Quosal's growth and R&D efforts have accelerated since ConnectWise Capital invested in the company earlier this year. The new Quosal 2012 release features:
- Visual Quoting, which allows images to be imported into Quosal. The result: Customer quotes and proposals can be prepared by clicking on designated areas within the image. The capability extends to Quosal 2012 for the Apple iPad.
- Integration with Avalara’s AvaTax web-based sales tax solutions. Quosal uses the integration for real-time sales tax jurisdiction assignment and tax calculation. AvaTax works with Quosal’s online quote delivery system, Order Porter. (Side note: The AvaTax integration is a premium service and requires an AvaTax subscription, Quosal says.)
- Expanded integrations to ConnectWise, Microsoft CRM and Dynamics, Autotask and Salesforce.com.
- Extensions of Quosal’s Etilize catalog integration for UK-based partners and customers.
Elsewhere in the PSA and sales quoting market, CommitCRM recently announced an integration to Quotewerks.
