Leap Networks Created a Custom Quoting Application without any Coding
Leap Networks had been using an Excel workbook for generating quotes for their clients. It would take them hours to generate multiple quotes their clients ask for. Furthermore, they needed a way to send PDF quotes to their clients.
"I know we saved at least $13,000 on just the creation of the app compared to the lowest bids we got. Compared to some of the other medium-sized software companies, the savings are well over $20,000”.
To transform their quote generation process, Leap Networks considered several options, including hiring developers to custom code this application. The calculation logic for quote generation was already in Excel, and they needed a solution that was not going to have them work on the project full-time or cost a small fortune.
“If it wasn’t for SpreadsheetWeb, I don’t think this project would have been approved. We couldn’t justify the large price tag of a custom app, and the existing spreadsheet wouldn’t work with our new proposal models.”
Leap Networks was able to go live in the span of a few weeks. The result is a solution that costed them far less than building a custom application.
“The first major test for the app was at a large national convention we were exhibiting in. A differentiator for drawing buyers to our booth was based on what this app enables us to do: Create an entire proposal and quote in less than a minute. No one else in the industry can do that.”
