Now is the Best Time to Invest in CPQ and Proposal Software

The holiday season is in full swing, and 2016 is just around the corner. While this time of year is typically full of merriment, it also brings with it a good bit of stress. After all, you are neck-deep in that year-end push to meet your quota, all the while juggling family obligations, days off, winter weather, and more. And still, you must be gearing up for a profitable Q1 in 2016.

 The idea of adopting a new sales tool may be the furthest thing from your mind right now, but it shouldn’t be. In fact, this is the proven perfect time to consider implementation of new sales tools, specifically CPQ and business proposal software which will allow you to operate more efficiently and productively than ever before. Here’s how such tools can benefit you now:

 

Improve your odds

With only weeks left in the year, the need to focus on the clients with the highest potential to close is paramount. When your customers are presented with a professional proposal, they are more inclined to do business with you. Eliminating ambiguity regarding your price and services is the first—and sometimes the most time-consuming—step to closing a deal. And did you know that including simple graphics and images with text makes a proposal 47% more persuasive?

 

Reduce the time it takes to draft proposals

Come midnight on December 31st, the year is over whether you met your goals or not. As the clock winds down, you need to make use of every minute. With proposal software, you can cut the time it takes to draft a proposal by up to 75%, leaving more time to sell, answer customers’ questions and concerns, and of course still enjoy some personal holiday time. Automating the proposal process and easily creating sophisticated, detailed, and accurate quotes, results in your customers immediately having more confidence in you and your business. Time to close a deal shortens dramatically.
