    Do any of you fellas use any of the window cleaning software which gets advertised at all
    Like George etc!
    Some of them useful ,
    Be interested to see what you think of them and are they worth getting
    Also do any of these software packages allow you to use your iPhone or blackberry to keep tabs on your work

    I think the most popular are George and window cleaner pro. I use WCP. I think both of them now have online versions that work on iPhone but you have to pay monthly for them.

    Alot on here do mate, I don't personally as I like using my Excel Database.

    I don't think they are compatible for mobiles just yet, unless someone on ghere says different,

    George is available on a Palm Treo although, not many mobile phone providers sell them

    i use george & its great at £50 & online back up. once you buy it its yours forever no paying for up dates the back up isnt that much either. i did have mine on a palm zire but found it was much easier to have a clipboard with work sheets on it, usually take me 10 mins at ***ht to put in what ive done that day & print off next days - think ive still got the zire somewhere if anyone needs one for p&p

    I had designed my own package using delphi I used for years, the main function I wanted to add was auto updates, and auto email reminders for the customers which those software packages didn't offer. However after a good few years of it, I found that those type of system tend to take up a large part of your time, maintaining and updating the info, as well as the cost of them. So we switched to just using excel, keeping things as simple as possible. I just print off the sheets each day and spend about 5 mins updating it at ***ht.

    Yeah that's cool mate. I am sure I could find the software somewhere if not and have loads of odd leads here. How much do you want for it??
