What’s changed in this version?
As well as bringing the software functional requirements up-to-date, the BI Software RFI/RFP Template has undergone a major upgrade to enhance its capability, and make it quicker and easier to use.
The main enhancements include:

Automatically calculated analyses within the Requirements Template include:
- Vendor Response Analysis - analyses how a vendor responds to your requirements - both as a count and as a percentage %.
- Scores Analysis - total and module scores for Average Score, Evaluated Weighted Score (WS), Target WS, Difference WS, Difference WS %. Identify whether a vendor meets your requirements in total and for each module.
- Cost Comparison - compares vendor purchase and SaaS costs over 3 and 5 years.
