The Salentis Secret Sauce

“No matter the number of challenges you’ve faced, the roles you’ve had to play or work you’ve had to take on above and beyond what you were hired to do, you not only persevered, you excelled. I didn’t feel worthy to be in the room with such accomplished professionals.”

Proposal Manager

“Salentis worked to tight deadlines to provide multiple high quality reviews of our proposal throughout development. Salentis also provided excellent subject matter expertise related to operating in the Middle East, which provided instrumental in Camber being able to submit a high quality, accurate, and relevant proposal.”

Vice President, Business Development

“The word ‘brilliant’ doesn’t come close to describing what you have produced. I would need to grab a dictionary to find additional synonyms!”

Chief Executive Officer

“An amazing effort and a strong indicator of success through highly professional, smart, advanced, hard-working, team oriented “can do” support. I know we have a lot planned in 2016 and Salentis is an integral element to our success plans.”

Director

“What I appreciate most about Salentis is that you are damn hard workers and true team players…available at all hours…impressive! The quality of the product and ability to hit the ground running – get to the root of the problem(s), validate discriminators, and add value. You guys also bring business acumen to the bid…that is, you have context of the bigger business in mind, rather than just the bid writing.”

Analysis Quality Reviews Client Team Support Design

Using a structured approach, our capture and strategy specialists will help you understand the conditions for success.

  • Capture Strategy
  • Black Hat and Blue Team Reviews
  • Competitor Course of Action Analyses

We provide highly focused quality reviews, or Red Teams, by directing reviewers to answer a set of questions based on the evaluation criteria. In this way we gain greater insight into the extent to which the proposal is complete, compliant and compelling.

We have recognised the potential that Agile methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban have for better bid management and embedded them in our processes.

Salentis International is not a ‘body shop’, but we can help our clients fill gaps in bid teams, subject to availability. While they won’t bring the Salentis System processes and tools, they will bring skill, experience and a will to win.

  • Capture Strategists
  • Proposal Managers
  • Writers
  • Graphic Designers and Illustrators
  • Desktop Publishers
  • Subject Matter Experts
  • Procurement portal expertise (e.g., AWARD®, ADVANCE®)

Are you confident that your proposals stand out from your competitors’? We use design as a discriminator which sets our clients apart from the competition. We know that given two documents of equal merit, the one that is better designed, laid out to guide the evaluator and visibly more attractive will score more highly and be more memorable. Get in touch and we’ll show you the evidence.

Our proposals are designed from first principles and it is woven through all the sections that will be graded for quality; good design starts with the kick-off meeting and finishes with the award of the contract.
