Top 8 Proposify alternatives

No matter the size of your organization, proposals are critical to your operational workflow. That’s one reason that proposal software solutions like Proposify are so popular.

Proposal management software streamlines your entire workflow by equipping you with an all-in-one management solution for your proposals. For Proposify, this includes proposal templates, a content library, e-signatures, and even integrations with Salesforce CRM.

But what about Proposify competitors?

There are a ton of software solutions that can help you build a winning proposal. What if Proposify isn’t a good fit?

Here are the best online proposal software solutions in 2020:

  2. Qwilr
  3. QuoteWerks
  4. Better Proposals
  5. ClientPoint

1. PandaDoc

PandaDoc_quoting_software

Cost: $9 per month for individual users; $49 per month for small and medium business plans when paid annually.

Ease of Use: 5/5

Functionality: 5/5

Support Options: 24/7 live chat support, email support, product knowledge base.

Platform Availability: Online, iOS, Android.

Free Trial: Yes! 14 days.

Description:

We’re not here to brag (too much), but PandaDoc has helped thousands of businesses build a more effective proposal process.  

Our unique document editor makes proposal creation and revision easier than ever because all changes can take place inside the PandaDoc platform. No more exporting to Google Drive or Microsoft Word to revise your bids and RFPs! Simply make the changes inside the document and resend. For added speed, you can modify one of the 450+ templates in our template library to create your own collection of branded documents.

But what if you already have all of your documents ready to go?

You don’t need real-time editing or content management. That’s okay, too. With the PandaDoc Free eSign plan, you can sign and send an unlimited number of documents for free. No credit card required!

From award-winning customer support to free e-signatures, we’ve got something for every stage of your sales process.

2. Qwilr

Qwilr_quoting_documents

Cost: $75 per month for 3 users, or $490 per month for 10 users.

Ease of Use: 4.4/5

Functionality: 4.5/5

Support Options: Email support, knowledgebase, training sessions, account manager.

Platform Availability: Online.

Free Trial: 14 days.

Description:

Focused on snappy, interactive proposals, this proposal software gets a lot of things right by taking a web-based approach to your proposals.  

Rather than uploading a Word or PDF document and attaching an electronic signature field, Qwilr helps sales teams transform documents into interactive web pages. Customers can review proposals, quotes, and client updates with a single click.

It’s an interesting take on proposal software because it leverages the power of the browser to make proposals look great regardless of what device is used to access them.

Using Qwilr, even small businesses can stand out in a busy world of RFPs and invoicing.

3. QuoteWerks

QuoteWerks_professional_quotes

Cost: Starting at $15/month for desktop-based PDF quotes (electronic distribution and web access available for additional fees).

Ease of Use: 4.3/5

Functionality: 4/5

Support Options: Knowledgebase, live reps, emails, support tickets.

Platform Availability: Online, Windows.

Free Trial: 7 days.

Description:

For Windows power users, QuoteWerks can be a powerful tool to create better proposals and eliminate costly mistakes.

Unlike every other tool on our list, QuoteWerks allows you to set up a quote template and then use automated software tools to produce interactive quotes for customers. It’s a unique take on the proposal process that makes the software stand out from the rest.

The downside to QuoteWerks comes with the pricing structure. For $15/month, you’ll get the Windows desktop version of the software and the ability to create PDF quotes that you can attach via email. From there, everything costs more.  In order to send quotes electronically, you’ll need a QuoteValet subscription (an additional $27/month).  

If you’d like to use the web-based version of the software, you’ll need to use the Corporate Edition and pay an additional fee. By the time you build a package with online capabilities similar to every other software on the list, you’ll pay close to $100 per month.

For the right user, QuoteWerks has an interesting take on quoting and proposal software. If you like desktop software and want to automate your proposal workflow, this software might be right for you.

4. Better Proposals

Better Proposals

Cost: $19 per month for 1 user; $49/month for 3 users; $129 for 3 users with enterprise-level features.

Ease of Use: 4.7/5

Functionality: 4.4/5

Support Options: Live chat, knowledgebase, online training, account manager.

Platform Availability: Online.

Free Trial: 14 days.

Description:

Focused on ease of use, Better Proposals takes the position that you shouldn’t need to be a software expert in order to create a winning proposal.

Their drag and drop proposal editor and template library (similar to the PandaDoc document editor) helps users personalize and customize their business documentation. That includes quotes, agreements, proposals, and more.  

On top of that, Better Proposals’ integration tools allow users to connect with CRMs, chat with prospects in real time, and monitor proposals for better metrics. If you’re looking to win business faster, Better Proposals can help you get there.

At $19 per month, this is a great option for solo freelancers. At the Premium level ($49/month), you can only send 50 documents per month. If you’re at that level, you should check out the PandaDoc Business plan so that you can send unlimited documents every month!

5. ClientPoint

ClientPoint

Cost: Starting at $65 per month/user.

Ease of Use: 4.5/5

Functionality: 4.3/5

Support Options: 24/7 live chat support, email support, product knowledge base.

Platform Availability: Online.

Free Trial: No.

Description:

Billing itself as the ultimate digital sales experience, ClientPoint focuses on offering enterprise-grade proposal creation tools for businesses. This helps users create a complete sales experience for customers that goes beyond the proposal creation process.

For enterprise-level sales teams that want to completely control the client experience, this is already a big deal. However, ClientPoint takes it a step further by allowing team leaders to create a prebuilt experience to keep team members aligned.

Many of the proposal software tools on our list are focused on document creation. ClientPoint stands out because, even though they can help you create an outstanding proposal, it’s something that acts as part of a greater whole. Like PandaDoc, ClientPoint even integrates with major CRM and ERP solutions.

If you need an engine that provides data, analytics, and a meeting place where customers and users can collaborate, ClientPoint may be a great fit for your team.

6. Nusii Proposals

Nusii

Cost: Starting at $29/month for one user and 5 active proposals.

Ease of Use: 4.8/5

Functionality: 4.4/5

Support Options: Knowledgebase, email.

Platform Availability: Online.

Free Trial: 14 days.

Description:

The team at Nusii knows that proposals can take a ton of time. That’s why they’ve worked so hard to narrow that timeline down from hours to minutes. Whether you’re using a prebuilt template or designing a proposal from scratch, Nusii helps you get from start to finish in the fastest way possible.

Nusii is a powerful tool and a flexible software solution where proposals are concerned. It’s easy to add personalized branding and custom domains and contact information right out of the box.

If you’re looking for something fast and easy to use, Nusii may be a great fit. Give them a try, but don’t forget to compare them to the PandaDoc Individual and Business plans.

7. Bidsketch

Bidsketch_proposal_creation

Cost: $29/month for 1 user; $79/ month for 3 users; $149/month for 8 users.

Ease of Use: 4.4/5

Functionality: 4/5

Support Options: Knowledgebase, email support.

Platform Availability: Online.

Free Trial: 14 days.

Description:

Focused solely on proposals, Bidsketch can help you create a professional document in minutes and with just a few clicks.

What makes Bidsketch unique is how hands-off the product can become even at the bottom tier of pricing. From the solo package ($29/month), Bidsketch users can link their company domain for Bidsketch proposals, removing any reference to Bidsketch whatsoever. For customers who prefer a white label solution or who want to avoid confusion in branding, this is a powerful option.

Outside of branding options, Bidsketch offers a powerful collection of proposal tools, including a document builder, pre-built templates, and the ability to capture legally-binding electronic signatures. There are even advanced collaboration and management tools on multi-user plans, similar to the team management and workflow solutions that we offer with PandaDoc.

With Bidsketch, you can build a proposal and present it your way.

8. Huddle

Huddle_team_collaboration_software

Cost: Starting at $10/month per user (minimum of 15 users).

Ease of Use: 4.4/5

Functionality: 4.2/5

Support Options: Knowledgebase, chat, email.

Platform Availability: Online, Mac, Windows, iOS, Android.

Free Trial: No.

Description:

Like many of the Proposify competitors on our list, Huddle has a dedicated user base and is loved by thousands, especially in government circles.

Rather than trying to create an all-in-one environment, Huddle is focused on helping users deliver proposals using the tools already at their disposal. If you’re a Microsoft Word power user or a Google Docs aficionado, Huddle syncs with those services so that updating a document in one place updates it on the Huddle platform.

Huddle combines all of that with user notifications, an app dashboard, and key analytic data to build a more effective proposal creation process. This helps you create and implement a more effective proposal creation process.  

We know because we offer data analytics to PandaDoc users for the same reason!
