So what is the catch for this perfect software?

I went to https://landscapebilling.com/ and clicked on demo and the options and customizing is amazing! It's also $5 a month!!!!!!! Thank you guys for posting comments about them. Can it be forwarded easily for tax software or for a tax person like H&R block??????



Quick books I pay a lot of money screw them!

The catch is that it is far from a perfect software?

Johny you went a little too far. Quick books is very expensive. Quick books is not tailored to landscaping as much. You don't know me I have built my business basically by myself from knocking on doors years ago, working on equipment by myself, to billing all by myself. How many guys can say that? Most have there parents or there wives help them out (no offense)

At $6/mo, in two years, you have paid $144.

You can find QB Pro for about $100, and can use it longer than two years.

Have to agree with another post, ... trouble understanding the financial matters of QB, then you need help. It matters not how many doors visited, how much wrenching, or how many hours each season sitting on a ZTR.

From what is posted on LS, there are many good machine operators, wall builders, landscape designers and installers, some of which are lousy business people. Just the way it is... nothing against all the other skills mentioned.

Well the comment above wasn't necessarily directed at you even though it was worded so... Didn't mean to offend you there

But I'm not feeling you when you say it's expensive...The link I posted wont go over 100.00.

second, it is tailored to small business in general that is who you are there is nothing (literally) nothing that the software you speak of can do that Quickbooks can't.

The only thing that makes it look more tailored is the way they label their windows. They use lawn Care lingo in there software instead of accounting lingo.... If you ever use Quickbooks you will quickly realize just how cheap these other software programs really are...

The version I run has company templates for Lawn/landscaping companies... I do it all myself as well, it's a bit*h.....

Again, no pun intended.....

No offense but that's my opinion. There are always thread's about who likes what software. So your telling me the people that don't like Quick books suck at running a business?? I can't understand your upfront rude comment theories but you don't know how I run my business. Kind of stupid to judge someone's business ethics over a piece of software. Are you having a bad season or are under 18 years old? Well it's late and I don't want to waste my time typing to someone that thinks there always right.

I have feeling someone helped you with your business starting out. Does it suck thinking that without them your nothing? Just thinking as if I was you.
