Since 2009 I have been using Proposal Pack for Any Business. The words ’please send us a proposal’ no longer trigger a sense of dread at having to stare at a blank page and create something professional and persuasive. The samples alone are amazing! This is a wonderful tool for anyone needing to write cogent and cohesive proposals."
