IDENTIFY Feature AVAILABILITY & DELIVERABILITY. Unlike other 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 RFP Master includes a Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) to automatically capture this information, which can be used to create very accurate and reliable non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning software system implementation schedules. View samples here.

Determine RISK and SUPPORTABILITY. 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 CMMS & ERP 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:

Non-Manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System Features

6,110 of pre-defined non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning and CMMS 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 CMMS & ERP Software Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning 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 CMMS & non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning 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

CMMS & ERP Software Solutions

Unlike other RFPs, an 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 RFP Master function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large computerized maintenance management & non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning 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

CMMS & Non-Mfg ERP 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 computerized maintenance management & non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning software system proposals side-by-side, feature by feature, in detailed comparisons you control! Keep your project on-schedule and under-budget.
