What is Socket?

Socket is an online quoting software that you can use to create impressive quotes in seconds. The app integrates with your CRM and website, and lets you accept payments online.

Socket’s online quoting software is based on five key components:

  • Configurable online quote forms
  • Fully-automated quoting system
  • Online payment processing
  • Simple website and CRM integration
  • Lead management and reporting

Configurable online quote forms enable you to easily build your own online quote forms, which specify what products/services your quotes contain, and how they are calculated.

The fully-automated quoting system uses your pre-configured quote forms to allow sales employees, resellers, or customers (if you integrate Socket with your website) to create professional, accurate quotes quickly and easily.

Quotes are automatically e-mailed in PDF format and the online payment processing component allows customers to place orders securely online via credit card, with support for recurring billing.

Simple website integration allows you to integrate your quote forms into your website simply by copying and pasting a small piece of auto-generated code directly into your web page of choice. Customer and sales quote information is stored in a secure, centralized database for you to track and manage with Socket’s lead management and reporting features.

Overview of Socket Benefits

Fully-automated quote calculation and generation

Socket’s automated quoting system does all the heavy lifting and allows you or your customers to create comprehensive, accurate, and professional sales quotations in seconds.

Configurable products and services

Setting up user-selectable options for configurable products and services is simple and intuitive. Products are easily priced based on options selected by the user creating the quote (e.g. plan, size, material, etc.).

Flexible pricing options

Socket’s flexible pricing options, such as Tiered Per Unit (i.e. quantity based) or Percentage-based, allow for pricing variability based on quantities ordered or dependent products or services

Simple copy/paste website integration

Socket’s online quoting software can be integrated directly into your website for customer-facing, instant online quotes. No coding knowledge is required. Simply copy/paste the small piece of auto-generated code into your web page.

Customer-facing, instant online quotes

Socket’s customer-facing, online quoting system lets your customers build their own quotes directly from your website. You’ll receive a copy of each quote and be able to track and manage leads using Socket, or have them funneled into your CRM with the app’s third-party integrations, where Socket even lets you integrate with multiple web apps simultaneously, by allowing you to add what it calls Connectors.

Beautiful, professional PDF sales quotations

Quotes are automatically branded to your company in an attractive and professional PDF document and sent to customers via email.

Customers can pay for quotes securely online

Socket’s secure online payment processing lets your customers easily pay online. Customers simply click a link in their quote and are taken to a secure checkout page, where they can pay for their order online. In order to use Socket’s online payment processing feature, you need to have a payment gateway and merchant account with one of its supported providers: Authorize.net, PSiGate, Mirapay, PayPal, Realex Payments, or Stripe.

Collect, track, and manage valuable customer leads

Socket lets you easily track and manage leads by letting you assign them to salespeople, flag them as followed up, or mark them as pending, PO received, ordered, fulfilled, or lost.

What Problems Will Socket Solve?

Scenario 1

We were spending 10 hours per week calculating quotes in Excel, converting them to PDF, and emailing to customers. Socket’s automated quoting system has cut that time almost to zero and customers are now buying online without so much as a phone call.

Features: Automated Quoting System, Online Payments, Website Integration

Scenario 2

With our previous quoting system, we would require the client to sign the agreement attached to the quote which resulted in their having to fax or scan the signed agreement and send it back to us before receiving their deposit. With Socket, they simply have to click on a link in their quote that takes them to the Purchase Order agreement where they can electronically sign their name and pay the required deposit all in one place.

Features: Purchase Orders, Online Payment Processing, Instant Online Quotes

Scenario 3

For an outside sales team when previously quoting customers, they were required to fill out all of the required information. That information was sent back to the office, entered into the system, and a quote was sent back to the customer. With Socket, our sales team can log into the system and generate an instant quote out in the field where the customer can pay for their order immediately. If our sales team can’t get to a customer, we can send them a link to the Quote Form online where they can fill out the form and again, pay online right away.

Features: Automated Quoting System, Online Payment Processing, Customer-Facing, Instant Online Quotes.
