Procurement Done Right Just Got Easier

RFPBlaster™ Enables Cost-effective, Competitive Procurement with Content-rich RFPs

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2009) - Today, RFPBlaster (www.rfpblaster.com) introduces a powerful new tool that enables mid-sized companies, consultants, municipalities, school boards and government agencies to quickly and easily hold a competitive procurement process and get it right the first time. RFPBlaster is the only website exclusively dedicated to providing high-quality, cost-effective and sophisticated Request for Proposals (RFPs) focused on major IT acquisitions. Access to world-class RFPs is as easy as a click of a mouse.

A competitive procurement process is the best way to get the best product or service for the best value. Until now, many mid-sized companies rely on sole sourcing to avoid the time and expense involved in preparing a quality RFP necessary for a competitive process. Or, they resort to multi-vendor competitions, which are based on an inferior RFP that attracts the wrong vendors and ultimately achieves poor results.

"RFPBlaster levels the playing field for medium sized organizations by providing quick, easy and cost-effective access to high quality RFPs," says Andy Akrouche, President of RFPBlaster. This allows our clients to engage in a dramatically improved competitive procurement process, reducing risk and resulting in better acquisition outcomes."

RFPBlaster RFPs are created by industry experts, backed by decades of experience and have been successfully used in real-world procurements. Typically it would take between 200-500 person-hours to produce a RFP of similar quality and content.

RFPBlaster offers several other advantages:

- RFPs include complete sets of evaluation criteria and weighted scores;

- RFPs include an advanced model to help successfully manage vendor/supplier relationships to deliver positive results;

- The content of each RFP can be tailored by clients to meet their specific needs; and

- Clients have direct access to expert procurement advisors to support their acquisition process.

RFPBlaster RFPs are continually updated to reflect current best practice and changing technologies. Presently RFPBlaster offers a range of IT-related RFPs from System Integration Services to Data Center and Operations Management Outsourcing. RFPs for other sectors are under development and will be available in the coming months.
