      Comprehensive Accounting Software w/Kitting Features Criteria

      Thousand of pre-defined 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.

      More than Detailed Business Accounting Software Features

      Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex software features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. All RFP Masters use a Feature Support Matrix (FSM) that identifies feature AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY Method. This RFP Master function is useful during both the 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.

      Risk & Distributor Accounting w/Kitting Software Solutions Supportability

      Unlike other RFPs, RFP Masters can also identify risk and potential support problems inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix (FSM) used each RFP Master identifies 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" 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 software system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.

      Customizable Weighted Scoring.

      Automatically generate a weighted grade point "Suitability" score, based on your actual priorities, that ranks how well suited each proposed accounting system is to your organization's needs. You can then compare Suitability scores in detail or in 3-D Bar Chart form, as shown below.
