"The team over at DynaScape are incredibly intelligent and really know the Landscape industry. I own and manage a $5 million dollar commercial landscape company in California. Not only are we in one of the most competitive markets in the country but we are located in the hub of technology, the Bay Area. If you don’t have the right software working within your business you will be out bid and outsmarted every day. We on-boarded DynaScape [Manage360] in March of 2016 and as we close this year out, I couldn’t be happier with the software. We have grown our company 75% over the last 12 months, about 60% since bringing on DynaScape [Manage360]. I estimate the total amount of labor hours saved each week averages about 8. Our gross profit per job has increased by 10% since bringing on DynaScape [Manage360]. These are some really great Key performance Indicators that your software can really help in more ways than one. It has also improved the accuracy of our bids and more importantly, provided us with a real understanding of our costs to complete each project. Their overhead recovery methods are something that will benefit any size company. So many people make the mistake of not recovering their overhead correctly and it could result in not hitting your profit margins or not getting the job. With DynaScape’s estimating tools you will have a clear understanding of what your costs are, what your overhead is, and how much profit will be made on each project. This product also allows you to develop a very large material and plant database, you can attach production rates to each material which makes estimating a breeze. We have four full-time estimators and consistency is a constant struggle, with DynaScape [Manage360] we have been able to provide our clients with consistent and competitive bids no matter who the estimator is. I would recommend DynaScape [Manage360] to anyone that wants to streamline their estimating process and make more money."

"I would definitely recommend it [Manage360] to anybody. The earlier you start, the easier it is to modify and tweak and understand it. And to run a business these days without having some kind of software, to be honest with you, I don’t know how people would do it."

"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 purchased the DynaScape program about a year ago. Before purchasing the program we did our homework and believe that this is the best program out there. The graphics are beyond comparison.
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.
