About RFP365

Just say the word RFP and you'll immediately hear horror stories. While technology has optimized nearly every facet of business, the Request for Proposal process has remained historically frustrating and inconsistent...for both Buyers and their Vendors. 

We experienced all the inefficiencies first hand and saw the need for a simple, yet powerful solution; something that would allow Buyers to truly partner with their Vendors. So we built RFP365.

Today, our total collaboration platform helps:

  • Organizations of all sizes and industries streamline competitive buying events.
  • Vendors reuse past work and respond to RFPs faster.
  • Buyers conduct RFPs more efficiently, so contracts can be rebid more often.
  • Stakeholders make key, data-driven purchasing decisions.
  • Procurement teams strengthen relationships with their Vendor Communities.

Our mission is to transform e-procurement and help build positive Vendor Communities. 

When teams use RFP365, they're empowered to share data, not documents. We ensure each stakeholder has a voice and every sourcing decision is based on facts.

About the RFP Process

I would hope to have an RFP by these guys [RFP365], because it's just too complicated a process — I feel that way from the government standpoint … [the process] needs to be faster. [Kansas City Business Journal]
