Great Decisions Emerge from a Great Process
Selecting the best vendors and solutions is challenging.
There are no good shortcuts to effective evaluations.
A great process supported by a powerful platform goes a long way.
Online Vendor Evaluations
Starting from your criteria or customized from one of our templates, we quickly stand up easy to use evaluation activities to support your procurements (whether you run them through DecisionDirector, or not.)
Of course, we work closely with your team, including your consultant, if you have one.
Evaluate multiple aspects from different perspectives
We handle all of the set-up, configuration, user support and reporting for collaborative evaluation activities such as:
- Proposal Review
- Response Analysis
- Pricing Review
- Product Demonstrations
- Security Review
- Reference Checks
- Site Visits
- Executive (or Summary) Review
- Legal/Contract Review
Sharing Evaluation Models and More with Your Peers
And, when we load your evaluation activities in DecisionDirector, you will have the option to share your approach and materials with your peers and colleagues at other institutions or organizations, and vice-versa.
Sharing Made Easy
How many times have you asked if someone had a evaluation materials, an RFP, or even terms and conditions that you could start from?
We make it easy to share valuable resources like these with only those whom you specify.
Powerful for Cohorts
The DecisionDirector Share Center is ideal for institutions and governments that tend to already share ideas, resources, and best practices. Associations, consortia, and systems are great examples.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do we have to host our RFP through DecisionDirector in order to use it to evaluate vendors?
No. You can use DecisionDirector to support your vendor evaluations regardless of how your RFP event was conducted. In fact, you can use DecisionDirector to support evaluations of any kind, even if there was no RFP at all.
Our staff is maxed out. Is there much of a learning curve or time requirement?
Not at all. We’ll conduct an overview of DecisionDirector for your team and show them how it works to support these types of projects. They’ll quickly “get it” and become excited about how to leverage it.
And, since we handle all of the administration, set-up, and support, your staffers will actually spend less time and effort on the non-productive aspects of running an RFP.

Our Position, Policies, and Practices
We are 100% vendor neutral.
We have no stake in, or benefit in anyway from, a selection outcome.
We never reveal vendor response data without permission from the vendor.
We do not claim ownership of any client, consultant, or vendor data entered into DecisionDirector.
We never sell or otherwise distribute any of the data entered into DecisionDirector.
We have many consulting partners who have integrated DecisionDirector into their planning and selection methodologies, and their baseline requirements and other information into the DecisionDirector database.
Clients are free to use our baseline library or that of their chosen consultant, or a combination of both.
Vendors may establish baseline requirements of their own in DecisionDirector, for clients and prospects that wish to start with those.
We do whatever we can to help clients, consultants, and vendors be successful in using and benefiting from DecisionDirector, but we never provide unfair advantage or share inside information about the projects we support.
We hold all conversations in full confidence and do not discuss or share sensitive or competitive information.
We are committed to creating and supporting the best practices that lead to the best possible outcomes, and therefore are always open to constructive criticisms and suggestions.
