Cloud quoting software can deliver a range of benefits for security businesses, streamlining the quotation and sales process, automating manual tasks, and helping you monitor and improve your processes. This article, we’ll look at the five main benefits of migrating to business quotation software for security business owners.
1. Streamline The Process
Quotation software can streamline the full sales process by automating and simplifying a lot of the work associated with creating, tracking, and following up quotations. By using a business quoting software platform, your team can create customisable templates for your quotes, letting you quickly create and distribute new quotes on request with just a few clicks. This saves time without compromising accuracy, allowing your sales team to achieve more with their time.
Creating quotes is, traditionally, an extremely time-consuming and laborious process – and is subsequently prone to human errors and inaccuracies. With a dedicated quotation software platform, most of this data entry is automated, so that what may have taken hours or days can be completed in minutes, and you’ll also save time wasted entering data into multiple systems, or crosschecking quotes for mistakes.
3. Save Money
Quote software saves your business money in several ways – first by reducing the manual labour costs involved with generating and managing quotes, and secondly, by providing access to up-to-date pricing information from a single source of truth, helping you stay competitive in the security market. You can use this data to identify areas for potential cost savings, analysing past orders, quotations, and customer communications to resolve pain points and pursue market opportunities. You can also test different pricing strategies through multiple variations of the quote, with A/B analysis to identify the most competitive solution for your customers.
4. Easier Tracking
A quotation platform makes it easier for your business to track quotes and estimates over time, identifying bottlenecks, sales objections, and updates. For existing quotes, you can track which sales member created the quote, when they are created and followed up, which services and products were included in each one, costs and margins, and so on. This all-round visibility makes it easier to manage customer relationships, and also identifies areas for improvement throughout your sales process.
5. Increased Competitiveness
Manual quotations are still very much the norm in the security sector, so by adopting quoting software, you may provide your business with a competitive edge over other companies that do not utilise this technology. By creating accurate quotes in a short turnaround, you’ll be able to respond faster than other businesses to quote requests, leading to more sales and increased profits.
