try gopher. Its basic and easy on the wallet. Its a good software to start out with. It does scheduling and invoicing. Thats all someone needs to start out with.

I like QXpress it's better than Gopher. New update coming out in about 6 weeks Gopher has not updated for years. Just for scheduleing "getJobber" is good too.

Where did you hear 6 weeks. I was told they were still taking recommendations on what to improve. They haven't updated in over a year and said it would be quite a while for a new update this year, if at all.

I called and asked.

As a long time user of Lawn Pro, I'd have to (finally) suggest otherwise. One thing I've noted over the years is anything needs to have good customer support. It's critical without it. We've recently updated to LP4, specifically for the multi computer use and remote access. I've had a few problems and I've had the most difficult time getting someone from LP to give me assistance. I've already begun the hunt for another program. We'll probably continue to suffer through LP for this season, but I'm sure we'll have something different next season. I've heard good things about:

I'll post more about LP4 later.
