We understand that finding the right proposal solution can be a headache. We’ve been there ourselves, really. After over a decade working in the creative industry we know that time, simplicity and above all, winning projects are what count.

We hope this brief overview helps you to make an informed decision on which solution is right for you; Nusii or Indesign?

The industry’s workhorse vs. simplicity

There’s no doubt that Indesign is the industry’s go-to tool for creating flexible layouts. It was actually my own proposal tool of choice for years before I got fed up of:

  • The time I needed to invest in recreating templates and content.
  • Losing endless billable hours searching for previously used content.
  • The lack of simplicity.
  • Only having access to my proposals on one computer.
  • Having to create PDF’s and then send via email with zero tracking.

The reason? Indesign wasn’t built to write proposals, it was designed as a layout tool for offline publishers. It also requires a steep learning curve. You need to invest a considerable amount of time to master it’s hundreds of functions.

Nusii was born out of my frustration with Indesign. It was built to write and manage proposals, period. Over the last few years Nusii has been the subject of countless reviews and testimonials praising its simplicity and ease of use. This is where we excel, and where you can save precious time.

“I’d spend hours Indesign creating my proposals. Being a designer, I felt that they needed to be exquisitely designed. But my content rarely fit the templates I created, and they lacked the professional finish I was looking for.

When I started using Nusii, it solved all my problems. I can get a proposal out the door in 20 minutes and they look far better than the templates I was creating with Indesign, it’s almost annoying!

And best of all? Every time I send a proposal, I receive comments on how professional they look and how easy they are to read. Now I focus on the content, knowing the design is already taken care of.”

Nusii will track all your proposal interactions

A stunning proposal isn’t worth the paper it’s written on if it doesn’t get read.

Indesign is standalone software. What does this mean for you? It means you’ll have to create a PDF of your proposal that you’ll later send as an email attachment. If your client accepts, they’ll then need to use another service to sign on the dotted line. Nusii takes care of this for you, and all in one place.

Nusii won’t just send your proposals, it will also let you know when:

  • When your client opens your email and at what time.
  • When your client opens your proposal and at what time.
  • When your client downloads a copy of your proposal as a PDF.
  • When your client requests further information.
  • When your client Accepts (or rejects) your proposal and signs on the the dotted line (straight from their browser).
  • Your overall acceptance rate.
  • Your overall sales revenue.
  • Your sales revenue per client.
