If you don't need scheduling in your business program give Medlin Accounting a try. You can download a fully funtional program from www.medlin.com It's not a very big program so it won't take long even if you only have dialup access. I've been using Medlins Accounts Receivable ($38 to buy) for the last 12 years or so. I've tried Clip, Lawn Monkey, Quick Books Pro, etc. and haven't found a program that was easier or more cutomizable than Medlin. Plus, it's only a fraction of the price of any of these other programs. The only drawback is that it doesn't have a scheduling module. Give it a try.

I'm using Gopher, it's all round easier to set-up, and edit, not to mention scheduling.

The only other program I considered was Wintac (Not Wintac Green), I did'nt like GroundsKeeper either, to hard to navigate

I agree, Gopher is a great program. I have tried it several times and have just not gotten around to purchasing it...but I intend to.

I bought the basic version of gopher 2003 and it is all that I need for scheduling and billing. It looks real professional on the invoices. the tech support is awsome. Best 300 dollars I have spent.

How does Gopher compare to Grounds Keeper Pro? Has anyone "side by side" compared them?

I've got the GK Pro demo now.

McGrail, what don't you like about it? I haven't had time to play with mine very much, but I have 5 customers added, and used it a little.

I'm actually giving Lawn Monkey a try right now... I think Gopher is a little more user friendly ...cheaper too.
