https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/od/3E/G193T3BWHDQ3.PNGI propose QvidianQvidian Proposal Automation is used by the Proposals Department, so that we can answer complex RFP's and Sole Source requests. The database that has been created makes sure we are consistent in our responses. The Qvidian Proposal Automation tool has also streamlines our process.,Ease of use The database structure is logical (It looks like MS Explorer so it is familiar) Software updates are automatic Updating responses in Qvidian Proposal Automation is quick and easy,Other software I have used allows the automation of a sole source quote more easily,9,Employee efficiency has been increased significantly with the tool. We now have one place to go to find responses for RFP's and Sole Source solicitations. Updating content has been streamlined.,,10,9Good for proposal branding consistency; reporting clunky.Organizes content in a consistent structure. Allows for Mandatory Content and Optional Content within an overall document framework. Maintains branding through Word templates/themes. Allows for the mix of “boilerplate” content, while giving the ability to personalize based on “edit codes”, such as using organization name throughout a proposal, using specific examples or images based on a given vertical/industry etc. A knowledge base/repository for question/answer pairs for RFP Allows “upload” of RFP questions and potentially “automatic” answering based on most popular answers given key words. Integrates to Salesforce.com, though we have not taken advantage, so I’m unsure to what degree it integrates. I assume it will allow to pull in contact name, address, etc.,Until the latest release, the UI was getting “old”. The process of architecting a document seemed backwards (start with the specific content, then build an outline. It has since been fixed in newer versions. Not compatible with all browsers, or not latest version of browsers. Content still requires post-build editing for spacing around table of contents. Some users struggle with setup of Internet Explorer, macros and/or template styles, etc. Reporting is clunky. Does not have ability to configure pricing quotes.,More consistent branding of proposals. Decrease in amount of time to create a proposal, allows more time to customize executive summaries, etc. Decrease in time even more pronounced with RFP responses, assuming answer pairs get updated often with product updates/feature enhancements. Allows new employees to deliver a high quality proposal with minimal ramp time.,6,7,26,3,Delivering consistently branded Proactive Proposals. Assistance in responding to RFPs: A Database of common “question and answer pairs” from typical RFPs received by the company.,,,Vendor implemented Implemented in-house,6,Online training In-person training Self-taught,6,6,End user training is relatively easy for proactive proposals. The RFP module requires online training at a minimum. Administrators would require training to understand document structure and how to architect. How to setup and maintain different user profiles.
