    I offer more than just mowing/fertilizing. I will offer mosquito, mole control tree and shrub care this coming year. Wich lawn and landscape software package offers more than just one application window????

    you can add many services to qxpress. Different crews, different job types. Lots of options. let them do a demo online for you and ask lots of questions.

    like grass-scapes said, do an online demo. do one with each company (gopher, groundskeeper, qxpress) and have their reps walk you through the program and show you how to use it. i think they all over a free demonstration for about 30 minutes.

    personally, we use QXpress, but you have to use QuickBooks to use QXpress.

    Thanks Guys. Can you schedule more than one type of recurring chemical application, I offer mosquito control on a monthly basis, tree and shrub fertilizing (w/mauget injections only when needed), perimeter pest control, landscape weed control, obviously weed control/fert,.... I don't want to download anything yet, I'm just not sure on how many, or even if there is a max # of chemical apps you can have. Groundskeeper and gopher both look good and qxpress is a little on the expensive side. (I'm a cheap a$$) but if I have to, I'll spend it.

    Get a cheap PC and use it for business only. Tax write-off as a benefit.
