Why building maintenance businesses use a proposal application instead of Microsoft Word
Many building maintenance still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their quotations. A previously created template is modified manually and then sent as a PDF. Sounds easy, but in practice this takes a lot of time, the chance of errors is high and you no longer have insight into your business proposal after sending.
With the use of a proposal application it has become a lot easier and better for entrepreneurs. You still use templates as a basis, but now you have a full content library in which you can search and reuse texts. The chance of errors is minimal due to smart automation. And after sending you can still adjust your business proposal and you will get insight when your customer views the proposal. The modern interactive presentation options make an impression and the option to digitally sign makes it very easy for a customer to agree.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect quotations with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Why smart software is important for businesses in the building maintenance sector
Building Maintenance companies need to be able to offer quality quotes and proposals to potential clients. If you can’t do that, you won’t get many clients. Proposal software can help with this. It allows you to create professional documents that will impress your clients and make it easy for them to choose you. There are so many things to consider when creating a quote or proposal for Building Maintenance. You need accurate content, but it also needs to be well-designed. You need a compelling design that represents your company’s core values and ideals. Quotes that are easy to read and comprehend make the decision to say yes simple for your clients and prospects. In today’s fast-moving, mobile world, plain and boring Excel spreadsheets no longer make the cut.
Building maintenance is a set of routine activities to prevent deterioration and preserve a building or other infrastructure. It includes the periodic repair and renovation of all building elements such as roofing, drains, water pipes, elevators, and boilers. Building maintenance is distinguished from building restoration in that it encompasses a wide range of building envelope components and functions rather than simply repairing damage.
