PROOF OF VALUE
Respond to more RFPs
Ikaun gives the business development team the power to work autonomously in creating accurate proposals, while still maintaining high-quality pitches and a higher win rate. Client expectations continue to increase, putting more pressure on business development to respond to RFPs faster.
A better way to find, manage and effectively utilize
collective knowledge and skillsets.
Before ikaun: responding to RFPs and pitching new clients is insanely time-consuming, files are all over the place and you're not sure which one is most up-to-date. You don't have all the information needed from SMEs or attorneys, and you can't identify bottlenecks in the system, because there is no system to assess.
After ikaun: you're responding to 40% more RFPs every month, and creating world-class pitches at the same time. You're differentiating your firm from the competition and better understanding why you win and why you lose, flanking the competition at every turn. You'll be the firm others fear to compete with because of your polish, speed, and quality.
