Why supply chain management businesses use proposal software instead of Microsoft Word
Many supply chain management 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 business proposal 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 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.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect proposals with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Why smart software is important for businesses in the supply chain management sector
Supply Chain Management is not easy. You have to be able to create and execute a plan that will move your business forward. Your plan has to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your existing resources, but it also has to allow you to find new resources and implement them effectively. That’s why it’s important for Supply Chain Management companies to use good proposal software. If you need a tool that will help you generate quotes and proposals for your business, one of the best solutions is a dedicated proposal software program. When you choose the right software, you can get access to all sorts of templates, including sales pages, PPT templates, and more. You can also add your own custom images and content, so you can tailor each quote or proposal document to a specific prospect or client.
The term supply chain management (SCM) refers to managing supply chains. The function of supply chain management is a highly integrated process that involves planning, procurement, logistics, manufacturing, inventory, quality control, and information technology and analysis. Supply chain management also involves the application of lean principles in the areas of supplier selection, vendor managed inventory, and transportation. Supply chain management differs from traditional procurement in that the procurement function's focus is on negotiating the lowest possible price from suppliers whereas supply chain management seeks to ensure that an organization's suppliers deliver goods and services that meet its quality and delivery requirements.
