    Hi all

    just wondering if/what people are using for invoicing and job management software or apps? I'm looking to get a more professional set up for my office work and save on mountains of paper and misplaced bits of info that I've scribbled down. Just now I'm producing invoices etc on a template on my laptop then writing the details in a book and marking it off when paid. It's very long winded and time consuming.

    Ive be looked at a few of these apps but would like feedback from people who have actually used them. I'm a one man band so I don't need to link with multiple engineers. Something that creates boiler service certificates etc would also be handy. Also it would be good to hear if people have had a better experience with software they've paid for rather than some of the free options and vice versa.

    thanks in advance

    Not many, can only "quote" not estimate. Minor things like customer title eg Mr & Mrs is missing,
    Positives are works well across the laptop, computer, iPad and iPhone. Still getting used it but overall v impressed, especially at the price.
    They have been good at responding quickly to my enquiries
    I have cuty paperwork hours in half or more by doing this, so I'm

    I'm using invoice to go at the moment but the invoice/quote format is untidy imho, theirs nowhere for your VAT number or company registration number! So they just get squeezed in where I can.

    Well, I've had various emails from customers telling me how professional it all looks.
    Next year when the services are due it will email and text, so less hassle for me

    I'll have a proper look over the weekend but looks pretty good from what I've seen.

    I bought gas engineer software a while ago but didn't find it very easy to use, navigation, finding customers, addresses etc. Ok for certs etc but for estimates and invoices I use quickfile which is free and much better set up for that sort of thing as a dedicated accounting package.

    Just started using sage one.
    It's cloud based, so my accountant and myself have access. I just do invoices from it and give her the rest of the paperwork to input at month end.
