Quickbooks does a great job of accounting for you, but if you want real control of your business, from first contact, to proposal, to completed sale, to planning of job(s) - one time or weekly, to routing, to recording work done, to assembling for billing, to actual billing, and to transfer to a Quicken or other accounting product for final accounting, you need some industry specific software. Check out http://www.clip.com, for an old established program, or http://www.lawnmonkey.com for a newer functional product. Both have free samples to try.

I have used Clip since 1992 their software is great but their conferences are better and their clip forum is super
When I open a trade magizine I reconize a few people in every issue that I have met through Clip.
No software and computer is perfect and when you need help
and you will, the Clip people will be there to help.
Software is only as good as the people behind it that keep updating it, the version I have today is like a lazer mower
compared to a 36 bobcat when I first got it.
