Proposal Management for SharePoint/Office 365

When you work better to win, you win better work.

Too often companies lose work because of an unclear, unconvincing and underwhelming proposal. Why? Proposal Managers spend way too much time tracking down critical data and managing various inputs and authors necessary to put together a complex, winning proposal that demonstrates not only the solution to the problem at hand, but also their companies’ capabilities. That’s not how we see effective proposal management.

i3solutions has spent over 18 years developing technical solutions to streamline and mature the proposal management processes. During this time, the Proposal Consultants at i3solutions have worked directly with all sizes of commercial organizations as well as the Federal Contractors (#GovCon) Business Development, Capture Management, Proposal Management and IDIQ Task Order management teams for a wide range of organizations in multiple industries to review their proposals, processes, and people. This opportunity has provided i3solutions with a wealth of knowledge and best practices for managing the proposal process and developing winning proposal. Let our Proposal Consultants join your proposal management and business development teams to bring these winning solutions and concepts to your organization.

Jump start your proposal process

Jump start your Proposal Process by answering these questions with the “Can Do” feature of our Proposal Management System:

  1. What if your proposal authors could easily search for and retrieve content from past successful proposals?
  2. What if there was a way to publish not only entire proposals, but also effective proposal sections from winning proposals?
  3. What if publishing, searching, previewing, and importing proposal content could all be done from within the proposal document, while authoring the proposal?
  4. What if you could create a centralized library for Past Performance, Resumes, Graphics/images, Boiler Plate, Submitted Proposals, Best Practices, and more?
  5. What if you could create easy to view lists for My Proposals, My Work, My Tasks, My Projects, My Assignments, My Documents and other user or team specific information?
  6. What if you could establish a 360 degree view of each opportunity that you are tracking?
  7. What if you had role-based security gives you a secure environment to control access to pricing documents/volumes, reference materials, technical volumes, and other artifacts that you wish to lock down.
