Building the Business Case for Proposal Automation
Manual proposal processes are likely costing you far more than you realize. These models waste time and kill the productivity of proposal writers, sales team members, senior staff, and subject experts. Worse yet, mistakes and inconsistencies may be actually losing you opportunities that you would otherwise be winning.
Proposal automation software doesn’t make sense for every business. For example, organizations with less complex sales cycles, or organizations that create few proposals, or organizations that create proposals with no repetitive content or commonly used answers will benefit less from proposal automation. But proposal automation solutions should be carefully considered by any businesses regularly challenged to stand out in a complex buying cycle that involves proposal or RFP response.
Sometimes our need to analyze, quantify expected returns, and prioritize investment can create an environment where it is difficult to decide for or against a proposal automation software investment.
In fact, we estimate that as many as 20% of the organizations that we speak with are in this exact dilemma. For these customers, we recommend a more common-sense approach. Like this:
If they are highly valuable, the costs of mistakes inherent with ‘copy and paste’ proposals will likely justify this investment.
People are the greatest investment for almost every organization. If it is reasonable that proposal automation will free up 50% of the time currently spent making a proposal, this increased productivity will undoubtedly justify investing in proposal automation.
This is just not that complicated. Disgruntled and/or overworked employees turnover more frequently. This is woefully inefficient and costly for any business. If it is easy to visualize proposal software reducing turnover of proposal personnel, buy it immediately!
This becomes a basic math problem. If we can reasonably expect to win one, or two, or ten more deals, the profits from these opportunities will clearly make it easy to justify a purchase of proposal software.
We would love to help your organization better determine the impact and results you should expect from investing in proposal automation software. We can also help you understand where our software best fits.
