The last year I have been keeping track of my individual hours spent in the shop, out in the field, and in the office doing paperwork. I have found that I spend approx 10 hours a week during the winter in the office, and approx 15 to 20 hours a week during the summer. That is lost time as far as I am concerned. I have been trying to make things easier as far as invoicing, expenses, scheduling, etc. I have been using Quickbooks Basic since I don't know when. I just upgraded to 2005 this past December. I also use a seperate scheduling program as well. Well, lately with the lost hours I decided that I needed to do something fast. I was getting sick of double entering information on schedules and then in Quickbooks. I checked out many software programs and their intergraded scheduling with invoicing. The one thing that I didn't like was the fact that I was going to lose my merchant account processing through Quickbooks. So after looking at new softwares, and also add on's to Quickbooks I final decided what I needed to do. I really liked the way Qxpress allowed you to upload your schedule completed into invoices in Quickbooks. But the only way that I could use Qxpress was I needed to upgrade to Quickbooks Pro. So like I said, $650 later, I upgraded to Pro and downloaded Qxpress Standard to try to solve my many wasted hours spent in the office. I will keep you guys updated on how it works and pro and cons. $650 was well spent in a situation like this I feel.
