It is all about the sign-off and absolute clarity. Pascal Workflow makes it easier and faster for your client to not only know exactly what you are offering but will be impressed, and say yes faster. Legally binding E-Signatures on your Proposals mean that you will have confidence in your offering and will be able to set priorities resulting in higher fees and less wasted time. Clients know exactly where to sign your Proposals with an experience similar to expensive third party applications.
At your option you can require payment arrangements directly inside the proposal. Rest easy knowing you will be paid promptly for your work faster and with less effort on your part. When payment arrangements are "required" clients simply enter the method of payment details and our systems handle the rest. Payments can be processed as any combination of At Acceptance, On Completion, or part of recurring series.
Sometimes its unknown how much time and expertise will be involved in a client project. Deliver proposals with an estimate of the total cost of the project or give your clients an estimate of the total hours along with a custom hourly rate. Want to get a retainer before you start? No issue. You can require a down payment at Acceptance so that you know your clients is serious about you taking on this Engagement.
Our competitors require that every proposal has a specific and set end date for each and every engagement. This means that each year you have to "roll over" each proposal and present it yet again to your client. We feel this is not appropriate for ALL engagements. Clients are presented again with determining if your service is of value to them just after you got their bookkeeping organized and easy to handle. At your option, you can have a proposal set up so that it lives month to month with no end date and no requirement for the client to sign off each year. Recurring projects and recurring billing happen until you or your clients request new arrangements.
Paper based Engagement Letters are not built for collaboration or project management. In Pascal Workflow Proposals can be used to automatically trigger project assignment to team members. If enabled, once a Proposal is accepted by your client the appropriate team member is notified that he or she has a new project assignment. The team member can clearly see the summary of the client work inside the project so that everything discussed in the Proposal is addressed quickly and efficiently. Requests for client information can also be automated so that all work flows faster and nothing falls through the cracks.
