Vendor selection and RFP services
Make right first time software investments
If you are looking to select the right software to provide long lasting benefits and streamline your business, we can help.
Conduit helps organisations to clearly define their requirements and decision-making criteria, before thoroughly evaluating software solutions against those to select the right tool for the job.
Our experienced consultants can manage the vendor selection and RFP process from start to finish, minimising business disruption and the risk of selecting the wrong supplier.
What we offer
Scope, vision and requirements definition
The right decision requires the right planning and groundwork. Before engaging with software vendors you need be clear on the requirements and the outcomes you want to achieve. What are the problems are you trying to solve? Where would the biggest impact be seen? Are you and your team ready for change?
Companies often leap into software selection with the right intentions but not enough of the right preparation. Only to discover that they have not been able to communicate their most important needs, or that with some changes, they could live with their existing solution.
How Conduit can help:
- Readiness assessment: helping you decide if the time is right to invest or if optimising current software would be more cost-effective
- Mapping of existing processes to identify friction and potential productivity gains; giving vendors crucial context into your business
- Defining future state vision and goals
- Requirements gathering, prioritisation and documentation
- Team and stakeholder engagement to ensure consensus is achieved and new solutions are well adopted
RFP and bid process management
A well-handled request for proposal (RFP) process allows you to compare multiple vendors, quickly revealing the strengths and weaknesses that will inform your decision. The RFP document details the project specifics , including scope, budget and target delivery schedule and asks software vendors to respond with a bid for the work. Multiple bids can then easily be compared, using weighted scoring if necessary, to establish the right choice.
Conduit can provide end to end RFP coordination and bid process management
