Pros: Customer support! Whenever we've had a question, customer support from Socket has provided us with clear, useful, quick and accurate responses. The Socket staff has been very accommodating to our needs along the way. We feel we can depend on them and they are easy to get in contact with. We also like that the product integrates with our Infusionsoft CRM software.

Cons: It's a little bit clunky as far as doing specialized formatting. It was a challenge to add our tightly formatted standard terms & conditions page to the end of the quote; but again, with Socket's help, we were successful in accomplishing it. They also assisted with formatting a specialized cover page using our logo.

Overall: Ability to easily make fast, accurate quotes for our prospects and customers.

We love Socket - Works Great With Infusionsoft

Pros: We use Socket for our quotes and absolutely love the integration with Infusionsoft. There is a contact lookup feature so when you search for someone's name the Infusionsoft record comes up, and you can apply Infusionsoft tags when the quote is sent and when a customer accepts the quote.

The quotes themselves look good and have all the functionality we need to present a professional document to our customers.

The Socket technical support is top notch.

Cons: Up until now, the reporting hasn't been as detailed as we would have liked, however, Socket is due to release a new reporting dashboard so we are looking forward to seeing what it will be like.

Overall: Fast and easy to use quoting software that allows up to produce professional looking quotes that we then integrate into a PDF document.
We love the acceptance procedure, Paypal integration is great, as is the link to Infusionsoft.

the support is amazing, absolutely helpful and fast although we are in different time zones

Pros: My clients get a quote immediately, I have all the contact details and it is connected to my Convertkit, so I am in contact with my potential clients, easy to set up, easy to embed on my website, follow up notes in the system, so we can call them a couple of times and know what we discussed the last time,

Cons: I sometimes need to search for things, when I want to change things, I would like to have a possibility to email all the customers, who did not pay to send an email at once.

Best customer service on the market.

Pros: flexibility and integration with Zoho.
took me almost no time to generate quotes right away with no training.

Cons: It's expensive for a one person company, pricing model is based upon number of quotes generated rather than a per user all in price.

Overall: Looked at over 10 quote tools online and all of them did not provide enough flexibility. We did not want to change the way we did business to meet many of the online quote tools. SocketApp has a solid foundation for quoting just about anything. We use Zoho as our CRM and the integration was key to our decision to use Socket App. SocketApp has excellent support, whenever I call I always get through to someone which is paramount for a small business.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do your research, make sure you try SocketApp out, use it right off the shelf don't hold back on asking questions and support.

There are so many capabilities to this software so the possibilities for tailoring my quotes/invoices are limitless! I'm very happy that I chose socket and am able to use such an amazing product and recieve such incredible tech and customer support.

Overall: We have been using it for the last 4 years and have loved every minute of it. They provide amazing service and support, and best of all our customers and dealers love it. Because it is so user friendly, we continue to find new products and services to add to our portfolio. Keep up the good work!

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a great product. Easy to get up and running and flexible enough to customize it as much as you need.

Comments: I have nothing but positive things to say about Socket. Anytime I have an issue or question, Matt is on it right away with a fantastic response time. The entire product is constantly getting new updates to make it better than the great product it already is. Socket is constantly improving itself for the better and employees are dedicated to delivering satisfactory products. Great software, service, and overall experience. I would recommend Socket to anybody looking for a reliable and professional quote software!

Ridiculously Perfect.

Pros: Perfect quotes time and again, zero errors. Easy to set up and use. Powerful integrations. Exemplary support.

Cons: None, however we look forward to possibly an App for mobile devices in the future.

Overall: We have used Socket for over 4 years now. Thousands of perfect, effortless quotes later, we have no choice but to rate this 5/5. If we could rate it higher, we would.
The software is cleverly designed, intuitive, extremely stable and keeps churning out quote after perfect quote, with almost no effort, once the easy initial set up is complete. And when I say perfect quote, that is what it is. Perfect formatting. Never an error on pricing, options, taxes, integrations.
Rock solid software. Rock solid extensive integration capabilities. Be it Quickbooks, Freshbooks, Mailchimp, Paypal, Zoho, Salesforce, and so many more, it is "set and forget".
The team delivers extensive support if it is ever needed, they indeed go above and beyond the scope of their roles. They have improvements on the software regularly, and you can see the effort that goes into the communication and quality of work. Such elegant quotes.
Best of all, it just works. It delivers and it does so silently, and consistently. We recently began accepting payments in USD and we could switch the system to multi currency within a few minutes. Changes to quotes and extending expiry dates take a few seconds. Quotes are sent instantly, and if needed have your clients create their own quotes online. Payment is a few clicks, right on the quote. The list of features goes on and on. Features that we actually use, every day.
If you ever need a quotation system that does a lot more than perfect effortless quotes, is affordable and eliminates any errors that your sales team might make, get Socket. We took a chance 4 years ago, and never regretted it one bit since. I would recommend Socket to anyone.

And I thought my last quoting package was good...

Pros: Ability to support recurring and non-recurring products. Fantastic integration features.

Cons: Not being able to change the template used when modifying a quote.

Overall: I have worked with numerous quoting platforms over the years. Each quoting package had a few features that I really liked but never have I experienced a product as well rounded as Socket. The functionality and impeccable support have confirmed this to be the best decision we could have made.

Our clients enjoy a clear and easy to understand quotation, the speed at which we are able to respond to quotation requests, and streamline electronic delivery and acceptance. Not only has Socket removed the burden of creating a great quotation, they have simplified the process following order acceptance with payment gateway and CRM integration.

Gone are the days of double data entry. Thank you Socket!

Recommendations to other buyers: This product is second to none. It is so easy to setup that you can give it a good evaluation with little effort.

Pros: Easy to use and setup. Great quality quotes, and the ability to break down recurring charges and one time charges is great.

Cons: The additional cost for a company that does a high volume of quotes in another CRM makes it tough. The CRM integration is improving, but still requires too many moving pieces to the sales process.

Overall: The company stands behind their product. They work with you to make sure you are well trained and able to implement the software into your business. The quotes are very high quality and customers are really impressed when they get them. The improvements in the integration with CRM's makes it an even better value.

Absolutely amazing.

Pros: It does everything I need it to (and more), and is backed by one of the best services teams I have ever seen.

Cons: I honestly cannot say - everything that was not perfect they fixed and tailored to me.

Overall: Looking for a flexible online quoting solution I researched a lot of options, as most of you would. Socket seemed to have everything I needed, so I tried it out. The response time of the sales and service team was exceptional. And even though I only initially signed up for the low end plan, they treated me like a high end client - going so far as to expand one of the data entry fields because I kinda sorta thought it didn't quite suit me. I have never seen that level of customization and willingness to make change - and they did it in about an hour. I couldn't even get my own IT team to respond that fast to me.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you think something can't be done, ask. It likely can be done; or they will find a way to do it for you.

WOW! So Fast and Flexible!

Comments: When we launched our company we were generating Excel quotes with a very loose sign-off process for new customers. After implementing SocketApp, we were able to cut our sales quoting time from 1 hour to 1 minute while creating a more professional and legally binding quote sign-off process. The integration to Stripe has also saved our accounting team a tremendous amount of time. I love being able to control all off the labels and messages that go out. This helps to align the quoting language with our values / terminology.

Easy to configure. Easy to implement. Attentive and proactive assistance.

Comments: After years of Word and Excel quotes. I HAD enough! I was determined to find a tool that was easy to initially set up and configure for complex quotes and easy for the sales team to use. Upon first use, I was immediately impressed with their outstanding support and the tool¿s flexibility. Our three person sales team generates up to 5 complex quotes per day. The Socket Team has created a tool that allows us to create complex quotes in a few button clicks!

Initial configuration was very easy, about a day¿s work. The interface is intuitive and clean. There has not been a situation where I could not configure the quote to my exact needs or the customer requirements. Every time I ask the support team a question, I get an immediate response.

Every morning I open Socket and Highrise. I create quotes in Socket and track correspondence and tasks in Highrise. The combination of these two tools gives us quote history, a chain of customer correspondence, and action items. Going back to Word or Excel would be like cutting off the sales team¿s arms, hands and legs!!

Socket has given me HOURS more that I spend on maintaining our prospective customers.

Comments: We sell configurable product, boats, trailers and motors, so the CPQ side of things was important, ability top select a number of options and have a proposal with a Photo produced in seconds not hours is important, while at the same time constraining the options to only those that are valid. e.g. the Transom will only support a maximum HP and Weight

Pros: Easy to use, pretty easy to configure Easy to integrate with maichimp

Cons: The rendering engine is a 3rd party and it does not insert page breaks and if a photo is too large then it completely screws up the output, or inserts many (15) blank pages. You cannot build rules, e.g. if weight of engine is greater than the max then display an alert. You can update the Parent prices via a csv file but you cannot upload the child parts (even if they have a SKU via an upload) this would save 100's of hours when a new price book is released.

Pros: With Socket, it takes very little time to build custom quotation templates that streamline and automate the process of creating customer quotations. We like the fact that some templates can be publicly accessed while others are privately accessed.

Cons: We really have nothing to complain about in terms of the program, which has been 100% reliable. The management people at Socket have also been very open to suggestions and as a result, we see improvements and enhancements being added each month.

Overall: GPS Commander provides GPS Tracking systems to commercial organizations throughout North America. As most of our business comes directly as a result of our website at www.gpscommander.com, we strive to make our product and pricing information as accessible and easy to follow as possible for prospective new customers.

The GPS tracking business is ultra competitive, so we believe that having a friendly, accurate and professional online presence is a key to our success. For these reasons, we chose Socket's online quoting software solution for its unique ability to combine professional automated customer quotations with full eCommerce capability.

Socket has become a key part of our business due to its ability to generate and track all of our online quotations and leads, as well as its ability to facilitate online orders. It even integrates to our CRM program for lead tracking. Another key benefit is Socket's ability to automate our recurring credit card transactions each month.
