At this point, Baderman does not have a vendor, a budget or a schedule. They don't even know what word processing software to deploy yet. Next week, you will submit a Request for Proposal (RFP) to potential vendors, but for now it is important to gather information needed to prepare the RFP. That's where Smith Systems Consulting comes in. They are a consultant not a vendor. This paper should address what Smith Systems should do to provide Baderman with the information they need to produce an RFP as well as assist Baderman throughout the project.
Tech Support Specialist: Hans Uebelhoer, Computer Specialist replied 7 years ago
You will need to consider the following points while getting the RFP together. Does Baderman want to go with a free word processor like open office which is not as powerful as some word processors out there, and does he want to take the time and money to pay someone to tech his employees how to use the new word processor. Most employers out there require at least the knowledge to use Microsoft word processor as well as its brothers and sisters like Excel, and Database. He will also want to weigh the differences in pricing of using a free word processor and paying for training and purchasing a known processor and making that a qualification. You will need to decide what sort of hourly price or salary you will want to train his employees on this new system. Basing the RFP around these issues should be enough to win the bid. Another thought would be offering further tech help when needed after the job is done for a certain period of time.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

forever. let me explain. we get a warning every 30-days that we cannot validate our license. the user is behind a firewall which is not configured to block normal traffic to secured ports such as 443. The last time I tried to resolve this with ACT, I was told that you were not using any special ports or protocols. The only way we can get the license to work is to connect the pc to a wireless network. The other issue isnot being able to update ACT even when a user with admin permissions is logged in.
