Super-smart resources to help you win
When it comes to preparing proposals, there are a lot of moving parts that have to be taken into account. Governmental RFPs tend to be extremely specific, detailed and exacting, with strict deadlines, and it’s important to have a complete understanding of expectations when navigating through the proposal writing process. All it can take is one missed detail or one misunderstood requirement and the entire proposal might be dismissed, and hours of work scuttled.
Writing proposals almost invariably means lots of stakeholders and SME’s involved in the process, and it’s imperative that they be able to communicate effectively and find the best methods and channels to collaborate in preparing the Business proposal.
There are plenty of proposal tools and proposal templates on the market that help achieve these ends, but few can boast the features that Zbizlink can bring to the table.
What you need in the proposal creation and management process is a way to keep information organized and easily accessible for everyone involved. This real-time access to vital information can save so many headaches and slowdowns in the process and can make the difference between putting your proposal over the goal line or seeing it get rejected.
Imagine a proposal tool that compiles all the information you need in one place, like a SharePoint library that’s populated with RFPs, reports, contracts and any other documents you might need in the proposal creation and management process. Now, imagine it organized so that the files you need can be quickly tracked down by author, solicitation number, bidder, procurement agency, data type or even by a given phrase or keyword. If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of digging through a clutter of emails or MS-Office folders to try to find the specific file you need (while the clock is ticking, of course), you’ll appreciate what a powerful proposal tool this could be.
What you need is a way for writers, editors and other stakeholders to have access to the information they need, whenever they need it – a resource that can work online or offline, on any device. It’s the kind of proposal tool that can open doors for you and can let your team collaborate in ways that are clear and direct and can mean the difference between turning in a winning proposal on-time or losing your chance at landing an all-important contract.
