    Default Scheduling software

    Hi folks, I am new here so please be gentle.

    Does anyone use or can recommend any scheduling software??

    To date I have been using outlook calendar but having just put out flyers recently, I am having trouble keeping up with the scheduling then also remembering what I am charging everyone??

    I am hoping for scheduling software which is fairly user friendly; does not have to be cloud based and can allow for more services than just lawns.

    I am currently using Wave Apps for my invoicing etc... so think I'm ok with that, unless the scheduling software does that as well.

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Paul

    I have always used "keep it easy" which has been great, although I'm reluctant to go to the cloud version.
    But I still use job cards & paper diary. Reason is I had a mate that worked only from his computer and it died losing the last months info on jobs done and invoiced. He had no idea who owed what and had to wait for the $ to come in.
    With the cards all info etc is on them and the paper diary has jobs entered 4wks in advance. It sits on the seat next to me, no flat batteries, no lost internet.

    I use service m8 and have been since march
    It has saved me plenty of time
    It also does invoicing, quotes and other addon such as automated text and email reminders

    It is cloud based and after 20 free jobs a month you pay 50c a job
    I use it on my phone and can clock in and out and see what your job should cost
    I alos use it at home on pc - much easier to set up and do schedule

    Sounds good. Any up front cost involved.
