Lawn Care Software

Just trying to figure out what software people are using and if they like it. The ones I have seen are Gopher and Grounds keeper pro. I have been using excel but am to the point where I need to upgrade to Lawn Care specific program. Help me make a choice.....

I don't know if this counts because it's not lawn care software, but we use quickbooks for our business and it's great.

Just got Qxpress Platinum/wMapping ordered. Should be here this week. We use Quickbooks as well so Qxpress was a logical addition. The way the two programs sync is quite amazing. Also with Platinum you can upsell right on the invoice. Thats a nice touch. I think its going to be a money maker.

Roughly what does it cost you to run real green? When i looked at the site it seemed like it was a monthly charge and print with them only etc.

what do you like most about it? Out of all the software, gopher seemed the simplest and the cheapest.

Thumbs up Gopher

I also use Gopher. We like it, we changed company names and they were more than accommodating at issuing a new password. Very good company to deal with.

Thanks bud -- We looked at Real Green for $9,000. It was then we started "shopping". We'll see what happens. Got a quote from Real Green, and it ain't lookin' pretty. Ten grand vs new stuff (from new competitors) = something we're considering -- especially if it's a fraction of the price and does the same job.
