Techniques for using tables to deal with tight proposal page limits

Tips, tricks, and gotchas for reducing page count using tables

The reasons why tables help reduce the page count are:

  • RFPs usually allow for a smaller font size in tables
  • The text that goes in a table can be succinct, use fewer words, and not to be complete sentences
  • Table text can be repetitive, but tables also help you eliminate the repetitive parts
  • Tables enable you to show relationships without explaining them
  • Tables can show required data without having to talk about it.

Just don't fill your tables with whitespace.
