STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TPI, an Information Services Group company (Nasdaq: III) and the largest sourcing data and advisory firm in the world, today announced a new Web-based information repository that aggregates up-to-date information on service provider capabilities to help sourcing clients identify the most appropriate providers for their needs.
The new tool, called DynamicRFI, will provide clients with ready access to match their service needs with robust information on key buying criteria such as service provider geographic footprint, services provided, and depth of experience with other clients in the same industry. On-demand access to the data repository will help clients make more informed qualification decisions without the labor-intensive process of distributing and analyzing their own request-for-information ("RFI").
"In an industry that is constantly changing through mergers and acquisitions, technology developments and dynamic client requirements, we believe that efficiently and effectively gathering, organizing and refreshing service provider capability information is critical to providing the knowledge-based insights our industry demands," said Kimberly Fey, Director of Sourcing Industry Relations, TPI.
DynamicRFI utilizes a Cloud-based application that allows service providers to manage their company information in real time through a secure and auditable Web portal, giving them a more effective mechanism to communicate their capabilities and reducing costs that are often incurred fulfilling multiple data requests. The tool enables clients to access up-to-date, fact-based comparative information on service providers, spanning the gamut from small, niche providers to multinational corporations.
"The development of DynamicRFI is the latest example of demonstrated TPI leadership in the sourcing industry by creating the most robust database of service provider capabilities information to improve the efficiency of the marketplace for both buyers and service providers," said Michael P. Connors, Chairman and CEO of ISG.
TPI will pilot this new technology in the Business Process Services (BPS) market and looks to expand across all service lines throughout 2011.
