    I know there's probably loads of threads on this subject matter already and feel free to link them to me... but I'm wondering what software people are using to keep track of their work? Excel database? Window Cleaner Pro (which I'm currently having an issue with!), George? What do you guys use!

    Seems there are a few errors with this piece of software.. mine deletes the customers prices when I tick them off as paid? Any one else have this issue? I contacted them, they were excellent at replying but we couldn't resolve the issue..

    No software that I have seen to date that is not really expensive will deal with add-on services properly.

    Found wcp for add-on services useless myself but it’s sort of ok for running a basic window cleaning round.

    Also I don't know if anyone has noticed yet but if you load the wcp software to a laptop type device and want to use it mobile say in your van for instance if you don't have internet access you can't run the programme as it authenticates the key online every time you go to run it even though it's a local programme running. :Image13:
