Frequently asked questions about Axia’s RFI/RFP Templates

Q: Do you have country specific versions of your RFI/RFP Templates? A: Yes, our RFI/RFP Templates cover a number of specific countries as well as being appropriate for use in all countries. The RFI/RFP Templates 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 of your RFI/RFP Templates? A: The RFI/RFP Templates cover Accounting, Business Intelligence, CRM, HR and Payroll across all industries rather than addressing specific industry sectors. Should you have very specific industry requirements, this may be overcome by either you adding your specific 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 Accounting / HR / HR and Payroll – RFI/RFP Template to order – they each have Essentials and Professional versions – and both appear to be suitable for us? A: As a general rule, if your business is growing or you have more requirements, we would recommend the version which caters for the larger number of criteria ie the Professional version. However, should you have queries regarding your specific situation and require further advice, please email us at enquiry@axiatemplates.com 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, it’s not too late. Our RFI/RFP Templates are used within many stages of the software selection process – from the beginning through to the end. Some use it all the way through, some as a checklist to make sure they have included all their requirements – some even use it within the implementation stages to flesh out detailed requirements. 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, information and advice.

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, cover workflow, systems operations requirements, technology requirements, training, support and maintenance, and have full instructions and software selection tips. Please refer to the contents of each RFI/RFP Template for full details. Q: We already use a similar RFI/RFP tool – so 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 what you currently use. As our Templates are covered by our money-back guarantee, you lose nothing by checking it out! Q: We have multiple people working on our project, in different locations – do we need multiple RFI/RFP Template licences? A: No, only one licence is needed. The licence is by company, not by number of users. You may have any number of people working on it, with any number of copies, within your organisation. Q: Are there any restrictions on how we use the RFI/RFP Template? A: The RFI/RFP Template can be used anyway you like within your organisation with your software selection and implementation project.

View product licence for more details. Q: Are there consultant versions of the RFI/RFP Templates which can be used to support multiple clients / organisations? A: At present, there are no consultant RFI/RFP Template versions. Each Template is sold for a single company / organisation and it’s internal use only. Templates are protected by the Law of Copyright. Consultants who wish to use a Template for a number of clients should purchase additional copies or encourage each client to purchase their own copy.

Q: How many vendors can we send our RFI and RFP to (based on the RFI/RFP Template)? A: As many as you like - there are no limits. 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. Firstly, as all RFI/RFP Templates are fully amendable, you could add your specific requirements directly to your own copy. 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.
