Why founders use proposal software instead of Microsoft Word
Many founders 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 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 a perfect business proposal with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Latest from the blog
Is this a shameless advertising blog for Offorte? No. No, because I'm genuinely satisfied with it. So satisfied, in fact, that I've been writing blogs and articles about and for this tool for over four years. In addition, in this blog (note: figuratively), I go with my butt bare. So, read on and find out why I should have started with online proposals much earlier.
We have been working hard on a completely new proposal editor & display for a long time. The development has now entered its final phase and will soon be tested by users. Check out the latest sneak preview with the updated pricing table, new page sections and photo gallery.
How do some people do it anyway... One offer after another is approved. In addition to a rock-solid offer, there is a good chance that the favor factor plays a major role here. Find out what that favor factor is, how to create and increase it yourself.

A business proposal example that can be used as a starting point for different target groups and companies. In addition to an open and modern design, the content is of course also very important.
You make a proposal by clearly summarising the benefits for the customer. Just as an accountant can give direction to the entrepreneur, the proposal gives direction to the collaboration.
Perfect accounting includes correct, complete figures. A proposal must be like the accountant's balance sheet: complete, error-free and customer-oriented.
Coaching is personal and completely customised, adapted to the wishes and needs of the customer. A personal offer to start the collaboration is a must.
With Offorte it is possible to fully implement a corporate identity in the proposal view, whether it is a colorful style or very dark, with the proposal templates you are flexible to adapt it to your business.
Busy days and complex schedules are part of a handymen company. Save some time by making your proposals with a proposal tool. You also immediately distinguish yourself from the competition and show your customer friendliness.
The playing field of marketing today is largely online. With an online proposal program you make the customer journey suitable and surprise your customers.
Travel agencies sell atmosphere and life experiences. The right interactive proposal stimulates the imagination and gives customers a preview of the journey to come.
For a training agency, providing customisation is one of the most important aspects. The client must recognise himself in the proposal content.
proposals from web design companies count many pages where parts are always standard and a part is specifically tailored for the prospect. The Offorte content library makes it a lot easier to write a good offer.
Quality, price, advice, experience, knowledge and good service are important distinguishing factors for companies. You must make this clear when making a business proposal.
