Medlin Accounts Receivable. It's cheap, it's customizable, will work with plain paper or standard forms, you can email invoices and statements, it's menu driven so it's easy to learn and not complicated like quicken. If you need support it's just a phone call away. http://www.medlin.com/

If you are planning to expand to two employees, use QuckBooks. It will save you a great deal of time. It will also save you hassles with your employees if there are misunderstandings about their paychecks.

If you use a bookkeeper, they'll appreciate the record organization that QuickBooks forces you into. I have a couple of clients that got it together with their QuickBooks. I don't charge then anything. I just look over what they have done (usually takes about 10 minutes), make a backup and send them on their way.

You don't need to stress over your books.

Do you use Quickbooks for everything, payroll, invoicing, estimates, and scheduling. I'm in the same boat as the op...growing and excel/word docs just are not cutting it anymore. Need to free up time and makw things easier...
