Quosal Sees Demand for Its Sales Quote and Proposal Platform Explode in Q4 2009

400% Increase in Bookings Versus Same Period 2008

WOODINVILLE, WA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - Quosal Inc. today reported a 400% increase in Q4 bookings for its Quote and Proposal platform compared to the same period in 2008. Quosal, which can be deployed as an installed or on-demand application, is the ultimate software tool for the preparation, delivery and management of both simple form-based quotes and complex, multi-section proposals.

"One of the primary purposes behind the art and science of CRM is doing business with the customer -- making the sale," said Kent McNall, CEO of Quosal Inc. "The primary vehicle for making sales for most businesses that employ CRM is the quote and proposal. Quote and Proposal Automation is one of the most important business processes an organization has, yet it is one of the most underserved in businesses of all sizes, and virtually unsupported by most popular CRM platforms. Quosal is gaining traction and market buzz because it's a great solution that fills this gap."

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.

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.

Continued McNall, "Quosal uniquely handles not only straightforward quotes, but proposals as well. Proposals can be complex, sophisticated documents, providing not only pricing and description information on products and services, but more extensive narrative, legalese, options, product documentation, and more. But creating and tracking them has largely remained a manual process, even with the introduction of word processors and spreadsheets. Quosal streamlines the process from inception to resolution and provides a huge competitive advantage at the outset of the company-customer relationship."

In addition to its strong Q4 2009, Quosal added significant product enhancements:

--  Quosal Version 1.6 released
--  Order Porter can now accept credit card payments
--  Full Configurator and product Packages capability added
--  Major QuickBooks enhancements including Purchase Order integration and
    Job Number support, and QuickBooks 2010 fully supported
--  Full support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
--  Full support for Autotask On-Demand PSA
--  Significant enhancements to ConnectWise Integration support, including
    version 8.1 support
--  Full support for Sage ACT! Version 10
--  Major performance enhancements, 25% performance boost across-the-board
--  Full support for Microsoft SQL-Azure including roll out of beta customers
--  QuickBooks support for Jobs and Purchase Orders
    

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