Generating quotes. It’s the name of the game when it comes to bidding on projects. You need to do it quickly and accurately (in your prospect’s eyes), yet it can be a time consuming process. You want it to look professional, yet you have to balance it against other constraints involved in running your business.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could put together a professional looking quote quickly and accurately? With Aysling’s PSA platform you can put together automated, professional looking quotes much faster than any manual process.
Here are a few of the things our PSA software lets you do to save time and effort in creating your proposals.
With Aysling, you can build just about any kind of template you want, with an array of personalized options. They can be reused for different clients and prospects. You can customize the template to fit your needs, such as using the company logo and other branding features. Not only do these customized features make your quotes distinctive, they save you a lot of time.
Plus, the template allows you to whiz through the details, like addresses and line items, filling in various fields with the needed information automatically. All you have to do then is hit the send button.
Begin by putting together one or more types of templates that work for your PSA platform and for your clients and the types of procurement and payment processes they use. This will give you the building blocks you need to create quotes and invoices in the future.
Our sales software enables you to automate things like pricing discounts, so you can keep your profit margins strong and consistent.
