  • It's strange, what you learn working at an RFP Software company. This is my last post as the Marketing Manager for RFP365, and while I'm excited for my next challenge, writing this is bittersweet for me. I can't help but get contemplative and think if there was one last thing I could leave you with, what would it be?  Three years ago, when I first joined RFP365, I had no idea what an RFP was. ...

  • I'm a Marketer. And I know both from a professional and personal standpoint, that you are (rightly) skeptical when you shop. Especially when you're evaluating key investments like RFP software. Because the provider can say whatever they want, you have to depend on reviews, trials, and testimonials from customers with similar challenges to be truly well-informed.  Enter our Customer Spotlight s...

  • I’m really smart, I swear. But I still had a breakdown during my college stats final. I sat at my desk, staring at all the numbers and percentages... and started to hyperventilate -- I actually had to be sent to the hallway to finish my test. So you can imagine how I felt when I was asked to do my first weighted-scoring-RFP.  And because I'd promised myself I’d never (again) cry over the spill...

  • Things like RFP scoring, and really anything involving the word percentage, tends to make me hyperventilate. So when you throw the words "weighted scoring" at me I immediately panic. Luckily, we've found some tips for making RFP weighted scoring so simple even I can do it (and believe me that's saying something).  In Part I we covered  a simple explanation of what RFP weighted scoring is, and ...

  • “American consumers are subsidizing the cost of prescription drugs for the rest of the world.

  • Sending out bad RFPs is a critical misstep for benefit brokers and consultants. Top carriers are always in high demand, so if you send them a subpar request, they’re less likely to respond.  Moreover, vendor selection usually requires an extensive amount of time and resources, so it’s important to get your RFP right the first time to cut down on unnecessary back-and-forth emails that ...

  • It's easy to get lazy about our RFP responses. We already have a full plate, and the last thing we need is another 100+ questions to answer.

  • Traditional RFP process means information is painstakingly created, and then lost. Data sits in stagnant documents instead of being analyzed. Teams spend countless hours on RFPs, but walk away without the insights they need. They have better technology for social media than this crucial business effort. People often ask us why we built RFP365. The answer is we wanted to bring RFPs int...

  • There are very few industries that just don't innovate. That won’t change, adapt, or evolve. But the RFP process has certainly been one of them, a “digital last frontier." Case in point, this is how I explain traditional RFP responding:  If you’re laughing on the outside, it’s because you’re likely crying on the inside. So if you've ever wondered if there was a better way to respond t...
