Conga Composer

There are so many opportunities to use Conga, and that's what I love about it. We use it for a few of our documents, but now I've become aware of how many more of our processes we can move from manual entry to automative processes. It's probably well suited for organizations that use word documents, write ups, and other items- probably wouldn't be well suited for organizations just needing to see the numbers

QuoteWerks

QuoteWerks really shines in its flexibility and powerful integrations with multiple CRM/account systems. It is well suited for technical users but isn't as streamlined as some of the more vertical integrations like the ones that exist between ConnectWise Sell and Manage. Their commitment to offering reasonable pricing without moving to a per user/month model also makes it attractive for companies trying to save money on recurring monthly spend.

Pros

Conga Composer

  • We use Conga primarily for document generation.
  • An example is Generation of Proposals
  • Another example is generation of quotes
  • We have also used Conga to generate invoices
  • At times we have used Conga to generate formal documents for Govt purposes. Essentially any type of document that is based on Salesforce data is a good use case for Conga.
Naveen Gabrani | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuoteWerks

  • QuoteWerks integrates well with our ERP, Connectwise and pulls the information back and forth well between the two.
  • QuoteWerks integrates with our Distributors, Ingram Micro and Tech Data and pulls current pricing into the quote, which saves time having to go back and forth between applications.
  • QuoteWerks provides professional looking quotes that we can submit to our customers.

Cons

Conga Composer

  • While it is a much easier experience than using code to arrive at a document solution, it can still get VERY technical. Beyond the click and drag style of document that you see in the demonstrations.
  • When it goes wrong, finding out WHERE it has gone wrong can be maddening. There is a lot of support out there but that sometimes translates to a vast amount of options to investigate when troubleshooting.
Simon Whight | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuoteWerks

  • There is much room for improvement in setting up new users and transferring QW from one computer to another. You have to call QW and get a seed number which can at times be a hassel for a California based business because QW support works 9 to 5 Eastern Standard - A little extra time in the afternoon would be much appreciated
  • The pricing for Quote valet combined with the cost for annual update maintenance puts it in the price range of web based subscription programs
  • The program needs to run on a users computer and therefore when there is a computer problem the rep can't quote - As noted above it is a hassle to set up new users or transfer the program. This shortcoming is a serious one and made us consider a web based quoting solution. However, as of this date none of them offer the functionality of QW. However, the technology is moving fast and I will continue to look for the day when I am not dependent on an individual machine.

It's a big part of what we do internally, so would renew as it saves us time and is part of our process. In order to switch we'd need a good price break with same functions available

Although I have been using QuoteWerks for 15 years, there are still many features in the current version I have not fully explored. It's just *that* feature-rich! Still, there are other features and online delivery methods currently awaiting, plus new features I am very excited to engage. The price of QuoteWerks is also quite reasonable, keeping our data exactly as we want it - on premise and affordable!

In my experience, QuoteWerks is incredibly easy to get started with and very intuitive to putting together your first quote. It also has a depth of features that has not only allowed us to enhance our own internal quote / order / invoice production, but also implemented into other businesses has increased their quote production significantly.

QuoteWerks is a very stable, robust solution. In my experience: bugs in the software are rare; any crashes or system failures are usually due to other infrastructure issues rather than the software itself, i.e. a problem with the network or server, an issue with a.n.other piece of software on the User's workstation that has a knock-on effect on QuoteWerks.

This product appears to work well. It was not a fit for us this time, but we would consider in future

Once set up and running, and particularly when running the more reliable, faster Corporate edition rehosted to SQL Server, then QuoteWerks performs very well. The only reason for the slight mark down here is that QuoteWerks is very sensetive to having a database connection. If there is an issue whereby the connection to the server is lost (network glitch for example) then whereas Outlook (or a.n.other piece of software) might just wait and poll in 30 seconds time, QuoteWerks will crash and potentially a User lose all changes to the document(s) that they were working on.

Quotewerks Support and the UK Distributor here have always been responsive to our requests and in particular helped us out when we need some new functionality which then got added in the next build...this really impressed me and showed that where case was made, they readily embraced it and the new build was completed within 60 days.

I do not have any key insights on the implementation so I cannot provide any valuable information here. I do know, however, that the process went well when we switched from a old platform to a new hyperconverged solution to host Quotewerks. It seemed to be a quick process and our engineer was able to do so almost seamlessly.

Alternatives Considered

Conga Composer

We chose Conga due to the price point (cost for licenses). It was among the more affordable options but we did not have to sacrifice quality. In addition, the integration with Salesforce is key for us. We are able to connect student interactions and actions with our mailings. We also like how it is user friendly
Wendy Hamstra-Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuoteWerks

At the time that we selected QuoteWerks there was not quoting software "married" to ConnectWise. We viewed both products and since the products were very similar we chose the product that more closely fit our budget. QuoteWerks fit the bill.

We've implemented QuoteWerks in both micro ("one man band") businesses as well as much larger organisations. With QuoteWerks Corporate editions option to host the backend database on SQL Server (a very powerful and scaleable database platform) it's possible to work effectively with QuoteWerks in an organisation with many 100 Users. The flexibility of the product also lends itself very well to evolving with a growing business and having various individual user configurations to help them work best with the software in their individual role in the organisation.

Return on Investment

Conga Composer

  • It provided a consistent quote template...everyone's quotes looked like we wanted them to.
  • It protected data integrity by controlling the output formats (i.e. PDF vs. Word).
  • It worked seamlessly behind the scenes making it easy for the team to be self sufficient generating documents.
Rick Scouffas | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuoteWerks

  • Positive: organized, consistent quotes
  • Positive: reduced time to generate/modify quotes
  • Negative: has sometimes given our customers the false impression that we are providing an exact quote, not a cost estimate. We have been trying several different ways of expressing this on the quote.
