Clunky and buggy, but on the right track

Pros

The platform is on the right track in terms of attempting to improve the proposal writing, tracking and signing process, but suffers from a long list of design issues and missing features.

Cons

The number one issue is the inability for more than one person to work on a proposal at the same time - when you do so, one person loses the work they've done when the other saves theirs. It's a nightmare if multiple team members need to view and edit a proposal. There are a number of other issues related to how the app is designed, formatting text in proposals, and bugs.

Proposify Review

We needed to upgrade the look of our proposals and Proposify made it easy to do that.

Pros

I liked the wide variety of proposal types into which you can drag and drop images and text. Saved us a ton of time and increased the professionalism of our proposals.

Cons

Initially, it was difficult to determine how to print proposals. After we figured that out, things went well.

Great for the busy executive

We have made lots of sales based on this. Well worth the money.

Pros

Easy to use. Can make attractive templates. Automates the proposal process. Can track opens. See how much time was spent on reading each page.

Cons

Nothing. It’s perfect the way it is. Makes great products.

A good product that is still be upgraded

This happens to be my go to software for proposals. I have tried a number of other platforms but keep coming back to this one. They are doing a GREAT job of adding features right now, so I would definitely give this a shot. I have found it to be worth going through the learning curve!

Pros

This software cranks out nice proposals. I used them about a year ago and it was cranky. They have made major improvements over the last year. They now have lots of templates that are usable with a variety of industries and purposes. The followup systems are much better and the editing functions are now a breeze.

Cons

Like any other software, it takes time to get to know it enough to be efficient. I am a learn-by-doing guy but this was not an easy ramp up. There are packets of services and products that you should propagate before you begin your process. Be sure to take the time to go through all the training or you will waste a lot of time.
The wysiwyg function is a little bit kluge-prone, so check your proposals with a test email before you release anything to prospects

Great proposal writing tool

This is a great tool that keeps all of the proposals for multiple clients in one place. It provides a great interface for our clients to view and sign proposals.

Pros

I like the way you can see who has viewed the proposal and how much time each person spent viewing it.

Cons

I am least impressed with the customizing abilities. The editor is pretty basic, and I've gotten frustrated a few times with formatting struggles.

Invaluable for getting more work in and winning proposals

Easily helped me win more business this year. i now have a suite of proposals that are suitable for different types of projects and i can easily edit them and customise them for individual customers.

Pros

Proposify has helped me create multiple client proposals and really taken the hassle out of starting every proposal from scratch.

Cons

I have had a few times when budget tables have not saved and the software has crashed, However, i have contacted customer support on these occasions and they were able to get the data back for me.

Great Starter Proposal Software

We still use it today - we communicated heavily with the team on bugs. We have too much time invested with 10+ tempaltes and arfchive of proposals to make the move now.

Pros

Origionally it was the ease of use and premade tempaltes to use, digital sending and signatures. I am also fond of the reminders that can be sent to helkp push the cleitn along.

Cons

Complications happened when a forced push to new version in June of 2018 - the new version was littered with many bugs and many times work was lost.

Great proposal solution

Pros

I like that they have a library where I can keep various types of documents. The ability to customize and update various documents with an easy-to-use interface is helpful when you need to get documents out quickly. Online signature is fantastic.

Cons

While layouts and docs can be customized, it's still not the very best design tool so some design functions are limiting.

So cool! Proposals are hard, this makes it easier

I chose not to purchase it because my design team had already created a more beautiful proposal template in Google Docs, which is free. Without that "running start" there's not a huge difference between Proposify and Google Slides.

Pros

This creates a professional-looking online proposal with minimal effort. It's fairly easy to use and collaborators can pitch in. If you're starting from scratch, this gives you a big leg up.

Cons

I thought the designs were a little meh—especially the graphic design one! They could put more effort into making more beautiful proposals instead of b-level corporate designs.

Littered with bugs that waste your time and make you look unprofessional

Used it for three years. Woulda switched a long time ago to anything else unfortunately not many options existed. Today I am finally making the change. No software makes me as frustrated to use as proposify over the years. Sorry, it’s the truth.

Pros

Best option of a lot of bad options. Very versatile. Lots of features.

Cons

Lots of features but they don’t work well. Slow. Very glitchy. Buggy. Things randomly change and glitch all the time so if you make one change you can bet your entire document is now different and you have to recheck everything.

Great for creating and managing proposals

It is a great system that makes it easy to write proposals and get these across to clients. We would have continued to use it if pricing was a little better.

Pros

This is a great way to engage with clients and win new contracts. We loved the e-signitures feature. It also helps to keep everything organised and in one place. We love how it looks too.

Cons

We wish there was a little bit more control over the formatting of contracts. It was easy to use but was a bit restrictive.

Great tool to speed up the speed of the sales funnel

It helped me create beautiful proposals, i was able to collaborate with my co-workers and, and get faster approvals thanks to online signatures.

Pros

I loved this tool because it definitely helped me speed up the time and detail that i needed with each proposal to each client. I simply pre-filled some of the most common scenarios to the tool and after setting the tool up to fit my business needs, it has helped me be more efficient.

Cons

Nothing really, it interacts well with other software, once you have everything pre-loaded onto the account it will take care of the rest.

Template issues

Pros

Great product for proposals using A4 format.

Cons

Proposal templates are using A4 size. If you are in the US, you will need to do a good deal of manual work to turn templates into US-Letter size. Their support is not helpful: "I'm sorry to say that A4 is the international standard for page sizes. In order to make sure we're competitive in all markets, we have to make sure our templates are able to reach as many people as possible. I understand how much of a pain it can be to edit that, though."

Powerful Features but a bit Limted

Pros

The analytics are excellent and could easily help you close a deal that may have slipped by. The templates are also great to help you get started.

Cons

There are so many options for proposal creation now that you may very well find an option that is less money and integrates with your software set better. The price is also a little on the high side.
