Robin Autopilot and Lawn Buddy launch new solution
The Robin Autopilot fleet management system for robotic mowers will now be fully integrated with Lawn Buddy's app. Robin Autopilot, a robotic mowing and robots-as-a-service (RaaS) company, has teamed up with Lawn Buddy to launch a new offering that integrates RaaS with Lawn Buddy's lawn and landscaping business management software. The Robin Autopilot fleet management system for robotic mowers will now be fully integrated with Lawn Buddy's app allowing users to track robo mowers on the job, monitor robo ware, and connect business owners to their Lawn Shop, where users can access wholesale pricing on parts needed for repair. The combination of Lawn Buddy's web and mobile-based software with Robin Autopilot's multi-manufacturer platform, which includes RaaS hardware and software, proprietary products such as robotic doors, and total-solution financing, marketing, training and other support, will enhance the ability of landscape service providers to have everything they need to run a profitable and growing RaaS business. "This is a milestone for the advancement of robots-as-a-service in the lawn maintenance and landscaping industry," said Logan Fahey, Chief Executive Officer of Robin Autopilot. "Now, our users will be able to take advantage of the benefits of Lawn Buddy technology to virtually manage their crews in the field, simplify the invoicing process, and improve customer relationship management. We are pleased to offer these additional benefits to our users as we continue to expand and help landscapers throughout the US grow their businesses by providing complete, eco-friendly solutions." "At Lawn Buddy, our mission is to provide business owners the advanced tools and technology to spend less time managing and more time working to build their businesses," said Steven Werner, Chief Executive Officer of Lawn Buddy. "We are proud to join with Robin Autopilot in their efforts to bring the benefits of innovative business management software and robotic mowing solutions to a growing number of lawn and landscaping professionals across the US." Rachel Sullivan joined the company in 2010. Scapes Environmental Design has promoted Rachel Sullivan as the company’s executive vice president. As EVP, Sullivan will help the company grow even more, with a focus on customer service and technology. “I’m so excited to start a new chapter at Scapes,” Sullivan said. “I love working with customers to ensure they have the best experience possible, and this position allows me to put an even stronger focus on that.”
Since joining Scapes in 2010, Sullivan has played a critical role in separating Scapes from its competitors. She joined the company with a front-office role, ensuring customer satisfaction and handling requests and quotes. Sullivan quickly took on more responsibilities, including accounting and adding cutting edge digital systems that allowed Scapes to service more customers more efficiently. She made such an impact that President and CEO Jason Core knew he had to move her up the ranks of executive leadership. “”Rachel’s drive, initiative and organizational skills are second to none,” Core said. “She has proven time and again that she can easily use her wide range of skills and her vision to make Scapes the leader in landscape design and maintenance. We are fortunate to have her in this role and look forward to more great things.”
