    I have LawnPro (same ole story as others as why I did buy it), and am Demoing Gopher and Groundskeeper Pro and am trying to make a decision on which one to go with in the Spring...LawnPro is pretty good for the 58 bucks and will probably be a little better later, but with a larger cost...it IS NOT meant to compete with the more expensive programs out there...tech support is done by one person--the landscaper that put the program out...I am not going to say too much more as our lord unleash his wrath upon me (Sponsor thing) but I have my facts about Gopher and GP Pro...I need some input to help me out a little...Again, for 400 bucks I want a program that does it all...Some have said that one is difficult to use, but I don't think that is true...some say the other is more functional, but it looks like a program a third grader put together for a computer project with basic programming skills with very basic boxes and layouts...For the 400 dollars I think that program should be very functional, have cool buttons, have invoices that look nice, etc, etc...what do you all think?...

    Iv'e been looking at Gopher. I like the idea of the palm! think it would work nice for me. Also looked at Grounds Keeper about the same as Gopher but a few buck more. We use Quick Books now and its ok but needs two be updated. It does alot more than we need and can be hard to use at times. I will probably go with Gopher I liked it the best.

    Alocet's QXpress integrates with your QBs Pro like nothing else.
    I just bought it...I've been looking and contemplating for the last two years.
    You can buy their standard version, if you don't need the reports...that's in your budget. Watch their movie tutorials online to learn the software...do a demo with them and they'll offer a 10% discount if you purchase within 10 days.
