i switched to gopher this year from quickbooks and can't be happier...also tried lawnpro but it was terrible, didn't even get it fully set up before i just went ahead and bought gopher...we have over 90 accounts and this program makes it easy, but then again, we used to do every thing the old school way

I tried a lot of them years ago.

I use quickbooks for the accounting end, and used qxpress for the scheduling and routing and found that to be a great combination.

If you want to continue to use quickbooks, the only one I recommend that interfaces perfectly is qxpress.

I tried gopher. While I see it would be a pretty good standalone software, when I tried integrating it with quickbooks it was a nightmare.

I bought into Real Green last year, but found it too complicated to use the way I need, so I switched to Quick Books Simple Start. I will most likely move up to QKBKs pro next year.

The Real Green will most likely do my estimates and be a database for my bids. I was assurred that I could do manual billing with the program and I can't. The programmer couldn't understand why I wanted to do manual entry on most of my bills, but I don't do everything by the 1000sf or in a cookie cutter fashion.

Quickbooks allows me to be more flexible.
