How to improve your RFI process

Communication and collaboration are essential for the success of today’s multi-partied construction projects. Key vehicles for that communication are requests for information (RFIs). Efficient RFI processes can quickly clear up questions and address issues. On the other hand, delayed and unanswered RFIs can cascade into project problems, delays, and even legal action.

Sage takes a closer look into RFIs in its latest construction executive guide. The guide covers practical best practices, trends, and tips related to requesting and clarifying construction information. It also helps you identify ways to improve your own RFI process to keep projects moving and reduce risk. Check out the guide to learn:

  • How to get ahead of RFIs

  • How technology can help improve RFI processes

The average cost per RFI review and response is $1,080. Consequently, it stands to reason that better management and reduction of RFIs will also lower costs. This is especially true when you consider the hundreds of RFIs issued on a typical construction project. Read the guide to learn how to improve your RFI process.
