Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a company who needed to write a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new HRIS.
Those were the days of on-premise systems where the likelihood of customization was high and vendors competed primarily on the basis of functionality. Clients and consultants toiled mightily to create endless lists of features that were deemed required, from the most basic new hire data to many complex and unique processes. In turn, vendors hired people whose full-time job was to respond to RFPs, which mostly consisted of putting an ‘X’ in the “Yes” box for each requirement whether it was completely true or not.
The whole process was time-consuming and labor-intensive, generally taking months to compose, distribute, collect, validate, analyze, synthesize, and review the final responses. At the end of this herculean feat, few companies actually had a better idea of which products to pursue – and even if they did, the process did not narrow the field sufficiently to make the whole exercise worthwhile.
