Software Tender Case Study

Background: A U.K. Service Provider

The objective: The development of a Facilities Management application in the Service sector.

Work undertaken: To write the brief for a software application to be used on a tablet format for field service personnel.

The RFP was issued to a number of companies qualified to design and build the app. The proposals were evaluated on the company's capabilities to deliver against the brief.

A short list of companies was drawn up and meetings conducted with the most promising technical proposals and bids.

In light of new technical data obtained during the process, the specification was modified to develop a more robust, field-friendly application. The process was brought in significantly under the originally planned capital budget.
