Capture and Proposal Management for Federal Government Contractors

 

Lohfeld Capture Proposal Management

The lifeblood of the Federal Contractor is capturing business opportunities and writing winning proposals. Many organizations have standard methodologies continuously perfected over years; yet, their capture and proposal management technology base lags behind.


CorasWorks’ Capture and Proposal Management solution sets a new standard. We give you an easy and effective way to manage your C&P portfolio and process top down and a rich and flexible set of capabilities for managing the details of proposal development. You can implement CorasWorks as a completely new system, integrate it with other supporting systems (such as IDIQ TOM, CRM, ERP, HR, and Contract Management) and/or use our solution to enhance and extend your existing proposal systems. With our flexible approach, you have many ways to up your game in capture and proposal work.

 

Overview

 

The CorasWorks Capture and Proposal Management v2.1 solution is a commercial off-the-shelf solution that runs on the Microsoft SharePoint platform.  It consists of three core modules:

  • Capture and Proposal Management Center – Where you manage the pipeline of opportunities through the lifecycle

  • Proposal Working Sites – Where the work gets done for both the capture and proposal processes

  • Proposal Asset Library – Central management of proposal resources, such as past performance, forms, policies, boilerplate, and graphics that are then accessible across the system.

With C&P v2.1 you have a comprehensive, integrated solution that allows you to get started quickly. And, it is unusually flexible. It is easy to custom tailor the solution to your precise needs. Or, you can enhance and extend the solution to keep you ahead of the competition. So, you now have the benefit of an affordable COTS solution on an open platform that gives you the freedom to innovate how you work.
