PHOENIX, AZ - June 2, 2022 – Prevalent, Inc., the company that takes the pain out of third-party risk management (TPRM), today introduced RFx Essentials, a SaaS solution that centralizes and automates the distribution, comparison and management of requests for proposals (RFPs) and requests for information (RFIs). RFx Essentials makes it easy for procurement teams to not only select solutions and vendors that meet their organization’s functionality requirements, but also take a critical first step in managing risk throughout the third-party lifecycle with built-in vendor intelligence.
“There are several reasons why managing the RFP process can be one of the most frustrating and time-consuming parts of vendor management,” stated Alastair Parr, senior vice president of global products and services for Prevalent, Inc. “Not only is it an extremely manual process for under-resourced procurement teams, but selecting a vendor that doesn’t match their risk requirements can have enormous security and business consequences. RFx Essentials provides organizations with an automated solution that encompasses important risk intelligence, leading to more informed vendor decisions.”
Many organizations are required to conduct fair and objective evaluations of vendor solutions. However, most companies utilize manual RFx evaluation processes, which are complex and time-consuming. From keeping track of requirements and communicating with stakeholders to conducting due diligence and evaluating options, spreadsheet-based RFx processes lack automation, consistency and enterprise visibility which can lengthen purchasing cycles and introduce risk.
RFx Essentials eliminates time-intensive manual processes, providing procurement teams with a single automated platform to evaluate and select solutions and vendors that meet an organization’s needs while automatically moving selected vendors into contracting. With RFx Essentials, organizations:
RFx Essentials provides automation and intelligence for the first step in the third-party lifecycle, and natively integrates with the Prevalent Third-Party Risk Management Platform. For additional information, please read the latest Prevalent blog, download a white paper or sign up for a demo.
