Deeper understanding of business outcomes. Although an RFP will take some time to put together, companies are likely to come out with a better understanding of their product from a business perspective. With a clearly thought-out and well-developed project, companies can successfully communicate their needs with potential development partners. 

Saving valuable time. Putting together a detailed RFP saves time in the long run, as it encourages teams to discuss all the key areas of the project and make necessary decisions regarding the product. For companies that may struggle to gather complete project information, Softjourn offers consulting services to ensure that there are no information gaps that might turn into bigger problems during development. 

Higher accuracy of project estimates. With a standardized RFP for software development, it becomes easier to explain projects to vendors and receive well-informed project estimates. And from a vendor’s perspective, understanding how many customers a business has and the state of their product can help create customized offers that will likely strike the right chord. 

Overall, the RFP template document provides a context that vendors can use to provide a more accurate timeframe, project scope, price range, and use—to generate tailor-made offers.
