    Hi Guys

    Hope this is posted in the right section.

    Ive got the task of writing a proposal of a systems managment solution (KACE v Altiris v SCCM) and have never written one before. Wondered if anyone could give me any points or had one they could upload so I could take a look at?

    I'm doing a proposal at the moment actually. For something different, but still...

    I started with an overview of the proposal (what it is, why it exists). Then I had a "Considerations" section, for anything that should be considered when making a decision.

    Next up is options, although in your case this would likely be a comparison section, further broken down into key areas. Then there is a costings section, detailing the cost options available (I tried to provide multiple options).

    Finally, a justification section - detailing the benefits of upgrading (or in your case the benefits of having one at all (if you dont already), and of each one.

    In your case, you probably want a final section concluding the proposal. I would avoid personal opinion elsewhere in the document, but in a conclusion you are free to provide a recommendation based on the data presented.

    If you have a bit of time have a look around on the Microsoft website for office templates. You can do a search for them through Word, looking for templates online. I think there are a couple of them there that you could use to get you started.
