Recent G2 customer reviews on the Responsive platform include:

“Responsive is critical to my role as a Senior Proposal Manager. I use it daily. It seamlessly enables collaboration, project management, and a powerful content library to be leveraged in the development of responses to RFXs. It is a force-multiplier for managing multiple RFXs of widely varying depth and breadth.” – Jay N., Enterprise User

“We use [Responsive] to manage large RFP responses and security questionnaires. Its easy import features when customers provide structured requests (especially Excel sheets), makes managing and coordinating the responses across multiple people easy to do. Additionally, after doing a few responses, we quickly built up some standard Q&A content that has accelerated delivery.” – Tim L., MidMarket

“We migrated to Responsive (RFPIO) from a different proposal automation tool. [The former tool] was confusing, hard to navigate, and their support team could not resolve a critical issue we had for 5 months. It was extremely difficult to get SMEs to use the tool, so we ended up still operating using email and Teams. Once we switched to Responsive, it was a completely different experience. We have more SMEs happily using Responsive than ever before, people volunteering to be Content Managers in the library, and better collaboration within the tool that allows us to be more efficient and effective.” – Elizabeth B., MidMarket

“Responsive serves as an effective tool for streamlining and optimizing our organization’s workflow, particularly when it comes to responding to Requests for Proposals. Responsive offers a clear and defined purpose, along with intuitive features that help our progress toward achieving our goals. As we continue to refine our strategies and objectives, we are optimistic about Responsive’s role in our journey.” – Aliyah S., Small Business
