HERNDON, Va., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Privia, the industry-leading capture and proposal management solution in the government contractor market, announced today that smart phones and tablets have joined their integrated suite of capture and proposal management-specific tools. With their all new Privia for Mobile, content collaboration is now in the palm of your hand. And it will cut your proposal team's review time in half.
Everyone carries a smart phone these days. With the growth of the distributed workforce, and with remote work on the rise, they have become an integral part of proposal management infrastructure. Taking their cue from the client community, a cross-section of federal, state and local, commercial, IT, health and science contractors, Privia has delivered content collaboration specifically designed for virtual proposal teams.
"Reviews are the number one time-consuming step in the process," said Jay McConville, President and CEO of Privia, "yet they are critical; they provide feedback that guides your team through revisions that strengthen your proposal. When teams don't have to wait for reviews, they have more time to focus on quality, and that is a competitive edge."
Centralized, online, collaborative reviews have long been a big part of what makes Privia unique in the industry, and it garners top marks from clients. Reviewers simply visit a document online, comment and reply, synchronously or asynchronous, and quickly come to consensus. Proposal managers skip the review document merge step and teams avoid the miscommunication and version control issues that arise with email.
In June, Privia released Web Commenting, their all new real-time content collaboration tool that eliminates the software download for contributors, easing deployment and maintenance. Now, with Privia for Mobile, teams can review real-time from their smart phone or tablet.
"I was on the road a while ago," explained Jay, "and my team was waiting for my feedback on a proposal. With Privia for Mobile, all I needed was my phone. From a geographically separated team perspective, that eliminates delays and gives the team back some of their time."
A number of new, time-saving features are included; toggling between document versions during reviews for greater clarity, color-coding reviews for greater visibility, and filtering and prioritizing feedback before the team takes action for a more focused, quality revision that keeps the team on schedule. Something the team previewed at the 2020 Privia Virtual User Conference on October 15th.
"According to a recent Gallup study," continued Mr. McConville, "37% of US workers are part of the virtual workforce, and the numbers are expected to grow significantly. This reality has been growing for a while, and isn't about teammates working from home on Friday's or temporarily. Successful organizations want access to the experts wherever they work. Remote is the future of work."
