Our RFP covers over 400 individual areas for each vendor on the company, their services, their products and feature capabilities and their pricing. The RFP document that will be created and issued to the chosen vendors will break down the MLS system offering into logical areas and functional areas that will allow us to compare the merits of one proposal against the other more efficiently. Each functional area will have detailed questions that will allow us to make an apples-to-apples comparison. Examples of areas that will be detailed in the RFP include:
||System overview/general specs
|Home page features
||Distributed processing (if needed)
||Vendor RFP Report – Review Meeting
Once the vendor RFP responses are received WAV Group will analyze the RFP responses, interface with the vendors to answer any questions, and create a roll up report that compares each vendor?s responses on all aspects of the RFP. Each major area will be compared as to product strengths, weaknesses, service differences, price differences, etc. WAV Group will send the completed report to the board leadership just prior to inviting vendors in to give presentations. Once we have reviewed the report with your leadership we will determine what vendors to invite in for live demos.
WAV Group attends all demos and even creates a rating sheet to help your review group to evaluate each vendor on an even basis. After a final vendor selection has been made WAV Group will help you negotiate an agreement that is “win-win” for you and the vendor to make sure what you saw in the RFP and demos is actually what you get at cutover. And, if you want, we can even manage the entire conversion process for you.
