Why graphic design businesses use a proposal tool instead of Microsoft Word
Many graphic design still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their business 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 proposal after sending.
With the use of a proposal tool 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 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.

Why smart software is important for businesses in the graphic design sector
Graphic Design companies are in the business of creating images and icons that represent a business or product. This is a difficult task. You need to understand your client’s target audience and be able to create an image that will resonate with them. When you’re designing a quote or proposal, you want to use compelling images that represent your products and services. At the same time, you want to create a quote that is visually appealing to the eye. This is why proposal software is so important for the Graphic Design industry. It allows you to use high-quality images and modern design styles that will make your prospect say yes! Creating a winning proposal can be tough. If you want to stand out from the crowd, you need to do more than just write a well-written document. You need to grab your prospect’s attention by presenting yourself in the best possible way using visuals that clearly communicate what your company does and why they should work with you. Quoting and proposal software has revolutionized the way businesses handle sales documents. Instead of using a tedious Word document or even an Excel spreadsheet, companies are now able to use dedicated software to create quotes and proposals that are interactive, engaging, and full of great information.
Graphic Design is a form of art, a visual communication. Its focus is on the layout and production of the visual elements of a published, printed work. Graphic design includes identity (logos and branding), print (magazines, newspapers and books), and web design.
