Hi,

I'm currently in the process of setting up a small business (3 People). The business is a small design studio (Graphic design) and i am in need of some sort of software that is OS X Compatable to manage the following:

- Invoices (I need to be able to style these / not just print them on a letterhead)
- Quotations
- Allocation of job numbers
- Recording of time
- Management of business finances
- Studio scheduling

I know there is an obvious choice like MYOB, however I'm not sure that can cater for quotations etc. or is specific enough for a creative industry.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Cheers
Tom

We use Streamline. Once it is set up it is great. But the setting up process is lengthy.

I use Myob for invoicing and daylite for my job system. Streamline does look good...
