In the age and efforts of a proposal shop, there has always been a disdainful thought of preparing the "Compliance Matrix"! What if I forget something? What if I misinterpret the RFP? And I can list a hundred "IFs" - and they would all be true.
This is a program that has been thought of more than a hundred times, maybe even a million times - IF ONLY … Well I can say this software has been living in my system "Things to do" file more than two years since I got back into the proposal game. It is a game, isn't it? And now the time has come to name this child - the E-Z Compliance Matrix Report Generator - may not be the loveliest name in the book- but you all know the child by many nicknames - so why not just call her "The Matrix Report". She is far from ugly, and she will definitely save you money on your proposal budgets.
Why E-Z Compliance Matrix?
The term "E-Z" is because the owner of the software - me (and my wife) owns the parent company - in which we process our billing - E-Z Stitches, Inc. - a commercial embroidery company. We also sell the E-Z Estimator - an embroidery production control software package. So, or is that sew - we kept the name tag - "E-Z". Need decorated apparel, go to www.ezstitches.com - thank you.
When will it do sections L and M?
Next year - first quarter of 2005. I'm very busy getting the 2005 version of the E-Z Estimator completed - along with writing proposals for my clients - hmmmm proposals, what a unique industry.
How are you able to parse a word document into an Excel file?
VERY nicely - that my friends is part of the magic of the software. People have tried it for years, and not too successfully. As I said, it's been done and now it is available for sale.
Does it pay for itself?
Where did the toons come from?
What about the output file?
What must be done with the Excel sheet?
What kind of Technical Support is available?
What about upgrades?
Are Enterprise Licenses available?
Thank you for the confidence to try something new and exciting. I'm sure you and your company will benefit many times over by using the E-Z Compliance Matrix Software.
