      Unlike other payroll outsourcing RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex business process outsourcing company features, Payroll BPO RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This payroll BPO RFP Master uses a Feature Support Matrix (FSM) that identify feature AVAILABILITY Method. This RFP Master function is useful during both the outsourcing payroll selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable service functionality and vendor invoicing.

BPO Solutions

The Feature Support Matrix (FSM) used in each payroll BPO RFP Master categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX for each vendor RFP response. For example, FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This RFP Master function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large business process outsourcing because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Weighted Grade Score Graph

      Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed payroll BPO service. This is calculated as follows: The vendor response to each RFP question is assigned an unweighted "raw" score. This raw score is then multiplied by the weight factor you entered previously (default = 1) for that RFP question to calculate the weighted score for each response. All of these individual scores are then totaled for use in this comparison. This score is essentially a measure of how well a payroll business process outsourcing service fits your business needs, prioritized by the weight (importance level) you assigned to each question in the RFP. In essence, this score measures the SUITABILITY of each proposed payroll business process outsourcing service to your overall payroll requirements. . NOTE this score measures just functionality, and does not include any measure of vendor background, expertise, support, or programming ability.
