9 Best Online Proposal Software

Businesses in all fields are trying to implement the paperless concept. Nearly all kinds of physical business documents can be replaced with e-documents, including the proposal. Speaking of proposal, there are even tools that are designed specifically to write proposals.

Commonly, people use word processors like Microsoft Word or WPS Writer to write a business proposal and send the finished proposal manually via email. We don’t say it is the wrong way. But, if there is a better alternative, why not trying it?

If you mainly rely on proposals to gain clients, adopting a proposal software is a great idea. Not only a proposal software can help you create a more attractive business proposal, but you can also use it as an integrated sales tool. Most proposal software allow you to accept payment once the proposal is agreed and signed.

Here are some of the best online proposal software.
