“We invited Winning Proposals to come to our facility and assess our proposal quality. We are very pleased and impressed with the results as the analysis showed us where we stand versus industry benchmarks and pointed out areas where we might improve. I am convinced the information we obtained will enable us to gain additional contracting dollars.
