I am so done with using spreadsheets to run my business and I am loving Anow instead.  We use Anow in the office and on my phone, and I love how it organizes my appraisal business. You should check it out.  Yes, if you end up using Anow I get a gift certificate, but more importantly this a great service. They have a free product trial, demo and training so you have nothing to lose.  The link below takes you to the secure sign up page.  Enjoy!
