    I've been looking at different software platforms to run different aspects of the business. Looking to see if anyone knows of a program that is affordable. My thought is something to get rid of the paper log sheets that we are currently using. What I want is something that I can run on a tablet installed in the trucks, I'm looking to have something that the driver can scroll to the particular account hit a log in button and a log out button and also pick the service performed i.e.. salting, plowing, walks, walk deicer etc. I don't really need it to be internet capable maybe just plug the tablet into my laptop at the end of the event and download it to the laptop. I'm not sure if such an animal exists. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    You might want to try Noreaster Snow Service.

    http://noreasterss.com/

    It runs an app version for smart phones and tabs... I've got it and am not a plower for $. I just got it to mess around with in case I pick up a few small drives.

    You can select what services you or the driver performed ie sand, salt or plow. You can email yourself (or driver to you) the log of services performed. It even allows you to take a pic of the job after you're done to attach in the email for your records.

    I have no idea how it compares to other apps but it's an option to look at.
