    I have looked at two demo model software but was not pleased with either Blizzard Buster or a no name software. Has anyone tried the DMC snowremoval quoting software? What do you recommend? I would like to do quoting, invoice and routing.


    Not enough snow in my area yet, one snow to date.:cry:

    I searched for Fisher snow software clip and found a link to clip software. Looks like both Western and Fisher have the demo cd. You can also get the demo online at http://www.clip.com/demos.asp. I have downloaded the demo and will spend time looking it over.
    Thanks, anybody else want to suggest a software program?

    You can always make your own in excel. It's not software but you can make it very efficient. There is a thread here somewhere with some examples. Since I cant find it I will attach a screen shot of the one I'm working on. It is just the Bill part of it. The entire bill is filled on its from other forms. When I get more done or if there is any interest I will zip part of it up.

    I also created my own Excel spreadsheet for bids. I'ts nice to double check your proposals. With Excel you can break everything down to the minute, penny or whatever.
