Taking aim at the eRFP process, Groupize
has introduced EmailBids. The small-meetings technology provider called EmailBids a "conversational commerce" tool that allows occasional meeting organizers to communicate with supplier hotels and share standardized bid information via email exchange rather than logging into a third-party RFP system.
Styled after collaboration tools like Basecamp and Slack, EmailBids sends email notifications to the meeting organizer's inbox as bids for a single piece of business accumulate. The notification shows new activity, aggregated data and dashboards that guide decision-making. The tool allows buyers and suppliers to attach pertinent proposals, menus and contractual documents, in addition to the standardized data fields.
