I'm looking for something very simple to use.
I just need to be able to write an estimate, change that to an invoice and mark it as billed or partial payment. Thats it.

Currently I am using quickbooks 2004 and its a pain.

You could do all that with Microsoft Excel pretty easy.

I, too, have been using Ayanova.
It's affordable, pretty user friendly once you get it set up, and the support is great.

Guess so, after complaing my issues to my wife she made something up in Excel. Seems great so far.

The Ayanova I'm going to look into I just skimmed that real quick.

Thank you.

The nice part about Aya Nova is the software is not a bad price, and you can either make your own data, or buy data from many vendors.

I have Quickbooks 2006 and it works well for me. There is an extra invoice/form add-on to make your invoices look better.

I'm still using QuickBooks “Pro” 2000 for those functions. It’s basically just a stripped down version of QuickBooks for contractors. You could probably set up a separate “Company File” without all the banking and payroll functions. The inventory list was really the only thing that was a pain to set up and use with QuickBooks Pro. If you don’t itemize your estimates or prefer manual data entry for materials and pricing, then you can bypass the inventory function.
