First, we let you sync your QuickBooks Online contacts with Quote Roller, now we’ve kicked it up a few notches with a deeper integration, allowing you invoice using QuickBooks Online (QBO) from a Quote Roller proposal.
In this blog post, we’re going to teach you to close out your deals by doing what you do best, get paid!
“A man who buys a drill doesn’t want a drill. He wants a hole.”
This saying, which is attributed to Theodore Levitt – an American economist and professor at Harvard Business School, is one that you frequently hear during sales seminars and trainings. The principal behind this idea is that people do not want the product or service we can sell them – they want the outcome of that service.
Building a business is all about customer relationship management (CRM). That’s precisely what led me to trying out an app from one of Quote Roller’s integration partners, Zoho CRM. Although I use the services of several products from our integration partners myself (Google Drive, Box, and PayPal), I wanted to share my experience using one of my favorites: Zoho CRM.
You see, even before I started blogging for Quote Roller, I was using Zoho Mail for my professional emails (and Gmail for personal), and dabbling with some of the company’s other app offerings now and then.
I have long been especially keen on using Zoho Invoice for billing. I freelance for several websites on a regular basis and take on one-off and guest assignments all the time, so I was pleased to find that I can easily integrate Quote Roller with Zoho CRM to streamline those two processes, allowing you to access customers in the CRM inside Quote Roller to send any one of them a business proposal.
I have a growing customer list, which is too hard to manage without CRM. Since I use Quote Roller to submit proposals and close business, it has become quite clear that I have to use a CRM tool to keep it all straight, and Zoho CRM has proven to be the right tool for the task.
So, based on my experience, here’s what it is like to use Quote Roller, Zoho CRM, and Zoho Invoice.
And we’ll start with how all you Quote Rollers can get started with using Zoho CRM right away.

Several weeks ago our team was selected as a finalist among 300 applicants to compete for the Best Startup of the Year 2012 award in Moscow, Russia.
Finalists were selected through a panel of judges, which included more than 80 representatives of investment funds, entrepreneurs, experts and consultants. As a result, Quote Roller with 13 other teams from Russia, Belarus and the United States were selected as finalists.
The event was a blast! Attended by 1,000 people, and 2,000 people watched the online broadcast live. Although we didn’t win in our nomination for the Best Global Startup, our golden apple is very special, as we got the People’s Choice Award!
Some crazy pictures after the cut! Congrats to Quote Roller and thanks to all our customers! We love you <3! Read more

You may have already spotted a few interesting blog posts by Sasha and noticed that our facebook page has come to life.

We always add features to Quote Roller to help our users be even more efficient. Some of you might have already noticed that blue Content Library button has appeared while creating or editing proposals and templates.
Content Library works as a repository of content blocks you use most often in your proposals. Be it text, images, HTML, video or a combination of all the elements, you can now conveniently save any block into your Content Library and with a single click add it into other proposals.
Let me show you how it works:
PDFs are a pain. A pain for you and your customers. A pain to sign, edit, track, collaborate on, keep versions aligned and hard to add any interactivity.
Some of you have already realized great value non-PDFs proposals bring not only to you as a service provider, but most important of all to your customers.
Let’s sum everything up and see why PDFs-are-best-proposals myth doesn’t stand a chance anymore. Read more
