It’s easy to shop price. When you’re soliciting proposals for professional service; however, the objective is to shop value. Below, we’ll use the example of custom software development to illustrate the difference between price and value. You’ll see why it’s important to shop both.
Value Exceeds Cost
For custom software development, little matters more than receiving a solution that fits. If this weren’t true, competitive businesses would purchase packaged applications and save themselves time and money.
Armed with the right information, competent developers propose solutions that increase business efficiencies and decrease business expenses. They do this by proposing solutions that fit the business needs. The result of the customization is that the developed solution becomes more valuable than its cost.
Our RFP Writing Service
If you’ve never written an RFP, you’ll quickly discover how easy it is to solicit little more than price. Consider the RFP that requests “1, 2 and 3.” For fear of being excluded from the solicitation process, vendors will propose only what the RFP requests. The result is that every response proposes “1, 2 and 3.” As the buyer, you’re relegated to price shopping.
Here’s where an experienced RFP writer can make a difference. Our writers gather the right information and leave room for vendors to add value. When they do, price becomes less significant. Consider the following two custom software solutions:
- A $125,000 software application that fixes the identified problem. OR
- A $130,000 software application that fixes the identified problem. This solution also:
a. automates inventory tracking
b. solves a document management problem
c. eliminates the need for paper and paper storage
d. can be inexpensively expanded to meet next year’s goals
e. provides a shorter ROI
For many organizations, the second solution is most attractive. This is true even though it’s more expensive.
