Vendor Assessments

Request for Proposal/Request for Information Design

A concise well-designed RFP and/or RFI will address key concerns and allow companies to gather easily digestible information about potential suppliers. They also foster competition among vendors, clarify potential new solutions, and enable companies to take significant steps toward achieving the most cost-effective, high-quality solution available.

Request for Proposal/Request for Information Response

Each requirement included in an RFP/RFI is designed to achieve an end goal. In order to satisfy your customer, you need to understand the primary motivation, your response should address their goals, demonstrate elevated levels of competency and capability that clearly differentiate you from your competition.

Technology Competitive Landscape Analysis


The purpose of the competitive analysis is to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the technology offerings that consider cost, functionality, scalability, implementation, and training. A thorough assessment should consider the specific needs of your organization in order to drive competitive advantage.

“Only recently have people begun to recognize that working with suppliers is just as important as listening to customers.”
