The new Provider Profile makes submitting proposals faster, easier, and less repetitive.
Station A was built by people who have worked for years on both ends of the RFP process - as clean energy buyers looking for an excellent developer, and as solar developers working hard to complete an RFP or RFQ response. Assembling a proposal is no small feat, so we strive to make this process more straightforward than it is elsewhere. After gathering feedback from providers in the Station A network, we created the Provider Profile: a one-stop shop for your organization's information.
Introducing the Provider Profile
Most clean energy project proposals ask developers questions about experience and qualifications each time a provider submits a proposal. This makes for tedious and unnecessary copying & pasting.
Station A’s new Provider Profile improves this time-consuming process by allowing you to comprehensively enter your company's information upfront. This makes submitting on the Station A marketplace more streamlined, allowing your team to focus on the details of your proposal.
How it works
Information about a provider's experience, qualifications, and services is now permanently stored in the Provider Profile, a repository of information that is stored for all members of a provider's organization. This profile streamlines the proposal submissions in a few ways:
- Providers can complete their Provider Profile at any time, by visiting app.stationa.com. The questions in this profile account for around 40% of the responses solicited in a standard RFQ, and 20% for RFPs.
- Each time a team starts a new proposal in Station A, anyone in the organization can update the profile again before submitting.
- Once a proposal is submitted for a certain project, the buyer who evaluates your proposal will also have access to the Provider Profile.
Link accounts to work on profiles and proposals together
Most teams involve a few team members to assemble a response to an RFP or RFQ. If more than one person from your organization works on Station A proposals, providers can firstname.lastname@example.org to link accounts to the same organization. This will allow you to share the same Provider Profile and work on proposals together.
