Kick off the summer with the Chesapeake Chapter’s Webinar on Automation Support for Proposal Development. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 25 at 1:00 pm EDT.

With limited resources, severe time constraints, and a largely manual process, proposal teams are constantly looking for process improvement opportunities. Natural-language processing (NLP) technology has evolved rapidly over the last few years. The technology has driven the development of software tools that effectively and efficiently automate much of the compliance and content review activities within the proposal development process.

·       Shred RFPs

 ·       Generate Compliance Matrices

·       Compare Proposal Revisions

·       Create Instant Acronym Lists

·       Align Win Themes, and

·       Support Review Teams

The webinar will provide a demonstration of how software tools, leveraging NLP, can improve your company’s proposals.  We will have a panel of tool users and support providers to answer questions. More information to follow.
