Best Business Software?

Need to track taxes, receivables and payables, billing, the usual stuff.

Been doing it all by hand and on paper... Making me see spots.

What's the consensus?

Quickbooks PRO.


by hand and on paper.....what does that mean?




Don't tell me you still use a push mower....the motorized ones are a lot faster.

On paper has actually been working out. I'd just like to see graphs and pie charts and all that cool stuff.

I saw Quickbooks Pro for $216 at Costco last night. Is this a decent price?

I too am looking for software......cost is a consideration for me.......
Anyone have an opinion on Groundskeeper Pro?
I downloaded the Demo, And it seems very complete...... But I don't know it from anything else......

So many versions of Quickbooks

It just upgraded my Quickbooks 2000 to 2003 and I love it. What I love the most is online billing

That sounds like a pretty decent price from a store. You might also check ebay.

I use Groundskeeper Pro. I absolutely love that program. Makes that part of the business very easy to do. I too did all the book work by hand up until last July, now I wish I would have gotten the program alot sooner. It is very easy to use and and learn.

Quickbooks Premier with QXpress is the best combination I have seen so far. I would die without it.
