St. Paul, Minnesota March 24, 2016 —- The 2016 Green Industry Benchmark Report marks the fourth year that HindSite Software, the leading provider of field service software to the green industry, has released the comprehensive report on hundreds of business owners.
With over 40 pages of analysis and more than 60 graphs, the 2016 Green Industry Benchmark Report is the most comprehensive survey of the green industry freely available. To accompany the report, HindSite has now released an infographic to visually represent some of the key findings.
With 82% of survey respondents reporting year-over-year growth, there is optimism within the industry. Businesses are growing and there are clear correlations between activities such as training, hiring and growth.
“The Benchmark Report is a tool that all lawn maintenance, irrigation and landscape professionals should utilize for planning,” explained Taylor Tuomie, a Marketing Specialist at HindSite. “We created this infographic to visually show the importance of hiring and training, what types of strategies yield the greatest results and what types of threats are the greatest to businesses.”
HindSite’s infographic also examines the technologies and strategies around technology that high growth companies are utilizing. Green industry businesses that have a website, a search engine optimization strategy, a social media strategy and that use software to manage their business grow at a higher rate.
“This year’s Benchmark Report shows the importance of investing in two key areas of your business,” said Tuomie. “If you want 2016 to be a successful year, you should be investing in your employees and in technology.”
