    Do you have Clip, LM, Quick Books or any other accounting or management program?

    MS Office Pro. The stuff ther interfaces with each other and QB or QB Pro can interface with this stuff as well.

    You can export customer info to Outlook. MS Word can access your Outlook address book.

    I'm just now switching acctg to QB Pro and learning a lot of new capabilities with stuff I already have, like MS Office Pro. I've used it for years but but mostly Excel & Word and about all I know is how to put the spreadsheet info into a word document.

    I used to use MS Office. It was far more than I needed, so when I got my new PC, I got MS Works. It was about $50 and does everything I have needed. I used CLIP and Peachtree for everything else.

    I use ServiceCEO to do everything, why do you guys use Office for letters and other programs for scheduling and all the other functions you need? I just use one program for everything.

    I think their site is insightdirect.com
