    I know every one in the lawnsite forums has two software loves qbooks or ptree. My question is this, any body had luck with a software call "My Invoices & estimates Deluxe"? I just bought it today and it has the features I liked on the other mentioned software but not the price. I can email invioces, estimates, statements and PO's and do a whole lot of things. Says I can have it up and running in 5 minutes, justthe basic stuff......
    Anyone help me before I open it and load it up. Thanks!

    Hi FFMED74,

    I have heard some of our customers at one time used that program when they first got themselves computerized.

    You might want to clarify which program you are referring to...Gopher or "My Invoices & estimates Deluxe"?

    This is one of many programs Ive been using for almost 10 years now, for the money you cant beat it, so easy just to create a simple invoice. Ive used programs that cost 10x's what MyInvoice costs, but I keep coming back to this program for simple invoicing

    As far as backing up goes, it the user not the program, if you back up onto disks or cd's then there is no problems. The default back up is into its own program files, so if you lose the program you lose the back up. The trick is to back up onto a disk!

    Sorry James Cormier I beg to differ Like i had stated 3 different users that i have run itno with the same issue seems fishy. No one of the times i started up the computer and the program and it said it was corupted so i backed it up disk one no go disk 2 no go computer tech ffixed some of it but i cant worry about it like that.

    My Deluxe Invoices and Estimates. By Elibrium. Version 5.0.0
    Is that the same version you have? I didn't see an email function in mine.
    I switched to it last summer, previously was using Excel. I plan to keep using it this year.
