Engineering Document Management Software

Simplifying Software Selection

   This Ready-to-Use RFP Master with over 1,600 Criteria is focused on selecting engineering document management system software solutions, and provides capabilities that go far beyond those of a traditional RFP limited to asking vendors simple Yes/No questions about software features. Specialized for use in complex information system environments, this RFP Master collects information from vendors about all apects of the engineering document management software implementation project they are proposing.
   Actual screens and questions from this engineering document management RFP are shown below to illustrate how it enables you to easily collect the unique metrics needed to successfully identify, acquire, and implement the EDMS software solution best suited to your company's needs. (Click thumbnails to enlarge) This EDMS RFP also includes questions on cloud computing and voice technology.

    IDENTIFY Feature AVAILABILITY & DELIVERABILITY. Unlike other engineering document management RFPs, Infotivity RFP Masters automatically collect the information needed to identify BOTH the AVAILABILITY of software features, and their DELIVERABILITY, i.e., HOW those features will be delivered. Each EDMS RFP Master includes a Feature Support Matrix (FSM) to automatically capture this information, which can be used to create very accurate and reliable engineering document management software system implementation schedules. View samples here.

    Determine RISK and SUPPORTABILITY. engineering document management RFP Masters automatically evaluate vendor response data collected to quantitatively determine the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX of each proposed software system. This index ranks the potential support problems inherent in each proposal. Accurately compare the amount of ongoing support needed to keep each proposed EDMS software system up and running. Measure the true impact of each system on your business over the long term.  View sample here.

      A Detailed & Comprehensive List of:

Engineering Document Management System Features

      With over 1,255 pre-defined engineering document management RFP criteria ensure no important business requirements or software features "slip through the cracks".  All are in a quantitative format that guarantees vendor responses will be meaningful, consistent, and easy to compare. All questions are professionally prepared by application specialists to address BOTH the STANDARD features and EXCEPTION CASE software functions required.

      Identify BOTH EDMS Software Features Availability and Deliverability

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


      Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

EDMS Software Solutions

      Unlike other engineering document management RFPs, an EDMS RFP Master can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix (FSM) used in each 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, a feature delivered "out of the box" FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This EDMS RFP Master function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large engineering document management system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Color-Coded, "Apples-to-Apples" Comparison of Proposed Systems

EDMS Software Comparison

      These comparison matrices automatically change vendor response cell background color to GREEN, YELLOW, or RED, to reflect how favorable each response is to your needs! Compared to the tedious task of reviewing hundreds of mono-color Yes/No answers, these colored responses allow problem areas to be spotted more easily, and risk assessment is made much more accurate. All required response comparison matrices are included and ready-to-use! Quickly and easily compare engineering document management software system proposals side-by-side, feature by feature, in detailed comparisons you control! Keep your engineering document management software project on-schedule and under-budget.

      Workflow Topics Included.

      The ability of the proposed engineering document management software to successfully integrate with existng business process workflows, or implement new workflows, is critical to a achieving the high productivity increases and ROI expected of the new EDMS system. This RFP Master examines all pertinent Workflow features in detail.


      Vendor Response Input Validation.

      Vendors must answer each RFP question by choosing from a pre-defined list of possible responses. See below for an example of this drop-down list. This forces all vendors to respond to each enterprise/business, web, and engineering document management software question in a consistent, standard manner. Eliminates the days of time typically wasted trying to compare the inconsistent or incomplete vendor responses obtained by using traditional, non-quantitative RFP questions! Ensures vendor engineering document management proposals are easy to compare and evaluate!
