RFI/RFP/RFQ Creation & Management
Create an end product that is easy to read and respond to. Define and manage your RFx in a structured way: Instead of trying to keep Word/Excel files in sync, create your RFx in a shared repository with full audit trail for each requirement. Use Excel import to upload your previous work.
Drive significant process savings by leveraging previous RFx templates. Any number of sections can be easily stored as a template and uploaded to a new project, or you could import your favourite templates directly from Excel.
Create rich text requirements tailored to your needs. Choose from a variety of requirement types, document the history of the requirement or use tags to associate the requirement with anything you deem relevant. We will also make it really easy to discuss requirements in your team.
Section & Requirement Weights
Assign relative importance to sections & subsections and fixed weights between 1 and 10 to individual requirements. This way you can articulate what is really important in your RFx. Automatic scoring of section compliance will then be a piece of cake.
Productivity & Collaboration
Personalized Tasks & Process Guidance
Dashboards provide an at-a-glance overview of the status of your event while allowing you to drill-down to the lowest level of detail. Our action menu will tell you what needs to be done to move the project forward. We help you keep your eyes on the prize.
Team Management, Roles & Responsibilities
Assign roles and responsibilities to your team based on how you want to run your event. Reassign responsibilities or add new team members on the fly. Give each team member the access rights she needs to do her job based on her role in the project.
Ensure quality control by having writers, reviewers and evaluators assigned to each requirement. Make sure changes later in the process are handled appropriately and with ease. Access the requirement change log to understand how it has evolved over time.
Collaborate seamlessly wherever you are and whenever you access the solution. Provide and receive comments, learn from colleagues, see what other team members are working on in real-time. It is fun to work together.
Working With Suppliers
Tailor unique scoring criteria by using drag & drop in the Formula Builder. Run “what if” scenarios by applying different evaluation models to the same event and switch between them. Use supplier or external data to feed the supplier leaderboard in real-time.
Custom Supplier Criteria
Create unique Supplier Criteria that are relevant for your event. This could range from compliance of sections and underlying subsections in your requirements material, to inclusion of specific supplier response data, to external input from reference visits and anything in between.
Run reverse auctions as an integral part of your supplier evaluation process. Determine what data from each auction cycle you want to share with the participating suppliers. View bids and analyse the bid history.
Superior Supplier Overview
Visualise supplier strengths and weaknesses. Drill-down from at-a-glance overviews to individual requirement responses. Comparing suppliers has never been this easy.
Close the Supplier Loop
Be consistent and treat suppliers fairly. Run structured Q&A sessions. Keep track of your own commitments and the commitments of your suppliers. Manage all commitments within the solution as part of your negotiation process.
