Robin Autopilot, a robots-as-a-service (RaaS) robotic mowing technology provider, has teamed up with Lawn Buddy to launch a new offering that integrates RaaS with Lawn Buddy’s lawn and landscaping business management software.

Lawn Buddy is a software solution for landscapers that enables them to easily manage their business. This includes features for setting up new clients, invoicing and billing clients, scheduling and tracking crews in the field, along with other marketing and management features.

Until this integration with Robin Autopilot, Lawn Buddy has focused entirely on the management of manual landscaping processes.

Robin Autopilot solution is what it calls a “Complete Robotic Mowing Service Platform”. Robin Autopilot provides features that connect robotic mowing manufacturers with landscaping pro’s who deploy the mowing equipment in the field.

Robin Autopilot’s list of mower manufacturers includes brands such as Husqvarna, ECHO, Stihl, Robonow and WORX.

The partnership is a win-win for both companies as the Robin Autopilot fleet management system for robotic mowers will now be fully integrated with Lawn Buddy’s app. This will enable professional landscaping who use Lawn Buddy to manage their business, to quickly incorporate a RaaS-based manufacturer sales model, into their business and acquire robotic mowing equipment.

The integration enables landscapers to track usage of their RaaS-enabled mowing equipment, and also 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.”
