    Hi, looking for insight into what software programs you guys are using. The simpler & faster the better since I'm also the bookkeeper. Also online billing would be a plus

    I use quickbooks, I used to use lawn pro but it f***ing sucked.

    I like it, because of its ease of use, quick help (being so popular), and the ease of sending a backup to my accountant

    QB for me as well. I've used it since I started 20 yrs ago. Easy, quick to learn and is also something my accountant is somewhat familiar with, so if I do have a question about how to do something, he knows how to navigate the system or set up the account he wants me to use.

    You can also "customize" their template to make your invoices look just how you want. I use the hard copy purchased at any office supply store, not the online version.

    I've been told QB is the way to go. Especially since my off season work is construction related.

    Just need to decide on which version to buy as there are so many

    My version is QB Pro 2014. Works well.

    If you're looking for cheap and have a Apple computer, the app store has a ton of cheap stuff for invoicing, but I wouldnt use it if you were more than a one man operation doing residential's, otherwise use QB.

    Plus with quickbooks you can plug in prices and have them ready to go.

    That's the problem. I'm up to 34 accounts & invoice generator was killing me. I had to input everything, every time. Too much damn work.
