    IS QBOOK JUST A ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE OR IS IT ALSO MADE FOR BILLING, ROUTING ESTIMATING JOBS AND KEEPING RECORDS OF BUSINESS EXPENSES OR WOULD I NEED ANOTHER PROGRAM FOR THAT

    Quickbooks, as far as I know, doesn't do routing, but can do basically everything else. I use QuickBooksPro for invoicing, billing, expenses, payroll, and preparation of state and federal taxes. I have not used its' job costing and estimating functions, someday I'll look into them!

    I believe that the big difference between QuickBooks and QuickBooksPro is that QBPro does payroll.

    Do a search on this site, there are alot of threads about QuickBooks.

    Tvov is right. I don't know of any routing features within the current versions. There are documentation areas in each customer's account. As far as routing, I don't believe you are going to find what you are looking for.

    By the way.....Quickbooks Basic also includes the payroll module. The basic version is generally all you will need for the basic accounting functions.

    thats a good one promo

    You can get routing and scheduling software that is compatibale with Quickbooks. Like I just bought a scheduling software about 5 days ago. Go to Quickbooks website and they will list software companys, and demo's of the products that are compatiable.

    Hi draftlawncare,

    You are welcome to download and try our software. Gopher is designed for billing and scheduling. Your data can then be exported to Quickbooks.

    Quick Books Pro with Q Express from Alocet works very well.
