    I have heard good things about:

    http://www.proposalkit.com/kits/pkhelp.htm

    There are lots out there. I have even seen some open source applications. I don’t really use them and have limited experience with them. Something to consider is branding your own templates to use with the software. A while back I read an article by Kalena Jordan here

    Thanks for the suggestions Chris. I have hit the point where there are a ton of different variables in my proposals so it would be nice to automate them a bit.

    Andrew,

    I’m in a similar boat – Word & Simply Accounting just aren’t cutting it any more, and I’d love an automated option with good presentation.

    Please post a review of whatever you try & let us know your decision.

    I am glad someone else is experiencing trouble hehe I have been looking for something a bit more automated my self; but haven’t found anything. I may end up writing some type of Excel/Word template with some visual studio for office code behind. If I happen to stop being lazy and actually do that I will make sure and share with everyone.

    I tried proposal kit and it didn’t work for me..

    I understood a few months back I needed some form of automation with my proposals.

    I have to see their customer service is excellent and I do encourage you to try it…

    I have been using Google Apps for everything these days and it all morphs together nicely – also I have a free version of Salesforce (just ask the sales rep ;) ) but I have yet to get to grips with it and seeing as I’m a solo op can keep track of clients with Google Apps and good old, boring, folders….

    Happy new year

    David

    Do you need all those variables? You can probably write yourself a tool that has you plugin scores from 1 – 10 for a bunch of them and then outputs what you should charge relative to those factors.

    Personally, my proposals are largely templated, with some customization to show that I did check their website etc.

    Cheers

    Is there a reason that you’re not using Microsoft PowerPoint?

  • 8 Andrew Shotland // Jan 15, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    Tri – “proposal” not “presentation”

  • 9 Simon // Jul 19, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    Yes, Proposalkit’s didn’t for me neither. As other poster has mentioned, presentation is important which proposalkit really lacks in.

    Also, I find the process is timing consuming.

    Any other suggestions?

    The best one out there, have been looking deep into this for 4 months now. Take contact with Amit and ask for a demo. You´ll be surprised of how fast versatile and easy the web based proposal generator is. Its not the cheapest one but the only one that save you alot of time and at the same time raises the quality

    Try BidSketch. I heard good things about it. You can even import the proposal into BaseCamp and create a project task list out of it.

    If you are looking to use Microsoft Office automation to create proposals, analysisplace.com does this. Your customer profile, solution configuration, benefits/ROI calculations, pricing lookups, etc. are modeled in Excel. It then produces customized Word proposals or business cases.

    also looking for something. I tested out BidSketch as Tony mentioned above. Seems legit from what I can see.
