NRF and ARTS are developing a library of standard RFPs (or ITTs as they are sometimes known) to help retailers select the “right” software applications for their specific business practices.
The creation of a comprehensive RFP can be extremely costly. Many companies spend an inordinate amount of time and effort creating an RFP for a particular system, and if their document has overlooked or is missing key requirements, it can become even more costly to the company in the long run.
RFP documents have been released for the following applications: Business Intelligence (BI) Cloud ComputingMaster Data Management Point of Sale (POS) Software v2.0POS Exception Reporting POS Signature Capture Systems Price Optimization Workforce Management Systems Warehouse Management System
Standard RFPs significantly shorten the time retailers spend researching new applications to suit their business processes. A joint project of NRF and ARTS, members of both organizations can obtain them free of charge from either the NRF or ARTS websites. Nonmembers may purchase them for a fee of USD 5,000 in the NRF Store.
