    I hate to admit it but I no longer need my wifes help, I have no need for the scheduler and I have cut my "after work" time by 25%.

    I do not work for or endorse nor have I been paid to evaluate (obviously) this gopher product but guys, seriously, if you are a professional and are serious about your business, get the freakin software (if you dont already have it).

    Anyone new to the biz or anyone, like myself, who finds themselves missing a few jobs here and there and cant keep track of invoices etc....this software rocks!

    I score this product a 9 outta 10 and I have tried em all

    I have had it for a couple of years now. The only thing its really good for is schedualing. There quite a few things in invoicing and payment that I cant even expalin that bother me. I give it a 7 out of 10

    Is it better than outlook calendar? Can't be.

    I have used it for over 3 years now handling hundreds of accounts, scheduling
    routing, invoicing, payments. The only fault is no spell checker.
    Very easy software

    I demoed that stupid thing like 3 times and couldn't stand it. Excel is so much faster and you can manipulate it however you want. Of course for financial matters I use quickbooks. I guess that was my biggest problem with all of the lawn care software the financial data just didn't hold up to QB.

    You can download a free trial of it to see if you'd like it. I use it and really like it.
