What are the best aspects of this product?
How Octiv defines the concept of assets really enjoyable. It looks at assets as a collection of images, content and text snippets that can be continually revised and used by simply dragging and dropping the asset into the document. It has provided us a single authoritative source for proposal content where all assets are located and helps us determine the most up-to-date content.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Some of the software WYSIWYG editor tools (particularly tables and ordered/unordered lists) don't behave like you would expect when you export the document as a PDF or Word file. Everything works fine in the web view of the proposals however. I was able to find workarounds for the issues I was experiencing, but they are not very intuitive.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
I really enjoy using assets for building proposals through Octiv. It not only saves a lot of time, but it allows me to have one authoritative source for all my proposal content. It has helped keep our messaging consistent across all proposals. The reporting also lets me to see all our proposals in one place, each with a detailed history of the document.
