Quote Image What Our Clients Say

I originally bought Proposal Pack Wizard to automatically assembly documents in my proposals. With 100s of sample proposals (technical and non-technical), the "Novice" or "Expert" features, and the ability to migrate old Wizard installations to the new version, it’s a no-brainer. Oh did I mention their stellar support and the fact that each Proposal Kit is licensed for [five] people? If you are thinking about purchasing Proposal Kit, I suggest you take a strong look at Proposal Pack Wizard also."
