    Is anyone using Include Software Asset? What is you opinion?
    What size is your company?

    We are trying to find something better then CLIP and Quickbooks combo.

    thanks for the replay. Why would you say that? do you currently use it. We have looked briefly at qxpress it definetly is less exspensive. We have just started our search about a month ago for new software. we are thinking about upgrade our CLIP software (don't think we will) or go with a whole new software (leaning towards the latter) looking to do less mutiple entry and to better job cost and track. We are still looking and deciding.

    thank you

    I am a user and have been since 2001. People didn't like CLIP then and apparently many still don't today. QXpress has a number of ex CLIP users. I use it to manage my fertilization and irrigation business.

    Thanks. We are a landscape design build firm building patio and walls etc.. ( we also have over 250 weekly maintenance accounts also that we would like to track individually) looking to be able to look at each customer and see if we are making a profit.

    Do you set up proposals from it? can you lead track from it? does it seem cumbersome?

    Thanks

    I don't know what you mean by cumbersome. For lead tracking, there is a built in contact manager with a ton of flexibility for all kinds of things and in different ways. You can also design custom fields for your own use. There is a learning curve and time needed for set up and your own customization. It interfaces seemlessly with QB. QX can easily handle and manage your weekly maintenance right along side of landscape projects spanning multiple days and crews.

    Hi I have been using Gopher software for 3 years now, and like it. Its easy to use and to print invoices.
