My favorite Optimetra engagement was a small PBM proposal. Although this was not the type of large-scale proposal to which I am accustomed, it allowed me to help the Client see past the numbers and give more attention to solution differentiation. The Client was able to present not only a cost-effective proposal, but was also able to demonstrate their value added benefit – something they had not considered. With some strategic guidance, the Client was able to identify and address the key elements of customer service and client management the customer was seeking. As is so often the case, these needs were more implied than explicit in the RFP.
