PRODUCT QUESTIONS

Q Do you have country specific versions? A: Yes, our RFI/RFP Templates cover a number of specific countries as well as being appropriate for use in all countries. They are based on UK and general system requirements. In addition, the Accounting, HR and Payroll RFI/RFP Templates also cover USA and Canadian requirements. Q: Do you have industry specific versions? A: The RFI/RFP Templates cover Accounting, Business Intelligence, CRM, HR and Payroll across all industries rather than addressing particular industry sectors. Should you have very specific requirements, this may be overcome by either you adding your requirements directly to your own copy, or us working with you (on a chargeable basis) to help you build your specification. Q: I am unsure which version RFI/RFP Template to order – Accounting, HR and HR Payroll each have Essentials and Professional versions – and both appear to be suitable for me? A: As a general rule, if your business is growing or you have more requirements, we recommend the version which caters for the larger number of criteria ie the Professional version. However, should you have queries regarding your specific situation, please email us at info@axia-consulting.co.uk Q: Our software selection process has started and we’re already talking to vendors – have we left it too late to use a RFI/RFP Template? A: No. Our RFI/RFP Templates are used within many stages of the software selection process – from the very beginning, through to beyond selection and into the implementation stages. It’s rarely too late to use a RFI/RFP Template. Q: How impartial are your RFI/RFP Templates? A: Axia’s RFI/RFP Templates are completely impartial. Axia does not operate a referral service and we do not receive any payment from any software vendor. We only provide impartial tools and advice. Q: How accurate is the information in your RFI/RFP Templates? A: We make every effort to make sure the information in our Templates is accurate, by carrying out careful and meticulous research and checking. Q: Are the RFI/RFP Templates just a list of software features? A: The RFI/RFP Templates are much more than just a list of software features. They include ready-to- use RFI’s, RFP’s, Business Requirements Analysis, Requirements Specification, Instructions and Software Selection Tips. These cover the whole system and include requirements for systems operations, technology, training, support and maintenance. Q: We already use a similar RFI/RFP tool – why should we consider an Axia Template? A: It’s possible that an Axia Template may be more detailed or more relevant to your needs than the one you currently use. As our Templates are covered by a money-back guarantee, you lose nothing by checking it out! Q: We have one or more software product areas that we are interested in, which are not covered by your RFI/RFP Templates. Is there any way we can add them? A: Yes, there are two ways new software product areas can be added to our RFI/RFP Templates. You could either add your specific requirements directly to your own copy. Or, alternatively, we could work with you (on a chargeable basis) and research the software (that you are interested in) and add these areas to your requirements and our future RFI/RFP Template releases.
