Hi Duekster, here is a review thread someone posted back in November. As close to free praises on a mountain top as I can get. http://www.lawnsite.com/images/smili...smiley-033.gif

As always, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Jeff

So I finally sucked it up and purchased SAP this afternoon. 4 Hours later I'm praying I'm setting this thing up right for scheduling. Question for those whose clients are locked into a fixed rate contract. How do I set this thing up to automatically invoice them the same amount each month?? I have my contracts setup where we only make an apparenance once a month during Jan/Feb, then back to normal schedule in March. If I use the contract feature, will SAP just simply invoice that amount each month?? If not, what do I need to do to make it do what I want??

In the past I've just been using memorized transactions in QB and just invoicing them once a month.

Go to your "client list" and select your client. To the right side of the screen under the "balance box" is a contract button. Click it and it will set up a contract. You enter all your specifics of your contract then to the bottom of the page is the "payment details" section. There you can put whatever you want billed monthly. If it is the same enter the amount in the First month and click "auto fill".

I have spent the last few days of spare time getting my company set up. Tomorrow is inventory and schedule day!

the one thing i recommend you do is call them and set up a training date and time. they will show you via remote connection on your computer how to do everything. for us it took about 5 times. each time is about an hour.

Yeah I've got one scheduled for noon today actually. I'm just trying to get as much done by myself as I can so I know what questions to ask.

How satisfied are you now that you've got it all setup??

WOW! The previous page on this thread has several people that might drop SAP. I am planning on signing up any day now but this is making me think again about what I am doing.

Are the issues you guys are having serious? And they are not returning phone calls either?

Not what I really wanted to hear right when i am about to take the leap!!

no the issues are not major just annoying. i am consider switching for something that has a marketing portion. SAP has absolutely no marketing to customers or prospects. emails, or direct mail.
