Welcome to event planning in the 21st century!
Caterease Software, always on the forefront of technology in the catering and event management software industry, announced this week its brand new interface with Paperless Proposal – a cloud – based proposal application. Using this powerful interface, Caterease users are able to seamlessly send any custom Caterease prints directly to Paperless Proposal for use in an online presentation to the customer.
“This one has a really high ‘cool factor’”, says Chris Kopriva, Caterease Director of Sales. “Just imagine sending your customer a ‘living, breathing’ proposal to really demonstrate their upcoming event – including sound, animation, video and all of the flash of web presentations. There is no better way to truly bring your proposals to life.”
In addition to adding excitement to proposals, Paperless Proposals also allows Caterease users to track what parts of their online proposals clients have viewed, how long they viewed them and whether or not they forwarded the material.
“Paperless Proposal allows your sales team the ability to create, send, manage, track and deliver all your proposals, quotes, marketing material and print online anywhere,” says Glen Cohen, paperless Proposal Vice President. “You can even let your prospects instantly approve a bid online with e-signature. Integrated with Caterease, Paperless Proposal really lets you separate yourself from the competition.”
Once proposals have been prepared, Caterease users can continue to manage their Paperless Proposal documents directly from their Caterease program. While reviewing an event in the Caterease Event Manager, users can click a button to see all proposals they submitted to Paperless Proposals and which specific Caterease documents they included. They can even jump directly to that proposal in Paperless Proposal and track information in more detail.
“This interface really takes event planning and management to a whole new level,” Kopriva says. “It’s a ‘Brave New World’, and caterers and event planners need to do what they can to make themselves stand out from their competitors. The Caterease-Paperless Proposals interface is a perfect way to do that!”
