Alternative to Adobe Sign

If you want to keep sending PDF files, Adobe Sign might be the one for you. But if you need an all-in-one platform that lets you streamline your entire sales process, it may be time to switch to Better Proposals. Let's take a look at some key differences between Adobe Sign and Better Proposals.

Proposals

While Adobe Sign lets you use templates, there's a catch: you'll have to create them from scratch first. What's more, they only support old-school file types, making your customization options limited.

With Better Proposals, you get access to more than 200 proposal templates that you can easily customize. And we're not only talking design here - all of our templates come pre-written as well. And if you're as big on customization as we are, you can also use your custom domain to send your proposals from. That way, you get proposal analytics which let you know when your proposal was received, opened, read, printed, forwarded and signed. All our documents are web-based, which means they'll look great on whatever device they're opened on.

Pricing

When it comes to plans, Better Proposals has a simpler structure. Three plans starting at $19/month/user with the option of scaling up and adding an unlimited number of users. And if you want to try Better Proposals for free, there's a 14-day free trial. As opposed to Adobe Sign's, our free trial is available for anyone, no matter where you're from.

Besides limiting their free trial to certain regions, Adobe Sign also has a more complex subscription model. There are two user categories, each one with its own separate plans. If that wasn't complex enough, each of the plans is priced differently based on the commitment level. So, let's break this down.

The lowest plan in the Individual category starts at $22.99/month if you want to stay on a monthly subscription. It works only on Windows, it's for one user, and your eSignatures might not be compliant.

In the Teams category, the lowest plan is $14.99/month/user, but it requires annual commitment. It also only works on Windows, there's no customized branding, and you can't collect payments. To get those features, you'll need to get the highest team plan. And to get an idea of what it will cost you, you'll also have to contact them for a quote.

Payment integrations

As we already mentioned, Adobe Sign doesn't let you collect payments on all plans.
Better Proposals, on the other hand, does. Our one-click PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless integrations make it easy to get paid from almost anywhere around the world.

Customer support

As opposed to Adobe Sign, we don't think customer support should be one of the features. If you ever get stuck with Better Proposals, our support team is just a click away. Get you questions answered in real time by a real person - just the way it should be.
