    I want a software that can alert me when something needs to be done. So if I need to fertilize a property 4 times a year it will alert me that in two weeks or within the week I need to schedule it. Other things that would be beneficial are truck and mower maintence alerts. Just trying to simplify things in the off season. Even job costing would be a plus. I looked at qxpress but it seems pretty pricey. We run three crews with about 140 accounts so I don't know if qxpress is overkill or not. Can someone please help out. Thanks

    You have to ask yourself if you plan on growing If so then look into clip real green or qxpress. I know a company that runs quickbooks and clip and they service over a thousand customers.

    Clip is what I would use -you can schedule all your work based on a number of different parameters...

    Also you can setup maintenance tasks as well the same way you would schedule work for a customer

    Very worth the investment in my opinion.

    It looks like great software from what I have seen and heard, the problem is the high price tag that comes with it!

    Its not as expensive as Realgreen.

    It is expensive. I think I paid 1200 for it (platinum version)

    It is supposed to handle 10000 customers cannot be as slow as quickbooks.
