IT Market Assessment
Our Rapid RFI (RRFI) Service is designed to conduct your initial technology market assessment in double-quick time.
We aim to introduce you to the very best technology vendors that can satisfy your need - and then quickly shortlist those that you really like.
We handle the whole process for you - writing up your requirement as a short problem-statement document, and liaising with the vendor sales community. With you and your team every step of the way.
We take care of the RFI process for you - handling everything you need to conduct a quick but extensive market assessment:
We interview your team to understand the need.
We work with you to build your long list of vendors.
We write the RFI document in vendor-friendly language and issue it to the tech companies.
We use our network of vendor contacts to shortcut access to the sales team and handle all the initial qualification calls.
We run the process - briefing the internal and external teams and hosting the vendor presentations.
We guide and advise on your shortlist options.
How is it
We believe that the RFI stage should be quick and simple. It is all about talking to a range of vendors and finding out which ones are potential partners, and which ones aren't.
How do we reduce the time needed for an RFI? We:
Shortcut connections to the vendor community.
Use our pre-built RFI templates to publish quickly.
Arrange and host a regular cadence of vendor calls.
Provide pre-built score sheets to find your shortlist.
Encourage the team to move quickly throughout.
The quicker we can get to the shortlist, the faster the time to value.
We don't mind what your technology need is, the Rapid RFI is designed for ANY enterprise project requirement. From AI to a new finance system, and from an ERP solution to a new CRM platform. Whatever the need, the Rapid RFI process will fit.
It fits any technology requirement because it is a simple approach. We work with you to understand what you are looking to achieve in your project. We write that up in vendor-friendly language in an RFI document. We approach the market, speak to the various potential vendors, and invite them to respond. Simple.
