How to prepare an RFI, RFQ or RFP
For many large businesses you will be required to conduct a Request for Information (RFI), Request for Quote (RFQ) or Request for Proposal (RFI) as part of your procurement process in finding a new supplier for business products or services. If you are in charge of the process determining just which suppliers to invite can be overwhelming, let alone writing the actual document!
Just for call centre outsourcers alone there are literally hundreds of suppliers all of varying levels of quality and experience combined with specialists that may be more focussed on B2B or B2C, telemarketing, sales, service, complaints management etc as well as industry vertical specialists like financial services, automotive, retail etc.
Throw in technology vendors, consultants and more and it can cause a serious headache!
