App Description

The Proposal was designed by sales professionals who needed an efficient way to generate proposals for their clients in real time. There were a few other estimating or proposal apps already in the marketplace but they all lacked essential features. The Proposal was born!…

We are committed to enhancing The Proposal going forward to make it an even more effective and powerful sales tool for you and your business!

What people are saying:

"Phenomenal application. Well done." -Piscesqt11
"You guys created THE app I have been waiting for, for a looking time! Regards from The Netherlands" - Anna M. B.

NOTE: The Proposal is powerful and provides an easy means to create proposals. It is not a full-fledged word processor or spreadsheet program and does not support text formatting, page layouts, or adjusting the appearance and calculations used in price lists. The app provides an attractive and professional fixed layout along with options to enable or disable output of certain items such as a cover sheet, footer, price subtotals, and taxes, and to change the font family used in your proposals. You can also export your proposal draft to a word processor document for further refinement, for that special high-value proposal. Please see a typical proposal output layout in the screen snapshots below or at http://matrixis.com/theproposalapp/.
