Nice but pricey and not as feature-rich

2017-09-19

I only tried this for about a month but it was nice to be able to fill in a form easily instead of manually updating a proposal on my computer and then uploading it to a third-party digital signature service.

Pros

Online signatures // Looks professional and clean // easy for clients to view and sign proposals // Freshbooks integration // Basecamp integration // Ability to change logo and colors to match your branding // Able to see if/when clients viewed proposals

Cons

Cannot change proposal layout (only logo and colors) // Way too pricey for a small business

Make Great proposals!

2018-12-17

Pros

The design is very clean and the user interface is very intuitive, it is really built to make your business life easier and faster if you don't​ have much time to create rich proposals.

Cons

It is a bit expensive especially​ if you are not a very big business, but it is worth to try at least the free trial.

An easy to use and cost effective proposal software program

2018-07-26

Pros

Great looking templates that are simple to edit, reasonable price for the value it brings, clean user interface, saves lots of time

Cons

Nothing significant except the price could be lower, and there could be more native integrations. It would be nice if perhaps the proposals were more customizable with a greater range of color, fonts, etc.

Professional, Effective, and Reliable.

2018-01-03

Pros

It is a reliable tool with friendly UI and UX.

Cons

To be honest, every time I face a challenge with Bidsketch and realize that it is limited, I just ask the support team and I get my answer. There are no obvious down side to Bidsketch as far as my requirements goes.

Saves so much time

2016-04-20

Here at ARS Digital Marketing, we use Bidsketch to quickly and easily design custom proposals for our clients.

Pros

Saves alot of time. One-stop place to organize client proposals.

Cons

Nothing really so far. If I had one comment it would be to increase the 25-client limit on the starter plan.

Smart & Efficient

2017-10-13

Pros

The templates are detailed, well considered and easy to customise – allowing for quick and efficient use regardless of the size client I need it for, and they can be designed to fully capitalise on any key areas I need to address.

Cons

I'd like to be able to further customise the templates with additional imagery as some clients prefer more visuals than others, but this is a minor want and in no way diminishes the current capability.

BidSketch Review

2018-01-25

Pros

Ability to integrate with freshbooks 4.

Cons

There has been no issues that prevent me from doing my job. The only thing I'd recommend is a way to suspend a proposal and retrieve it later instead of having to delete it all together for it to be private.

Proposals made easy

2019-04-01

It's a reliable platform that's easy to use for those making proposals and those approving them (clients).

Pros

It's easy to organize your services into modules and sections which reduces time to create a proposal.

Cons

Pre-written proposal sections were added and can't be removed. It is nice to have a default library of content, but we already have a plethora of content and would like to remove the default content. Currently, we can't.

Simply Excellent

2019-11-09

It's been a pleasure to work with Bidsketch so far. Sending and getting proposals signed has been a smooth sail from the moment I started using it. My customers have not had any issues signing or filling out the proposals either. It's a win win.

Pros

Bidsketch is dead easy to use.

Cons

I haven't found any issues that have been show stoppers. Everything has worked for me with no issues.
