Why manufacturing businesses use Offorte instead of Microsoft Word
Many manufacturing still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their quotations. 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.

Manufacturing is the production of goods or material by machines or by hand. Manufacturing industries are usually subdivided into sectors and industries. The machinery and materials used in manufacturing goods can be either human-powered, like water wheels, or machine-powered, like computers. Examples of human-powered manufacturing include the production of clothing, household items, food and drink, and other physical goods. Machine-powered manufacturing includes processes such as machine tools, cranes, and ships. Materials may come from either human-powered or machine-powered manufacturing. Manufacturing is also sometimes called "industrialization", a term that covers both industrial and service activities. Manufacturing industry generally produces more capital than it consumes in raw materials and machinery, and generally provides jobs to more people than any other type of industry. Because of these characteristics, manufacturing has been one of the most dominant economic production activities in the world since at least the Industrial Revolution.
