E.O.W(End of the Week) Notable Tip: Reduce RFP Lead Times

Happy Friday!

I hope you’ve had a great week.

Today, I will discuss how you can optimize your CRM management process for reducing RFP (request for proposal) lead times while increasing profitability. By developing a client quality plan it becomes easier to vet prospects which makes RFP analysis much easier. RFP lead times (time taken to secure RFP) can be reduced by filtering high quality requests based on your quality plan filters which have lower proposal cycle times, higher profit/margin potential and higher probability of attainability.

Lower proposal cycle times can be attained by collaborating with team members and creating proposal templates that require minimal updates based on average or common project requests. Proposal templates, quality plans, historical and competitive analysis will allow you to budget resources for the purpose of optimizing profits and customer satisfaction. Read our article on Strategic Customer Analysis.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this E.O.W!

As always, “Success is continuous improvement!”
