Research

The research stage is when things begin to get overwhelming for many software buyers. At this point, you’re putting the time in to learn more about what different software solutions offer and what you need from them.

Request for Proposal (RFP)

Our support doesn’t stop once you’ve narrowed down your shortlist of vendors. Next, we can help you with generating an RFP.

Guided RFP

The guided RFP solution provides a comprehensive RFP, vendor scorecard and price quotes based on your requirements. We can facilitate the guided RFP process for up to five vendors.

This allows you to run a single, fully guided RFP process for any software category against your vendor shortlist. The guided RFP is great for those who want to expedite the process. In three weeks (typically), we can:

  • Enter your requirements into SelectHub and create an RFP
  • Formulate questions to send to vendors and then select software based on your input and our data
  • Deliver the RFP through our platform and review and analyze the vendor responses
  • Finally, your Stakeholders accept and evaluate responses for their area of expertise. Once that’s complete, we deliver a price comparison scorecard which explains how each product scored against your requirements.

Vendor Viability and Proof of Concept

Now that you have your RFx, you’re working through the responses to determine which product you should select.

RFI Scorecard – a Guided Service

The RFI Scorecard is a simple and effective way to compile a vendor scorecard based on your requirements. Based on the products you sent RFI’s to and your requirements, we’ll compile an in-depth comparison scorecard. We incorporate vendor responses alongside our data to help you make the best decision.

Guided POC

Run a single, fully guided proof-of-concept (POC) process for any software category with up to three participating vendors. The guided POC defines demo use cases and success criteria, has vendors demo their functionality per those use cases and finally, rates or ranks those demos.
In two to four weeks (typically), we can:

  • After your RFI (ours or yours) is finished, we build use cases and define success criteria
  • Then, we share with vendors ad guide vendor acceptance
  • Next, Responding Vendors demonstrate while Stakeholders use SelectHub to rate capabilities against their requirements
  • Finally, we compile technical proof-points the deliver the POC Demo Scorecard in a final meeting
