Portland, OR, August 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- RFPIO, a cloud-based software company for managing RFP responses, announced the addition of two new advisors. Raghu Raghavan, Founder of Act-On Software, and Nitin Rai, Managing Director of Elevate Capital and President of TiE Oregon, will join the team guiding the tech startup during the product’s first year in the market.
RFPIO provides robust RFP (Request for Proposal) management software to businesses, helping them save valuable time and resources by automating and streamlining the inefficient process that is commonplace in RFP management.
“RFPIO is solving a real problem in the proposal management process,” said Raghavan. “The product is superior, because it is designed with the user in mind, offering advanced capabilities that are easy for any company to adopt.”
With offices located in both Beaverton and Coimbatore, India, the RFPIO team is a living representation of the success that can happen cross-culturally. Being a minority-owned business, the company is changing the way people do business far beyond the RFP management software they have created.
“Elevate Capital strives to help early stage startups in the Pacific Northwest, with a strong focus on minority-owned businesses,” said Rai. “RFPIO not only met those requirements, they are delivering a valuable product that has a bright future.”
Raghavan and Rai will join RFPIO’s two other advisors, Bob Dunne of BFD Consulting and Jim Fowler of Owler, who are both well-respected influencers in the B2B software landscape.
“I am very pleased to bring these two seasoned entrepreneurs and investors to our advisory board,” said Ganesh Shankar, Co-Founder and CEO of RFPIO. “This new partnership brings a wealth of expertise to help guide RFPIO to greater success.”
RFPIO’s cloud-based RFP software is a response management solution that eliminates the friction often associated with responding to Request for Proposals (RFPs). Through a no-nonsense set-up, simple and intuitive user interface, and robust integrations with Salesforce and Slack, RFPIO's response automation technology empowers customers with a streamlined process, so they can focus on what matters most for their business.
