Is too much of your seller’s time spent on creating new pitch decks or finding information to create effective sales proposals and RFP responses? The main bottleneck in success remains in the ability to quickly and easily find content and internal subject matter experts, as well as the ability to assemble this information in a consistent and efficient manner.
Sellers have been psychologically conditioned to look for answers outside of your outdated content libraries, and instead fire off emails to answer questions like: Where is our latest case study? Who has experience in this service offering? What are our updated service descriptions? Do we have any previous proposals for “XYZ”? This list of questions goes on and on…
What sellers need to create winning proposals:
- A better way to search through existing proposals and winning RFPs
- Ability to quickly find internal subject matter experts to provide the best responses and relevant experience
- Access to an updated and organized content library to easily import assets, images, descriptions, and case studies into their proposal
- Analytics to measure the effectiveness of proposals and leverage past learnings
