Currently our Arb Quotes Mobile app only supports iOS. Our Android app is under development and due for release in October 2020.
Arb Quotes is a mobile app designed for companies quoting for tree work to organise, manage and send quotations for quoted work in a more organised and paperless way. Appointments are downloaded from the software program Arb Office that are booked for a site visit, additionally new appointments can be added live on the app, for existing and new customers. All existing customer contact data is stored on the device. The app allows users to collect tree work data and descriptions, costs, tree pictures, map the location of trees, select tools needed for the job, view their calendar, undertake risk assessments and more besides. Once users have collected the data and are ready to upload, the data is uploaded to Arb Office ready to send to clients by email or post.
The phone rings and you are out of the office, it’s either an existing or new customer - No Problem! With the mobile app you can add new customers out in the field or make appointments for existing customers. When the users selects to “Save” it also updates the office live with the new appointment for the existing or new customer.

You are out of the office and need to know your availability for tree work or to book a sales appointment, no problem! When users download their appointments for the day, the download process also downloads all of the tree work booked in the calendar and also shows the sales appointments all ready booked for the user.
Mapping the location of trees to populate a site plan is possible at quote stage, provided the surveyor has mapped the location of each tree, each trees location and tree number is displayed on a map enabling ease of location.
Taking and annotating pictures to emphasis agreed works is possible, in the picture below the finished height of the tree is shown with a red marker. This feature is really useful as a pictorial agreement between the company and client as to what has been agreed, “A picture is worth a thousand words” particularly when it comes to completed work! Viewing past pictures of trees at quote stage and new pictures of completed work is all possible with the Work App.
Recording tools needed for a job is vitally important, ensuring staff know exactly what tools are needed for each job when work is booked in the calendar. Arb Work allows tree teams to view every tool needed for a job and easily helps crews in the morning gather all the tools needed for that days work and avoids issues related to forgetting an important tool when starting work on site!
Users are able to fully customise and build their own site specific risk assessment templates using Arb Pro. Users can add their own methods for risk assessment and reference their own generic risk documents for control measures and competently demonstrate clear systems of assessment for risk management. Quite simply ticking “Yes” chainsaw on ground will be used, will reference the control measures in the particular document for example and this methodology is applied to all risk items. Once set up all risk assessment templates are available to download to the mobile app.
Recording the value of jobs and individual items when quoting for work, is obviously important enabling the user to later compile and send the customer a quotation. Item values are continually calculated as the user adds work ensuring the total cost is visible at all times and if necessary enabling the user to adjust individual items up or down in value. When synced on return to the office all of the work is uploaded, no more hours spent typing quotes, just press the sync button and it’s done
