    I am in the same position as you. I have demoed Groundskeeper 2000. I like the idea that you can perform all the functions as you described in your last thread within one program, unlike Clip and Lawn Monkey. However, with Clip and Lawn Monkey a person can also use bar coding on invoices and route sheets which would greatly increase productivity by the time spent in front of the computer.
    I am still trying to decide myself.

    Doesn't Lawn Monkey and Clip use Quick Books to do the accounting portion of the business?

    My groundskeeper demo didn't work properly and looked very confusing. Listen to others - try LM! I'm very satisfied as are many others and you can check out their support forum here. They get back to questions w/in 24 hours. :D Also, once you get the hang of it, you'll start using more features. The add-ons to this program truly are that (bar coding, LMDC for PDA's, and so on) Clip makes you purchase accounting modules and time tracking and others which are already inclusive w/ LM.

    I don't know about Clip (to expensive for me) but accounting is built into LM. I have been using it for two years now.
