    1. Brand Consistency 

    By leveraging accurate CRM data and custom design features, you're able to create a more consistent experience for prospects to easily understand your value prop, offering, and all transactional details. 

    2. Build Trust 

    Customizing quotes to have better brand consistency and more valuable data communicate reliability, professionalism, and transparency to overall build more trust in your client relationship. 

    3. Save Time

    The pre-designed templates and automation capabilities maximize your sales team's time to operate more effectively and create a better user-experience without spending more time adding details to the proposals. 

    Examples of Custom Quotes

    Selling Into Multi-Location Businesses

    Custom quotes pull custom object data from records related to the deal and then automatically merges them into the quote itself. This data can include inventory numbers, shipping records, company locations, and more.

    It's also optimized to be printed to collect a live signature (as opposed to an e-signature). 

    Generating Customer-Tailored Quotes

    This type of quote features dynamic terms being added to the document based on what products are added and ensures that the right legal language is automatically added. 

    Having automated compliance reduces legal review and makes issuing contracts to customers much easier for sales teams. This can save time by: 

    • Automatically differentiating between MSA and standard Terms and Agreement for either new or existing clients 

    • Creating deal flexibility (such as a one-time free product) and automatically adding the contractual terms correlated to the product  

    • Simplifying longer term deals by dynamically updating the terms and agreements (e.g. changing the deal terms after a length of time) 

    • Discounting products to the overall price while seamlessly including any discount terms to the agreement 

    Quote with MSA and Meeting Link 

    This type of quote supports insertion of custom deal merge fields to auto generate the terms in the MSA so you're only having to receive one signature instead of sending multiple documents back and forth. 

    It also supports red lining (where users can copy/paste text from MSA docs and then dynamically update based on the picklists on the deal) - talk about a time saver!  

    With this, the meeting link is merged with the quote creating a seamless experience for your prospect to book a meeting with your sales rep directly after signing the quote.
