CHICAGO, February 22, 2023 (Newswire.com) - LandscapeHub, the wholesale marketplace for the landscaping and nursery industry, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a new patent, No. US-11521173-B2, further strengthening the intellectual property position and coverage for the company's intelligent material list builder, HubSheets.
The newly issued patent, titled "Methods and systems for processing products listed in a landscaping project," covers the list collection via upload or system transfer, data mapping, and translation, exposing the data with real-time pricing via a customizable spreadsheet, suggesting the best path of procurement and automatically placing orders from over 400 wholesale suppliers.
"This newly issued patent demonstrates our commitment to developing HubSheets," says Chad Cooper, Co-founder and CTO at LandscapeHub. "With time and labor constraints being top concerns in our industry, stakeholders need a faster, more accurate way to take a materials list and translate it into a working estimate. HubSheets saves time, provides confidence when building estimates and making purchasing decisions, and automatically places orders. Instead of using outdated numbers and guesswork, users see real-time, accurate availability and pricing. Users can take a picture of their list and see a cart with items already entered with suggested suppliers."
"HubSheets technology is the future of handling project ordering on all marketplaces," Cooper continues. "We've streamlined the process of searching for an item, evaluating results, adding to a cart, and repeating."
HubSheets allows buyers to upload their materials lists directly into LandscapeHub. The patented HubSheets process saves time spent adding items to a list individually while calling suppliers to validate available inventory and costs. Using HubSheets, project material lists are translated into real-time estimates based on available stock and accurate pricing, empowering buyers to make more informed purchasing decisions.
Crop and convert images to plant lists
The File Converter and Cropper tools available in HubSheets crop out extra information, including takeoffs and plan images, converting JPG, PNG, and PDF plant lists to downloadable Excel files or used to create a HubSheet.
Search plant database to match products
HubSheets searches across the LandscapeHub product database to match each item in a list. Once matched, a user will see an availability rating and market price based on the LandscapeHub supplier network.

HubSheets can automatically assign suppliers based on the list of items, location, and fewest suppliers.

Users review and edit a list without leaving HubSheets, select the necessary items, and add to their cart to order.
