View details at Fit/GAP Analysis Details.


     

          Identify BOTH LOS Software Features Availability and Deliverability

    Unlike other RFP templates that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex Loan Origination (LOS) 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 LOS RFP Master function is useful during both the 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 LOS software functionality and vendor invoicing.

    Production control sample questions


     

          Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

    LOS Software Solutions

    Unlike other RFP templates, an time and management software RFP Master template 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 LOS system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.

          Effectively Manage Implementation

    Enhancement Cost Tracker

    This LOS RFP template provides an "Enhancement Cost" column for cross-referencing vendor invoices with the estimated cost of each custom custom script and/or source code modification proposed by the vendor. This makes the engineer-to-order enterprise resource planning RFP an ideal tool for managing vendor invoices effectively. The uses of this are many: preventing payments to vendors from exceeding usable system progress, preventing vendor over-billing, and prevents proposed tasks from being omitted, and as an implementation audit tool.
     


     

          Workflow Topics Included.

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

          WEIGHTED GRADE POINT SCORING

          These comprehensive and CUSTOMIZABLE Weighted Grade Point Scoring functions are used to determine how well MATCHED a vendor Loan Origination (LOS) proposal is to your specific prioritized engineer-to-order requirements


     

          Weighted Grade Score Graph

    Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed LOS system. This is calculated as follows: The enterprise resource planning 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 Loan Origination (LOS) software 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 engineer-to-order enterprise resource planning 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 LOS 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.


     

          Feature Delivery Method Comparison:

    An analysis of how each engineer-to-order vendor is proposing to deliver the system feature/function contained in their engineer-to-order enterprise resource planning proposal. The graph below shows the percentage that is Fully Supported "out-of-the-box", the percentage to be done via Report Writer, a Configuration Parameter, or Third-Party add-in, versus the percentage to be done via Custom Coding (Scripting / Programming). This information is very useful in terms of identifying RISK, since a Fully Supported (and tested) engineer-to-order feature presents far less risk than that same enterprise resource planning feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


     

          LOS Supportability Index Graph:

    The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much engineer-to-order enterprise resource planning software support and maintenance may be required to keep each proposed software system running at full potential over it's lifetime. This score is determined by how much custom coding is required to implement the proposed Loan Origination (LOS) software, and which business processes depend on the customized software.


     

          Overall Comparison Graph:

    This graph compares both the Weighted Grade (Suitability) Score, Supportability Index, and the Vendor Capabilities Profile side-by-side for easy reference. It is important to see how much custom coding is in a proposed engineer-to-order system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that engineer-to-order enterprise resource planning system. Therefore, the more custom coding, the more expertise and capabilities a vendor should have.


     

          Vendor Profile Score Graph:

    The backgrounds, expertise, capabilities, and certifications of each vendor is obtained in the Vendor Global Issues section of the LOS RFP. The LOS vendor responses to this section are totaled separately from the software functionality topics, and this data is used to calculate the "Vendor Profile Score". The higher the score, the more CAPABILITIES a vendor is probably going to be.


     

          Cost Savings Analysis:

    Calculates and illustrates Yearly Savings, Payback Period, Return on Investment (ROI), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), and other decision making ratios pertinent to a software/platform selection project.
