Alternative to Plutio

When it comes to choosing between Plutio and Better Proposals, the choice will ultimately come down to the features. While Plutio is one of Forbes' top ten tools for freelancers, it might not be the best option for larger teams. So, if you're looking for proposal software that can support your growing business, Better Proposals might be the better choice. Let's take a look at some key differences between the two and see why.

Proposals

Better Proposals gives you access to more than 200 proposal templates that you can easily customize. Note that we're not only talking design here - all of our proposal templates also come pre-written. And if you're as big on customization as we are, you can also create a custom domain to send your proposals from. That way, your clients will instantly know that the proposal is coming directly from you. In addition to that, you are in complete control with proposal analytics which will let you know when your proposal was received, opened, read, printed, forwarded and signed.

With Plutio, you're not getting a clear picture of how many proposal templates are at your disposal. In addition to that, the templates they do offer contain only placeholder text. While this may seem like a minor problem at first, it will make your proposal creation process more time-consuming.

Pricing

While both of our lowest plans start at $19/month, businesses that need more than one user will get more value for their money with Better Proposals. In addition to that, you'll have a harder time estimating what you'll end up paying with Plutio. For example, if you need a large number of users, with Better Proposals you know the plan you're looking for starts at $49/user with a two-user minimum.

On the other hand, if you want to use Plutio, you'll need to ask for a custom quote. While this doesn't necessarily need to be a negative thing, it does mean you'll need to spend more time getting what you need.

Integrations

If you were hoping to connect all your favorite tools to your proposal software, Better Proposals might be the way to go. With our 40+ integrations, it's almost impossible not to find what you're looking for. Plutio, on the other hand, offers only eight integrations.

While we both offer PayPal and Stripe integrations, Better Proposals also integrates with GoCardless. Since GoCardless is a direct debit provider, you don't have to wait for your clients to send you money. Instead, the payment is collected directly from their bank account. That way, you can spend less time chasing payments and more time doing what you're good at.
