The RFP - Key to Accurate Software Selection
A detailed Request for Proposal template, i.e., an RFP model, is at its core a detailed requirements checklist, and is the best tool for evaluating software to ensure it supports the operational needs of ALL users. If important criteria are missing because the request for proposal is not detailed enough then any system built with it will be prone to time-consuming "do-overs" & cost over-runs. A comprehensive RFP enables the process of selecting software to focus more on the specific needs of each individual business procedure. Infotivity RFP templates are the most detailed in the industry, and prevent crucial needs from slipping through the cracks, and help ensure the best software is selected.
Quickly Identify Requirements in DetailOne of the best way to quickly identify user needs is to send the software features found in an Infotivity Request for Proposals RFP template to potential users, and then let them identify what is and is not important to them. Infotivity RFP Templates are an excellent sources for these types of requirements checklists. These detailed checklists also provide the benefit of acting as a "memory jogger" to help users remember the time-wasting issues they face daily in their jobs.
