The Proposal App

After three amazing years of five star reviews & winning “Best Sales App of 2013” from the Tabby Awards, we successfully sold The Proposal to Matrix Information Systems. We had a great time taking an idea and bring it to life for small businesses everywhere. We still feel thrilled on how well our little idea took off on the Apple App Store. We have switched gears from full time application creators to focus on our interactive audio video systems. We know Matrix Information Systems will do a great job supporting our beloved users.

Details

We have had success stories ranging from landscaping companies to car dealerships, but one thing each company has in common is their need to make the most of every minute on the job. We understand that need and that is why we are proud to provide companies with a powerful app that is simple to use. The Proposal is designed for you and your on-the-go company.

The Proposal is an intuitive, attractive graphical user interface that includes the tools sales professionals require to generate sales estimates and proposals onsite and on demand. It takes responsiveness to a new level while ensuring that typos and mathematical errors, that can cost a business their margins, are a thing of the past.
