Overall Satisfaction

Qvidian was used as a repository for our Firm's qualitative information. We used the software as a means to make proposal writing more efficient. It was used by a dedicated RFP team.
  • Qvidian is highly customizable. This is a strength for the organization that has specialized needs and preexisting structures.
  • Qvidian support and data migration services were especially valuable because we had a great deal of information in our previous system that we did not want to lose.
  • I was impressed by Qvidian's ability to integrate with MS Office
  • I was frustrated that browser settings had to be so finely tuned to use the software. This was especially challenging in a company that had existing stringent IT browser settings. It made final implementation of the software challenging.
  • I was initially frustrated by the inability to copy and paste from the preview window.
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Ease of standardization across proposals
  • Integrative with other Office tools and email.
  • Proposal Management and Production System (PMAPS)
Qvidian is a more elegant software solution. PMAPS offers almost too much functionality and is extremely expensive.
Given the challenge of migrating and supporting new software solutions, we are likely to continue to use Qvidian. Another consideration is the relative lack of software solutions that provide the same functionality
It is well suited to an environment that has a strong existing library of information formatted in a well-organized hierarchy. It seems as if it would be difficult to start from scratch, so to speak.
