Why consumer software businesses use a proposal program instead of Microsoft Word
Many consumer software 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 quotation after sending.
With the use of a proposal program 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.

It can be distinguished from business software, which is typically built for businesses or other organizations rather than individuals. Consumer software includes many kinds of applications, such as media players, games, music programs, office suites, text editors, and a lot more.
