights down below. Or whether the lights are embedded…

Aspire launches new version, introduces new logo

Aspire deployed a new version of its software on May 28. Major updates in Aspire v5.6 include estimating, scheduling and invoicing enhancements to further expand the functionality of the Master Schedule of Values, streamline scheduling and optimize the invoicing process.

Complete details of all improvements will be provided to Aspire customers in the release notes.

In a recent update, Aspire introduced the concept of Master Schedule of Values for Fixed Price, Open Billing Work Orders, providing users with a centralized schedule of values sheet for each project. With this release, the company improved upon this. Users can now create a negative line item directly inside the Master Schedule of Values (SOV) when they create/win a change order that has a negative value.

Once the Master SOV is ready for invoicing, users will navigate to the Invoicing Assistant and proceed as normal. The negative Master SOV line item will appear along with the positive items.

Work Orders and T&M per Service Invoices

Now users can add a new invoice type to their Fixed Price, Open Billing (FPOB) opportunities on a service. By clicking into the service on the estimate (base estimate or change order), the user can select a new invoice type of “T&M per service”. The service will operate like any other T&M service but now fits into the FPOB workflow. Once a T&M service is complete, it will appear inside the Invoicing Assistant as ready to invoice for the opportunity. Users can invoice these services alongside the Master Schedule of Value line times from the original work order.

Schedule an Event: Opportunity Tag Now Available

Opportunity tags can help sort and organize in Aspire. This data field is now exposed in the “Schedule an Event” grid to help increase accuracy and efficiency when creating a schedule in bulk using this feature.

Auto-Expenses: Additional Invoice Types

Last year, Aspire rolled out a new Auto-Expenses functionality that allows users to create material and hours for their subs that changes based on the agreed-upon price. The new release has expanded this functionality to pull in more invoice types.

Multi-Visit Services Hours and Material Quantities

For multi-visit services, users can now set default values for both the hours and material quantities that appear in the Visit Detail screen as well as the Crew Mobile app. This improvement will eliminate the need to remember specific amounts and reduce time spent on data entry for services that require large material counts upfront for use in smaller quantities over the service’s lifecycle. 

Attach Proposal to Emailed Invoices

Users can now choose to attach proposals to the same email when sending invoices. The system will use the correct layout, even if multiple exist, or will allow the user to select one if it was never set.

 

The company also recently released a new logo. The logo is the first of many updates the company is making.

Soon, customers will see other updates the company is making to the Aspire brand, from company marketing materials and support documents to the website. Aspire’s product team is currently designing a new Aspire user interface that will improve user experience while maintaining functionality.

Davey Tree partners with Certified Employee-Owned

From tips on do it yourself projects to how to keep your lawns green we push to cover the entire gambit of every homeowner’s landscaping needs.

<![CDATA[

KENT, Ohio – The Davey Tree Expert Company recently announced that it has partnered with Certified Employee-Owned (Certified EO), a certification program for employee-owned companies in America.

"As one of the oldest employee-owned companies in North America, Davey Tree is excited to partner with Certified EO,” said Pat Covey, Davey’s chairman, president and CEO. “Employee ownership is a big part of our culture, and we’re anxious to begin working with Certified EO and their members to bring more attention to the benefits of employee ownership.”

To become a member of Certified EO, companies must pass a certification process to demonstrate that their employees own at least 30 percent of the business (exclusive of company founders), access to ownership is open to every employee, and the concentration of ownership is limited. Fewer than one in 200 American companies are eligible to join Certified EO.

“We’re thrilled to have Davey Tree as our newest member,” said Thomas Dudley, CEO and co-founder of Certified EO. “We’re very aligned on values and recognize that employee ownership is good for workers, good for business, and good for communities. As an employee-owned company, Davey Tree is a pillar of their community and at the forefront of creating an economy that works for everyone.”

The Davey company had been established, owned and managed by the Davey family almost entirely since its founding in 1880, but in the late 1970s, the family decided to sell the company. Almost immediately, an employee-ownership committee was created and met with the family to explore the possibility of the employees purchasing the company.

On March 15, 1979, a financial commitment was made by 114 employees who participated in a direct purchase of stock. To make the acquisition possible, the company redeemed thousands of shares of stock but reserved some to be sold to the newly created Davey Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). More than 400 employees participated in the initial ESOP, and these combined efforts are what made the employee acquisition a reality 40 years ago.

Today, Davey is one of the oldest and the 9th-largest employee-owned company in the United States, according to the National Center for Employee Ownership. Since 1979, the company’s revenues have grown from roughly $60 million to more than $1 billion, and the number of employees has gone from 2,800 to over 10,500. Additionally, the market value of the company’s shares increased from more than $7 million to over half a billion today. Covey said much of the growth is due to Davey’s employee-owners’ passion for providing solutions that exceed client expectations.

“Employee-ownership has focused and united our teams throughout North America,” Covey said. “It has proven to be glue that binds us together during difficult times, and it is core to all of our successes. It is who we are."

<![CDATA[

For the 2021 model year, Kawasaki introduces three new models thoughtfully tailored to meet industrial or commercial job site requirements. These models are designed for government or fleet customers that operate any size fleet of side x sides and are looking for features that enhance the capabilities of their fleet vehicles. They include the two-row, six-passenger MULE PRO-DXT EPS FE; the two-row, four-passenger MULE 4010 Trans4x4 FE; and the single-row, two-passenger MULE 4010 4X4 FE.

Every MULE FE model includes multiple accessories as standard equipment, requiring fewer modifications to service the needs of these customers. They feature a plastic roof, high visibility orange seat belts, horn and a universal key. Additionally, FE models are delivered in a bright white color, allowing the customer to easily add their logo.

The MULE PRO-DXT EPS FE features Kawasaki’s Trans Cab system that quickly transforms the spacious six-person, two-row cab to a single row, three-passenger machine with a steel floor bed, capable of handling 1,000 pounds of cargo. It is powered by a powerful 993cc three-cylinder diesel engine mated to a smooth CVT transmission with a 2,000-pound towing capacity, has four-wheel independent suspension, a 92.3” wheelbase, and speed-sensitive Electronic Power Steering (EPS).

The two-row, four-passenger MULE 4010 Trans4x4 FE is powered by Kawasaki’s 617cc V-twin engine with electronic fuel injection and can tow 1,200 pounds. It features a large steel cargo bed that can haul up to 800 pounds in the two-person configuration, electronic power steering and an all-new steel rear screen.

The single-row, two-passenger MULE 4010 4X4 FE is powered by Kawasaki’s 617cc V-twin engine and equipped with a large (46.3” x 56.1” x 11.2”) steel cargo bed. This workhorse is a valuable tool with a 6.3-gallon fuel tank and is easy to operate with durable mechanical controls as well as the all-new steel rear screen.

The entire MULE FE lineup is assembled in Lincoln, Nebraska, from domestic and imported parts and is built to be the hardest worker on the jobsite. The Fleet Edition MULE models will be available in July 2020 and feature the Kawasaki STRONG three-year limited warranty.

Thanks It needs a little work but happy with my purchase, only paid 750. So I’m fine with putting another few hundred even if necessary.
Originally agreed with seller on 1300, however it would not start and I found a sloppy spindle also. So the seller did the right thing and asked if I’d take it for 750. I jumped on it taking a gamble on the hydros being ok.
Going to pull carb first thing this afternoon, suspect float stuck as…
