CODAworx Adds New Digital Tool to Streamline Artist Selection
MADISON, WI, July 31, 2017 – CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, today announced the launch of a new digital tool for its RFP Toolkit, the industry standard for finding and hiring artists for commissions. The RFP Select tool is the third digital module in the RFP Toolkit; it provides an easy-to-use structure for administrators and selection committee members to score project applications based on criteria set for the commission.
The RFP Select tool completes the art commission process. RFP Select provides flexibility in setting multiple rounds of scoring of applicants, using criteria with self-selected weights. The software allows for applications to be reviewed simply and easily all online in one place.
Also included in the RFP Toolkit are the RFP Blast and RFP Manage tools. RFP Blast announces RFPs and RFQs to targeted groups of creative professionals, and directs applicants to a unique application portal. RFP Manage accepts applications, organizing multiple application documents into a single, visually consistent portfolio.
The CODAworx RFP Toolkit has now been used for major art commission projects in New York City, Toronto, Sarasota, Boulder, and San Diego. Commercial developers, art consultants, public art agencies, and Fortune 500 companies have used the CODAworx RFP Toolkit to find qualified artists and creative teams.
CODAworx developed the digital tools in response to difficulties it faced in managing the RFP process for clients. “The RFP Toolkit brings efficiencies to all parties in the complicated, messy, previously offline process of commissioning art,” said Toni Sikes, CODAworx CEO. “This software provides our customers a way to reach the top artists, and then takes them through a structured jurying process to review applications and select the best candidate. By simplifying art commission announcements-applications-reviews and providing dynamic displays, we believe that these tools will encourage many more amazing art projects around the world.”
The hub of the commissioned art economy, CODAworx matches creative talent with creative opportunities by providing software that streamlines the commission workflow process.
