Overall Satisfaction

In my previous role I was part of a team of people who worked on responding to RFPs and RFQs for the company. We used Qvidian to store proposal question and answer documents we received from the customer as well as using the Library as our database to store previous answers to RFP and RFQ questions and other product information.
  • Allows multiple users to make edits to a central document without having to rely on version control
  • Stores previous proposal questions and answers in a database/library for easy access
  • Automatically compiles a Solution Overview based on selected criteria rather than having to compile it manually
  • Documents get corrupted easily
  • Servers are not equipped to handle multiple large proposals at one time which causes major inconveniences
  • Technical support needs to be improved drastically
  • Organizational efficiency when allowing multiple people to make edits to a central document
  • Time and productivity loss due to corrupted documents and lost information
  • Decreased efficiency due to server crashes and weak technical support
My current company does not use proposal automation software. I would not recommend renewing the use of Qvidian.
Qvidian is well-suited for smaller proposals with concise and basic questions and answers. It is not suited for large-scale proposals with in-depth questions and extensive answers, especially those that contain graphs or images. Not suited for storing multiple large proposals at one time. When Qvidian is pushed to its limits, documents get corrupted and information is lost easily.
