It [Manage360] has been an incredible tool for our business. Not only from a sales perspective, but also from a job costing and production perspective. … It’s a heck of a program. I honestly wonder how we ever operated without it.
The sooner you implement it [Manage360], the more profitable you’re going to be as you grow… The earlier on you can do it, the better it’s going to make your company long-term.
We finally purchased DynaSCAPE after researching available software since 2008 and after years of trying to develop our own computer design system. We’ve drawn and rendered our landscape plans by hand since the company’s founding and we’ve become very efficient. Now, with the program we’re able to create drawings in color much more efficiently, with a high level of accuracy for production crews, and with great ease of revision to best fit clients’ needs.
We inquired within DynaSCAPE and were lucky enough to have a training session “in house” with Patrick DuChene on our DynaSCAPE programs. I would highly suggest that if you purchase the DynaSCAPE program you consider to have some training. First of all, Patrick is a professional landscape designer himself and owns his own business. This means he doesn’t come from the academic standpoint, but rather from a practical side. Patrick gives lessons that easily apply to the typical designer. He makes the program easy for the novice to digest. Within one whole session, we were up and running. An amazing guy. We look forward to furthering our education with our DynaSCAPE program because there is so much more to learn and use.
I recently had the pleasure of having a personal training session with Patrick DuChene of Duchene Design Solutions for DynaSCAPE Design and Color. I want to first personally thank him for a professional and well-rounded training session. Patrick was able to help familiarize myself with many of the in’s and out’s [the software] and set me up to be successful in the Landscape Design process. I think Patrick is well versed in the program and was able to give me many of the in’s and out’s of the program and show me some shortcuts and quick notes. I
To give you a quick background of myself, I am a 30 y/o Landscape Designer who is in pursuit of my Landscape Architecture License. I have worked the past 8 years doing Architectural/Civil Engineering plans, with emphasis on commercial, industrial, and residential layout design. Much of my previous software knowledge had been in AutoCAD, Microstation and Vector Works. I had no previous experience with Dynascape. Patrick had asked that I give some feedback between the different programs and offer some suggestions as to what Dynascape does well and what the other programs do.
Right off the bat, I feel DynaSCAPE is tremendous in the focus for Landscape Design professionals. It’s simple/basic set-up enables users with no previous knowledge of CAD programs to have success working through the software. I enjoy the access to the landscape library (also with pictures) and how fast you can add up plant totals. The process of bringing a drawing into DynaSCAPE Color and being able to update so fast is an essential part of time management.
Now granted I have only been using DynaSCAPE for 3 weeks, but I have already done close to 10-15 drawings, so I have had some use on it. Granted, some of these features may be available, I just have yet to learn them. Like most programs, I’m sure DynaSCAPE will always be evolving and trying “everyday” to get better and better and meet more and more “Requests” from its users.
