The problem with most contractors is they take too long to generate quotes.
A prospective client will generally give the job to the ONLY company which gives them the requested quote.
Generally, the company who issues the quote first is the one which gets the job.
Quotes are converted immediately into invoices - no additional typing required.
Also, you have the choice of Proforma invoices and Commercial invoices
Invoices are presented to clients as below.
These are sent out immediately by Fax, printed version or by .pdf (i.e. full colour on email)
