Clipxe

Looking at CRM/scheduling/job costing software to track individual aspects of the business. There are a lot of threads on here about SAP, Jobber, and a couple others but not many recent ones about Clipxe. Clip has been around a long time and it looks like it went downhill a bit in the mid-2000's. I found a few threads with guys using it in the last 2 years but not a lot. It seems like it would satisfy a lot of my needs for job costing, chemical tracking, and scheduling recurring services. I've watched quite a few videos but haven't demo'd it yet, so maybe there is a reason nobody jumps on board.

So why are some guys going with SAP or jobber when Clip appears to do a bit more? Maybe I'm off the the "a bit more" comment but that is my perspective looking in.

Clip was a pioneer, and unfortunately a bit too early on one thing...they began charging monthly, instead of a one time fee.
It turned a lot of people off, ironically.... just about everyone charges on going monthly now.

Clip does more but there is more set up and learning curve, you dont just turn it on and start using it.

Thanks for the response. It just seems to me that it has more features than a lot of what is out there.

I see clip also has a cloud based software, ClipITC.

I use SAP, but I'm looking again... new features take too long to get going and it can be buggy...
