CIS Configurator

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.

Scout RFP

Scout RP is wonderful to help keep an RFP very organized. It is excellent to have a single version, so that all team members helping compile an RFP response have a single place to know that they are on the current version. If a company doesn't want to respond within Scout RFP, it's my understanding that the RFP information can be exported from Scout RFP, compiled in a different tool (like XLS), and then pulled back into Scout RFP for submission.From a collaboration standpoint, there's not an easy way to "assign" questions or items. Sometimes at my company, we need different experts to answer different questions. We have to use another tool, like email or Slack, to let that person know he/she needs to answer. However, in other tools, a certain block can be assigned to the person internally within the tool.

I have not used many products but I am very fond of CIS

Scout RFP

I have only used RFPIO to facilitate searching for RFP answers. I have used Scout RFP only to respond to customer RFPs. I assume they have functional overlap, but my interactions with each have not included this functional overlap. For each tool's respective use, I have found them very simple, intuitive, and helpful.

Return on Investment

CIS Configurator

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

Scout RFP

  • Ease of responding to RFPs and winning business
  • I don't have visibility into whether we have an actual $$$ of deals closed where we responded to the RFP within Scout RFP
  • Other departments of my company may use Scout RFP for sending out RFPs and collecting RFP responses, thus reducing costs to issue RFPs
