Draft a 3-page unsolicited proposal, following all the instructions for an unsolicited proposal based on the following scenario:
Your boss, the national sales manager, insists that all company sales reps continue to carry full-sized laptop computers for making presentations to clients and to manage files and communication tasks. In addition to your laptops, you and your colleagues have to carry a bulky printed catalog and a variety of product samples- up and down stairs, on and off airplanes, and in and out of your cars. You are desperate to lighten the load, and you come up with the idea that switching from laptops to tablets would help the sales team. You jot down these following thoughts and questions.
1.can sales reps type at an adequate speed on tablets without a conventional keyboard?
2.can sales reps make informal “table-top” presentations on tablets the way they can on their laptops? (currently, sales reps can sit at a conference room table and give a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation to two or three people, without the need for a projector screen.)
3.Do tablets have a sufficient selection of business software, from wood processing to data base management software?
4.How much will the tablets cost and can we substantiate a return on investment in time and efficiency?
You task is to research these questions, as well as research the various technologies, costs, availability, and functionality, etc. of Laptops vs Tablets. Then generate an unsolicited proposal detailing your analysis, suggestions, and conclusions, all to convince your boss of which is the best course of action for the company to take a why?
