"Bidsketch is an excellent tool for quickly submitting proposals and closing the sales funnel"

What do you like best?

Ability to create and edit existing templates is a key feature in Bidsketch-this tool empowers the sales team to maximize their time by being able to quickly edit the name, price, and expiration of the proposals is one of the greatest assets of Bidsketch.

What do you dislike?

We've had issues when our team was working simultaneously on a proposal and the system got stuck. Before both team members could confirm the proposal was done it was sent to the customer, which wasn't ideal. We had to follow up with the customer to disregard the proposal and please wait for the update document.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Bidsketch is a great resource to create proposals and can help to reduce the sales cycle. Once the proposal is created it can easily be updated for new customers. The ability to track when a customer views and then accepts the proposal is a great resource for the sales team. I particularly like proposals can be set with an expiration date, allowing the sales team to follow up with the lead before the proposal expires.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool is allowing us to maximize our time by reducing the amount of time we create a proposal. Our sales completion cycle has improved as a result of this tool.

"A solid option and huge time-saver, even if imperfect. "

What do you like best?

I save HOURS of time on proposals thanks to Bidsketch. The ability to save common chunks of contract or proposal is invaluable; the interface is very easy to use (for the most part).

I love the status tracking, and the e-sign features make closing deals much, much easier. I also appreciate the ability to set expiration dates on contracts, though this is a little more buried than I'd like.

What do you dislike?

Editing text inside of Bidsketch is TORTURE if you pasted it in from anywhere else. I've had to fight with their WYSIWYG editor and switch to HTML more times than I care to admit.

Other companies are starting to offer deeper customization and nicer visual presentation at a lower price, and I'm waiting to see if Bidsketch follows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of competitors entering the space, some of which may be worth a look at their lower price points and higher levels of visual customization. That said, Bidsketch does what they say they will, has a ton of power, and will really speed up your proposal process. As long as they stay committed to keeping pace with their young competitors, they'll be a worthy option to consider.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I manage almost 100% of my proposals and contracts using Bidsketch. I can quickly draw up detailed proposals that impress clients and make me look the part of a professional outfit.

"Easy to use proposal tool with beautiful design"

What do you like best?

The system itself is point-and-click easy to use without the need for programming or design skills.

It's setup so you can develop proposal templates that are quick to reuse for future projects, but can also be heavily customized with different features, pricing, terms.

Pricing is very affordable, and with the ability to accept a digital signature, it's a no-brainer for selling services online.

What do you dislike?

Currently, you're unable to generate a link to the proposal on demand (you need to send an email with the link to either your client or yourself). This makes it challenging if you want to write a custom email outside of BidSketch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great system at a low price and I haven't seen any other platforms that come close in ease of use/feature mix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing proposals, marking them as lost/won, templatizing process, sharing with clients, tracking views/comments.

"Bidsketch is Okay"

What do you like best?

Bidsketch made it really easy to create proposals and send them on your behalf. The process to create a full customized quote is quite fast and easy, and you can easily customize each one to be most relevant to your products and pricing structures.

What do you dislike?

Bidsketch has no method for exporting the data you input into it. You are essentially forced to use a secondary product to keep track of the proposals you've sent if you're a company that sends several proposals per day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not send many proposals on a daily basis or if you don't mind needing to input the data you enter into Bidsketch into another program, Bidsketch would be a good fit for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It easily creates and sends proposals on your behalf, including all necessary options and your terms and conditions. You can pick and choose what information you'd like to include on each proposal, allowing customers to receive quick and accurate proposals.

"BidSketch Review"

What do you like best?

Pre-populated templates that were already pretty close to what we would use ourselves make it wasy to implement. The price was right, as we didn't need a lot of the other fancy features which make other smore expensive.

What do you dislike?

the page alignements can sometimes be off, so we have to tweak a little,

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are others out there with more features and better layout, but we stuck with this one becuase the content was already created and closely matched out own words, so it was easier to setup than some others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

quick and easy proposals for marketing agency
