Alternative to Qvidian

If you want your proposal to look like it was made in Microsoft Word, Qvidian won't disappoint you. However, if you want software that will make your proposals stand out from the crowd, you might want to look elsewhere. So, without further ado, let's dive into some key differences between Qvidian and Better Proposals.

Proposals

As we've already mentioned, Qvidian offers only Word templates. While their drag and drop interface allows you to add elements easily, the design is limited. Think of it as a standard Word document. With Qvidian, you can add images and format the text in your proposal the same way you would if you were doing it in Microsoft Word. That said, their auto-fill feature will make the creation process faster than inputting all the data manually.

On the other hand, if you're looking for modern and visually appealing proposal templates, Better Proposals has over 200 pre-made ones. They're easily customizable, come with a library of stock photos you can use and are pre-written for maximum convenience. What's more, you can also add a digital signature field to get rid of the hassle of looking through emails. And if you want to take it a step further, you can choose to integrate live chat software. That way, your client can give you feedback while reading the proposal, which lets you make the required changes right away.

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.

Payment integrations

When it comes to payment integrations, the situation with Qvidian is quite simple - it doesn't have any. For you, that means having to send proposals and invoices separately, which ultimately leaves you with more work. So, if you want to automate your invoicing process, Better Proposals is a better choice for you.

With Better Proposals, you get the option to collect payment through PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless. You can use all of these integrations on all available plans to speed up the process of billing and getting paid.

Pricing

Better Proposals has a simple and transparent pricing system starting at $19/month. You can choose between three plans based on the features you need and scale up as necessary. The best part? You can sign up for a free trial first without having to provide any credit card details. Once you're ready to commit, simply start your subscription with a click of the mouse.

With Qvidian, it's not that simple. To get an idea of what you'll end up paying, you have to request a custom quote. And if you want to see how it works before you buy it, you'll also have to sign up for a demo.

Conclusion

When choosing between Qvidian and Better Proposals, keep in mind that Qvidian's been around for more than 20 years.
