Exciting News From ProcurePro! 
Welcome to the January edition of ProcurePro’s “On the Button” newsletter.  It's a new year and a new opportunity to create a new future.  Like myself, I am sure many of you, are excited to move into a new year – welcome 2021!  I am hopeful that this year will bring great opportunity and for many recovery, from one of the most challenging years we have experienced in my lifetime.

In last month's newsletter we shared that we would have exciting news to announce early in 2021. I’m excited to share with you that ThryvX, which was first introduced to you in February of 2020 will be taking on a new and more prominent position in my life. Corette Miller, my business partner and CEO of newINITAITIVES HR, and I, have decided to combine our businesses under the ThryvX brand to offer the full breadth of our services to our clients.  This exciting merge under the ThryvX brand will be taking place in March.  

The newly merged company allows our respective customers to enjoy a truly integrated experience where they can obtain a wider range of services, beyond those currently being offered by ProcurePro and newINITIATIVES HR separately.  Under the ThryvX brand, we will continue to offer our current ProcurePro services; sourcing, project management, contract management, implementation and training.  We are excited to add content marketing and social media management to our services along with those currently offered under newINITIATIVES HR, including; recruiting, human resource management, development, health and safety training, compliance training,  leadership and cultural development.

ProcurePro - Did You Know? 

Did You Know ... 

Supplier evaluations is a critical step in the competitive bid process.

This is how you will score and scrutinize the supplier's solutions.  It is best practice to set up the evaluation matrix (how you will evaluate and score responses) in advance of your RFx closing date.  This ensures that the evaluation matrix is set up in an unbiased manner.  

It is also key to have all stakeholders review and approve the evaluation matrix to ensure everyone's in alignment with how the responses will be scored. 

It is also critical to have the appropriate subject matter experts evaluate sections of the RFx that pertain to their area of expertise.  For instance, do not ask your Finance team to evaluate the IT requirements. 

Evaluations can take place individually or as a group, but it is recommended that once all scoring has taken place that the entire team comes together for one final review, to ensure everyone agrees to the scoring and are in alignment for shortlisting and moving to the next stage.
