I have used them in the pass and I didnt like them. They will try to sell you there pre printed invoices and etc. I have been using quickbooks but alot on here have told me to use landscapemanagementsystem.com I thought they was horrible and I would not recomend them to anyone and I used there pro version.:usflag:

Hey buddy you gotta get your stuff straight. Your not talking about LMS because LMS does not have a "Pro" Version. I think you are talking about Gopher Pro.


LMS is awesome stuff. Please get your facts straight before you go bashing.

Check out the real www.landscapemanagementsystem.com

I have been thinking of checking out LMS myself. It is a great concept. The only thing that concerns me with an on line system is what if one day they decide to take the site down, or go out of business? What happens to all that info in our database? I would assume we would not have access to it any longer. So, we could be SOL with no notice. I may be wrong on this, but that was the first concern that came to my mind.

You can download backup's. That was one of my suggestions to them :D Also I think it will be around for a long time. Seems like a pretty stable site/business.

I agree & I have other thoughts that I don't like about using online software too, Right now I am using Gopher & I like it for the most part. Before you buy anything though, try it. Most co's have trial or limited versions of their software.

I have written my own using excel.
I started using it about 5 years ago and whenever I need to track more info I just add to the original program.
It works well for me and gives me info like average cut times and running times on equipment etc.
I print daily job sheets and take them with me the type in the info when I get home.
