Why internet of things businesses use a proposal program instead of Microsoft Word
Many internet of things 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 business 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 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.

Why smart software is important for businesses in the internet of things sector
The Internet of Things is a rapidly growing market and it’s an exciting time to be involved in it. But with all the competition out there, marketing and sales are very important.

Internet of Things or IoT is the concept of connecting any device to the internet. In practice, this means that devices, such as a watch, car, door lock, dishwasher or toaster can connect to the internet. By connecting them to the internet, they can be controlled via an app or a voice command. For example, you can make sure your laundry is started when you leave the office, start your car and get the heat on in your house with a single command.
