Pros
My overall experience has been outstanding, and I have been able to deliver quality documents to a variety of clients in less time, saving them money.

VO

Valerie O.

The system is speedy, and technical support is fantastic. The software produces nice excel outputs that are easy to manipulate, and I like that the user may upload as many files and folders necessary.

I love the "new" dashboard as you have click only to do what you need/want to do. Everything about VT is wonderful, time-saving, and FUN.

Cons
I get a little lost in all of the available features, but that's more of my own problem in not taking time to better understand the tools available.

SM

Sarah M.

We have no pre-post statistics to offer, but we know we've cut as many as 4-5 days off preparation time using all of the different product features.

You have to know who in your organization does what - they're used to doing things the hard & slow way.

Provides significant capability to quickly identify actionable information across many documents.

Reviewed 4 years ago

What used to take hours and days of reading, tagging and extracting key / actionable information from solicitation packages now takes us just seconds or minutes. As a user for about 2 years, it is obvious that the VisibleThread team continues to release new features and improve the others at a good pace. To speed up proposal reviews and improvements - we do this using the concept tracking features...

Pros

This is an experts' product that provides so many useful tools, that there is no way I can even begin to address them all in the word limit this survey allows. We continually come up with new methods to automate portions of our analytical and document preparation work with VisibleThread. We are a bid /proposal management firm supporting customers on over 100 proposal projects each year across a wide...

Proposal Manager's helper

Reviewed 10 months ago

We have it set up on an internal computer so it's available for commercial and government proposals. Our team uses it a lot.

Pros

I use Visible Thread a lot for building acronym lists. It cuts the time down significantly by showing me what is spelled out and what isn't, where it is 1st used in the text and not spelled out, duplicates, etc. I can download a report, fix the document and create the first past list. I also provide reports to authors to improve writing such as passive and long sentences.

Cons

It doesn't always catch the acronyms when they are not capitalized when spelled out which we do a lot so not to interrupt our readers concentration and retention.

Shredding documents in minutes!

Reviewed 2 months ago

VisibleThread is a versatile tool that meets the needs of our company. It has helped RFP turnaround time as well as improved our proposal content.

Pros

I use visible thread to shred all incoming RFPs/RFIs. It cuts time from hours sometimes days to minutes. The interface is easy to use and very straight forward. I like the fact you can choose key words to dissect your RFP which helps eliminate user error. Dictionaries is a feature any RFP tool should implement. While shredding the document it also helps provide assignments to one's responsibility matrix. The support team is at your fingertips. They provide video tutorials, quarterly demos of features one might not know about, and training sessions if needed.

Cons

No central repository for responses like some other cloud based companies offer. I would like the capability of creating a template or customizing the output of the responsibility/compliance matrix. I currently have to format it in a way our internal team is accustomed to reading compliance/responsibility matrices. Lastly, there should be a way to remind admins of any updates to the software, unless one is proactive and reaches out to VT, there is no way of knowing if you're running on the latest and greatest version.

Great Vision

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The software user interface is easy to navigate and use. The features and capabilities appear robust without being overly complicated to review like other comparative software.

Cons

It takes the vision; it requires multiple customized solutions which I believe turns many users away from actively exercising the software to its full potential. More out of the box dictionary starters or external support in establishing custom solutions to meet the needs of the various users would help initial roll out and active continued use over time.

VT Docs helps us work smarter, not harder!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Our Bid Team has been using Visible Thread for around 6 months now. It has been an excellent tool in improving the quality and internal compliance checks on our tender responses. For small proposals we have been using functions such as the acronym checker, which has led to our teams being more mindful of this in their writing. On major proposals we have used concept tracking as a tool for interrogating...

Pros

VT Docs has a fantastic user interface, it is easy on the eye, easy to navigate and intuitive to use. The support team have been invaluable, with tech-gurus readily available for one-to-one coaching when needed as well as ongoing support from the sales team on new tips and tricks. There is also a library of videos and documents to facilitate learning the full functionality. The outputs such as annotated word files and excel reports are incredibly easy to use and incorporate into our bids process. As a Bid Manager, I find this tool takes a lot of stress and time out of combing through large volumes of both internal and client documentation.

Cons

Some of the terminology used for given functions e.g. discovery and concept tracking are not immediately intuitive. It does take some time to get used to using those terms but once you get the hang of it, it's fine. The support team are always on hand to help with reminders and coaching along the way.
