    Hello I am new to this forum and was hoping to get some feed back. We all have tried many different ways to stream line the office work by using 5-10ish different programs - Ex: Quickbooks, word, excel, dropbox, google calendars, gmail, and or what ever else you are using to get your invoices and scheduling out to employee and customers.
    Here is my problem - I can not find a solid program the does not depend on someone else - Quickbook for instance is the norm but how many of you use quickbooks online and with this new update they did in July'14 I am still spending hours on the phone with them to fix their issues - deleting reoccurring transactions, downloaded transactions come up as my business name and no way to match it to customers, and the list goes on.
    Even if I am stock with quickbooks - is there a program that can schedule weekly service through it and not fall apart everytime a 5 week month comes up.
    What do you guys use and what are their down falls so I find the lesser of the evils. I have seen another area in here but it has not been read or commented on in 2 years.

    Signed - Tech is slowing me down

    I know the getjobber guys are sponsors here and have talked to them in the past, I thought they are good guys.

    There's a free software options I saw the other day, I might just be a little worried about support and if it's full featured enough for you. http://lawnstarter.com/lawn-care-software/

    I've used clip for 10 or 12 years with QuickBooks. I'd stay away from QB online and get the stand alone version.
    You can also try a free version on clip called clipitc.
