Quosal Announces Silver Sponsorship for HTG IT Solution Provider Peer Groups

Works With Member Companies on Best Practices for Creating Sales Quotes and Proposals, Quote-to-Order, Content Sharing, and Related Processes

WOODINVILLE, WA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Quosal Inc., the Quote and Proposal Automation company today announced a sponsorship with HTG Peer Groups, a peer organization comprising some 260 IT solutions providers who network, collaborate and share insight on best practices, benchmarking, process improvement and member business review for improved business success.

Quosal is the ultimate software tool and platform for the preparation, delivery and management of both simple form-based quotes and complex, multi-section proposals. With Quosal, users can create timely, accurate, high-quality and attractive quotes and proposals with tight CRM integration and up-to-the-minute pricing, availability, promotions, product specs, images and more -- in a fraction of the time it normally takes. Quosal can be deployed as a desktop application or as a data-hosted application.

Using Quosal Order Porter, sales professionals can create personal web pages for customers who can electronically select desired options, confirm their order, and digitally sign-off on the contract. Order Porter can also be used as a collaboration platform for colleagues to make comments/updates to quotes and proposals as they go through the sales process.

Quosal user and HTG member Dave DelVecchio of Innovative Business Systems Inc. of Easthampton, MA, said, "In early 2009, IBS made two key decisions, the first was to join HTG, and the second was to implement Quosal. We have been ecstatic with the results of both decisions, and are excited that HTG and Quosal are now working together."

"Quosal has enjoyed tremendous success within the Information Technology sector HTG members," said Kent McNall, Quosal CEO and founder. "Through our sponsorship, we'll be able to work more closely with HTG members to provide excellent solutions for creating sales quotes and proposals and related processes. We're equally excited about the opportunity to leverage our user content sharing capabilities within the HTG community because these companies have bought into the idea of information sharing for mutual benefit. The Quosal content sharing infrastructure is perfect for this philosophy."

McNall refers to the new suite of features in Quosal aimed at enhancing user ability to share content such as quote forms, web templates, program scripts, configurations, and more with other users, or users within a group. "When an HTG member identifies themselves within the Quosal application as an HTG member willing to share content information, a brave new world will open up for them," said McNall.

HTG members are primarily IT solution providers, working together in groups of 12 member companies to improve the performance of their businesses through information sharing. HTG peer groups act as a virtual "board of directors" for each other, frankly examining business performance metrics and helping each other to formulate and meet business goals.

HTG CEO and founder Arlin Sorensen said, "We are excited to add Quosal as one of our vendor sponsors. Their tools have proven extremely valuable to members already using their platform, and the ability to share templates among our members aligns perfectly with our mission to enable companies to leverage the collective wisdom of their group to drive their business."

Quosal licensing starts at $650 including the first year of support. SaaS seating is $40.00 per seat per month, which includes all support and upgrades.
