Overview for Audio Visual Professionals
QuoteWerks starts at $15/month, one time fee (No $1000+ price tags). We pride ourselves on keeping our price down at an affordable level where you can immediately get a return on your investment. We can do this because we have tens of thousands of users. We also keep costs down because we choose reliable technologies that just work, so our support costs are low and you can always reach our support line.
Something that sets us apart from the competition is how we are seamlessly integrated into your normal workflow. We are able to retrieve contact information from your CRM package (no double entry) and quickly generate a quote based on this potential customer's details. We then write back relevant details to the CRM package with follow-up call information, a link to the document in QuoteWerks, and most importantly — the Opportunity information! If you do not have a CRM, QuoteWerks integrates with Outlook and also has a built-in Contact Database.
When the customer decides to move forward with the deal, we are able to easily transfer the details of the order to QuickBooks or Peachtree as an Estimate/Order/Invoice, so you do not need to recreate all of these details. If the items do not already exist in QuickBooks or Peachtree, we will create them for you. An issue that we have seen with users in your industry in particular is that you could potentially sell thousands of items, but in reality only sell a handful of them on a regular basis. With QuoteWerks, you do not need to clutter your accounting system with parts that you never sell.
