thats how we have been doing it, actually using estimate which is almost the same thing. decent software for starters, but its just that imo.
however, i am wanting to turn things over a little more to employees without having to worry about over/under pricing and dropping the ball with a little more managment and tracking than estimate has.
estimate is REAL simple to use, but lacks the customer management and job tracking, and marketing that comes with cyrious, and you get more power over pricing with cyrious.
im trying to find someone using cyrious control to be specific. they have two versions, cyrious sms version 8 (which i just bought) but im thinking of moving up to the new product they have which is called cyrious control v1. its got some more features and a web viewer so clients can look at invoices, estimates, and make re-orders online and some other stuff.
someone who visits here has to use control!!!!! if so, please drop me a email, a pm or a note here. i would like to get some info on the program from a user standpoint, and ill return the favor!!!!
