I have manage to get myself 500 sheets perforated 3 inches from the bottom for my invoices. It only cost me 43$ to get those done here at Kwik Kopy here in town. It was the only place that I found that they could do it

I will also be purchasing a bar code scanner (found one on ebay)

I hope I inspire people to get their paper perforated and get the bar code scanner for their gopher software

What exactly is the bar code scanner used for?

Entering your completed jobs
Entering payments

All in Gopher

Here's a preview of what the barcode looks on an invoice

Then the customer would detatch the bottom part and send it to me so I can scan it in the computer and I don't have to type anything

I use it and find it to be a great time saver.

well worth the money!
You can use your barcode scanner for much more than just Gopher.
Put barcodes on estimates, coupons, equipment etc..
track maintenence records.

There's a competitor to gopher that uses a Mini batch scanner that is battery operated out in the field and allows you to scan in and out at a customers property for time tracking. Back at the computer, you plug in and download the data for analysis.

Thanks, Tom. I am looking forward to try that out

I am waiting at the end of the bid so I can bid on my barcode reader on Ebay

I finally received my barcode scanner and I love it. I've tried it out on a dummy account and wow.. what a time saver. I've tried scanning the scheduling jobs and payments. And wow, i'm impressed with Gopher.
