    Im battling on how to manage the clients and accounting. What software are you guys using to update you on annual maintenance contract or anniversary dates for installs? Keeping track of install and maintenance records? Also the obvious accounting of sales and deductions?

    We use Quickbooks Enterprise Contractor Edition 8 with Excell. You can use the programs to create, log, modify, any aspect of your business.

    Talk soon.

    Hello Paul,

    Things are picking up. I am headed to Voorhees to service a system, then to Yardley for smarthouse install, then to Devon, PA on sales call. Hammer down all the way.

    How is business by you? We are seeing it pick up a little.

    Talk soon.

    Wow nice to see Jersey guys on here. Last year it was just myself and champion landscaping/ evening star.

    Moonlight was that you at the aquarius open house last week? You were asking about the plastic well lights opening?

    Real glad to hear it. Things are ok here. I have been in the business for 6 years now but this is just my second year with my own company. So I am very excited with the upcoming year. Just had first call for the season for a new quote. Last years clients have called with many kudos. Can;t wait to be full swing.


    That was me. Which one were you.

    for invoicing and keeping up with accounts receivable, we started with quickbooks simple start and then upgraded to quickbooks pro. for cash flow and keeping up with expense items in check book form my book keeper uses quicken. That creates nice looking income statements and statement of cash flows that Bankers like for loans. for routing regular bulb service there are several calendar programs available for free on the internet we have used. They all take time to input info, but work.

    I have used Peachtree accounting, Lawn Monkey, Clip, and lawn pro, and the above is the easiest and least expensive way to do it for me.
