Why software businesses use a proposal program instead of Microsoft Word
Many software 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 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 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.

Software is a computer program, or set of instructions, that tell the computer what to do. For example, software tells the computer how to process information in order to display a web page on the screen or send an email. There are different types of software, like operating systems, which control the basic functions of your computer; applications, which help you do specific tasks like making spreadsheets or playing games; and programming languages, which allow developers to create new programs. Software can be purchased off-the-shelf (meaning it's ready for use right out of the box) or custom-made (meaning it's built specifically for one customer). It can also be free software (which means anyone can access and use it) or proprietary software (which means only certain people can access and use it).
