    If you use the search feature you will find that there are thousands of threads on this, many active within the last week. And yes, probably 99% of us use software.

    We use CLIPxe. from Sensible Software. It is not perfect, but is sufficient for us. We have 360+ accounts and do maintenance, mulch, flowers, turf treatments, etc.. It will interface with Quickbooks as well for both payroll and billing. Costs about $100.00 per month. You can go to their website, www.sensiblesoftware.com for more info and a demo. Support is pretty good. As for a financial software, Quickbooks is the most popular, for good reason.

    We use jobber. I like it. Look into it and if u want to try it pm me and I’ll give the code for a discount.
    It’s a good setup that can grow with u and it’s stupidly priced on your revenue just a flat rate.

    We're currently using Yardbook and I know a lot of others do to. I have no need for anything else yet

    I use excel and xero for my bookkeeping but I have mucked around with Yardbook and it appears to be pretty good if you want free software. If I was to pay for software I would probably go with service autopilot with QuickBooks. I think that would be better in the long term.

    Another vote for Jobber. It is constantly changing and adding features and updates and the customer service response is top notch. If it's during office hours they usually reply within 10 minutes via live chat. They even reply on weekends albeit with a longer wait time. It has almost all the features I need. The only thing I wish were a bit more streamlined was the expenses portion. I ended up using another program for that.
