Quote Roller is turning 1 year old! Over 100.000 proposals have been sent. Over half a billion US dollars of business have been proposed and almost $100mln accepted.
Now we have a decent amount of people using the app. Many of our customers thank us for getting their acceptance rate grow 20%. Others are tremendously happy for all those hours saved creating, sending and processing sales proposals. Based on the feedback we save at least 45 minutes on one sales proposal comparing to traditional work in word processors.
We help to sell more, faster. And we are really happy for it.
Here are the results of our work over the last year:
To iterate faster and achieve a better pace we need to change our pricing model. We’ve been trying existing plans and pricing for a year and now it is clear that we have to change it in order to be able to grow the business. Basically it boils down to this… We need to support our current development team and continue to add support staff to assist new and existing users. As you grow, we grow and so we grow together!
We love our customers, we love what we do and want to continue doing it at even better pace.
We want Quote Roller to have a fair price for your business. This is why we would like to get your feedback on the new pricing model, and see which direction we should head.
Future pricing model will differentiate plans based on the features and team members. “Professional” plan will target freelancers (only one user per account) and have all the features of current “Basic” plan plus custom domains. Proposal limits on all the plans will be lifted up.
When will it take place?
We plan to introduce the new pricing on October 1st (one year since we started to charge for Quote Roller).
Many of you are anticipating the changeover, but we promise to make it as seamless as possible.
Our existing professional and enterprise users can stay on current pro and enterprise plans as long as they want. That means no price change for all existing users who are on Professional or Enterprise plan at all.
And, if you were thinking to upgrade, the best time to do it is by October 1st. That way you’ll pay less for what will be more expensive
Basic users will be eligible for a 50% discount prorated for 12 months, which will help to align new and old prices.
With described above price change we can promise significant product evolution over the next year. There is a number of features scheduled to release.
In addition to features mentioned in plans we also have following features scheduled in the pipeline:
- Mobile version of the application. We are talking about not just an iPhone app. We want to get full version of Quote Roller to work on any mobile device;
- Integration with more third party applications;
- Online payments.
We want Quote Roller to provide as much value to your business as possible. Operating for a year we were able to calculate some metrics, which helped to guess the value. We plan to double it over the next year.
- Average Quote Roller user creates around 16 proposals a month. This is at least 12 hours saved monthly, which saves around $650 (an average B2B salesman costs around $54/hr nowadays);
- Clients of our clients love Quote Roller. Quote Roller makes it easy for buyers to handle, discuss and accept sales proposals you send. This is priceless.
Now, this post is an open conversation. We want to hear your voice. We trust you and want to help your business with great software.
