Alternative to HubSpot Quotes

While HubSpot is a leading marketing platform, their proposal and quoting system doesn’t let you do much in terms of customization. So if you’re in the market for proposal software, take a look at the main differences between HubSpot Quotes and Better Proposals.

Proposals

With Better Proposals, you get access to more than 200 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. Know the status of your proposal at all times, proposal analytics 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.

On the other hand, document personalization options in HubSpot Quotes are still in Beta. For a long time, you could only customize templates if you had paid access to other HubSpot tools, so this is a step forward. However, their no-code editor is still in testing, meaning you’re bound to run into some walls.

No design skills required

Process, share, and store your proposals quicker, easier, and more securely than ever.
And the best part is, you won't need a team to make it perfect.

Pricing

The pricing difference between HubSpot Quotes and Better Proposals is huge. And while HubSpot Quotes does come with a free plan, it doesn’t let you collect signatures. As a matter of fact, you’ll need to take their second paid plan for the digital signature feature, meaning you’ll end up paying $500/month. And if you need more than five users, you’ll either need to pay an additional $100 per user or upgrade to their highest plan at $1200/month. The highest plan includes ten users, so if you have a larger team, you’ll end up paying another $120/month for each user above ten. And if you thought that was it, there’s another catch: all their paid plans require an annual commitment.

If the HubSpot Quotes pricing made your head spin, you’re not alone. Luckily, Better Proposals is a more affordable option for both small and larger teams. If you’re running a small business, our Premium plan starting at $29/month per user has everything you need. To put this in perspective, that’s $355 less than HubSpot Quotes for five users. Even our highest plan at $49/user will be more affordable for larger companies. And yes, we offer the digital signature feature on all our plans.

Integrations

When it comes to integrations, Better Proposals has something for everyone. From CRM and project management to payments, there are more than 40 to choose from. In addition to that, you have the option to add live chat directly to your documents. That way, your clients can provide instant feedback, which lets you make changes on the go.

Hi John, I was wondering if it were possible for us to pay over 8 months instead of 12?

Hey Sarah, Sure, I'll adjust the proposal right away. Anything else I can help you with?

On the other hand, if you don't need many different types of integrations, HubSpot Quotes might be the choice for you. While you can integrate live chat and other HubSpot products, that’s about all there is for now.

Payment integrations

Better Proposals integrates with PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless, which lets you get paid from almost anywhere in the world. HubSpot Quotes, on the other hand, only integrates with Stripe.
