    Everything I would love it if I could find something that worked all in one Right now I enter the deposit in an excel worksheet where we separate the price out entering the base price and tax Then I enter the payment again in the customer's account.

    Gopher isn't bad for the price, you pay for it once and thats it. i am pretty sure it was under $300. No support though. No upgrades in sight i'm sure. Its fairly easy to use, and has alot of good features. I've been sticking with that, and i like it for now.

    I also used the jobber trial, its a great software too. It just wasn't a good fit for me right now.

    I use Gopher and QuickBooks. Works alright. Only problem I have is that sometimes Gopher gets a database error and won't open. Can be annoying when you want to get some work done.
