Shankar says. RFPIO was recognized by Growjo as the seventh fastest growing company in Portland, Oregon. In addition, the Tech Tribune identified RFPIO as one of its “2019 Best Startups in Oregon”.

RFPIO is also rapidly expanding its workforce and expects to triple its employee base in 2019 alone. Keeping up with that level of growth has meant moving offices six times in less than three years. Most recently, the firm moved to larger offices in Beaverton, Oregon and Coimbatore, India to accommodate employee growth.

And all indications are that the company’s growth trajectory is likely to continue. A recent survey of sales professionals found that 84 percent of companies are still using manual processes for RFP and questionnaire responses. Responding to RFPs and questionnaires can be challenging and inefficient for organizations of all sizes. Information is commonly spread across disconnected systems, and stakeholders don’t have a central place to collaborate and manage progress, or a way to connect the sales applications they’re already using – all problems solved by the RFPIO platform. Moreover, customers are reporting impressive returns from their investment in RFPIO’s software.

Gavin O’Donaghue of Cision PR Newswire reports: “We were able to save over 1,000 hours in the first five months by designing and building a customized, scalable and repeatable process for handling RFPs and IT security questionnaire responses.”

To make sure that the company’s team remains strong and energized to keep up with customer demand, RFPIO’s leadership team always stresses the importance of work/life balance and spending off-time doing meaningful things. The team participates in quarterly philanthropy activities and never misses out on a chance to do something fun together (for example, axe throwing was the latest team event).

“I couldn’t be prouder of where RFPIO is today. We have an incredible team with a positive, team-oriented energy that shares a passion for our technology, services, and customer success,” says Shankar. “I’m excited to see what the future holds for RFPIO. We’re dedicated to offering a leading-edge solution that keeps our customers delighted.”

Since we started using RFPIO, we’ve been able to reduce that cost so significantly that we estimate our return on investment is close to 2,000%.
