EP019: Making the RFP Process Easier & More Efficient – with Josie Fey of RFPIO


What makes the process of responding to a request for proposal so difficult? Typically, businesses struggle with keeping everyone on the same page. Are we all looking at the same version of the RFP? Using the same voice? Formatting the document in the same way? It IS challenging to have multiple team members working on the same bid, but the RFPIO software solution makes the process much easier and more efficient.

Josie Fey is the Communications Manager at RFPIO, a revolutionary proposal management software company out of Beaverton, Oregon. The RFPIO technology enhances collaboration and fosters a truly efficient response process. Built by a team that knows RFPs, RFPIO’s intuitive solution is trusted by companies like LinkedIn, Adobe and Zoom, among many others. In her role, Josie handles marketing, public relations and internal communication for the organization.

She discusses what differentiates RFPIO from its competitors in terms of technology, customer support and pricing, and how the company applies user feedback to improve the software.
