Qorus Breeze Proposals is definitely making a real difference in our proposal management processes, and our lives are easier for it.

Qorus Software, provider of document automation solutions for Microsoft Office and Microsoft SharePoint, announced today that Hart Security, an international risk management company, have successfully implemented the company’s proposal automation and RFP collaboration software, Qorus Breeze Proposals, for the creation of their sales proposals and their response documents to RFPs (Request for Proposal).

Qorus Breeze Proposals is Qorus Software’s document automation and collaboration solution designed to meet the specific requirements of bid and proposal managers and sales teams.

Built on the company’s flagship document automation platform for SharePoint, Qorus DocGeneration, Qorus Breeze Proposals provides authoring and collaboration functionality via end-users’ Microsoft Office environment, as well as bid and proposal management specific functionality via an easy-to-use web interface. Qorus Breeze Proposals works with Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and integrates with leading CRM systems and other enterprise systems to dynamically import live data and content into sales templates.

“We have implemented Qorus Breeze Proposals to integrate our various divisions under one bid and proposal management process,” says Stuart Johnson, Hart Security Business Development Director. “We chose Qorus Breeze Proposals, because it offers the functionality we need to easily collaborate on RFP responses across geographies and divisions.”

Built-in bid and proposal management features include RFP completion tracking, a sales content library, an innovative content “shopping basket” for building proposals, proposal creation wizards, and RFP section allocation. Bid and Proposal Managers are able to allocate sections within an RFP document to various contributors around the world by simply emailing them a link via Qorus Breeze Proposals to their relevant section on an RFP document. This feature enables contributors to all work on the same version of a document remotely at the same time.

“Qorus Breeze Proposals also allows our multiple team members to work simultaneously on a single document, significantly reducing need for emails and version control of documents,” continues Johnson. “It also allows us to bring all our bidding and marketing material into one, easy to use content library.”

“Qorus Breeze Proposals’ RFP collaboration features are a great fit for the requirements of globally dispersed bid and proposal management teams like Hart Security,” says Qorus Software CEO, Ray Meiring. “Our features dramatically reduce the hassle of emailing documents and tracking documents and contributions for large bid teams. They simply make life a lot easier for bid managers and improve the overall quality of their proposals.”

“RFPs are being responded to far quicker than before and the collaborative features in Qorus enable our staff to easily contribute to proposals from wherever they may be in the world. Qorus is so easy and effective that we produced our first two live bids during the training session, both of which we went on to win. Qorus Breeze Proposals is definitely making a real difference in our proposal management processes, and our lives are easier for it,” concludes Johnson.
