AUSTIN, Texas — April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based Enterprise Work Management software, today announced the latest release of Qvidian, its cloud-based request for proposal (RFP) and proposal automation software. The release extends Qvidian’s integration capabilities with Microsoft Office 365 and Salesforce® solutions, and augments content review reporting to help organizations in regulated industries meet stringent compliance requirements.
Qvidian’s improved integration with Microsoft Office 365 allows users to directly edit content for RFP and other request projects, such as requests for information (RFI) and due diligence questionnaires (DDQ), allowing sales teams to be more responsive to customer requests.

Our specific formatting is maintained, and this new workflow has fewer steps, saving us critical time,” said Mila Lynne, an Upland customer and Qvidian administrator in the educational services market.
“Completing RFPs, security questionnaires, and due diligence questionnaires quickly and accurately is critical to any enterprise’s ability to win new business,” said Sean Nathaniel, CTO and SVP of Workflow Automation Solutions at Upland Software. “Upland’s Qvidian solution helps proposal teams keep up with demand while maintaining high quality standards and brings our customers to the next level of efficiency.”
