Why it infrastructure businesses use Offorte instead of Microsoft Word
Many it infrastructure 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 business proposal after sending.
With the use of Offorte 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 it infrastructure sector
The IT Infrastructure industry is a competitive one, and if you want to stand out, you need to be able to create quotes and proposals that will impress your clients. You want to create a quote that is visually compelling and will make your audience think you’re the obvious choice. You want to build trust and communicate with your prospect by being detailed, personable, and providing the information they need. At the same time, you need to keep things simple and make sure your prospects understand exactly what you’re offering them. 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.
This means the infrastructure needed to operate a business, including servers, databases, networking equipment, telecommunications and other elements. The IT infrastructure must be sufficient to handle both current and future demands on the business. The IT infrastructure should be designed with security in mind. This includes security for the business itself, as well as security for the individual user (to protect against viruses, spyware, hacking and other threats).
