I own the company that makes Jobber (http://www.getjobber.com). We relaunched our product back in August with new features and user interface and have been getting a lot of really great feedback from all of our users, both new and old.

Our software is extremely flexible, robust, and affordable, and our customer service is second to none.

Give it a try, and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, concerns, or need any help getting set up.

Timesheets: $7 / month
ePayments: $10 / month
QuickBooks Syncing: Free Beta (This will likely be in the $10 / month range)
Website Forms: Free Beta (This will likely be in the $5 / month range)

I hope this helps! If you have any questions don't hesitate to get in touch.

Ummmm, this is the way it works for pretty much all software.

I find QB a great program with very little help needed.

Stay away from the companies with annual extortion fees.

I have been using billings for 3 years now, and I don't really have any complaints. I also have a mac, so it was the only software that I liked as they are few and far between. I looked into Jobber, and I did do the trial for it. The major turn off was the fact that it is a web based application, and has a monthly fee. Just something I don't feel completely comfortable with.
