BUSINESS-ORIENTED SOCIAL PLATFORM
The majority of business owners today have placed a priority on implementation of their corporate social media campaign for their organization. A socially enabled enterprise is leveraging their reach through technology capabilities and the well documented results of an effective social media program. Until recently, social media platforms have been primarily designed for the individual. While businesses have been adopting the social media world, they are spending sizable sums for a platform designed to match individuals in a ‘business-to-customer’ (B2C) model and not a business-to-business (B2B) model. Zbizlink is a tool designed specifically for businesses and creates a social media platform to meet business norms.
Creating a Zbizlink Profile allows your business to immediately enter business-to-business social media exchange. Your messaging and blogging are in a domain which is seeking your services and products and not competing with the private world. Show your current business activities, post status updates, newsfeeds, and special events. You are able to create personalized business networks, search globally, add your contacts and spread your company message – business to business!
The Zbizlink B2B feature allows users to Match & Filter businesses based upon your needed criteria – skills or products required, project type, location, etc. Instantly, Zbizlink provides recommendations to match your specific criteria – with a global reach.
Zbizlink is the tool to advertise and sell your products and services both regionally or globally, and share your capabilities both in/out of network to attract new clientele.

PROPOSAL MANAGEMENT – ZBIZLINK PROPOSAL BUILDER
Proposal Management is a powerful Zbizlink feature. Proposal Management is a best-of-class tool for developing your proposal workflow, and reduces delivery time, increases simplification working across the proposal development team, and streamlines your proposal management practice.
Large companies love it because it manages across the largest organizations, simplifying an often fragmented and complex process. Small companies love this tool because it has built-in best practices and has you operating like a large company instantly.
Zbizlink Proposal Management features capture the entire proposal life cycle. From Capture Management to Project Award and Close, Zbizlink is the most powerful tool on the market today.
CAPTURE MANAGEMENT (PHASE II FEATURE)
• Proposal Team selection
• Build Your Proposal
• Project Resource sourcing
• Resume Builder
• Past Performance Builder + Past Performance Validation
Zbizlink Proposal Builder walks the project lead through the proposal process to organize and capture project information systematically. From the decision to bid, and the creation of the Proposal Summary, all of the proposal documents and information are retained as you select your proposal team, assign tasks, and utilize Proposal Builder templates to build and develop your proposal.
Businesses which reply upon proposal development to grow their business share the same challenge of managing the complex process of development. Many companies have developed their own process to manage proposals yet the process is seldom supported with technology through the course of proposal development. Much of the organization of proposal development is to store documentations in folders and these are often not shared. Zbizlink Proposal Builder removes these obstacles and enables the process to move efficiently from start to finish, assigning tasks, file sharing among members, retention of all documents for the entire history of the project and finally, development of the Past Performance template for future proposal insertion.
A key component of Proposal Builder are the customizable Proposal Templates. Proposal Builder provides ready-made sections and corresponding templates such as: Introduction, Management Approach, Technical Approach, Past Performance Examples, and Key Personnel Resume. Each section can be assigned to individuals or teams and deliverable dates monitored on your desktop.
Special tools built into Zbizlink are the Resume Builder and Past Performance Builder. These allow for the visual consistency of your professional documents. They provide a step-by-step approach which captures information thoroughly and finishes with a print-ready product for insertion into your proposal or a stand-alone document. Resumes of key personnel can be collected in a consistent format for existing employees or your candidate pool.
Most importantly, Zbizlink is also customizable. You can develop and add your customized templates, or edit existing templates. At the end of the day – or the proposal – you have a repository of the proposal history and can track the project using the Zbizlink Project Management tool through award and project execution.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT (PHASE II)
Many companies are using stand-alone project management tools to manage their projects. They may have developed a process for proposal management but that information does not feed over into the project management tool. Zbizlink offers the seamless flow from proposal to project. Zbizlink captures the key information from the proposal to allow the project manager and project teams to gather data already collected during the proposal process.
The Zbizlink tool was designed with the highest industry standards of Project Management recognized today. Like Proposal Builder, the templates, and the ability to assign teams and delegate tasks are important features of Zbizlink Project Management.
The templates and report tools provide users with options to support the project throughout the project life cycle:
• Monitor and Control
