Read the following scenario carefully as it describes a typical process for a landscaping business:

TruGreen Tree Cutting & Landscaping is a local company that operates in Townville. Its work normally begins with phone call (or email) to Linda (the office manager) from a customer to inquire or request tree cutting or landscaping work.

Linda gets the details of the job from the customer, sets up an appointment with customer for an appraiser to go out and inspect the work. After inspecting the work, the appraiser prepares a formal and detailed estimate of the expected work and forward it to Linda who immediately contacts the customer and informs him/her about the estimate of the work. If the customer, doesn’t accept the estimate, Linda files the estimate and nothing else is done.

If the customer accepts that estimates and agrees for the work, Linda forwards the estimate to service crew who check their schedules and schedule the new work and inform Linda about the available times. Linda calls the customer and makes an appointment for the work.

On the agreed date/time, the workers go out to the customer’s property and complete the agreed upon work. A few days later, Linda issues an invoice and sends it to the customer. The customer then pays for the work.
