    I ran across this site called gopherforum and they had a software program that is made just for lco's . just wondering if anyone has tried it or heard of anyone using it and the thoughts on it...

    i use the gopher software mainly for the price compared to many other things on the market for industry specific book keeping. i really like the software for what all it can do, i do not use it to its full potential, but for the price it works very well for lco's.
    it has the scheduler and the accounts payable and recievable, it can track your inventory and once you set prices in the master page, it can do estimateds for you in a zip. It prints very nice looking invoices and estimates and also does several reports. you can upload your logo onto the invoices and estimates.

    i like it better than quickbooks for so many reasons. for the price it is well worth it just to get your clients, services and invoices organized and professional looking.

    I use landscapebilling.com. It's only $5.27 per month (your price gets locked in forever too) It does our expense reports, sales tax reports, invoicing, estimates, scheduling, routes, letters, etc..etc.. It has a lot of features and options that simplify the administrative side of the business. Customers are also given an account number and can log on and see their past invoices, payment history, leave ya messages, pay online... Anything you print has your logo on it so it looks really professional. It's also good b/c it's not software you download onto your computer... it's a website and it's accessible from anywhere which was great when our hard drive got scratched and wiped out. I didn't lose all of my company and customer info and while our computer was being fixed I could still go to my parents house and do my estimates and invoicing. You can demo it for free too which is one of the things I liked right off the bat when we tried it out a couple of years ago. Their website is: http://www.landscapebilling.com

    I just went to their website and watched the small video and I looked around their site. It looks like a great program. I would like to hear if anyone has used that software and what they think of it.

    Thanks again for the website !

    How does it compare to quickbooks? More tailored to our industry?

    I have had lawnpro for about 4 years. My computer crashed and lost the program. I was able to get data off hard drive. I have no way to open it. I tried contacting them and at first were helpful. But in the end, no one will get back to me. And I have no way to access data. One more chance to respond to my e-mail, before I contact BBB and spread the not so nice word about them.
