Once you set them up, it's done, and you never have to remember if you mowed a bi-weekly lawn the week before or not. If it's not their week, it doesn't show up on the route sheet. It also optimizes the route for you, so that you're not driving all over town. Our office manager prints out the route lists for the whole week, and the crews come get them when they get their paychecks. Any additions or cancellations are texted to the crew leaders.

Like I said, it could use some improvement, but it's the only one I can get to automatically adjust for seasons.
I looked at qexpress and clip had more flexibility for seasonable schedule just like you described...weekly, biweekly, monthly, any # of days between jobs, exclude months,
