With the right processes, skillsets, and experience, Metre offers your organization an opportunity to deliver the highest quality proposal with the least amount of drama.
Process: Our proprietary processes are rooted in the principles of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) and are proven effective every time. While no project is exactly alike, we have carefully crafted and honed our processes over the last 20+ years and we know works and what does not work. We manage the entire project lifecycle including pre-RFP activities, strategy development, proposal development, production, and finalist preparation.
People: We provide the proposal industry’s top experts in win strategy development, interviewing and writing, project management, editing, graphic design, desktop publishing, and production. Metre consultants have 15 or more years of experience developing proposals
in the healthcare industry.
“Metre project managed a major proposal process that had very stringent requirements, deadlines and conditions. Working with Metre gave our team confidence that all of the details of our project would be taken care of, all of the i’s dotted and all of the t’s crossed and allowed us to focus on technical proposal content.”
Susan Murray, health care and employee benefits leader
“Metre sets the bar very high, in terms of proposal strategy and writing. There is no one better in this profession. Metre brings knowledge, expertise and superb follow-up. The work ethic and “smarts” of Metre consultants in creating a thoughtful strategy and writing to it made them extremely valuable team members.”
Mary Anne Harmer, Director of Strategy, Planning, and Health Disparities Activities
Whether you are responding to an RFP, developing a database of standard content for future RFPs, creating various sales documents, or applying for a grant, Metre provides specialized writing resources to match your needs. We have a knack for making complex subjects easy to understand by creating messages and graphics that are clear, concise, and easy to evaluate. You tell us how it works and we will articulate the value you deliver in a fresh and impactful way that is relevant to the reader.
“We love the content you created. You did a great job of pulling our story from us and asking us to dive deeper into things to really figure out what’s special about us, not just what we think is special. You helped us focus on what the customer wants, not what we want to sell. Having the experts to put it all in one voice, read well, and compelling—we’ve never been able to do that before.”
Andrew Garland, Vice President of Client Relations and External Affairs, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont
“We refer to Metre internally as ‘the closer.’ Metre is able to take a large volume of information and find the salient points, themes and strategies and communicate it all clearly. Metre’s proposal editing and proofreading services are the finest I know. I know I can send it out with confidence.”
Heather Kalb, CF APMP, Proposal Professional
Proposal work is both art and science. Without a formal college degree specifically in proposal development (yet), it is important to train your sales and proposal staff on the proven methodology, processes, and tools used in the proposal profession and backed by APMP. We can start by assessing your needs and then defining, documenting, and implementing customized and repeatable proposal processes that fit your business. We also deliver training on best practices such as establishing a mature bid/no-bid process, developing compelling content, writing an executive summary, managing a complex proposal project, and more. We offer courses relevant to your dedicated proposal resources, salespeople, and subject matter experts.
“We started at ground zero. We used Metre to evaluate our company, identify processes needed, and then document and put them in place. Metre helped us develop a world-class sales operation by developing our sales team, setting up Salesforce.com, and establishing effective and repeatable processes.”
Suzanne Ross, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, AIM Specialty Health
