I've never enjoyed doing proposals. Even though I wanted to do the project and win the business, the thought of struggling with Word, Excel, copying & pasting, finding & replacing for a few hours, then sending an email and waiting a week for a response just wasn't that appealing. Then when you finally get to discuss the proposal and need to make changes, the process repeats.
I decided there had to be a better way, so I built an app to automate the boring parts, accelerate the necessary parts, and help me focus on the end results, instead of the proposals. Here's why Mimiran is a better way to create, send, and win proposals: Less time spent creating proposals. Proposal templates. Merge fields. The ability to automatically add rich product descriptions and pricing information. It's here so you don't have to spend as much time on grunt work. You can even copy and paste from your existing proposal templates. Easier for your prospects. They don't have to deal with large attachments-- they just get a link. They can generate a PDF version if they want. Faster to close. You get notified when your prospect looks at your proposal. No more guessing if they've read it. You can even see which sections they read. Now you know when to call them, and you can collaborate and make revisions quickly and easily (I even adjusted a proposal and closed it while I was on the phone with a prospect). They can even sign online. Higher profit.
You can define pricing and discounting rules that automatically generate quote information within your proposal. No guessing about pricing and no panicked discounting. Check it out-- the 30 day free trial means you have a risk-free way to get started. You can send a test proposal in minutes, and you'll be able to create your own proposals with your own products as well.

Some people are naturals at putting together price / configure /quote sheets and business proposals but for most of us its a time consuming and repetitive event that can leave little room for detailing everything you have to offer when bidding for a contract. Some will struggle with Word and Excel and spend half their day copying & pasting or finding & replacing details before sending an email and then waiting a week for a response. When when you finally get a response there will be undoubtably be changes and the whole process is repeated. Mimiran was developed to automate the boring parts, accelerate the necessary parts and help focus on the end result rather than just the proposal. It does this by simplifying the process and means you will spend less time actually creating proposals by using very customizable templates. Here you can automatically add rich product descriptions and pricing information cutting out a lot of the grunt work. Cut and paste from your existing proposal templates with links to related proposals means your proposal is more precise and easy to comprehend. You get notified when your prospect looks at your proposal so you know exactly when to call them, collaborate and make revisions quickly and easily. Define pricing and discounting rules that automatically generate quote information within your proposal so there is no guessing about pricing and no panicked discounting.
