Shred your RFP and generate a Compliance Matrix

Create a Responsibility Matrix

  • Scan your documents for specific keywords
  • Generate a responsibility matrix, highlighting instances of those specific keywords broken down by team by team
  • Export to excel, add comments and distribute to team leads

Compare Documents

VisibleThread identifies differences between two versions of the same document. It tells you whether text has been ‘ADDED’, ‘MODIFIED’, ‘DELETED’, or is ‘IDENTICAL’.

  • Compare draft vs final versions of proposals & RFP revisions
  • Review differences side by side in Excel
  • Color-coded highlighting makes differences easy to spot

Acronym Checker

Theme Discovery

VisibleThread identifies and ranks the most common themes in a document and compares multiple documents for matching themes.

  • Identify the strongest themes within a document
  • Compare the themes of multiple documents to improve compliance and highlight gaps in your proposal
  • Ensure a consistent proposal even when working with submissions from multiple contributors

Concept Tracking

VisibleThread allows you to search documents for specific words or phrases. After setting up your unique search terms in custom dictionaries, you can then use those dictionaries to search one or more documents at the same time.

  • Search your document for language that is risky, loose, clichéd or simply non-compliant
  • Proposal Managers can affinity check multiple RFPs at once, speeding up the Bid/No-Bid decision process
