Why clean energy businesses use a proposal application instead of Microsoft Word
Many clean energy still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their proposals. 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 quotation 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 quotation 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.

Clean Energy is a form of energy that is created from renewable resources, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, etc. An example of clean energy is the power you get from solar panels on your roof. In contrast, dirty energy is produced from non-renewable resources, such as oil or coal. The use of clean energy has grown over the past years. The development and innovation of new forms of clean energy is one of the most important issues for governments around the world. The reasons are clear: you want to reduce CO2 emissions and provide sustainable energy for future generations. As countries continue to develop, demand for clean energy will only increase.
