Hamilton, OH (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
The Hamilton Mill is adding another new client to their growing startup community. RespondBy is a software development firm that creates tools to assist authors and responders of proposals. RespondBy is the latest technology company to sign with “The Mill” and will join kW River Hydroelectric and Perceptive Devices, among others. “We are extremely excited to welcome RespondBy,” says Operations Director, Antony Seppi, “again, they fit the new vision and mission of The Hamilton Mill – technologies and solutions that have high growth potential and are innovative in their approach to addressing customer needs – they will add significant value to the regional ecosystem.”
RespondBy is developing a web-based solution that caters to two potential sets of customers – proposal creators and proposal responders. For those entities that create bid requirements and criteria, the RespondBy solution will simplify the authoring of a document and management of the entire bidding process from creation all the way through distribution and collection. In addition, the final evaluation of incoming proposals will be simplified, more objective and less prone to selection bias.
For those entities that respond to requests for proposals, the RespondBy solution enables reuse of successful content and allows them to focus their bid search and corresponding response in a more efficient manner. Responses can be collaborative and targeted making the most out of time invested. Both authors and responders will benefit from robust analytics that drive improvements in responding and better decision making in sourcing. Potential clients include government, non-profits, and any organization that is required to go out to bid for projects.
Charles Shroder, CEO of RespondBy, sees the value in teaming up with an organization such as The Mill. “I am extremely pleased to have RespondBy as part of The Hamilton Mill community and feel it’s the right place and the right time for the company. Our application is intended to advance the way the sourcing industry works today by taking it out of email, word processing and mailing multiple copies of paper documents. It is a simple yet effective solution and I’m confident that being part of The Mill will help us take our solution to organizations who will find great value in its use."
RespondBy is in the process of selecting customers and organizations that are interested in testing and evaluating the solution. For more information on RespondBy go to http://www.respondby.com.
