"Great quoting software and proposal delivery"

What do you like best?

My absolute favorite feature of QuoteWerks is QuoteValet, which enables you to send your proposal to a potential client in the form of a webpage. They can select optional add-on items, ask questions and even approve and sign. It has given the company I work for a great edge against our competitors. Since using QuoteWerks, we have won several high dollar contracts. Our customers love how professional the proposals look and we love how everything seems so automated. You can also integrate it with other software, such as Sedona. The integration is pretty seamless and has cut down on the amount of time put into creating new jobs. The bundling feature enables us to create quick proposals for some of our more popular security, camera and automation packages.

What do you dislike?

My only qualm with the software is that the user licenses are set on a 24 hour timeline. If I log in to QuoteValet for even just 3 minutes and then log out, that user license is still registered as being used until the following day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to purchase an extra license if you are using QuoteValet and have employees in the office who often log in to keep track of sales and proposals.

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

The biggest issue we faced before QuoteWerks was being able to quickly and efficiently send a customer who lives 3 hours away a proposal without having to mail it or have a rep drive out there to get the physical signature. QuoteWerks has completely fixed that issue.

"quotewerks - Moderate"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use and how the product ties into our other softwares and helps to manage our configurations for renewals. We use connectwise so it integrates well with it. It also pull all information from the vendors that we have linked through it. The product makes delivery quotes, proposals, scopes of work, renewals, and other sales packets easy.

What do you dislike?

I diislike how slow the application is. We have upgraded many times, but no matter what the speed of the application lags. the appearance of the application is outdated and can use a facelift (new image).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the product to its full capabilities. It does have the ability to only quote from, but the most impact you will get from the product is to use it as it is intended. Dont manually type everything in. It is best to upload all your company data and take the time to make sure it is all correct. In the long run it will save time and make putting documents together to send it out a lot easier.

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

As of right now we do not currently use quotewerks to its full ability. it does tend to become confusing without the proper training from the vendor. It is hard for us to understand the greatness of quotewerks since we only use the basics for it. If you do get this product, i recommend using all aspects of it so it makes the functionality of it more impactful

"QuoteWerks should be a requirement!"

What do you like best?

The integrations between our vendors and accounting package make the process of generating a professional quote through placing an order extremely easy. In the past what would take our company days to do can all be done within minutes - no exaggerating! The output is consistent and professional. The details are accurate. Overall it is a wonderful time saver. if you are in the business of IT sales this should be a requirement for your toolkit.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to not like about QuoteWerks. In my scenario it requires my accounting package (QuickBooks) to be open for its integration to work correctly. This means that each QuoteWerks user needs a QuickBooks license also. I understand why it has to be done so I am not complaining all that much. I am just noting that if there was a different way to do it I could save on some QuickBooks licensing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The integrations to vendors and accounting software are the key. It takes all the searching out of the sales process .

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

Before QuoteWerks our process was cumbersome and tedious. My entire team hated to respond to sales requests! now with QuoteWerks I can generate an accurate, professional, standardized quote in minutes. We are all now invoicing approved quotes in as little as an hour! Its made a direct improvement to our revenue.

What CPQ solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A tool that works well for quotes for resellers that offer services"

What do you like best?

It's pretty quick, and customizeable, I can easily type in customer PO's in the ship to lines if needed (so when they receive product the customer knows what PO the product is for. This is well over some home brew systems that force you to create a whole new ship, staying in a database forever. Imagine a customer with 200 orders and having 200 ship to's forever in a database. IT resellers will understand this issue esp when it converts to packing slips through distribution.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike it, because I learned something, using API to connect Google Contacts to Quotewerks wasn't hard after I learned how to process it. The license part was a bit tricky at first, a serial # then an upgrade # but support was quick and able to get it up and running.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very customizable, some distributors quotes you are able to copy paste them for a quick CPQ

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

Quote solutions, services bidding.

"Generating Quotes and Proposals for our clients"

What do you like best?

I like how this makes working our accounting team and sales staff hassle free and all the info generated is taken directly into our CRM and Quickbooks for our accounting division. We're able to generate a professional quote and make our documents look consistent and clear.

What do you dislike?

There is little to no problems with Quotewerks on the Sales side, but it required a liscence for quickbooks to get the best of the CPQ.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend intergrating this into your CRM and Accounting Software to get the best out of QuickWerks and Automate your sales process.

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

Before using QuoteWerks, all of our proposals were made inhouse iwith a PDF Template, this became tedious and very unorganized quick. Once we started using QuoteWerks, all we had to do was supply the details of our proposal and they would create a professional document to send to the client.

"Excellent Product! "

What do you like best?

Easy to set up and easy to use. Minimal "bells and whistles" keeps you on task and making quotes. Great for the first step of the sales process only and sending out for invoicing to another product.

What do you dislike?

Great software for the first step of the sales process only however... 1) Not all info is searchable. 2) Does not integrate with many programs and not all fields integrate. 3) "Tickle" or reminder functions minimal and only in quote valet. 4) reports are clunky and minimal without paying to customize. 5) No workflow automation. 6) Minimal notifications as to quote progresses or when approved to client or inter-company personnel. 7) Interface looks the same as it did in 2012 when we started. 8) Not enough logging of estimates as they change or are updated. 7) No scheduling functions. 9) No "app" for smart phones. 8) Minimal Export functions. 9) Dashboard notification options are very limited to just two integration programs and not for overall quoted work. 10) No Service Operations Automation or Order management. 11) Does not allow for Teams or intercompany groups to be part of an estimate. 12) No intercompany communication short of a new added dynamic notes field which seems to be built with 1995 technology. 13) No auto follow up emails for estimates unless in Quote valet and they are somewhat generic. 14) Does not export "ship to" field to MOST integrated software packages. 15) No ability to auto CC office staff when creating an email template.

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

It makes quotes and sends quotes to customers. Offers the ability to make revisions to quotes and keep the originals.

"Happy to be on board with Quote Werks!"

What do you like best?

We've been impressed with the quality of the organization when it comes to their working processes and implementation team. Every employee has been very courteous and most helpful in answering questions or providing additional information needed to move forward with the Quote Werks product What we are going to like best is having all of our product catalogs in one place and uploaded with the appropriate margins placed on them. This should improve many things for us as a company and expedite the proposal and ordering process as well as eliminate errors or forgotten items that can now be bundled together when sold.

What do you dislike?

As with any new system the time it takes to set up the back end of the software so that it performs as you intend it to do. There are some permissions for our users that we will have to play by ear and make adjustments to the longer and more we use the software.

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

Quote Werks should make the proposal process, pricing of products and packages for our customers so much easier as well as more professional looking. Currently we do this in an excel spreadsheet. We sell products for the home and our customers appreciate the visual aspect of seeing the items when giving their final sign off and prior to purchasing. I think Quote Valet will expedite the closing process for our sales team too. We are very new to the product but so far we are very happy with the implementation and the Quote Werks Sales Team.

"Before QuoteWerks"

What do you like best?

What I like best about QuoteWerks it is customizable. You can customize the quotes and other documents, you can also import customized products lists. This is a big plus. Customizing the quotes and other documents was very limited with our previous vendor. Now, if we don't like the way something looks, it is very easy to change. We can also create certain style quotes for a specific customer and name them individually.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I dislike about QuoteWerks is you cannot search by what is in stock. This is the only drawback that I see.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the trial and see if it will fit your needs. If it does, then you can just purchase the license.

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

We are able to have multiple users logged in at the same time and share quotes easily. We are also able to easily integrate with AutoTask to link with our database of customers.

"Professional leads in no time! "

What do you like best?

Our time also uses ConnectWise so using this program helps save time with data entry. Works well with ConnectWise and drastically speeds up our sales process. QuoteWerks makes it easy to customize our forms. Also, being able to do recurring item quotes has made a huge difference for us!

What do you dislike?

We've encountered a few program crashing issues and sometimes takes frequent reloads to get it to cooperate. This is the only flaw I can think of, however.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Several sales executives as well as the adminstrative assistants use QuoteWerks. Our administrators have the ability to set permissions so the assistants can view the quotes without making changes to them. You should take note, however, that whenever a sales person is out of the office, they do not have the same easy access as the would like to.

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

Being able to access real-time pricing and availability has been our biggest benefit of using QuoteWerks.

"Good Tool for Good Price"

What do you like best?

Quotewerks is great because it's a functional tool that integrates with our CRM, allows us to collect payments at the time of sale (QuoteValet), and the price is reasonable.

What do you dislike?

Extremely old design. Requires server version to get use out of it. Hard to grasp if you're a new user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a resource dedicated to learning the software before rolling it out to your team. There are so many places to update information, and you want to ensure someone knows exactly how to use it and can provide support to your team if needed.

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

Problems solved: ease of quoting clients and collecting downpayments at point of sale. Greatest benefit is being able to move on something without waiting for a check to be mailed and deposited, we can get started as soon as they make payment.

"The most adequate tool for quoting I've used thus far."

What do you like best?

I love the ability of QuoteWerks to filter out and target exactly who might be in the market of insurance. It finds potential customers in the area and provides a large database that is easily accessible.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I don't like is that because it is new, it sometimes freezes our computer system. We have been in contact with customer service and they have been immensely patient and helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely one of the most useful tools out there. You should certainly try to implement QuoteWerks into your business sales.

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

We are navigating the murky waters of figuring out how to weed out leads that have been in our system but don't come to fruition. QuoteWerks has allowed us to accomplish this which has been a big benefit to our business.

"Decent software, have used better"

What do you like best?

This software has some basic functionalities and is pretty easy to learn. If you want to put together a basic proposal for a customer to see a price estimate, than this is the right software. It is easy to get the hang of and even young people at the company seemed to be able to use this proficiently in a matter of a week or two. Customer support is pretty available for this.

What do you dislike?

There is some limited functionality on quoting abilities. While our product did not have many complexities, others may have more complex quoting needs and therefore you would want to invest in a different software. Customer support, while available, is not excellent and could definitely be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good software if you want to have a basic quoting software for proposals. If you have a more complex product then you will want to invest in something more capable than this. There are a couple more expensive softwares out there that our neighbor companies used that would have worked better in the long run for us.

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

We are able to provide customers with reasonably accurate quotes that we can have confidence in. We are able to provide these quotes faster to the customer and with better accuracy. We never found a reason that this software provided some inaccuracies.

"A solid program with a few quirks"

What do you like best?

Overall it is pretty easy to get used to working in QuoteWerks for the standard user. The admin isn't hard once you learn the nuance of how it works. I think the document form management could be easier but it isn't anything that makes it not worth dealing with.

What do you dislike?

The general template scheme. The document themselves aren't hard but there is a bit of an oddness to it, the email templates seem to be hit or miss, even the spellcheck doesn't work well as spell check keeps trying to check the spelling the HTML not just the email

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have someone a little geeky on your staff for best results, it isn't normal user manageable.

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

We get professional looking quotes that out rank other businesses in our field. Consistent usage has given us better results in our invoicing ( connected with quick books) and better history with our customer relationship manager.

"Review from an administrator, after 6 years"

What do you like best?

The fact that we have an international presence requires us to be able to provide quotations in multilingual formats. QuoteWerks allows us to fully customize the layouts.

What do you dislike?

The integration to our CRM could have been stronger. While we can migrate to Opportunities in SugarCRM and create new records and even schedule follow up calls in CRM, the process circumvents our CRMs data requirements, rendering the final record incomplete. There are also certain reports that could be a little more "robust".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review your sales model and understand the applications that need to communicate with one another - notably, CRM. CRM and QuoteWerks should work hand-in-hand, as both will drive sales.

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

Greatly assists our pipeline management, allow us to report on capture ratios. We can also quickly review historic data for line items while quoting in a Cost+, List- or static/contract price structure.

"Quoteworks is some of the most reliable software I've come across "

What do you like best?

One of the most unique things I enjoy about quoteworks is tge availability the software allows its users and any user that is. If you are at home working it is an easy to use non expensive software program to use.

What do you dislike?

Overall there are a lot of factors that I like qbout the software like the amount of tools they offer it did take me longer to fet used to using the layout of this software program to navigate the tools being used.

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

I have realized a lot of my reviews are being publishedpre often I am having people I can refer quoteworks to which gives me more loyal business costumers

"Integration with CRM and distributors"

What do you like best?

The relationship with the distributors and important helps in your business and makes this application easy to use while there are tips for beginners.

What do you dislike?

Updates do not come out often and in fact it was possible to correct some jumble in the settings menu and more streamline these moments

Recommendations to others considering the product

To better configure the application, you will need to go through the study of the interface and mentally do not pay attention to the accumulation of items in the settings. They sometimes only interfere

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

For contacts, this is excellent and helps keep in touch with distributors as a whole it meets the requirements

"Integrates well with Connectwise PSA"

What do you like best?

Quotewerks provides an incredibly versatile suite of tools and integrates nearly seamlessly with our PSA of choice (Connectwise). It allowed us to remove a lot of frequent mistakes and oversights in our quoting process and has helped us streamline our sales workflow..

What do you dislike?

The UI of the application is a bit kludgy at times and could use an update to feel more at home one Windows 10. The application is incapable of failing gracefully when encountering API issues with Connectwise which while uncommon do happen.

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

We were disappointed with the built-in quoting functionality of Connectwise and could not believe how much they expected us to pay for Quosal when the functionality should have been built into the system from the beginning.

"To make and send quotes at work is great this application."

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive, with easy access and great flexibility of use, I love its ability to customize templates according to the needs that arise without problems, the technical support is great, a great tool to implement in the work.

What do you dislike?

I would only love that the illustrations are more colorful, the rest is very good and reliable this tool to use the work.

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

It allowed to maintain the organization and track the sales history, optimizing all sales processes in the branch quickly and easily, significantly saving the planned time.

"Easy and powerful quoting and tracking software"

What do you like best?

I love using this software! It is easy to create a quote and deliver to our clients. I can then track the status of the quote, when and who it was approved by, and view profits created by them.

What do you dislike?

The products section takes a lot of time to create. Etilize helps to find products that we can purchase from other vendors but to get our services and products set up took some time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just get the software! Setting up the software can be a pain but once everything is how you want it there is no going back!

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

We needed a software that would streamline our quotes and provide our clients with something that is easy to ready, accept, and pay for if they decide to move on with our recomendations.

"This is Lifesaving!"

What do you like best?

I love the automation of everything and having it all on one screen!

What do you dislike?

There could be easier automation and ability to link multiple systems together for small offices. We only have a couple people so it's not always beneficial to put it on the network (yet).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Think about making linking systems together easier. SOme companies are like mine and may not have benefits to have it on the network for a short time period. We have had issues linking 2 computers together to make information viewable.

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

Optimization and automation has been a big problem for my company early on. With the software, we have automated our process and potentially saved thousands of dollars in operations cost.

"Different kind of proposal solution"

What do you like best?

This one is a different kind of cookie. It's not the usual kind of CRM, which means I had to use a different mindset to get around this. (Hey, some things are a habit.) It might be hard for the average CSR user to let go of a few biases, but once we get around that...

This one works.

1. It's affordable.

2. It does offer a turn-key solution to help us evolve our sales, faster.

3. It's easy to set-up and use.

4. I could see why this would be awesome for first-time users or new business owners.

What do you dislike?

There are, unfortunately, more than a few cons about this software. This is even after we change our mindsets about how to use it.

1. There are limited bells and whistles. (Other CRMs offer more and are more easily customizable.)

2. I had a harder time using its search features. I didn't get the information I wanted it the way I wanted it.

3. The Dashboard is, at best, barely meh.

4. These guys REALLY need to get some apps ready so it's more easily integrated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This isn't the full CRM you might be wanting. What makes it worthwhile is that it's easy to set-up, easy to use, and easy to get others trained on this system. In terms of writing quotes (and only writing quotes), it's pretty efficient. If you need this to work with apps, especially for those out in the field, you'll be disappointed.

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

I could train people fairly easily on this, which would make it excellent for the new business owners. It does make writing/modifying proposals/quotes very easy.

"Solid system but not very flexible"

What do you like best?

The ability to re-order line items, change attributes (i.e. capital purchase vs subscription), add leasing options and connect to vendor databases is very useful.

What do you dislike?

The system is cannot be very customized so users need to be instructed which fields are required and which fields they can skip when filling out information. Although it connects to several CRM systems, the connections cannot be customized so you need to adapt your processes to how the software is set up.

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

We are able to bring in real-time pricing from several vendors in order to quote more competitively. The system also saves time by allowing us to include product literature and proposals before and after quotes within a single PDF file.

"Improved my quotation turnaround by 10 times !"

What do you like best?

I love using QuoteValet , it's a professional way to deliver quotes and ensure that proper approval is given, deposit is paid and terms and conditions are accepted before completing the work,

What do you dislike?

The UI looks a little bit old fashioned, I look forward to seeing some upgrades to the UI with a SaaS based version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend QuoteWerks as its great value for money compared to other competing products, has all the features and functionality you could ask for and it will save you time.

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

We are winning more quotes by delivering them quicker to clients, it has meant our success rate has increased and our sales pipeline is growing quicker .

"Highly recommended"

What do you like best?

There are certain things I can't imagine doing without and QuoteWerks heads up that list. We are an Autotask user and got by for a few years with the built-in quoting tool, which isn't bad. I heard the pitch a for QuoteWerks few times and decided to give it a try. I was immediately impressed with the integration with Autotask, QuickBooks, and my four main I.T. distributors. I'm getting more advanced now, using option groups and other cool features. The best thing is the ability to quickly send a quote, track when it's being opened (and reopened), and getting that magic "Approved" email. Selling hardware, software, and services is unimaginable without it.

What do you dislike?

There are almost no negatives. I wish it were a hosted cloud app, but it works just fine on our network. We use remoteapp to serve it up and it works fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe there's a trial. If you can attend training, do so. It's easy to do the basics but going deeper yields even more benefits.

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

Timely quoting and sales, Easy options and choices for clients. Seamless integration with Autotask and QuickBooks.

"QuoteWerks Improves Sales Effeciency"

What do you like best?

The Etilize integration and direct distributor ordering is a very time saving feature. Additionally, the ability to fully integrate with Connectwise has improved our process tremendously. We can customize the reports to look exactly like we want them to. This makes us look more professional than our competition not using QuoteWerks.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a bit cluttered and outdated, and sometimes it can be confusing on how to do something, but the documentation and access to support solve any issues we have had.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We highly recommend Quotewerks over the competition like Quosal as it is easier to use, less expensive and fast. The integrations with the PSA systems and QuickBooks are amazing. We save a lot of time and money using the Etilize and Distributor integrations.

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

We are able to produce nicer looking proposals faster and more efficiently saving us time and closing more deals. Without this tool we'd still be producing quotes in Word manually or just sending stuff our from QuickBooks.

"Best Quote Software out there!"

What do you like best?

I love QuoteWerks for providing quotes and estimates and more to my clients! I like that this software is easy to use and helps to increase efficiency and save time for my team!

What do you dislike?

It took me a while to connect it with my other CRM systems - but, it can be done!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Worth a try for a basic quote system!

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

This platform allows me to quickly give send and accept quotes and bids for projects. It also allows me to communicate with clients.

"Great time saver and profession looking quotes"

What do you like best?

By using Etilize we can see the pricing of all our vendors and choose who to purchase from. The quotes are very professional when sending to customers. Ease of use. If you like you can just open a new quote and just start typing. Being able to save as a PDF, email or print the quote. I constantly use all three options.

What do you dislike?

The integration with QuickBooks is an issue at times. It is hard to determine when to stop using Quotewerks and when to start using QuickBooks. I have tried Quote Valet and in our business it was not really necessary. I cannot pull the sales tax rate from QuickBooks. Would like to create a list of most common items used at Vendors so as to not have to search all the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the training classes they offer and watch the online videos that are provided. It helps in selecting the correct products and the trainers are excellent.

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

From quoting to invoice completion it is becoming a more streamlined process. We are able to see where we can order at the best price and who has it in stock and order accordingly. With the dash board you can get useful data on your open and closed quotes for tracking purpose. If in a larger organization it would be beneficial to have the dashboard up on a large screen for all to see.

"Improve our ability to quote in minutes"

What do you like best?

The Etilize subscription and real-time integration with our Distributors allows to see stock availability and which warehouse the items are located at. This allow us to provide a realistic delivery time frame inclusive of shipping cost. The items with pictures and description also provides a professional touch to quotes.

What do you dislike?

You have to purchase multiple user licenses to allow for concurrent access.

There is no built-in importation duties calculation for items thats attract imporation taxes and fees.

"QuoteWerks offers powerful quoting"

What do you like best?

It has multiple templates for quotes/proposals - this is good as you may want to include different information depending on product lines quoted, but at the same time make sure the same information is included everytime you quote the same thing.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could select my favorite line items to appear at the top of a list and make it fast to select those frequently used items.

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

We use QuoteWerks to manage quotes for new prospects and existing clients. QuoteWerks has a great search capability so I never lose sight of recently created quotes.

"Great quoting tool"

What do you like best?

Easy installation, lisensing model is easy to you and they updated the program at least 3-4 time an year.

What do you dislike?

It does not work with my accounting software, sage, however it does work with others.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I believe this is a very powerful tool, it has several integrations available that makes your life easier and makes you look good to your customers. I don’t think it’s too expensive, however they do have addons that can make life easier but will bring the bill higher.

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

It makes easier for my sales team to create, edit it and send quotes, no need to use excel and it works with out vendors for easy pricing and part catalogs as well.

"Quotewerks review"

What do you like best?

Quotewerks has the ability to see when customers view your quote which is a great trigger for sales manager to follow up on their proposal. The ability for the software to integrate with CRM and outlook is also helpful since we receive customer inquiries via CRM. The software is easy to use and set up.

What do you dislike?

The reporting function is not the best and to use remotely we must use a VPN to access it. The Quote Valet add-on is helpful for viewing existing quotes but not necessarily for creating new quotes.

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

Providing sales quotes to customers and following up on proposals.

"Great Proposal Software"

What do you like best?

The software was very easy to use and gave relatively accurate numbers for our quotes. Super easy to use and better quality than microsoft excel

What do you dislike?

There is not much that I dislike. Wish you could connect more CRM applications and sales information

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product for businesses of all types! Pricing is great and customer service is pretty good. Allows you to combine all the important information about your business and have it in one place. I would definitely recommend this and I will continue to use in my business!

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

Easy to set goals for my business and helps include customer information into our practice.

"Quotewerks "

What do you like best?

The ease of use is the best feature. We have some users that are not "technically" savvy. They have been able to pick up using it right away.

What do you dislike?

I still have not found anything too distasteful about the software. I wish I had more vendors that utilize Etilize. That would be the only problem we have found.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the trial version and make sure you watch their YouTube videos.

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

Our goal was to simplify the quoting process for the less technical sales personnel. We also wanted to decrease the time from initial contact to providing our clients with a quote. Quotewerks has done that for us. The integration between Quotewerks and QuickBooks has been the most beneficial. This integration speeds up the process from the sale of the project to the ordering of materials. All around we have found QuoteWerks to be beneficial.

"Quotewerks - I wish I had purchased this 15 years ago"

What do you like best?

I really like the capability to search my vendors and get best prices and descriptions.

What do you dislike?

The help is not always easy to use. When searching for an answer, it is often more helpful to read the manual than go to help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider how many quotes you do per year and evaluate the cost of preparing them against the license.

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

1.) Get a signed "contract" from customers accepting a quote.

2.) Get realtime pricing and content from vendors

3.) Format and track quotes in a convenient format

4.) Interface to Autotask so there is no duplicate demographic data entry.

5.) Upload vendor content along with contract.

"QuoteWerks in Review"

What do you like best?

QuoteWerks has one of the simplest user friendly interfaces of the sales products out there, at least to my knowledge based on products I have experience with. It’s easy to figure out, reliable, and sleek.

What do you dislike?

The only problem I have encountered thus far with QuoteWerks is that it’s software does sometimes run a bit slow for my pace.

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

QuoteWerks provides benefits to a wide range of customers, and a wide solution of problems. The more I work with the program the more I discover and uncover all the uses it has the potential for.

"Excellent Software"

What do you like best?

The configurator is a great tool. When we hire a new sales person on, we can have them use that and as they go through, it will recommend items that go with that item and will not offer the wrong option. In all, very easy to get a new person up and running.

What do you dislike?

Reports are hard to setup. I have been able to create 3 but would like more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have someone that understands software and read the directions on how to make changes.

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

Less mistakes on quotes and orders. This includes both solving and the benefits we have received from the software.

"One of the best!"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up and easy to use. Minimal "bells and whistles" keeps you on task and making quotes. Great for the first step of the sales process only and sending out for invoicing to another product.

What do you dislike?

As with any new system the time it takes to set up the back end of the software so that it performs as you intend it to do. There are some permissions for our users that we will have to play by ear and make adjustments to the longer and more we use the software.

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

We get professional looking quotes that out rank other businesses in our field. Consistent usage has given us better results in our invoicing ( connected with quick books) and better history with our customer relationship manager

"Great Flexible Tool for the whole process"

What do you like best?

I've been using Quotewerks for several years now. It pulls from our Connectwise CRM, creates the quote, and then manages the entire process through followup, approval, purchasing, receiving and billing. No more worries that something will fall through the cracks.

Quotewerks is very flexible, and quick to act on reasonable feature requests.

What do you dislike?

The process to save a quote can be slow at times due to the connectwise integration. Some processes could be streamlined to fewer clicks.

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

We moved from Excel spreadsheet quotes to Quotewerks. We now have almost no mistakes on proposals, I don't miss checking and rechecking formulas. Previously we had a lot of duplicate entries and manual processes, Quotewerks automates everything from the quote through the invoice and no duplication!

"Great tool, just requires you to put in the time and effort to make it work"

What do you like best?

Ability to pull current inventory from participating vendors with pricing and support materials.

What do you dislike?

Estimates are very difficult to layout and get right without programming knowledge. Optional items are a pain to get to look proper on a quote to indicate they are optional and not included. I think it's very difficult to link spec sheets and pictures to items in the inventory.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Put in the time and money to deploy it properly or you won't be satisfied with the results. It's a powerful tool and takes training and time to implement. You also need to commit to maintaining the database to keep it current.

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

Professional looking quotes delivered electronically. Our quotes look much more professional and the customers enjoy accepting online with all the tracking that goes with it.

"Great quoting software and proposal delivery"

What do you like best?

My absolute favorite feature of QuoteWerks is QuoteValet, which enables you to send your proposal to a potential client in the form of a webpage. They can select optional add-on items, ask questions and even approve and sign. It has given the company I work for a great edge against our competitors. Since using QuoteWerks, we have won several high dollar contracts. Our customers love how professional the proposals look and we love how everything seems so automated. You can also integrate it with other software, such as Sedona. The integration is pretty seamless and has cut down on the amount of time put into creating new jobs. The bundling feature enables us to create quick proposals for some of our more popular security, camera and automation packages.

What do you dislike?

My only qualm with the software is that the user licenses are set on a 24 hour timeline. If I log in to QuoteValet for even just 3 minutes and then log out, that user license is still registered as being used until the following day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to purchase an extra license if you are using QuoteValet and have employees in the office who often log in to keep track of sales and proposals.

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

The biggest issue we faced before QuoteWerks was being able to quickly and efficiently send a customer who lives 3 hours away a proposal without having to mail it or have a rep drive out there to get the physical signature. QuoteWerks has completely fixed that issue.

"The best quoting software that is out there!"

What do you like best?

Being in the technology field I love the capability to pull pricing, product information and pictures directly from our distributors. Also the QuoteValet feature is amazing and the customers like the easy process of approving quotes and paying.

What do you dislike?

Patiently waiting for the cloud version of QuoteWerks so that it can be used on any of my devices from anyplace.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just try it out and you will love it! Support has been great also!

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

Instead of having word files disorganized this has saved me a ton of time and really organized quoting process.

"Quotewerks saves hours of my time"

What do you like best?

I hate duplicating work and entering useless information and I don't have to do that with QW. It pulls descriptions and part #'s from Etilize. I can create a PO and send it directly to QuickBooks. I only have add the products that I sell to QuickBooks. the list goes on. But the time saving is the most valuable benefit of using the program.

What do you dislike?

I think most of my dislikes are things that could be fixed with additional training. creating layouts are a challenge for me as well as creating the "item numbers" that work with both QuickBooks and Connectwise.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it. - there is no down side

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

it creates a visually appealing quote in minutes that would take hours with QuickBooks or Excel

"Solid tool that gets the job done. "

What do you like best?

This is a great tool that does what it’s supposed to do. It’s easy to make changes and adjustments, easier to write in specific discounts, and I like the ability to email my quotes out directly from the system.

What do you dislike?

It could be easier to learn... took a long time to get comfortable in the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool! It’s not the best fit for someone who is not technical, but if you are comfortable learning how to use new software then you will do fine with Quotewerks.

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

Used to send out quotes to prospects and clients.

"QuoteWerks works"

What do you like best?

QW has a lot of possibilities for customization and it is quite easy to use. It is stable and new versions are constantly provided with new features.

What do you dislike?

The UI is a bit old fashinoned and the report generator belongs to the 60's. We need a real WYSIWYG/grphical tool for this...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very US centric but still able to handle currencies etc. Integrations to distributors etc. is focused around IT and the US market.

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

Sales people entering their sales orders. QW works as a middleware for us between Maximizer CRM and our Navision ERP.

"Not a fan"

What do you like best?

It's hard for me to find something that I like about QW. I mean, it does the job and it presents our proposals in contracts in an organized fashion. But we can't use the Quote Valet feature or any of the other stuff.

What do you dislike?

Like I mentioned, we can't use most of the features. Also, the communication between QW and CRM is awful. If we close something in QW (won or lost) it almost never closes it in CRM. We have to go back in and manually close the opportunity in our CRM. Also, the projected revenue is practically a made up number. It never matches. We've checked the links and everything -- still wrong. If we turn something over and then make a change, we can't resubmit. In our industry, it's pretty imperative that we can make changes to existing orders.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Update and make communication more seamless

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

Organized and professional quotes and contracts.

"We LOVE QuoteWerks!"

What do you like best?

Quote Valet is an amazing tool. The insight you get into the sales process, and what your customers are doing is invaluable. The integration with both QB and Connectwise is also extremely valuable.

What do you dislike?

It can be a challenge to get the customization done, but well worth it in the end.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

JUST DO IT! It will make your life easier and give you a more professional look in the process.

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

QuoteWerks make it easier and faster to deliver accurate quotes and proposals to my customers .

"Solid tool, professional support, dated architecture"

What do you like best?

QuoteWerks is powerful, flexible, and reliable. Clients like the online approvals, sales people like being able to bang out a quote quickly, and I like how well it integrates into the rest of our systems, including Quickbooks and ConnectWise. Also, their support is great.

What do you dislike?

It's based on an architecture that's about fifteen years out of date. A client application runs on the workstation that hits a flat file database on a file server. We long ago moved it to a RemoteApp/Terminal Server environment, and you will too if you want to be able to use it in and out of the office.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Put it on a terminal server.

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

Quotewerks handles all of our quotes, large and small.

"Love it!"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to give very detailed descriptions with the products I am quoting. In IT it really helps to show exactly what the product you are selling can do. This helps to eliminate a lot of questions and close sales faster.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes to speak of. If anything, there was a slight learning curve when I first started using QuoteWerks, but that was very quickly done away with after a couple of test quotes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend time during the trial period and play with all the options. I found that there things QuoteWerks was capable of doing for me that I had been trying to do with QB and Word documents before.

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

I really like using QuoteWerks for submitting proposals to my customers. I was using the quoting tool built into my accounting software before and spent a lot of time explaining what each item in my quote was to customers. QuoteWerks allows me to include pictures and much better descriptions of the items I am quoting. I have found that I spend less time having to explain things and I have actually seen an upswing in the number of quotes I have closed deals on since using QuoteWerks.

"Love This Quoting/Proposing Tool"

What do you like best?

Very capable quoting and proposal solution with a ton of flexibility. Also love the Quote Valet solution that allows a professional, electronic version of the proposal, along with the availability for customer selected options and updated tax and deposit amounts, at the customer's fingertips.

What do you dislike?

There's really not much to dislike. I guess if I had to be nitpicky...I'd like a little more rubust graphical interface, an 'online' version of the software, and a little more tech support, but again...that's being picky.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You cannot go wrong for the investment. They have several different levels of the software and continue to improve on the solution every week. There is a little bit of a learning curve, but it doesn't take too long and before you know it, you'll be putting out thorough and professional looking proposals that will wow your prospects and set you apart from your competition!

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

We have been able to deliver excellent looking proposals to our prospects/customers capturing all necessary costs and giving the customer the ability to make changes on the fly. QuoteValet also links directly to my merchant services gateway allowing customers to pay either the deposit or whole investment amount via credit card right from the solutions. A professional and robust quoting and proposal solution!

"Streamlined Quote to Order process"

What do you like best?

Fast and easy quoting, updated pricing and ordering from vendors, and secure electronic ordering for clients. Integrates with my PSA and accounting package. We definitely make more sales with this.

What do you dislike?

I really don't have any dislike's other than it took me too long to go ahead with it. I should of done this years ago. There are only a few other vendors out there that do this type of thing. After evaluating many of them, I settled on QuoteWerks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take it for a trial spin, compare it to others, pick the 1 or 2 things you really need and evaluate on that. My biggest things were online ordering for clients and import/export to CVS/Excel. QuoteWerks is the only one I found to be able to do that.

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

Quoting is faster and easier, online order forms make order to delivery times faster, electronic ordering from distributors make for quick and simple processing, without a missed order. Keeping margins in check is also a big plus. We set the default markup or profit, and the default prices are set. I think our deals are closing with much more margin than they did before.

What do you like best?

QuoteWerks works well with our ConnectWise package. It allows us to integrate our quotes with our billing and procurement systems without manual work. I love automation.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much I dislike about this product. Whenever I've had a question or issue, their technical consultants help troubleshoot and get us headed in the right direction.

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

QW allows us to automate and streamline a number of roles in the company from Engagement employees to Sales employees to Accounting employees. We have benefited greatly from the automation.
