    Hey, I was just wondering if any of you use the cleaner planner that is advertised on here? It looks good to me and it's something that I need as I'm no good at remembering to update the diary, though I could try harder. But is it worth £15 a month? Seems kind of steep for something that is a basically a glorified spreadsheet. Also I presume the government will be tapping it at some point as there war on cash continues to gain pace. I'd like to hear any feedback about it. Thanks lads.

    CP is way ahead of other round tracking software once you get your head round how it works its fantastic so simple to use and the mobile worksheets are great the info on the app worksheets is way ahead of other software ,

    And support from Rob is first class plus their is a forum were most questions have or will be answered by other users and Rob .

    I work with a calendar myself , every house is wrote out in book in order for the next 10 months, and any new ones for that day/round I write at the bottom just and then rewrite it out when the page is full, as soon as I do the work I just count the weeks forward and mark it up. Cost me a pound from poundshop for the calendar :p

    Brilliant. A diary!

    Not a chance I am hand writing 600 plus customers into a book.

    With CP I press a button on my mobile at the end of the day and it is all auto synched.

    Organises your round how you like it. Shows all the stats you and info you could need to know to help stay organised and grow.

    I have had CP for about a year and just upgraded from basic package to pro as so I can sync the GoCardless widget to it.

    If you kill the tech thats your own fault CHWS. And if you only write out you books once or twice per year how does it stay upto date?

    Also CP is server based so for for example I can come to tour house log onto your computer and access my CP interface. It is not 'installed' on my hardware (phone app is) so I can access it from any PC or tablet or phone anywhere.

    Tipex ;) I don't lose customers only gain and when I gain I write it into the book, it gets updated every 6 months so I then organise what house comes before the existing etc. I'm not slating the planner just I find this as easy as any

    Interesting the OP created this thread.....

    How many houses to do you a day?

    Using proper software will allow you to plan your work better.

    You will increase your turnover, reduce expenses and spend less time on admin using software.

    As for £15 being a lot i pay for the £25 package and its a GOD send. I could NOT run my company without it.

    Whichever one you use i think it is really an essential part of your setup
    Especially if you have multiple frequencys
    I tried to get everyone on just 5 or 10 weekly but am finding as i am getting busier people are not just wanting the 1 option when i quote them
    Bearing in mind i have 1 particular area of town which happens to be furthest away where i have 80-90% of my work i am there daily and it is small enough that different frequencies work ok there and i do the other areas on my way towards home every day
    Without round partner i wouldn't be able to keep up with who is when etc and would miss jobs
