I like that you can dial out so many leads and double the efficiency of the agent. The only thing that bothers me is sometimes, system down issue.

Do you need consistency of messaging across multiple countries/products/divisions/languages? Do you want to be able to tailor content access per team/division/country? Do you want to be able to report on/track use by user, document, searches, compliance, etc.? If so, PMAPS is the most versatile proposal management tool I've come across so far.

Pros
PhoneBurner
  • PhoneBurner connects to Hubspot so that my team doesn't have to go back and forth.
  • The amount of time it takes to get through a list of calls has almost been cut in half.
  • The opportunity to do leave a voicemail without having to leave it on each call is a huge time saver.

  • Searching for boilerplate material--PMAPS allows you to search by keywords, as well as filter by categories (e.g., implementation, training, company information, etc.) I set up all the categories, subcategories, audience types, etc. We used to spend a significant amount of time searching for previously written information, but now we can find it within seconds. I only use it to search for information stored within PMAPS, but you can also set it up to point at other places to search for information as well.
  • Manage proposals--PMAPS has a dashboard that lists all of the proposals I'm working on as well as key information that I want to have available for each of them. You can decide what information you want to show on your dashboard (I use mine to show due date, production date, review date, salesperson for proposal, etc.) It is very convenient to have all of that information available at a glance. PMAPS also has a built-in calendar that will show you key dates for all of your proposals.
  • Generate custom documents--PMAPS allows you to set up templates that you can use to generate documents. You can set up forms that allow yourself or other users to specify what information should be included in that document, and then PMAPS will generate the document based on how users respond to the questions (e.g., what references to include, what products to list, etc.).
  • Word Replacement--PMAPS allows you to set up codes that will automatically be replaced with the correct term when you generate the proposal. For example, in our boilerplate information, any place where I would want the final proposal to say the prospect's name, I use the code <>. Those codes are automatically replaced with the prospect's name for that proposal when either I generate a document or when I simply select the icon that searches for and replaces codes.
  • Easily edit boilerplate documents--PMAPS allows you to easily edit boilerplate information. You can select a document one at a time, or you can select a whole bunch of documents at once (simply by doing a search and/or filter to limit the results to the documents you want to edit) and download them onto your computer, edit, and then re-upload.
  • Store material--PMAPS allows you to store Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF documents.

  • There are times when I'm having a problem and I call the general line and have to leave a message and then wait for someone to call me back. I'd like to be able to speak with a live person every time.
  • I'd like to see the program handle Excel documents with the ease that it handles a Word document.

I have been a PMAPS user for over 5 years. I started on their client/server version and renewed/upgraded this past year to their cloud version, WebPro. When you have a good product that delivers all the bells and whistles you need, there is no need to go searching anywhere else. We have a great partnership with the PMAPS staff and find them very resourceful and appreciative of our business

Usability
PhoneBurner
PhoneBurner as I said before, has an excellent graphical interface, super friendly, with menus that the user can easily find and program the calls. The layout is good, fast, and has little delay and errors. I really like the tool and from the beginning, I had no difficulty with the usability.

We selected PhoneBurner because it is very easy to integrate with Zoho CRM and if you have a silver plan, you can do a lot such as Sending SMS and unlimited calling, you can also record and drop voicemail, timezone calling is automatic. It is a good dialer to use if you are part of sales.

I did the vendor analysis and narrowed my selection to Qvidian (which I had used before) and PMAPS (which I had not). I've never regretted my choice. In ease of use alone, PMAPS wins hands down. We're able to use PMAPS when collecting intelligence from our Subject Matter Experts in ways that weren't possible with other tools.

Return on Investment
PhoneBurner
  • [I believe] it has cost me a fortune in wasted time trying to make the Hubspot integration [work] (to no avail).
  • [I believe] if the Hubspot integration actually worked, we would probably get decent ROI from the speedier calling.

  • I don't have any actual ROI numbers readily available but I will say that compared to our last solution (a home-grown document repository), PMAPS has made every aspect of our business more efficient.
  • One of our primary goals in procuring a vendor to provide a better solution was our increased need to become more consistent in our messaging, more relevant as things change, and more efficient in getting our user's the answers they need quicker. We accomplished all three.
