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

Why smart software is important for businesses in the logistics sector
A Logistics company needs to sell its services. This means that it needs to use proposal software to present its offers in the best possible way, and to convince the prospects that they need its services. If a Logistics company is not convincing enough, it won’t be able to win new customers and will lose the ones it already has. There are many proposal software companies out there, but most of them are designed for other industries. A Logistics company needs something that will fit their needs perfectly.
Logistics is the management of the flow of goods between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations. It is a study that deals with managing processes, such as procurement, production, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling and packaging. Logistics is concerned with planning material flow through a supply chain.
