Too Expensive

After careful review of the demo information, I feel that this software is extremely too expensive for the small to medium LCO.

While the program seems to flow very well and has plenty of features that may provide a more professional appearance, I cannot buy into a senario that the software will save you money.

Other scheduling software on the market enable me to have the same features for $1,000!

the marketing features alone is worth the cost.
a 'small' company will definately save $$$. your office will be so much more automated that you will not only save money on office labor but you will increase revenues by having much more time to sell your services to new customers and increas revenues on upsells to your existing customers.

look at it this way....you can apply fertilizer with a push spreader. you can apply to many more accounts with a ride-on type of machine.

really no difference. buy a cheap push spreader and do a few lawns....buy a larger more expensive motorized ride on spreader and do many more lawns.
buy a cheaper software and get things done....buy a more expensive software and get much more done

I have been looking at Real Green also. Is there anyone who uses the GPS palm pilot interfaced feature of Real Green? Seems slick. I have seen other software companies that claim to have slick features and when in the feild the slick feature ends up being a joke. There are some great sales people selling software. There is nothing worse than playing with sofware that has alot of data entry and playing with to enter data. I make money doing lawns, not playing with palm pilots and computers. However according to the demo of Real Green, it seems to be rather streamline?? Feedback from Real Green users would be great

Wow! You resurrected an old thread!

Do you use Quickbooks? Qxpress is a great add on to QB. Qxpress does all the scheduling, routing, sends invoices to QB to billed. You can lease or buy.

Groundskeeper Pro is what I use before...and it was ok, but looking back I should have gotten Real Green in the first place.

Problem is the longer you wait...the more harder it is to move over to a new program (transfer customer data ect).

As always probably better to get the right thing first...but also know you can only spend a dollar once.
