    I'm currently using the Demo version. What's the difference between the Demo and full version. I'm thinking about buying it but don't know if it's worth the money.

    I dont know why this was moved. It's about Blizzard Buster Billing software not Blizzard snowplows.

    I've been looking a little a quickbooks now. It seems like the Pro edition has less options than simple start. How is simple start for billing, estimating and keeping track of customer payments?

    i have quick books simple start, i hate it, its fine for billing, but its not deisgned towards lawn care companies. I have been using the blizzard buster demo and i really like it. Gonna buy the full version unless someone knows of something better.

    I Love my blizzard buster program, got it last year well worth the money.
    Even a t 3 in the morning after 36 hours of plowing you can sit down at your computer and plug ing the info. very simple.

    I thought it was about Blizzard Buster Ice Control.

    lol

    :dizzy:


    I have Quickbooks too. It requires a lot of learning. I dont use it currently. Do my books old school byhand, and use another Lawn care program that I wont recommend because Pat....is a dick.

    What do you use Lawn Pro?
    Lawn pro software is cheap about 50 dollars works great for people just starting out.

    Yeah but the owner wouldnt forward me my activation code. I lost it, and had to get a new pc because the other one got a virus on the net. I have them tied together and use the old one for all my proggies so thats fine, but wanted to reinstall it on my new one so I could use the faster printer......urgh!

    He never got back to me very fast when I had issues with the original proggie and he wasnt very polite I guess.

    It is a decent program though and its 64 dollars.

    I have your message about ideas and will respond here soon or tomorrow Brad...been busy as hell tonite.

    Weathers on....we arent getting anything. :realmad:

    quickbooks seemed very hard to put in charges for each customer, the blizzard buster program does this very quickley and it remembers allcustomers prices individually

    To answer your original question, I believe the difference is that in the demo you can only use it for a limited number of customers. I forget what the limit is.
