Once an organization receives a request for proposal, generally the next steps are to import the document into an RFP automation software.
A standard RFP automation software faces major adoption issues due to a difficult, manual import process. Importing complex documents in various file formats (Word, Excel, PDF) is extremely challenging and is most likely entirely self-service. Reformatting workarounds are required to handle more complex documents. The reformatting that is required during import can also create challenges when the proposal is ready to be exported.

“Ombud makes writing RFX responses a breeze! With their import wizard, we can easily build a compliant response document in seconds. Using the response library allows me to quickly search previous responses that may align to the current question, and, if necessary, quickly adjust the response to fit the current request.
