When you subscribe, we discuss your business with you and build a search profile with our unique keyword category system. You have control over how targeted or wide ranging your coverage is.

All of the intensive efforts described in our previous blogs culminate in the arrival of relevant and comprehensive tender alerts in your inbox.

Control Panel

Your online Control Panel gives you access not only to the opportunities listed in your alerts, but also a range of embedded tools designed to make finding and selecting your targets as easy as possible.

With functions like Send to Colleague, Labels, Favourites, and Calendar, you can conduct much of your bid administration within your sourcing system.

Going the extra mile

Dedicated Account Manager

Public sector tendering is a complex process, so all our subscribers have a dedicated Account Manager to provide advice and guidance about either the service itself or the world of public procurement in general.

Even if your Account Manager is unavailable, you’ll always be able to speak to a dedicated customer service representative should you need to do so.

Free Resources

Finding time to develop your knowledge can be difficult. We run regular live free to view webinars on various supplier-focused subjects, with recordings of previous sessions available.

In addition, we have numerous free guides, infographics, and other things to help you. Whether you’re an aspiring contractor or tendering veteran, we have a wealth of knowledge to share.

Additional support

Advance Tender Alerts

Advance Tender Alerts is an optional horizon scanning tool which gives you visibility on potential contract and framework renewals up to six months before a tender notice is published.

This gives you a head start on the competition by providing market intelligence that can be used to pre-engage with buyers, which helps you move away from reactive tendering and facilitates the development of a long term bid strategy.

Training and Consultancy

Competition can be intense, so even the most minor slip in the content or quality of your bid can cost you dearly. If you feel the need for more intensive support beyond the alert service and free resources, we have a selection of full day training courses designed for various levels of experience.

For more bespoke assistance, our team of consultants offer a range of services such as bid writing, reviews of previous submissions, or in-house training based on your specific needs and business focus.
