Sooner or later, dated technology is retired, and newer, faster,
more reliable technology takes its place. This is not something
to resist; it's something to embrace. It's time to bring
yourself up to speed and take the plunge.
As you have been repeatedly told, there is no imperative to

right. Guys... The time is right.
The biggest change in Service2000, the change that makes it
ServiceShop is all about the future. We have replaced the old
version of the database with a new one. The old version was no

Top Reasons to Upgrade to ServiceShop
Reliability – old equipment failures consume upgrade funds –
this is a terrible waste of money
Increased Profit - the new system brings new and better ways to
increase profit, the old system silently deprives you of this
Technological Advancement – your old system silently deprives
you of new technology; you probably don’t even know what you’re
missing out on
Better Accounting – the new system gets you to QuickBooks, which
has become the universal standard for small business accounting;
and many upgrade for this reason alone. QuickBooks is easier to
learn than proprietary packages and is what most accountants
expect you to use, and use themselves. QuickBooks has more
powerful G/L, Banking, A/P, and can do payroll. It has a far
better bill-paying process and much more extensive,
customizable, graphing-capable reporting.

requirements, enhancements are easy to learn
