Qorus Software, provider of document automation solutions for Microsoft Office and Microsoft SharePoint, has announced the release of Qorus Breeze Proposals, a proposal automation and collaboration solution that dramatically reduces the time required to generated sales proposals from hours down to minutes while improving the quality of the proposal.
Qorus Breeze Proposals proposal automation and collaboration solution integrates with leading CRM systems and other enterprise systems to merge live data and content into sales templates. This method eliminates the standard practice of copying and pasting content into existing documents, ensures only approved and valid content is included in proposals, and minimises human error.
The solution has been developed to specifically meet the requirements of bid managers, proposal managers and sales teams to reduce the time and effort required to generate customised sales proposals and to make the management of the RFP (request for proposal) response process much easier. The company’s flagship product, Qorus DocGeneration, is a document automation solution that works with Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Word and PowerPoint to dramatically reduce the time and effort required to generate customised business documents, such as sales proposals, financial reports, and contracts.
“We noticed a trend over a year ago of customers increasingly using Qorus DocGeneration for the generation of their sales proposals,” says Ray Meiring, CEO of Qorus Software. “This, coupled by some research of the market and of the competitive landscape, made us realise that there was an opportunity for us to extend Qorus DocGeneration functionality specifically to meet the requirements of sales professionals and bid managers and to offer a more user friendly alternative proposal automation solution to the market.”
“Vodafone and Verizon are among those clients whose use of Qorus DocGeneration for the generation of their sales proposals inspired us to bring Qorus Breeze Proposals to market,” continues Meiring. “Vodafone, in particular, has benefited from an incredible reduction in time spent generating a sales proposal from up to 20 hours on average to now a couple of minutes.”
Qorus Breeze Proposals is built on the proven Qorus DocGeneration technology that has been at the core of the company’s clients’ document based business processes since 2008. Qorus Breeze Proposals adds sales process specific functionality to this robust framework, such as RFP collaboration features, a sales content library, an innovative “shopping basket” for building customised proposals from approved, re-usable sales content, and a social widget that enables users to suggest good content for inclusion in the sales content library and for future re-use.
“We’ve built in features that will enable bid managers and sales professionals to not only develop their sales proposals in a fraction of the time it previously took, but to also improve their win rates by helping improve the quality of proposals over time,” concludes Meiring.
