Bidsketch
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.

It is great for presentations to customers and keeping them engaged in your presentation. Although it is great for creating a highly customizable presentation, some users may want even more control over font, font size and font color. Some of my colleagues have expressed some dissatisfaction with the formatting as well as saving any formatting changes that have made.

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.

  • Quick support
  • Wish it was easier to turn the links on and off.
  • Some of their custom block styles could be easier to edit.

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.

At the beginning, there is a slight learning curve, but once you get the way out of it, it becomes easy to use.

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.

Onboarding was very organized and simple. Our account manager made it easy for our team to learn the tool by organizing several group training sessions.

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.

Qwilr was a really quick and easy setup, which I think is great for smaller teams that have simple sales processes and cycles. Once more complication is it will fall short in providing the level of control and detail that is needed for a larger sales team. The end product is very elegant but comes down to the needs of the organization.

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.
