I like it when we are looking to see which patient is on which prescriptions and when a note is needed to be sent to the doctor we can mark it urgent. Sometimes this backfires and the note can be overlooked and an urgent message can be sitting in a file for a while.

RFPIO

RFPIO is suited for many scenarios. You can use it to arm your sales team with content and answers, you can use it for proposals and you can use it as a content management system. The uses of the system are truly endless! Think outside of the box because you can creatively leverage the system to serve the needs of many teams within your organization

Pros

CIS Configurator

  • Confidentiality with health records
  • Communications between work and the doctors
  • Areas to send prescriptions
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

RFPIO

  • Manages structure responses well
  • Manages permissions from the various users that access the solution
  • Allows for a global deployment with built in language capabilities
  • Allows for 100% visibility into the RFx process for all stakeholders
  • Allows for ease of answering via ML that has been built in

Cons

CIS Configurator

  • Sometimes the site is down for a period of time and this disrupts the workflow
  • Pulling up multiple patients can sometimes get confusing
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

RFPIO

  • Answer library creates unique records for each Q&A for each RFP. This means if you use an auto-generated answer from an exact matching RFP you end up with two records. This creates some unnecessary admin time on the back-end to merge duplicates. And during high-volume RFP seasons this work likely just isn't getting done.
  • Salesforce integrations only available for SF Enterprise users, which wasn't made clear during initial sign-up so we had to get a refund after the fact.
  • No custom roles settings which would be extremely helpful for our team, as a sales user doesn't need to see the same things as an RFP team user or a SME.

RFPIO support is top notch and I really think the backbone of the company. Not only are they always readily available, they care and take suggestions seriously.

We were able to complete an RFP during our free trial. We were already leaning toward RFPIO but that pushed us over the edge.

Alternatives Considered

CIS Configurator

I have not used many products but I am very fond of CIS
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

RFPIO

At the time, three years ago, we evaluated Loopio as an alternative to RFPIO. Loopio didn't have the same resources as far as dynamic branding, content segmentation ability and was less price competitive than RFPIO. RFPIO also has an unlimited user model where you are not charged per user like many other RFP automation solutions. This makes the price much more scalable and also allows for creative engineering as far as use of the system

Return on Investment

CIS Configurator

  • We are able to work faster and bring in more clients with an electronic system
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

RFPIO

  • Our response time has gone from 2 weeks, to around 24hrs of addressing an RFP
  • We have seen considerable savings with reallocated headcount and reduced effort spent on other critical areas
  • Our previous process had a blind spot when it came to visibility. Now we have 100% visibility across the organization.
