EasyPQQ Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about EasyPQQ's features:

Patrick Hebbert

Generally an easy and convenient way of writing tenders let down by several annoying bugs.

2017-05-12

It has also been a really useful way of tracking bids - particular with the visual reporting on the dashboard. The ability to have all bids and bidding information in one place has been the greatest benefit to us.

Pros

- Clear layout - Easy to use - Can customise the main menu - Great way to store stock answers/general company information - Visual reporting feature - Having multiple users makes it easy to divide up bid work between staff - Branding documents is easy - Search All feature saves vast amounts of time when searching for information - Collateral feature is really useful for storing key documents - Support service always very quick to sort out any reported issues

Cons

- Text editor can be very buggy - have lost entire answers before - Exporting - often moves bullets points when exporting to word and tables often have to be redrawn on word because of how they appear on the page - Sometimes won't allow use to copy and paste images in to the text box - When copying and pasting text we're able to format the text (e.g. not make it bold) - Search All feature doesn't search similar phrases - need to search word for word

Significant improvements have been made with additional functionality too (including improved importing of images). However, your comments have been taken on board and will be reviewed at the end of May when planning our 6 monthly development programme.

The system is good value for money

2017-05-17

Customer relationship management is much more efficient than the previous system we worked with

Pros

Easy PQQ is an effective tool to help the business develop and track leads and business relationships 4.

Cons

there is an element of rigidity in the reporting - so in order to set up a contact, a specific job title must be entered - which might be a one off and then unless you recall that specific title the name would not come up in reporting.

Thank you very much for posting your review. Regarding the 'niggle', would you mind contacting either Cara Smith or Jeremy Gilbert to get a better idea of what you are referring to. We're always happy to take on suggestions for improvement - particularly if it makes the software flexible and adaptable to clients' needs as far as possible.
I believe following a phone call the issue has been resolved. The problem encountered had nothing to do with EasyPQQ but another software product.

Mark Speller

User friendly system, saves time& allows us to produce professional tender submissions

2017-05-12

Being able to find previous answers and monitor performance of our bid submissions.

Pros

Ease of finding previous answers from the database saves considerable time.

Cons

When searing for previous answers, it will pick up every word associated with your search, and some of the ones at the beginning of the results don't have enough of a relevance to what you are searching for.

Thank you very much for posting your review. Could I suggest that when searching using a number of words, you please include the words in "speech marks" so that a phrase is searched, not individual words. This should solve the relevance problem.

Gareth Meredith

A good system, but sometimes a little frustrating.

2017-05-12

Primarily used to search previous answers, but we are working to utilise more features.

Pros

Search engine around previous answers is a great feature, I just wish it had the option for more detailed metadata.

Cons

Also the management of users is pretty restricted, whereby you can't move groups of users to different permission sets but instead you have to do it one by one.

Excellent product to use, easy to use, and a fantastic team to work with!

2017-05-15

It now makes my completion of a PQQ so much quicker and easier.

Pros

The convenience of all works being logged on one database with a one touch search for data that has been uploaded and stored for a quicker and more effective way to product a document.

Cons

That questions previously answered are not dated in chronological order when undertaking a search. I would like to see the most recently answered questions at the top of the list when searching for a previously answered question.

Laura Rogers

A user friendly piece of software built by bid managers for bid managers.

2017-05-09

Very easy to use once you're up and running, and really well supported by the team at Propeller.

Pros

The process of importing the original bid document and using this to create the structure for the response is a great time saver and reduces the frequency of errors that might otherwise occur (for example, if you were keying in each question).

Cons

I haven't spent a great deal of time on this element of the document creation process, so it could come down to practice makes perfect!

Easy PQQ software has dramatically reduced time spent drafting and completing bid submissions.

2017-05-08

Saves a massive amount of time; enabling us to complete more submissions within a limited timescale.

Pros

The search function and additional details at New Bid stage that allow us to provide portal information and passwords.

Cons

The new Word Editor, as you cannot copy and paste answers from the search function and have to type out every word individually.

It is easy to use and very useful particularly with documents that require quick turnaround.

2017-05-08

A good way of organising your bid library and creating quick bid responses

Pros

Search tool; collateral; model answers (which I know is a feature in the process of further improvement); ease with which you can set up documents etc.

Cons

Inability to modify tables inside the editor (quite constrained in the overall format adjustment capabilities within the editor - which is understandable as one should not expect an all singing all dancing word application)

Thank you very much for posting your review. Regarding your comments on overall format adjustments within editor, are you referring to the Classic Text Editor, or the newly released one? In many ways the new Text Editor is more 'all singing, all dancing' offering additional functionality not available in the original programming. Please contact either Cara Smith or Jeremy Gilbert should you require any assistance in this regard.

Even for a complete novice, Easy PQQ makes it a breeze to put Bids together.

2017-05-08

Makes our jobs so much easier with the search function - the whole team uses it on a daily basis.

Pros

The search function is by far the most handy tool for us to quickly find answers we have used before.

Cons

It is not as good as Microsoft Word when it comes to wrapping text around images at the moment, though this may change with the new Word Editor which we are yet to try out properly.

This software has increased our companies productivity and is fundamental to our future success.

2017-05-12

By having a central database of responses that have been drafted by several colleagues, it has opened my eyes to alternative methods of responding to client demands and has increased my knowledge of going works and innovations being developed by the company.

Pros

The notification system for identifying when certs etc are about to expire is also a very helpful tool ensuring that only up to date information is provided to clients and prevents the embarrassment of providing expired information

Pros

Cons

Navigation isn't obvious, despite having used for a few months now, I still struggle to find my way around the website. The CV and case study layout doesnt look great. Cant insert a project photo on the front page of the document. Copy and pasting text from outside of software ends up with wrong formatting.

Being able to retrieve previous answers to bids and the ability to store documents in collateral.

Pros

Being able to store all standard certificates and accreditations in one place and seeing when they expire. Also the traffic light system is great to see stages of a bid and answer statuses.

2017-05-14

as described in the review

Pros

Reminds you of any certificates that are about to run out of date and are out of date. Have muti used the system for Service Level Agreement for my business rather than just PQQ's.

Cons

Find it difficult to copy and paste tables onto the system and as I use the system for pricing documents this would potentially save me time, however I have now set up a master template so have created a shortcut for this issue.

2017-05-12

The storage of all previous bids.

Pros

It allows us to manage the process efficiently - we can see where people are with responses and also the fact that the answers are stored in of great use to us for future submissions.

Cons

The inserting of pictures can be very time consuming - would be much easier if you could cut and paste the images in rather than have to upload them and insert them.
