Quosal, Inc. Releases First All-in-One Software Platform for Quotes and Proposals

Integration With Salesforce.com and ACT! and SalesLogix by Sage Software, Strategic Product Bundles Provide Comprehensive QP Preparation and Management

WOODINVILLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Quosal, the first all-in-one software platform that automates the preparation and management of quotes and proposals (QP), is now available for purchase and download at www.quosal.com. Quosal, Inc., the Quote and Proposal company, also announced key alliances with CRM leaders such as Salesforce.com and Sage Software and new product bundles as a result of teaming up with partners such as Etilize (www.etilize.com) and Proposal Kit (www.proposalkit.com).

Quosal is the first software package specifically designed to meet the needs of sales professionals and organizations that produce both quotes and proposals -- from the shortest quote to the most sophisticated proposal. With Quosal, users can create timely, accurate, high-quality and attractive quotes and proposals with up-to-the-minute pricing and availability, promotions, product specs, images and more -- in a fraction of the time it normally takes. It can be deployed as a desktop application or as a hosted Web application.

Quosal Highlights

Quosal makes it extremely easy and intuitive for sales persons to build quotes and proposals:

--  Professional, high-quality results
--  Real-time access to product content and pricing
--  Engaging user interface
--  Deep integration with Microsoft Word and popular CRM systems
--  Direct product integration through Quosal's Product Buffet
--  Flexible, powerful pricing capabilities
--  Easy to use, complete multicurrency conversion
    

Alliances Propel Quosal and empower users

While Quosal can be used as a completely stand-alone application, the real power of the platform comes through integration. CRM integration with partners and products such as salesforce.com, ACT! and SalesLogix by Sage Software, and specialty CRM systems such as Connectwise-PSA provide complete customer information for quotes and proposals. Product pricing and availability is provided through Product Buffet, the "no data import" tool within Quosal, as well as real-time pricing and availability lookup through major distributors. Extended product content -- specifications, images, standardized categories and more -- is provided through online content providers such as Etilize. Lastly, Quosal helps the user produce the final quote or proposal in the right form and format -- as a pre-formatted quote or an integrated, sophisticated Word-based proposal.

Product Bundles with Etilize and Proposal Kit

Quosal now offers Etilize for Quosal which provides instant access to Etilize's extensive online catalog with information on millions of standardized products for information technology, consumer electronics and other lines of business. Etilize for Quosal checks the Etilize online system for extended content and if the information is available, Quosal automatically updates the quote with better descriptions, extended specifications, product pictures, and much more. Etilize for Quosal features a unified key word search and a standardized category system, dramatically improving the ability to find products for quotes and proposals.

Quosal has also teamed up with Proposal Kit to offer the most complete, end-to-end proposal creation and management software on the market. Proposal Kit provides a vast library of hundreds of attractive, dynamic proposal formats and content for all types of businesses. Users can dynamically choose between proposal document sections to create one or many templates which can be used over and over by Quosal.
