NiftyQuoter is so simple to use that when we have a new employee it is not difficult to train them ow to creat quotes. I also think that most customers appreciate the ease of navigating in NiftyQuoter. If you are pumping out between 25-50 quotes per week it is super easy to track them all as well.

I really appreciate PandaDoc's e-signature capabilities. It is so easy to upload a document, add the text to fill in blank fields, and send the documents to one or multiple other parties for s-signatures. It is so simple to add the signature field, and I love that PandaDoc automatically sends emails after a party has signed. It makes tracking the signature process and progress so much easier!

Pros
NiftyQuoter
  • Is easy to create new proposals with templates, themes & modules based approach.
  • It provides us data about what is happening on the client's side. When they reviewed our proposal, how many times, and who they shared it with.
  • Provides good integration with many other apps, which help us save time.

PandaDoc
  • PandaDoc allows our team to create and send detailed sales proposals and quotes with the use of their templates.
  • The use of collaborative editing is also beneficial because our team is able to have multiple users edit and comment on documents simultaneously.
  • Document tracking is useful because we are able to receive real-time notifications and updates on the proposal process.

Cons
NiftyQuoter
  • I personally wish there was a function to switch from a military time to a regular time like most people would use.
  • I think that it could be more clear to the client as to where they need to go to accept the quote. Often times I will get calls saying they do not see an accept the quote option available.
  • NiftyQuoter has a hard time for some reason remembering your password. It seems most of the time I have to manually type my email and password in and I wish it would just remember that for me.

  • The automatic snapping of added fields in templates could be toggleable to more easily place fields where they need to be
  • When fields are duplicated, the generated Field IDs can get long (e.g. Text_1, Text_1_1, Text_1_1_1, etc)
  • Loading screens are sometimes long

The reason I gave it a rating of 7 is because it's probable, but not for sure. This is because there are a few little things we don't love about pandadoc. Mostly that there is not conditional logic such as: they must either fill this field out OR this one. Also it's a little pricey. But we'll probably stay because it's good enough and a pain to switch to something new

Usability
NiftyQuoter
This Software is so easy to use we can typically train people on how to use the basics within an hour or two. Some of the more unique features will take longer but all in all, it is super user-friendly and I have heard very little otherwise from our team. I will say for me personally it is a truly great software that makes my work way easier than it would be without it.

Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to use. There can be a slightly steep learning curve to get fully in on the system. The new editor v2 has really improved usability and allows us to collaborate on documents simultaneously. Once the templates and library items are set up, a new document, whether it be a sales or HR document, takes very little time to complete.

The documents load quickly for the most part but sometimes if there are larger documents with a high number of variables it could take a bit longer to get the document to show up. Most of the time the document comes on the screen relatively quickly allowing for quick access to documents to be edited and sent out.

Support Rating
NiftyQuoter
Anytime we have had any issues there team is very quick to respond and helo us through any issues that may arise. This is quite unique as much other software that we use if we end up needing assistance we either have to wait days/weeks for an answer or we outright get no answers from them.

Recently I could not upload a pdf to a contract - support was very responsive and easy to work with. They got back to me the next day with an apparent fix - however when I opened the document nothing had changed. I then could not respond to the rep who was helping me because it was a "no-reply address", the problem still has not been solved and we had to make alternate arrangements to get this to the client. Never had it happen before and was only with this one contract.

Implementation was before the time I was here at Riafox, however, support has been great in assisting to merge spaces and upgrade to 2.0 Editor.

To be able to block certain fields within templates and contracts, so that the commercial team can negotiate the rest and adapt them but cannot change those purely legal clauses that should not be negotiated or changed without the approval of the legal department. I also find the design more intuitive

Return on Investment
NiftyQuoter
  • Our proposals approval ratio increased by 30% since we started using NiftyQuoter.
  • It is slightly more time-consuming than I would have expected.

  • It has helped increase our sales productivity by allowing us to get contracts back more quickly.
  • Has helped with employee efficiency in contract writing.
  • It has helped our company find contract writing mistakes before they get to our clients and cause confusion.
  • The one negative would be the increase in costs associated with using this software, which seems to increase each year at renewal.
