What Is the Difference Between a Quote and a Proposal?
While quotes and proposals have similar elements, they are actually very different.
A quote is shorter and more to the point. A quote lists the seller, the prospective buyer and the items they are buying with a total. Sometimes the quote will include some specification sheet or literature about the products or services being quoted. Terms and conditions are sometimes also included. Often, companies sending out quotes are sending out lots of them that are very similar.
Proposals in contrast are longer and more detailed. They will include information introducing the seller, differentiating factors of the seller vs the competition, generalized benefits to the solution being proposed, a scope of work, and a service agreement. It will usually just list a single price total for the entire solution, although sometimes it will also include line item detail similar to what you would see in a quote.
