I think Bidsketch would work well for any small business or freelancer looking for a low-cost, simple to use proposal software solution. It's quick and easy to set up and provides everything you need for more cases. If you're looking for something with more flexibility or features that Bidsketch does not offer then you may need to keep looking.

OpenText RFX is well suited with Smaller or midsize organizations where it can be used as standalone solution. For large organization with Custom procurement processes and integration requirements with other business products like SAP, there are better solutions are available which can be evaluated with OpenText RFX product. Custom development processes are limited in OpenText RFX and there are some solutions like SAP SRM and Ariba can be evaluated.

Cons
Bidsketch
  • REALLY PRICEY for a small business/freelancer that doesn't do a lot of proposals each month. Would be nice if they offered a per proposal pricing for the smaller guys.
  • Wish there was more customization of the design/layout to better fit in with branding.
  • Also would like to be able to mark a proposal private.

Usability
Bidsketch
I'd say Bidsketch is very easy to use. I don't think most people would have any problem getting comfortable with this software. I was able to get up and running very quickly. Their template library is a great resource to get a professional proposal up and out the door fast.

Support Rating
Bidsketch
Although I didn't need to reach out to support much, they seemed to do a very good job. I've also heard great things about the team through people I've talked to so I wouldn't expect anyone to run into issues with regards to their support. Their support definitely was not a factor in my ultimately not sticking with the product.

We used DocSend to track our outgoing proposals but after testing Bidsketch we never returned back. It is simply better suited for us as we send out tens of proposals every week and the professional output and management of proposals won us over.

Solutions like SAP Ariba are better suited for large enterprises with Custom processes and integration requirements with other ERP software like SAP ERP or S/4HANA products which are been used most of the fortune 500 companies. OpenText RFX is good for small and medium organizations with limited customization and integration requirements.

Return on Investment
Bidsketch
  • The proposals do look professional (even if you can't fully customize to your brand) and make a great impression on the potential client.
  • The cost of Bidsketch is prohibitive if you don't do a lot of proposal writing on a regular basis.
