"Most of the time you buy a product, and it's helpful-- but this truly changes the way we can do business. Very few things can change the way a business operates. Proposals went from days to 15 minutes." Josh Garza, CEO SmartTech
Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Mimiran (http://www.mimiran.com) today announced the general availability of Mimiran's online sales proposal application, which helps small and mid-sized businesses create and close proposals faster.
Small business owners love to hear "can you send me a proposal?" However, the next step is often painful. Creating the proposal involves painstaking copying and pasting from past documents, updating customer names, pricing information, and proposal terms. Then attaching the proposal to an email, sending it off, and waiting. Calling after a few days to see if the prospect has even read the proposal. Leaving a message. Following up a few days later with an email. Finally, two weeks later, the prospect can finally discuss the proposal, and asks for changes, and the process repeats.
Josh Garza, CEO of SmartTech, New England's largest mobile broadband company, knew there had to be a better way. He tried several online proposal providers, before settling on Mimiran for its depth of functionality and integration with Sugar CRM. Mimiran made an immediate impact on his sales efforts, and on his time. "Most of the time you buy a product, and it's helpful-- but this truly changes the way we can do business. Very few things can change the way a business operates. Proposals went from days to 15 minutes."
Mimiran's online proposal application makes it easy for small business owners and their sales teams to create and close proposals. Users can use the built-in proposal templates, or upload their own. The application automatically quotes pricing information and displays it in the proposal, along with customer and product information, and terms and conditions.
Saving time creating the proposal is just the beginning, however. Moving to Mimiran's online proposals means that users receive a notification when a prospect opens their proposal, so they no longer have to wonder whether prospects have even read the proposal, and users can call at an appropriate time to discuss the solution. In some cases, users can even edit the proposal while on the phone, eliminating the need for another cycle of updates and discussions. The prospect can sign online, on an iPad or other tablet, or download a PDF version for signature.
Mimiran accelerates sales for small and mid-sized businesses by moving the sales proposal process online. Mimiran's technology goes beyond sales proposal templates.
A quoting engine provides accurate pricing, including discounts for volume and contract length, so sellers can implement pricing strategically, instead of using discretionary discounts at the time of sale. A simple configuration engine lets small business owners easily implement cross-sell and up-sell rules, and eliminates incorrect orders. Mimiran can automatically insert detailed product information, including images and diagrams, into a proposal, automating a manual, error-prone process.
Mimiran (http://www.mimiran.com) integrates with salesforce.com, Highrise CRM, and SugarCRM. Pricing is $19 per user per month.
