Procurement Automation Procurement Purchasin System Features

      Thousand plus of pre-defined Procurement software 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 EXCEPTION CASE software functions required.

      Identify BOTH Procurement Automation Software Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other Procurement Purchasin RFP templates that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex Procurement 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 Procurement RFP Master function is useful during both the Procurement software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable Procurement software functionality and vendor invoicing.

      Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

Procurement Software Solutions for PSA

Unlike other RFP templates, an Procurement 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 Procurement 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 Procurement RFP system 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 Procurement System automation Procurement 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.

WEIGHTED GRADE POINT SCORING

These comprehensive and CUSTOMIZABLE Weighted Grade Point Scoring functions are used to determine how well MATCHED a vendor proposal is to your specific prioritized requirements.


 

      Workflow Topics Included.

      The ability of the proposed Procurement 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 Procurement system. This software RFP Master examines all pertinent Workflow features in detail.

typical workflow criteria questions for Procurement System enterprise resource planning


 

      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 Procurement 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!

Evaluation Ratios Side-by-Side Comparison

This scorecard uses an extensive set of ratio calculations to compare vendor proposals quickly and efficiently.  High RFP scores can be lifted by a large number of customization or 3rd party scores.  Due to this, it is important to see HOW each proposed system has been set up to perform key processes.  This could insure a very complete Procurement system choice!

      Weighted Grade Score Graph

      Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed Procurement system. This is calculated as follows: The Procurement Purchasin 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 Procurement System enterprise resource planning 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 Procurement Purchasin 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 Procurement 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 Procurement Purchasin vendor is proposing to deliver the system feature/function contained in their Procurement Purchasin 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) Procurement Purchasin feature presents far less risk than that same Procurement Purchasin feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


 

      Procurement Supportability Index Graph:

      The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much Procurement Purchasin management 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 Procurement Purchasin 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 Procurement Purchasin system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that Procurement Purchasin 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 Procurement Purchasin RFP. The Procurement 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.
