Cloud Pricing™ (Pricing In The Cloud) V GoProposal™

A comparison between Cloud Pricing™ (aka Pricing In The Cloud) & GoProposal™

Cloud Pricing™ (aka Pricing In The Cloud) is cloud based pricing software, brought to you from Mark Wickersham, author of “Effective Pricing for Accountants”. It is centred very heavily around value pricing and pricing psychology, using three tier pricing for each service.

We have a lot of GoProposal™ users evolve from using Cloud Pricing™ (aka Pricing In The Cloud) and so we wanted to provide you with this comparison* of the two systems.

We have focussed our comparison on what we’ve been told are the most important aspects of the sales system for accountants. So how well does the system….

  • Allow you to agree fees with your prospects whilst you’re sat with them.
  • Enable you to sell all of the services which your prospects and clients need, so you can provide them with the most value you can.
  • Ensure that you are able to charge for all aspects of the services you provide using complex pricing if required.
  • Produce the proposal.
  • Produce the Letter of Engagement.
  • Allow digital sign-off.
  • Ultimately convert prospects over to your firm.
  • Save your valuable time.
  • Integrate with other key systems.
  • Allow you to carry our regular fee reviews as your client’s circumstances change.

NO

Cloud Pricing™ (Pricing in The Cloud) is a stand alone system and does not integrate with any other systems.

NOT STATED

It is our understanding that Cloud Pricing™ (Pricing in The Cloud) doesn't come pre-filled with any content and so you have to construct each line item from scratch.


NOT STATED

It is our understanding that Cloud Pricing™ (Pricing in The Cloud) takes longer to agree fees because with each line item you have 3 options to choose from. It then doesn't produce the proposal or LoE so you would need to factor in that additioanl time with whatever additional system/s you use.


VIDEO SUPPORT

“I’m a huge Xero fan and have built our firm around their core product. We used to use an Excel spreadsheet to calculate the price with our clients, and then use Practice Ignition to generate a simple proposal and the Letter of Engagement. Whilst it’s a good product, it didn’t fit in with the process we wanted to achieve, which was the ability for all of my team to be able to sign clients up instantly during the meeting. Also, because we really wanted to wow our clients, we wanted the proposal to look amazing and to be able to convert them. After extensive research, GoProposal was the only product that we could achieve that.”
