Web Proposals: A New Paradigm for Solar & Energy Storage Proposal Management

Effective communication and seamless presentation of ideas are pivotal to success in the ever-evolving landscape of solar + storage design and development. In a competitive business environment, delivering impactful proposals and engaging clients effectively can make all the difference. Recognizing the need for a more sophisticated approach to proposal management, we are pleased to introduce transformative new features that will make this possible: Web Proposals and Designs. 

Introducing Web Proposals

Web Proposals are designed to empower ETB Developer users with a refined toolset for creating comprehensive proposals and elevating the management of those proposals. Moving beyond the limitations of traditional, static proposals, Web Proposals enable users to compile a collection of multiple designs within a single proposal, providing your clients with a comprehensive overview of the possibilities and an innovative way to present proposals and interact with clients.  

Effortless Sharing, Insightful Tracking, and Custom Branding 

One of the standout features of Web Proposals is the ability to share proposals through a unique link effortlessly. This streamlined sharing process eliminates the need for cumbersome attachments and ensures a more efficient and professional client experience. Here’s an example of apublished web catalog that you can share with your customer!

What truly sets Web Proposals apart is its robust analytics functionality. Users can access real-time insights into the performance of their shared Web Proposal. This includes data on when the catalog was accessed, the duration of each viewing session, and a breakdown of which designs garnered the most attention. Such granular insights give users a valuable edge in tailoring their follow-ups and refining their design strategies. 

Consistency in branding is a hallmark of professionalism. With Web Proposals, users can seamlessly integrate their brand colors and logos into their Web Proposal. This enables a cohesive brand experience throughout the client interaction, reinforcing brand identity and leaving a lasting impression.
