Scion Analytics Takes a Look at a Page of History

Scion Analytics Takes a Look at a Page of History

At midnight, we say goodbye to a year in which we lived in the pages of history textbooks. 2020 was an extraordinary year. It brought the world to a halt and reshaped the way we live, do business, and connect. We were apart, socially distanced, quarantined, and cocooned in homes with the news loops to keep us company. Yet we were closer together with kindness, empathy, compassion, all the shades of human goodness that overcome in the name of life.  It changed us as Americans, as a nation united by freedom and opportunity to be grateful for our grace.

We stood together and watched the strength of our country as America stood together during the 2008 financial crisis and 9/11. As Americans, we know some things for sure. You cannot put a price on freedom.

You cannot restraint the progress of technology with fear. When living in unprecedented times, life is made better by the efficiency of technology. There’s safety in the predictability of automation for internal processes and customer processes, a reprieve from the changes of the world. The innovation of AI has made the digital experience hyper-personalized, enabling chatbots and interactive websites to develop a level of empathy for the user experience unseen before the pandemic.  In the coming years, questions are raised for businesses navigating the gap between automation and human-to-human experience, a dynamic that was wildly disrupted by the pandemic.

A Start Of A New Year

As the new year dawns, lessons learned from businesses tested by required remote working conditions and shifting consumer demand will dictate the opportunities to come. A business in 2021, will not only be measured on profitability but also agility. The ability to pivot, especially for enterprise level businesses in a time of need.

In 2021, what will our relationship be to the government, economy, healthcare, and each other?

Hope Of Promise And Prosperity 

As humans, we are hardwired for connections. Waves of social distancing have physically robbed us of that, as restaurants and malls became deserts, we became more comfortable with absence. A paradox arose, as we met our coworkers, friends and loved ones online, we communicated more often and intimately with them. Emails, Tweets, Facebook messages, Instagram posts, group texts, and phone calls filled the air, as they are safer and more urgent to exchange.

We look to the future scarred by the crisis as full of opportunity. Post-pandemic days that favor hope with promise and prosperity. If human errors during the pandemic gave rise to ideas as light bulbs with innovation, humanity moves forward in history textbooks. Communication in plain language during crisis taught us that words have the power to build or tear down empires.

In 2021, you can let go of the word fear and find comfort in trust. You can pass on empathy, kindness and compassion that were in dire need during the pandemic to a friend or a stranger. For a moment, you can stop in gratitude in nature, the outdoors that remains unchanged and beautiful, no matter the season. Life unfolds at the moment marked by breath, the secret of new beginnings. This new year, in a world that has been forever changed, we look to the simple things such as love and nature to be hyperconnected in the heart.

Flexible Document Analyzer Software For Your Business

Flexible Document Analyzer Software For Your Business

All tech solutions are not created equal. As innovation introduced hyper-personalization to consumers, it extended to software systems that automate processes from small to enterprise size businesses. A flexible tech solution is one that empowers users and improves the bottom line. In a continued conversation with Len Terranova, the Solutions Director elaborates on why the flexibility of software systems is a necessity for moving a business forward.

Features Of PDA

The Professional Document Analyzer (PDA) has a document difference task, a capability that makes it more useful when comparing documents. The PDA has the capabilities of using synonyms and creating dictionaries tailored for business operations within a specific industry. For example, a financial company might create a dictionary with the term “Banking”. If the company had a potential customer who wanted to know if the company could identify the word “banking” as well as “deposit” and other related words in documents, it would configure the PDA for that task.

The ability to create synonyms improves the robustness of the content analysis. Document differences could save a business time, money, and resources when comparing resumes or parsing two or more documents. For example, if a business wants to filter for resumes that are more qualified in banking, it will configure the PDA to look for the recurrence of the word deposit or a synonym of it in a batch of resumes.  

Tasks that would otherwise take multiple manual hours to complete with a highlighter, subjective to determination, and are difficult to keep track of are automated without human error or effort.

The benefit of the PDA is that there is no programming involved in configuring these settings. These are prewritten programs that the user is executing in a sequence. The user has the option to use the synonym setting or create a dictionary, creating a workflow specifically designed for the goal of the project.

Flexibility Of PDA

The beauty of the PDA lies in its flexibility and power across all industries. For example, just like the financial company parsed resumes, an engineering company can compare resumes looking for a project manager and set up synonyms such as project management, PMI, scrum, agile to make the comparison easier for the human resources department.

Another option for content analysis in the PDA is weighted word values. For example, a project manager can assign a weight value to the word based on the relative number of importance and relationship to other words. Therefore, in a document words can have weighted values ranging from 0-1. “PMP” can have the highest weight as a must-have word, “scrum” an average weight as a nice-to-have word and some other skills like “Microsoft project” can have a weight of lower importance when scanning resumes.

The power of the PDA to determine the best resume for a particular job, the best RFP to bid on and which RFP the business has the best chance of winning based on what the company does is a gamechanger.

From small to enterprise-size businesses, a tech solution with tremendous flexibility and customization is an investment in innovation. Essentially, a user can teach the PDA a language that is important to the business and add variations on that language to optimize the software for business performance.

Impact Of Grade Level Readability On Content Marketing

Impact Of Grade Level Readability On Content Marketing

When the internet declared that “content is king’ it changed the conversations around content marketing. Gone were the days of generic information splattered across web pages and enter the days of sophisticated Google search algorithms dictating the value of the content on pages.

So, in a virtual world obsessed with communications, it makes sense for companies to get the fundamentals right. As plain language became the federal standard for communication and was heavily relied upon in crisis communications during the pandemic, it reinforces its simple yet powerful effect.

Plain Language

Plain language is written at an 8th-grade readability level. But what is grade level readability and why is it pertinent to modern marketing and sales? In 1975, the grade-level readability test was commissioned by the US Navy. It was used by the Army to make their instruction manuals more easily readable. A practice that led to cementing it as a United States Military Standard.

Grade-level readability took off as a concept and soon Pennsylvania became the first state to require car insurance policies to be written at a 9th-grade level or lower.

As a vital readability metric, grade level represents the number of years of education you needed to easily understand a piece of written content. The average American reads at an 8th-grade level equivalent to plain language requirements. The New Yorker is written at an 11th-grade level while Harry Potter is written at a 5th-grade level indicating the difference in the complexity of the content.

As far as the Flesch Kincaid reading level scale is concerned, the higher the readability scores, the easier it is to read. Therefore, for the company’s message to be most effective for a wide audience, it needs to be targeted at the appropriate reading level.

This objective metric used to quantify content touches upon the theory of cognitive load. Cognitive load states that people have a limited cognitive capacity for processing content before they tire mentally. Therefore, even the most sophisticated marketing message may be lost if it is too complex or long to read.

Research has found that the more educated the person is and the more specialized their knowledge base is correlated to a greater preference for plain English.

Content Marketing Implications 

So, in a world that is confused by complex content, it pays to know your audience. For a company, marketers should consider the importance of a clear message written at a low-grade level. That is communication that is aware of the cognitive load and constraints of an audience. Having a clear message is the foundation upon which marketers can build a visceral connection with an audience.

Smart companies steer clear of jargon and high brow creative messages that land flat for most readers. The best companies connect with the reader and build trust. Using a readability tool is a smart way to leverage the power of technology to quantify and analyze content before it is communicated to an audience. Flexible settings, customizable dictionaries, and instant grade-level readability scores ensure that the content makes the grade consistently on every page.

Employee Spotlight: Alesia Moore

For some people, childhood is a time of exploration and wonder that uncovers the right direction in adulthood. Alesia Mosse, the new project manager at Scion Analytics is a Tampa native that worked her entire career through the ranks at Verizon. What seemed like a traditional progression on the corporate ladder was sparked by a childhood competition with a great story.

At the age of 10, Alesia entered a storytelling competition at the behest of her mom’s friend. The stage was set for memorizing and reciting, “One Fine Day” by Nonny Hogrogian, a loan from the local library. As Alesia recalls, the story was an elaborate timeline of how a fox had his tail chopped off for stealing milk from an elderly lady and proceeded on a journey of bartering with other animals and nature to ultimately return the stolen milk to the elderly lady. A natural at storytelling, Alesia was mesmerized and won first place in the contest in her local district and going on to win 3rd place at the city competition that year.

A Timeline For Success

The childhood experience that drew on her natural talents led her into a career in project management. When asked what makes for a good presentation, Alesia says “knowing the needs of the audience and delivering the right amount of detail with the right focus”.

Alesia’s inquisitive mind served her well during her 33-year tenure at Verizon. She worked her way up from an administrative assistant to a manager while attending school. She received a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Nova Southeastern University followed by an MBA. She is proud of going to school while working full time using education to further her professional goals.

A Long Career At Verizon

During her role as Project Manager, Business Operations Support at Verizon she held multiple roles and project managed content settlements, carrier settlements, tax, accounting, and revenue assurance. She simultaneously led a team of two testers that were responsible for testing the entire new billing application from end-to-end.  The project was a great success and the team migrated over 6.8 million accounts from a legacy billing system to a new billing system.  In a different Project Manager role, Alesia managed a Revenue Assurance project that compared feeds from 82 IT systems to locate over $65 Million in lost revenue.

In 2017, she retired from Verizon and took 9 months off to do fun things with family and friends. Then, she said she missed the interaction with people and wrapping her brain around projects so when a contracting firm called about a project manager position at Verizon, she jumped on the opportunity.

As a project manager contractor in Verizon, Alesia worked in the network engineering area until July 2020. Then, Jim Eddy, a longtime acquaintance from her days at Verizon contacted Alesia about an opportunity at Scion Analytics.

Project Manager At Scion Analytics 

In her new position, Alesia works with the software development team and manages the testing team to work on the Professional Document Analyzer tool. Alesia is excited about the chance to build the project management role from the ground up with best practices from her years of experience. She refers to her leadership style as “servant leader” and is dedicated to the people she works with and manages. She strives to remove obstacles in front of her team so the project will get done.

As for family life, Alesia has been married to her husband, Herbert for 24 years and has an adorable family of French Bulldogs, Chanel, Carlos, and Blu that keep her hands full.

Analytics Platform Scales Communication and Collaboration

Analytics Platform Scales Communication and Collaboration

Since the dawn of the internet in the 1980s, email has been the standard of communication for businesses. Email is reliable, easy-to-use, and instant in delivery, all necessities for doing business. But how effective is email as a communication method for managing the RFP process? And a more refined question is: how equipped is email to facilitate the collaboration between the proposal team that is vital for winning business?

Automation In 2020

It is not 1987, anymore. In fact, in 2020, the RFP process has evolved with the times to embrace automation. The advent of automation is a result of society being connected to information more than ever. An individual is hyperconnected to an endless sea of content in the span of a day. As content becomes more personalized, so do the tools that augment human intelligence in function. The RFP process was not an exception but a process in dire need of modernization. It is a vestige of procurement, a complex document of that is difficult to wrangle and dissect for a single person.

As the technology for RFP automation and analytics platform improves so does the result. A business that has adopted and customized an analytics platform can increase the volume of RFPs it handles as well as the win rate for its proposals. Ultimately, the future of the RFP process is streamlined with software where buyers and sellers are more connected than ever.

For the RFP process, email is inefficient. There is no telling who sent the initial document and who owns the most current document. In a proposal team, the document might be revised multiple times by various team members- an exercise in frustration.

There is no way to search multiple email threads for relevant information that would add value to RFP. Certain capabilities of RFP automation can create a strong answer library of responses in one place to eliminate repetitive tasks for your team. By optimizing the answer library and fine-tuning the review process, the proposal team is more efficient in delivering a high-quality RFP response. This is the benefit of a dedicated internal tool for winning business. A side effect of this efficiency is clear communication between silos surrounding the completion of the proposal document. An invaluable benefit to any business operation that has been diverted by inconsistency and confusion in communication.

Content Analytics Platform As The Turnkey

An analytics platform not only improves communication during the RFP process but also collaboration. Project managers, business development managers and proposal managers rely on the capability of mapping content to the associate roles to collaborate in a team environment.  This capability empowers the end user to create their own models to focus on responsibilities that matters most to the business.

At a basic level, when it comes to the value of an analytics platform for collaboration is that everyone wants to have enough information to be successful. Part of strategic sourcing is creating a lasting relationship between customers and vendors. By employing an analytics platform in the process, the business leverages strategy and technology to win business.

A Transformational Change

At the end of the day, full of content delivered to fingertips and offices across the invisible strands of internet webbed around the globe, the vendors who issue RFPs want better answers. Conversely, suppliers want more feedback about their responses. An analytics platform is the turnkey to longer partnerships and fewer RFPs. A transformational change in business operations brought about by more collaboration, communication, and transparency in the process.

What Is The Future of RFP Requests?

What Is The Future of RFP Requests?

Welcome to the future. Make yourself comfortable as years of innovation are condensed into a proverbial jar labeled “the future” and carefully doled out by the likes of Elon Musk to tantalize and inspire society. Here is how the future works. In 2007, the iPhone came out from the magical labs of Apple and the world has never been the same. Now, can you imagine the orchestration of your life without the presence of the smartphone? The future as a concept is not exclusive to epic ideas like the iPhone and email but is particular to pockets of progress within industries.  

A great example is the use of RFPs for procurement. An antiquated process that is heavily invested in the human intellect to interpret, sort and synthesize pages and pages of precise requirements from the vendor. This workflow identifies three problems in the RFP process: reliance on manual processes, overuse of the RFP and lack of clear communication.

Automation Is The Future

What does the future hold for the evolution of the RFP?

In a brief glimpse: automation. Digital transformation has swept across industries and changed the world, including the RFP process. According to research, in the last 10 years advances in technology have cut RFP contract signing from 12 months to 6 months. A shorter timeline is not the only improvement, across verticals, many businesses are graduating to completely digital submissions. The paperless cost savings are just the beginning of ways businesses can save on the RFP process.

The bright future operates on technology that moves businesses operations forward at lighting speed. A tech solution for RFP management can multitask on many RFP requirements.  Powered by AI and NLP technologies, the solutions are customizable and flexible for businesses, an advantage which gives the user control and increases productivity. Centralized knowledge libraries breed efficiency in proposal management as do collaboration matrixes for proposal teams.

Content Analytics Platform

As the tech solutions become more sophisticated for the procurement industry, it emphasizes the need for a holistic perspective rather than standalone solutions as a panacea. The early adapters of the software have seen the standardization of digitization sweep industries.  In fact, research has shown that 84 percent of chief procurement officers support digitization to improve procurement performance.

If the overarching goal of the RFP process is better partnerships, a complete platform like a content analytics platform built for RFP issuers and responders is necessary. While a sourcing or proposal only tool may solve specific inefficiencies, a holistic, agile solution empowers the user to change the process.

A centralized place for buyers and sellers to connect is conducive for transparency and visibility. A complete platform reduces costs and inefficiencies and improves communication, necessary components for winning business.

Welcome To The Future 

An exciting thing about the future is that it is full of opportunities that can be explored. With the introduction of robust tech solutions, RFP as a process for doing business can be redefined. In the past, RFPs tended to be voluminous documents with an endless sea of questions that required precision and concentration in the response. The RFP of tomorrow could contract to a brief, clear and to the point document that is heavy on strategy and light on number of pages. And that is a future we want to be a part of.

The Proposal Manager in Holiday Traffic on I-495

The Proposal Manager in Holiday Traffic on I-495

The cars lined up like matchboxes, tight and angry, on a grey highway to nowhere on a day in December. The proposal manager looked out the window, a reprieve for his serious eyes to get lost in the winter fog. Days like these, he thought is why I want to live in Florida. The holidays with spotty snow in the Northeast, days unwrapped and abandoned like lost toys in his solitude. He missed his family.

The proposal manager adjusted the knob on the car radio. The midday traffic came in between reindeer music. WTOP Traffic reported, “Outer Loop I-495 after New Hampshire Ave (#30), LEFT SIDE BLOCKED for the CRASH in MIDDAY TRAFFIC”. His hand dropped to the side of his jacket.

Timing Is Everything 

In an instant of wishful thinking, the cumulous clouds parted the long rows of traffic to allow for forward motion to his destination. The office in Dupont Circle waiting for him. His arrival, his documents, his RACI matrix, his Compliance Matrix, and his AcroSeeker for the proposal. He thought of the adage in his head: “Timing is everything”. The end of the fiscal year, the deadlines, the proposal team waiting nervously for his documents to submit the proposal before the deadline.

The proposal manager imagined the tension in the office, as thick as the exhaust on I-495. The capture manager biting on his nails as he watched the clock.  The business development manager waxing on about missed opportunities and the momentous effort it took to find this RFP. The proposal writer threatening to quit after multiple versions of the proposal went without edits. And so, it goes. A proposal sent to the trash bin graveyard because it is too incomplete to be a contract. If only everyone on the proposal team had the PDA, the accrued time savings could have won the contract.  

Nothing Moves On I-495

Snowflakes floated gracefully in the air like missed opportunities in front of the proposal manager. He wondered, “Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?” Nothing moves on I-495. It is the holidays, and nothing moves. This traffic is the stuff of Washington DC urban legends. The government workers gathering around and commiserating that it took them 2 hours to go 10 miles in traffic. He went inside his mind in search of lost time. Flashes of his boss’ face contorting around the announcement of a missed deadline. The hours stolen by a new RFP for another round of trying to win business. Business operations cyclical like seasons however this winter he found himself unequipped for losing.

Waves of emotions built up on his lined face. He lit a cigarette and opened the window to the congested air of the highway. The lost RFP was trivial against the landscape of his tiny life but felt so intense. His bosses angry face imprinted on his neurotransmitters. Halcyon dreams, Halloween hallucinations and Washington DC urban legends became one crazy story in the middle of I-495 rush hour.

The Steering Wheel 

Pockets of green grass against the side of the road in dirty snow. A patch of wilted dandelions pressed against the cement. The car stood still. The proposal manager opened the car door to let in the biting air. He adjusted his tie and then ripped it off to let his body breathe. The cars stood at attention. The I-495 highway traffic indifferent to his suffering.

A shock of adrenaline ran up his spine and he screamed so loud the passenger of the neighboring car flinched. The proposal manager bent the steering wheel with hands red from anger into submission towards the windshield. It was violent and sad. The car moved a few feet with a disfigured steering wheel. More snow fell uninvited on hood. The proposal manager lit another cigarette and watched the cars stand.

Books about greatness rarely leave room for ambiguity. A goal without a plan is just a pretty dream, a life without direction is a map that has been lined in the spirit of geography without a destination. Even though not all who wonder are lost, those who have inner drive are going places. Neal Peters is young, ambitious, and curious, a potent combination when it comes to building a company in the business of revolutionizing content.

Neal is a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing. While his degree was great on paper, Neal who comes from a big family watched his cousins with less formal education capitalize on the digital marketing boom online.

SEO Manager With A Vision For Possibilities 

After graduation, Neal set out to monetize a career in SEO while working as a department manager at Urban Outfitters. He pitched the district manager on his ideas for social media. The district manager was impressed enough to allot 10 hours of Neal’s retail work week to photographing clothes for social media.

As Neal became more fluent in social media, his longtime girlfriend, Katy graduated college and together they moved to Tampa. Neal, a devoted self-learner took online SEO classes and built his own website, efforts that led to an internship with My City Social. My City Social was quick to recognize Neal’s talent to promote him to a full-time position where he stayed for a year before Scion Analytics called.

His ambitions as SEO Manager at Scion Analytics include getting more organic traffic and working to optimize the website. His overarching goal is to beat competitors in website ranking and organic traffic to establish domain authority. Neal welcomes the singularity of focus on Scion Analytics rather than multiple client accounts, an opportunity that calls for continuous improvement and education.

The Discipline Of SEO 

In his work, Neal has contested the idea that SEO is a purely technical discipline untouched by creativity. The right SEO equation requires thinking outside of the box about what people are typing into Google when looking for a pair of new shoes because it is about so much more than the shoes. Neal’s instinct for thinking outside the box was developed from moving around a lot as a kid, seeing different people and different perspectives that challenged the status quo.

Beyond technical ability, skill and creativity, Neal has an unusually clear focus for his age. He said: “My inner drive for wanting to be successful came from my mom. My parents divorced when I was young, I grew up with my mom who was working 3 or 4 jobs while raising 3 kids. She is my role model for perseverance and drive as she worked so hard to provide us with stability.”

Another source of inspiration is Giannis Antetokounmpo, a Greek professional basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA. As a Wisconsin native, Neal is an avid sports fan. He said: “To me Antetokounmpo represents a great success, he came up from poverty in Greece and got drafted to the NBA. Now, wildly successful as one the most valuable players on the court, Antetokounmpo remains humble as he puts his family and values first.”

How COVID- 19 Redefined The Modern Workplace

How COVID- 19 Redefined The Modern Workplace

The business world is tethered to processes and systems, a reality that hardly moves fast when it comes to changing the status quo. In 2019, in a blink of a month, the entire world changed with the COVID-19 pandemic. Thrown into crisis, business had to operationalize the modern workplace that was still in its infancy.

What does the modern workplace look like in practice? Prior to COVID-19, work from home (WFH) was in place for a few progressive tech companies. Nevertheless, the notion of such freedom from the office structure was a trend yet to gain traction.

Work From Home 

WFH never had the opportunity to take off as a trend because it became a mandatory reality of the pandemic. Remote work was encouraged by the government in its crisis communication plans, a message that was communicated using plain language.

So how did businesses respond to the WFH transition?

With unprecedented times looming over society, businesses were woefully unprepared to transition operations, policies, and processes to remote conditions.

The shock value was succintly summed up by the workers of the New York Subway, in a tweet:

“If you’re able to figure out how to work remotely, please do, even if you don’t have the processes in place. We’d never done this before either, but we hope we’re setting the right example.”

In theory, the modern workplace is simple to execute with the ability to work anytime from anywhere. In lieu of cafes and panoramic outdoor spaces, the reality of WFH is a home office and pajamas. A less structured environment demands for better communication and collaboration skills with coworkers and management.

Work From Home Transition Research

  • 74% of people are fearful of fake news.
  • Most employees see their employer better prepared than their country for the crisis.
  • Globally, 63% of employees want to hear from employers every day. This breaks down into 43% at least once a day, 20% several times a day.

The findings point out how many expectations employees place on their workplace for responsible communication during a time of crisis and transition to remote work.

Responsibility Of Modern Businesses 

So, how do modern businesses handle that responsibility?

A look at the stock market before and after the pandemic shows the spike in stocks for tech tools such as Zoom, whose shares are up 112%. Followed by Slack, Microsoft Teams among other tech platforms. Best practices show that businesses that chose a platform and educated employees who might feel uncertain using new tools were most successful. This approach stressed the importance of regular check in with employees.

However, consistent check ins are not sufficient without clear communication and an established process. As businesses adjust to the new reality of remote work and collaboration, there are constructive 1takeaways that help ensure the success of WFH in the future.

The bottom line is that employees trust information from their employers. In a stressful time of crisis, clear communication using plain language reassures employees of the continuity of work. At large, businesses have an opportunity and obligation to provide employees a positive remote work environment. For an employee to feel like a part of the team even when apart from the office.  

One Request For Proposal A Day

One Request For Proposal A Day

If your business could scale the RFP process, what would it mean for your bottom line?

According to research, the average enterprise-sized company (10,000 employees) submits 321 RFPs a year. That is almost one RFP every day of the year. Most people would assume that enterprise companies are efficient due to size and resources. However, a closer look at business operations unlocks how big players scale the RFP process to win business.

Enterprise Scales RFP 

Most interesting is that research has found that enterprise companies do not have larger response teams than smaller counterparts. Enterprise companies average 7 people per response, while companies with 100-5,000 people average from 7.3 to 8.3 people.

How do then enterprise companies streamline the RFP process for quality to win business at high volume? The average for most companies is 147 RFPs per year with win rates between 44 to 52%. The average for enterprise companies is 321 RFPs per year with win rates of 53%.

Tech Solutions for RFP

Enterprise companies have an edge for crafting high-quality responses by leveraging tech solutions to improve the RFP process. This investment pays off, as research shows that companies using RFP software respond to 152 RFPs a year, while those who do not respond to 103 RFPs. RFP software automates the redundant and repetitive parts of the process speeding up the project. Also, technology brings consistency and bolsters collaboration in organizing a response for a highly detailed and complex document.

Enterprise companies dominate the RFP market due to diverse expertise, internal experts, and high quality of responses. Research shows that when more time is spent on writing RFPs, the outcomes are better. In fact, companies with 80-99% win rates are likely to spend 61 hours writing RFPs.

To figure out how to best use time and resources, companies of all sizes track the timelines of proposal responses. It has been shown that enterprise companies are 25% more likely to track submission timelines.

RFP Software Automation

More rigorous performance tracking enables enterprise companies to leverage new solutions. More specifically, software in a way that the competition is yet to discover. By choosing RFP software automation that has functionalities with flexibility and power, enterprise companies are cutting down response times while increasing the quality of submissions. RFP software that offers customization of dictionaries, libraries and even responsibility assignment matrix is a gamechanger in the industry.

The opportunity to customize an RFP response is revolutionary because it allows the business to control the process. For example, creating and using a defined acronym table for the RFP response not only simplifies the handling of the document, but it also ensures compliance when the wrong identification of one acronym could jeopardize success.

A more innovative solution is needed for 60% of enterprise executives with plans to increase the number of RFPs their companies submit annually. These companies are the movers and shakers of the business world that ultimately shape and change the world at large. To be given the opportunity to use tech solutions that customize and control the RFP process is to move the world forward.

An RFP a day is a reality for some enterprise companies and a reach for most companies across all industries. To bring quality, volume and compliance to the RFP process, companies large and small, need to step into the future of customized automation.
