    Good morning Karl,
    We have a lot of seasonal accounts.Most are set up to pay starting Nov.1 through Apr.1 They are billed by the first of each month and have 10 days to pay.Again most accounts are great,but had a few glitches with one.Threaten them with no Money,no service Can't believe how fast the check arrived.
    As far as your question on forms,not sure what you need!We use Quick books for our accounting and invoicing.In the process of writing a program for keeping track of our snow accounts.

    Hey Mike, if you care to share, I would love to look at that program when you're done.

    Just wondering if anyone else has a program that they are using.
    We are puting one together,but it is always nice to see what other guys are using.
    What we do need is a program for maintenance records.I'm sure I could buy one,but which one?
    Thanks

    Mike try this one, we use it because you can select either hours or miles, we use hours because it works out better.

    Go with the fleet progam and try out the demo.
     
  6. I would like to use lawnmonkey but no french version available, so I use microsoft office to manage my contracts and bills and i use another account software ( fortune 1000).

    I got Quick Books Pro this fall and do not think I wasted my money. I was using quicken before and I like Pro better. More options and able to do estimates easier.

    We bill out per storm the next day, that way we dont get calls saying they dont remember snow on that day ect- also we post the time of service (approx.) on invoice also we dont show previous work or balance-just the work and total for latest storm It works out really good checks are coming in constantly. Does anyone else do it this way?

    Fifth Ave,
    Yeah... we do it that way too.

    And, we do it for the same two reasons you do.
