    I've loved it for scheduling and managing the work. I've hated it for managing pre pays, renewals, marketing, emailing and pretty much every thing administrative related.

    They bid "the going rate"

    They go "just a little less than last years guy"

    They ask the customer what they are paying now and drop it $5

    They post on here asking for other peoples prices

    They bid "what they heard its going for"

    They bid " a dollar a minute"
