The RFP Success Show™ Podcast: Proposal Collaboration and Efficiency

Herndon, VA – August 7, 2019. Privia, the industry-leading capture and proposal management solution in the government contractor market, is pleased to announce the release of a podcast interview with The RFP Success™ Show, hosted by proposal veteran, Founder and CEO, Lisa Rehurek. Jay McConville, Privia President and CEO, talked about the top challenges facing today’s proposal teams and how Privia confronts those challenges by focusing on team collaboration and efficiency.

“At Privia, we believe winning capture and proposal management is all about collaboration,” said Mr. McConville, “Because the more effectively your team collaborates, the more efficiently you operate. And the more time you save to invest in the quality that evaluators crave.”

In fact, a recent survey by Strategic Proposals, the #1 approved APMP training organization, demonstrates just what organizations and their proposal evaluators think about proposal quality. This survey of buyers revealed that “over 40% of bidders should be ashamed of the quality of their proposals.” The study clearly showed that meeting the deadline with a generic response is simply not enough to win new work.

Privia’s philosophy is simple; give your proposal team a secure, centralized and easy-to-use platform to access content, expertise, experts, and partners and your team will collaborate, anytime, anywhere, for the win. Experience shows that it takes a collaborative team to define and write to strategy while you clearly and concisely demonstrate the benefits of your solution over the competition. And it takes a collaborative team to pull it all together, ensure compliance and present your bid in the best light.

Listen now for Jay’s insights around the six major components of the proposal management process and learn how Privia is creating a secure, accessible, and integrated capture, content and proposal management virtual environment for RFP success!
