This post is fun since I know both of the companies who developed these proposal systems… and they’re right here in Indiana! Perhaps it’s a Purdue versus Anderson University thing! Sproutbox developed Proposable and Studio Science has just released Octiv (previously TinderBox), both software as a service proposal solutions for the web.
Proposable is a lower cost solution, starting at $19 for basic, $29 for pro and $79 per month for a team. Along with Highrise integration, it appears to be a very capable system for creating and sending rich content proposals – as well as monitoring the activity of the prospect who’s accessing the proposal.
Here’s an associated video for their product:
As with anything Kristian’s team touches, Octiv is well-polished and picks up where Proposable leaves off. The entry level package is for a sales team at $79 per month and the packages grow to $999 per month and up for Enterprise clients. Octiv also has a payment module upsell and other unique features.
And the Octiv video:
Both applications offer a communications system for feedback and monitoring the progress of the proposal. I’m excited about the possibilities for both of these Proposal systems. As a devout user of Freshbooks Invoicing, I’d really love to see an integration of these systems to Freshbooks! Freshbooks has a rough estimate system (sort of an Invoice draft) that can be sent to a client and reviewed, but they don’t have all the features of Proposable nor Octiv.
Congratulations to Kristian on rolling this product out. No doubt he and his team will be successful with it! Kristian’s branding firm is one of the best in the world. If I had a software as a service product and wanted it properly branded for enterprise growth, his firm would always be my choice.
