The leading name in Service Industry Software. Route, schedule, estimate, and job cost all of your projects with one program


CLIP, the leading name in Service Industry Software, started off as Lawn Maintenance Software, but today it has expanded to include software for a variety of other service industries as well. With CLIP, you can route, schedule, estimate, and job cost all of your projects. CLIP allows you to track your crews—and the time they spend on each job or location—with GPS technology, producing employee efficiency reports and revenue tracking reports to show the profitability of each job and each customer; and the application also contains contact management software with all your customers’ information and a history of all services provided. Besides offering all of these benefits, CLIP is also:


CLIP’s newest software, CLIPxe, can combine with Microsoft Outlook, allowing you to save paper by emailing customers their invoices and statements; and while you’re saving the environment you’re also improving efficiency, since emailing customers generally results in faster responses. You can also use CLIPxe with QuickBooks to accept credit card payments.


CLIPxe features CLIP2GoWeb, which allows you and your crew to take the information you need with you anywhere you go on an internet-enabled touch-screen phone; and it even allows you to switch between English and Spanish.
