In 1971 FedEx was launched with the slogan, “When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight,” and began a revolution in business communications. It’s easy now, 50 years later, to forget that there was a time when important business correspondence was routinely expected to take days, if not weeks, to be delivered. Today, that milestone seems as dated and quaint as phone cords and VHS tapes.
Now, instant communication is not only expected, it provides enormous advantages to companies that can harness the power of messaging to expedite their business processes. That’s why Vindow has introduced integrated Instant Messaging capability to their online RFP management and sourcing platform.
Vindow Instant Messages
are linked with both the recipient AND the specific RFP to which they’re related, so no message is ever misplaced or forgotten and conversation strings are retained intact. Users never again have to scramble for a misplaced email in the midst of complicated or protracted contract negotiations. It’s easy to get instant clarification on inquiries or to make informed decisions at any point throughout the procurement process and track your responses. Since all of your messaging is consolidated in one place, it’s simple to track relevant communications threads by event over time, providing organization and historical context for your messages. Vindow’s Instant Messaging features an intuitive user interface that makes it easy to implement and is totally secure.
Applied technology is at the heart of everything we do, Vindow is constantly developing ways to improve the user experience and expedite the RFP process. Instant Messaging is just the latest innovation from Vindow in response to feedback from users and suppliers seeking a centralized solution to streamline and organize the RFP process. Subscribing hoteliers can quickly and accurately respond to RFPs based upon a complete and thorough understanding of their clients’ needs. Client users get instant responses to their most pressing questions knowing that they are communicating with those empowered to make decisions regarding their RFP.
“When it absolutely, positively has to be right …and right now,” Vindow introduces the next revolution in RFP management.
