 APMP Announces VisibleThread as a Silver-level Sponsor
Sponsorship Support Brings Best-in-Class Offerings to Proposal and Bid Profession

Washington, D.C., January 5, 2016 
– The Association of Proposal Management Professionals® (APMP®)
, the worldwide authority for professionals dedicated to the process of winning business through proposals, bids, capture, business development and presentations, announces that VisibleThread has signed on as a 2016 silver-level sponsor of the association. The sponsorship allows APMP to develop and refine resources that support the professional growth of its members by advancing the arts, sciences, and technologies of winning business.

"APMP relies on the support of its Sponsors and Corporate Members to take to the next level the service it provides to its members,” says Rick Harris, Executive Director, APMP. "VisibleThread’s pledge to being a silver-level sponsor demonstrates its commitment to advancing the proposal and bid profession, and we are grateful to walk shoulder-to-shoulder with world class companies such as VisibleThread, as we uphold our mission.”

VisibleThread, based in Baltimore, Maryland, develops software tools that save busy proposal teams months of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars. They do this by quickly automating multiple micro steps in the bid process that speed up the editing, compliance proofing, and  readability of proposals. Capture, contract and competitive Intelligence teams also leverage VisibleThread to quickly gain risk and intelligence insights.

"The VisibleThread Docs tool has become essential for bid teams that have to do increasingly more with less and is widely used by 7 of the top 10 federal contractors. For many contractors it has removed 71 days out of large proposal cycles,” says Fergal McGovern, chief executive officer and founder. "Small and mid -size contractors also gain tremendous efficiencies. We help them generate a compliance matrix or an acronym check in just three mouse clicks—a real business benefit, if they need to turn a bid around quickly. These features, alone, repeatedly save customers at least three to five days per bid.

VisibleThread’s products pay for themselves within three months and reduce on average 45 percent of time needed for proposal creation and 80 percent of time for contract evaluation. The products introduce a quality gate onto all proposals generated, by automatically spotting gaps or risks, help teams reach faster bid/no bid decisions, and ensure that everyone is aligned on the correct win themes for each bid. Win themes and bid/no bid criteria are easily defined in an intuitive dictionary checker that can parse all versions of the RFP and proposal.

VisibleThread’s 2016 silver-level sponsorship provides vast marketing and recognition opportunities for the company among APMP members, while supporting the overall operations of the association. APMP’s sponsorship program has been on a continuous upswing in recent years, thanks to significant membership growth and expansive member programs, events, and  resources.
