A Detailed & Comprehensive List of:
Identify BOTH PM Software Features Availability and Deliverability
Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex project management system features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This 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 project 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
Uswer Defined Weighted Grade Score
Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed system. 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 project management software system fits your business and software 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 software system to your overall requirements. NOTE this score measures just software functionality, and does not include any measure of vendor background, expertise, support, or programming ability.
Color-Coded, "Apples-to-Apples" Comparison of Proposed Systems
Workflow Topics Included.
The ability of the proposed 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 PM 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 project management (PM) 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 proposals are easy to compare and evaluate!
