Privia -- A Great Way to Organize and Centralize the Proposal Management Process
Kommentare: My overall experience with Privia is positive! It provides a central, standard way to store proposal resposnes, and streamline the editing process. The stress level in writing proposals was exponentially better once we implemented Privia!
Vorteile: I like that Privia allows my company to have a centralized location for all proposal responses. The foldering system makes it easy to set up drafts, versions. and review copies. We never have to wonder the history of our response from first draft to final submissions. I also like the permissions function -- unless I give someone write permisssions, they cannot make changes to my document. It's frustrating to look a draft and see edits/additions/changes made...but not by me. I love that I can refer back to previous proposal responsdes via the library artchittecture to see how we addressed a requirement previously, With Privia, all writing, editing, and reviews are organized and take place in one setting. It helps us stay organized and ensure that our writing and review process is streamlined and effective.
Nachteile: The system takes training and practice to learn -- that learning curve can be steep! However, once they ins and outs of the system are mastered? It's simple as pie to use. The first few weeks are a lot of trial and error, I find, though.

Complete Bid, Capture, and Proposal Lifecycle Management Application
Kommentare: Privia is a Complete Bid, Capture and Proposal Lifecycle Management application that manages processes, automates the flow of deliverables and resolves interdependencies across your organization. It enables you to capture opportunity information, enter it into the Pipeline, Position your company, track Past Performance information, and manage Task Orders. You can communicate easily and efficiently with users inside and outside your organization. It also allows you to keep track of documents, processes, and activities that involve other users. Privia can help you identify and rank business opportunities based on a defined criteria. Pursuit decisions can be made based on policy and current information. It helps you increase proposal throughput without increasing staff.
Vorteile: The risks and costs to WIN federal business are increasing. Implementing industry best practices using proven tools and disciplines is essential for any size company. Deploying and managing an effective and efficient BD, Capture, and Proposal Management process cannot be done with SharePoint alone, although many companies have tried, and tried, and tried. The the only practical way to consistently WIN in the federal market place is to implement a solution like Privia.
Nachteile: Training is required.

Helpful and easy to use...once you've figured it out
Kommentare: Following the "it's wonderful once you've figured it out," maxim, I'd heartily recommend Privia as a tool, but also express my reservations with the user interface. It's true, though: Once you've figured out the interface it is very easy -- intuitive, even. Just not at first.
Vorteile: Privia is a very helpful collaboration tool for working on multi-part documents with a team. It has been extremely helpful in organizing and directing some larger-scale proposals, and I hope to see it used more frequently within our organization.
Nachteile: The GUI is not immediately intuitive, and visual menus offer little (since most functions require a right-click, and have no redundant menu options). When I first used Privia, I'd heard several times "it's easy once you've figured it out," and that holds true, but I believe some of the initial difficulty or confusion has hindered the adoption of the application.

We love Privia!
We would absolutely recommend Privia for proposal users and government contracting professionals.
What did we do before Privia? There were several versions of files on different servers, making it a nightmare to find the final submission of previously submitted proposals.
Vorteile: Privia has helped us organize all of our proposals into one streamlined, easy-to-use directory, as well as provides accurate tracking and reporting of all in-process proposals, and previously submitted proposals. We have also an extensive corporate library of templates, resumes, and past performances stored in Privia. The version control feature has eliminated any confusion of which is the master file on opportunites.
Nachteile: Are there any?

Kommentare: Highly recommended for companies interesting in automated the pursuit process from idetnification of an opportunity through proposal development and submission.
Vorteile: Out of the box precanned worklfows enable faster time to production. Modifying workflows, folders, etc is quick and easy allows faster time to roll out new pursuit workflows. Alerts and dash boarding, drillable reports make it a one stop shop.
Nachteile: Data base limitations on free fields. Reporting limitations, complexity (both pro and con). Programability..there are certain things you just cannot do to customize like add scirpts to a page. Cannot use directly out of the box without customization (complexity).

PRIVIA: A FORCE MULTIPLIER
Kommentare: Astrella Corporation unconditionally endorses Privia as the leader in government contracting lifecycle solutions.
Vorteile: I have been a Privia user--and fan--for years, which is why I sought to establish a corp-to-corp relationship with Privia shortly after establishing Astrella. I am proud of our alliance and gratified every time I see the "force multiplying" results that Privia provides to our clients--enabling them to BID MORE & WIN MORE!
Nachteile: None that we've ever experienced.

Kommentare: For what we are using it for, Privia is an excellent tool which I would recommend. We have yet to take advantage of all of the workflow capabilities.
Privia has been excellent for us in the following areas:
- version control
- data warehousing
- review and comment
Privia could be more elegant/user friendly in:
- modifying opportunitities as administrator (but not owner)
- clearing alerts en masse
- allowing co-ownership
- pop up help/suggestions

Nachteile: The number one deterrent is the license cost per seat.
