Gopher is Perfect

I have used gopher for 3 years now and it has improved so much in that time its amazing. I keep telling the guys at Ditect to go to the Louisville show because they would get so much more business. I also have Clip and its so confusing I feel I need to be a computer programmer to make it work. The only reason I purchased Clip was because Gopher only had the basic version a few years back and I wanted to expand. I just talked to the guys from gopher on tuesday and the PDA version for you scheduling and jobs for the day will be available soon.(Job costing etc.)
I recommend gopher over anything.

I use Quickbooks. It is great for my needs. I do have some accounting experience, and that definitely helps with this software. It's not for everyone, but probably worth you looking into.

I use "ServiceCEO" software by Insight Direct. www.insightdirect.com This program handles invoicing, customer records, employee payroll and records, scheduling, estimating, employee availability and skill levels, etc.........

I also use Quickbooks Pro for the accounting side of things.

I just purchased the Gopher 2003 software and its very user friendly. I would like the guys at Ditech to add an appointment module to this and it would be perfect.

I have used CLIP and I think its sux. Its confusing unless they've changed it over the past 2 years. Its got a DOS look to it and is not a "point and click" type of program. I think its grossly over priced.

I tried other programs like Easy Bee, Wintac, LawnMonkey, Groundskeeper, TaskManager. Lawn Monkey would be my second choice...I like its mapping feature. The others are harder to use.

I think ClIP is the worst though.

I got gopher 2003 about 2 months ago. Its great. I looked at all of them and decided on Gopher. The best 300 I have spent in a while.

I love gopher the only problem the customer service I have gotten so far is terrible, they don't return calls, not e-mails, there's a link with quickbooks wich I really need, the only problem is a poor link, sales tax and payments are not applied correctly, and some other major problems, I would recomment gopher but until I get someone to resolve my issues I'll wait, don't buy it for the quickbooks link, but anything else does real good.

Give Ditech a call..they answer right away. They are very small company and i think their customer service is great.

I would take Mowerman90's advice and look into medlin. He suggested it to me a few months ago and I found it to be very easy to use. Makes billing a snap and you can e-mail statements...save on stamps.
