The Master CV is the key to success with our solution. Whereas other proposal tools might use several types of Master CVs for different projects or departments, CV Partner's approach simplifies knowledge CV management - for individual users and your database as a whole:
We always recommend our out-of-the box configurations to receive optimal benefits in the quickest timeframe. By starting with pre-defined category-tags and templates for your organisation, you can ensure individual CVs remain consistent with company-wide processes.
However, CV Partner is built to be flexible, adapting to our clients’ evolving demands. There are then two ways to update a CV depending on a user’s specific user permissions:
The function of a Master CV is to provide a database that organises information in a way that makes sense for your business.
However, the Master CV can also do much more than that.
For instance, usually when you need to add someone’s CV to a new proposal, it would be undesirable or impractical to include their entire CV. But creating a custom CV, for each prospective client would also be time-consuming, leaving multiple ‘dead’ customised CVs that can't be reused, clogging up your system. Finding the right CVs to include in a proposal across multiple departments or locations can also be challenging.
But the Master CV provides simple, elegant solutions to these problems:
CV Customisation. Instantly create a tailored CV for inclusion in a new proposal. Start by copying a snapshot of the chosen Master CV into the proposal document with a single click. This snapshot can now be edited, to alter the text or layout and hide elements or sections of the CV. Include what you want, in the way you want it. Simple, fast CV customisation.
Company Search. Find relevant CVs, skills or qualifications across your enterprise, to discover more about who knows what
Search Two Ways. Use fixed search fields or our free-text functionality; or combine the two. Here are some examples to show you how it works:
What else do I need to know?
Once a user has set up their CV, keeping it up to date is straightforward and fast. The Project Manager adds new projects for them, making it necessary to just fill in a few selected details.
The great advantage for this approach is that it also provides a further incentive for your teams to keep their CV up to date; by providing more complete data on their CV, they start to appear in more relevant search results. This equals more interesting and relevant projects for the individual, with more in-depth data for your bid team to generate higher quality proposals. A win-win.
The Master CV is a simple approach to enriching your proposal management process, helping bid teams to optimise how they collect data and it present to external stakeholders.
The Master CV. One CV for everything you know and more.
