Why You Should Cover QuoteWerks

For 16 years, QuoteWerks has been meeting the sales quoting needs of your
readers and today, we have over 56,000 users in 101 countries using
QuoteWerks. Users benefit from the numerous features QuoteWerks offers and
enables them to achieve greater efficiency and accuracy in preparing their
sales quotes, estimates, and proposals.

Given the current economic conditions, your readers are turning to
QuoteWerks in hopes of lowering their cost of sales while driving improved
efficiencies and accuracies. Preparing, monitoring, revising, and
converting quotes to orders are cost driven activities that often impedes
the sales rep from spending valuable time on revenue generating activities
including prospecting, demand generation, and account management. Without
having an integrated quoting tool, many sales teams and professionals are
handcuffed to word processing and spreadsheet software such as Microsoft
Word and Excel and forced to manually create quotes. The limitations of
these programs are often the cause of users entering inaccurate product and
pricing data. Aside from quoting the wrong price or the inclusion of a
discontinued item, the quote is prone to human error when calculating
pricing, taxes, shipping, and other related sales costs.

Errors and inaccuracies quickly reduce the company’s margin, erode the sales
commission earned on the sale, and may increase the cost the customer must
pay (which will likely lead to a lost opportunity for the sales rep and
company alike). Utilizing a sales quoting application such as QuoteWerks
will ensure that quotes are accurately prepared in a timely manner,
professionally designed, and provided a way to email the quote directly to
the customer.

QuoteWerks was designed to serve businesses of all sizes with an emphasis on
delivering a low-cost, hassle free software application that includes free
support and training offerings. Additionally, QuoteWerks offers concurrent
user licensing to reduce the number of licenses required, remote site and
