Documents are the lifeblood of any business. Whether you're designing a flyer, sending a quote, or signing a contract, a successful document can make the difference between closing a sale or losing a potential customer.

But it's a lot easier to identify a successful document than it is to make one. Clear, compelling, easy-to-use content doesn't just drop from the sky. It takes the right combination of content, style, and efficiency. And even after you've created your document, there's the challenge of finding out how, or even if, customers respond to your materials.

PandaDoc helps you meet this double challenge of document creation and tracking. Along the way, it streamlines your workflows and automates tasks to make the entire process seamless and efficient.

Let's start with collaboration. You can create teams, assign roles and permissions, and then set up virtual workspaces where documents can be created, reviewed, and edited. In-document comments allow team members to give and receive feedback in real time. And you'll be able to review individual usage to stay on top of who's seen what and for how long they've worked on a project.

The document-creation process is designed for easy replication. Build up the content library with videos, case studies, logos, testimonials, directions, or any other material you might use more than once in a document. You can also add each of your products to a central catalog, and the pricing table feature lets you set and update costs.

Once you've stored all the information necessary for your doc, it's time to start drafting. Instead of recreating the wheel for every project, the intuitive interface lets you simply drag and drop your stored elements. You can arrange layout elements, add fields, and customize text. When everything's just as you need it, save the finished product as a template for efficient use in the future.

At this point, your documents are ready for personalization and action. Integrate your existing customer relationship management (CRM) system to import customer data into specified fields. Then seamlessly send your documents via email right from the PandaDoc interface. You can provide recipients with an eSignature option that works on both desktop and mobile platforms. If you need a series of signatures, PandaDoc lets you specify the order of receipt. It will also automatically notify customers when a doc is waiting for action, and the dashboard gives you an at-a-glance overview of when docs are opened, viewed, and completed.

This dashboard makes it easy to track each document's progress over time, with one-week, one-month, three-month, and one-year timeline reviews. You can also view revenue reports for a comprehensive look at how your business is trending.

PandaDoc isn't just for those looking to build and personalize proposals, quotes, contracts, and more. It's designed so that you can manage the full timeline of your documents' workflows, from creation to signing—all from one interface.
