Why infrastructure businesses use a proposal program instead of Microsoft Word
Many infrastructure 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 proposal 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 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 proposals with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

An infrastructure is the basic framework of a system, usually physical, social or technological. Examples include buildings, roads, bridges, dams, reservoirs, power grids, etc. The word was originally used to describe military construction projects. In this context, the word is still sometimes used today. For example, builders of an airport would be constructing the infrastructure.
