The True Cost of Your Free Quoting Tool

Source: ConnectWise

It’s easy to have a love-hate relationship with the word free. The concept has enormous appeal that draws us in. Who doesn’t want to get something for nothing? But in reality, when something is free, there’s probably a good reason. That’s why we often ask “what’s the catch?’

Of course, there are cases where free really does mean free. But when it comes to using free quoting tools for your business, you may actually be paying a very high price. Spreadsheets and downloadable templates that cost nothing are fine for many business processes, but when relied on for creating quotes and proposals, they can cost you significantly in lost time and potentially lost sales.

Making the switch to a CPQ (configure-price-quote) solution will help you automate time-consuming tasks, minimize errors, and create more compelling and professional sales quotes with just a few clicks.

Not convinced it’s worth the effort to change? Maybe that’s because, over time, you’ve grown numb to the pain of using your manual quoting tools— from error-prone repetitive tasks to miscommunication to a drawn-out sales process—thinking they work “good enough”. This eBook takes a look at how your current process could be hurting your business, and reasons why a quoting tool may be the best way to stop the pain.
