Why paper manufacturing businesses use a proposal application instead of Microsoft Word
Many paper manufacturing 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 application 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.

Why smart software is important for businesses in the paper manufacturing sector
It is a well-known fact that Paper Manufacturing is one of the most popular and widely used industrial sectors. In the modern age, competition is fierce and to stay ahead of the game, it’s important to get your message across in a clear and concise way. 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.
Paper manufacturing is the process of converting pulp, a thin mat of fibres, into a flat paper product. After the pulp is processed and converted to a mat of fibres, paper is made by pressing the mat of fibres between two heated, smooth metal plates. This process is called wet pressing. The metal plates are engraved with a pattern, often lines or circles. The fibres that are in contact with the plates are cut and die into the patterns on the plates. The fibres that are not in contact with the plates become airborne and are scraped off the surface of the plates by a doctor blade or doctor knife. In modern paper mills, air pollution control equipment (scrubbers) are used to clean the waste gases coming from chemical pulping processes. These mechanical processes have been largely replaced by modern chemical pulping processes (white water and black water treatments).
