BEAVERTON, Ore., February 15, 2022 — RFPIO announced today that the organization completed its acquisition of InHub, a leading RFx management solution for the investment community.
InHub is joining RFP360, the global business division of RFPIO dedicated to serving the emerging request management software market. Request management technology empowers teams to more efficiently collect, organize and evaluate information from vendors and suppliers using RFPs, RFIs, RFQs and other digital RFx tools. The move furthers RFPIO’s core mission of streamlining the purchasing lifecycle.
“Acquiring InHub is a big step forward and we’re thrilled to leverage their extensive experience as we transform how organizations request information, respond to requests, and connect,” said Ganesh Shankar, CEO of RFPIO. “We look forward to working with InHub to bring even more buyers and sellers together in one platform — saving time, reducing costs, simplifying collaboration and improving business outcomes for everyone involved.”
According to RFPIO’s CPO/CTO, AJ Sunder, InHub aligns perfectly with RFP360’s current product development, go-to-market and customer success strategy. InHub has built an impeccable reputation — trusted by more than 2,500 organizations — helping leading investment firms and institutional investors including corporations, nonprofits and municipalities with their RFx process. North Pier Search Consulting, OneDigital, NFL Players Association, California Wellness Foundation and the University of Central Florida Foundation are a few recent success stories.
InHub’s founder and CEO, Ariana Amplo, will join the RFPIO leadership team reporting to RFPIO’s COO, Sankar Lagudu, and play a key role in shaping the business division’s short- and long-term strategy while expanding its customer success offerings.
“Our focus at InHub has always been to help our customers make better investment and procurement decisions using our RFx technology and expertise,” said Amplo. “This new chapter is exciting for everyone involved, because we can continue that successful work at an accelerated pace and global scale — increasing our presence in emerging RFx markets alongside RFP360 while capitalizing on RFPIO’s best-in-class approach.”
