Anyone use GroundsKeeper program?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a billing software but can't decide on what to use. A good friend of mine uses Groundskeeper Pro and he loves it but i want to make sure this is the best way to go before i actually spend the few hundred to get it. Unfortunately it doest work on Mac so i would have to use it on my back up PC.

My question are;

1. Does anyone use GroundsKeeper Pro? If so, how do you like it?
2. Does anyone have something that actually works on a Mac? There are a lot of threads suggesting programs but not much info on ones that actually get used.

Thanks for your help!

Including anyone who uses Quickbooks for Mac. Is it easy to use?

i've never tried it. i just do things the old fashioned way i guess by writing them down in a notebook. it's simple and easy enough for me.

I used the Groundskeeper Lite program. Love it. It's a slim down version of the Pro. It's real easy to use and simple to keep up. Prints nice billing. Also great for taxing purposes.

I have it. I like it, but recently found a program that uses gps as well. It is developed by a lawn care owner. It will work great when spraying as it records your start and finish times with wind speed and temps. It runs off the web so you can use your touch phone with internet. If you have employees you can block certain info, and if you have someone who does your accounting , you can block your customer info. I have not done my trial yet. Was going to do it this week, but found a bunch of scrap iron work.
