Aaron Beashel is marketing manager at Qwilr, the proposal and quote software designed for B2B sales teams. He started his career co-founding a SaaS startup and has since lead marketing teams at some of the world's fastest-growing B2B SaaS companies. He's a strong supporter of digitized alternatives to Word contracts, and simplifying contract negotiations. "A Swiss Army Knife is a generic tool. It does the job well enough for many different applications, but you wouldn’t want to eat a 32 ounce steak with that tiny little knife. Microsoft Word is similar. It's used for everything, but it isn’t necessarily above average at any of them" "Ever had to collaborate on a Microsoft Word document? It usually involves emailing the document back and forth and using crazy filenames like ‘Contract_V27_AARON_CHANGES_FINAL’ to keep track of where you’re at and what changes were made over time" "Once you email a Word document to someone, the document is in their hands forever. It can be forwarded, shared, made public, printed, left on a train and so on."
