Searching for Answers with Qvidian

 

Posted By Kathy Kliskey | Apr 06, 2015

 

At different times in our lives, we find ourselves searching for answers. Whether it's in young adulthood: What college should I attend? Should I even attend? or later in a more relaxed life: Where should I go on vacation? And even including the inevitable: Is the dishwasher clean or dirty?, we encounter questions all the time, from the big to the mundane.  And when we don't immediately know the answer to something, we search, we consult experts, and we consider... Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the Proposal field.  Anyone who has managed proposals, or any part of the process, knows the pain that comes from searching for answers, especially under tight deadlines.

In some of my conversations with customers, I’ve talked a lot about some of the frustration and pain points that they had experienced. Searching for answers, sharing content, and trying to produce proposals with speed was excruciating.

“When doing RFPs without QPA, I felt like I was alone, stranded on an island. Subject matter experts would get frustrated with my questions saying ‘Didn’t I already answer this?’ and they had, but just had no idea where to find the answer. With Qvidian, I know where to find whatever I need.”

Qvidian's Proposal Automation solution helped them breathe again. In addition, their production speed increased multiple times over. The results exceeded their expectations and increased their confidence in themselves and their content.  In turn, their companies increased win rates. Some claim that they have a 50% increase in productivity, saving the team three days of work, others boast that it now takes half the time for 5x faster output.

“We have writers, project managers, and RFP coordinators. All these individuals can create content. Because of that, it’s even more necessary to have a central place to store and manage it all. And now, we do.”
