    I installed the GroundsKeeper software demo. I only have 6 customers but I may have a few more soon. Demo only works with 5 customers. Software looks OK to me. Just wondering if anyone has comments in regards to GroundsKeeper or other software for a new lawn care business. Thanks in advance.

    I have always just stuck with Quickbooks...I have before looked into other software, and who knows, maybe I will switch sometime in the future. I would love to use RealGreen, but the price that they charge for it is TOO MUCH

    I attempted to install Gopher software. Once I got the email with my code to download the software I could not get the download to work. I was probably doing it wrong. So, I got lazy and passed the opportunity to review. I will contact Gopher soon with my demo download problem. Thanks for the information BSDeality.

    I have been using Gopher 2003 free 30 day trial for the month of august. I like it and am thinking of buying it.I did try grounds keeper but not for the full trial because I accidentally deleted it.Dumb ass.I may try it again.

    I just use microsoft money 2003 business edition for my book keeping.

    I only have 50 accounts, so routes, and employees is all stored in my head.

    Well I finally got the Gopher software installed. Works great. The first thing I liked about Gopher is you can add more than 5 customers. GroundsKeeper limits me to 5 customers. I got 8 customers. Will demo Gopher for the month. Thanks for the info. on Gopher.
