It is much better to prospect brands and find appropriate contacts at a parent account, and not such a strong suit for agencies.

Qvidian RFP & Proposal Automation

Overall, Qvidian is a great piece of software for those who have need for a robust knowledge database application. Its organization and ability to search for records is fantastic, especially if you have a large amount of information that is commonly used. It also has the ability to build finished RFP documents, though my department doesn't utilize this feature, as it doesn't lend itself well to our already established processes. I know that many other users praise that ability, though. When selecting a product such as Qvidian, you should take a look at the type of information that you will be handling, both in quantity and content. If you only have a couple hundred records, or if your records are mostly number-based, then it might not be worth the investment. However, if you're constantly responding to RFPs with several hundred or thousands of answers, and your responses are often lengthy narratives, then Qvidian will definitely be useful. Like any software, there are areas where Qvidian struggles, but the positives definitely outweigh the negatives compared to other software I've used.

Pros

  • Provides email addresses - essential when doing cold email outreach.
  • Provides agencies for each brand/company.
  • Provides media spend for parent company and brand.

  • Because the content is stored in a centralized location that is easy to search, it cuts down the amount of time spent developing a proposal. This in turn increase productivity of proposals and ensures that the content of all proposals are more consistent.
  • Directly related to my previous statement, our proposal process is more efficient, creating a more 'clean', accurate documents for our clients.
  • The ability to create an extensive library of content is most helpful. While most RFP request most of the basic information, there are certainly times when there are requirements that are out of the norm. The 'Q' as I call it is a great place to add this information that is researched so that other co-workers to do not spend precious time researching or recreating the information. The rule is to always search the 'Q' before you ask the 'Q'...lol

It is very effective. The automation results are very nice looking and allow template themes to be reused. It also minimizes the effort required to get a baseline document.

Remote or VPN employees seem to have somewhat slower access time. Server maintenance has improved performance.

They are very much in support of great customer service. They respond quickly with emails and in some cases phone calls to resolve any issues and often times user questions in the past when I could not figure something out.

Live instructor training is expensive, though we have had instructors come to our offices for a ‘refresher’ before. The refresher was more of a “let us fix that for you” than a training on how to do it ourselves.

Alternatives Considered

Winmo allows more dynamic and functional searches, and puts agency and brand contacts in one place. It also allows exports based on spend and in general, is much more dynamic of a software.

We had to get rid of Pragmatech because it was no longer supported, and when all of our computers got upgraded, we could no longer use it. Pragmatech made it easier to search for, edit, and add new records to the database.

Return on Investment

  • Improved efficiency of prospecting.
  • Improved efficiency of finding emails and email syntax.
Bryan Silverman profile photo
  • This database can make it take longer to search for the records that we need, because of it not using a natural word search, and it being constantly out of date due to the time it takes to update. Therefore, it can make us less productive in response times.
