Market Update – November in Review

Since the COVID-19 crisis began, we have harnessed Tracker’s powerful database, business intelligence and data analysis services to do what BiP has done for the last 36 years – bring buyers and suppliers together.

At the height of the crisis, the company monitored and analysed data from Tracker weekly to make sure that buyers and suppliers were kept up to date with activity in the public sector, with a special focus on central and local government, defence, education and health.

In light of the continuing restrictions and the autumn lockdown, our BiP Solutions media and marketing services, Cadence Marketing, have published a monthly report, in association with DCI to help you understand what is happening in the public sector and how our data, together with powerful business intelligence solutions like DCI and Supply2Defence, can help you engage earlier and succeed in this marketplace.

Each report considers how the public sector marketplace is responding to the latest changes before focusing on one of our key sectors in greater detail. In our latest monthly review, we examine defence trends and spends. Following the Government announcement of the biggest spend in Defence since the Cold War, now is the time for suppliers to tap into this marketplace.

Key Highlights Include:

  • 7374 contract notices published – a decrease of 2.49% compared with October’s figures (though still an increase of 11.27% from September)
  • Of the 2767 contract notices that stated a value, 1016 (36.71%) were worth £100,000 or less, while
    a further 685 (24.75%) were worth £100,000-£500,000, representing continued opportunities for SMEs
  • In November, the defence sector published 271 contract notices – the highest monthly volume since before the start of the first national lockdown in March
  • Well over half of defence notices published in November were non-OJEU, making them potentially of
    interest to SMEs

Business Growth in a Post-Brexit world

Many businesses may feel it is difficult to prepare for the coming months without knowing what will change on or after 29th March. Although the date the United Kingdom was scheduled to leave the European Union is fast approaching, it may seem that there is still relatively little certainty as to what Brexit means – either politically, or for business.

However, there are many areas of opportunity available to businesses regardless of the outcome of the coming weeks’ political decisions. Drawing on our 35 years of experience in public procurement, BiP Solutions have produced a new guidance document, ‘Opportunities and Trends for Business Growth in a Post-Brexit World.’ Drawing on recent announcements from the Chancellor’s Spring Statement, current guidance about the various possible outcomes for Brexit, and our expert knowledge of industry trends, the seven-page guidance document covers key areas that are set to provide multiple opportunities, both in the UK and across the world, over the months ahead.

Grahame Steed, Business Intelligence and e-Sourcing Director at BiP Solutions, said:

While the UK’s exit from the EU is creating a degree of uncertainty for businesses, the growth potential provided by the public sector at home and internationally remains vast. Now is the time to focus on identifying the right opportunities within this multi-billion pound sector, and engaging with the right organisations to ensure they are aware of what businesses can do to solve their challenges.

Five ways business intelligence can help you win more government tenders

win more government tenders

In this digital age, utilising the correct business intelligence tools is extremely important to stay ahead of the competition, increase revenues and win more government tenders.

At BiP Solutions, we streamline the process of winning government tenders by providing Europe’s largest database of contracts information and intelligence at your fingertips in one centrally managed source.

As a global market leader in the provision of procurement solutions, we provide a range of market intelligence tools to both the public and private sectors which turn data into actionable information and provide insights which give your organisation a distinct advantage over the competition.

Here are five ways our flagship product, Tracker, and its business intelligence solutions can help you win more government tenders:

Spend Analysis tool

Each year, the public sector spends billions of pounds on every type of service imaginable and legislation requires that details are published of all transactions over £500 by public sector bodies in England. Using our spend analysis tool can give you access to this data, and help you turn it into actionable intelligence.

Who is spending money? How much are they spending? What are they spending it on, and in which sectors? This unparalleled insight into public sector organisations’ spend patterns will keep you up to date with all competitor activity, as well as identify countless new opportunities to help your organisation grow.

The right data, at the right time

Knowledge is power, and we provide you with all the information you need, when you need it.

Our Market Intelligence tool tracks over 5000 unique sources of business, government and procurement news every day, providing you with the critical market information you need to know to tender successfully for public and private sector business.

This information, commentary and insight ensures that you will never miss a tendering opportunity again.

First mover advantage

When it comes to winning government tenders, it’s important to put yourself in the best position to take advantage of the opportunity, and this finding out about opportunities as soon as they become available.

Our business data gives you essential information on relevant opportunities before the formal tendering process begins. This gives you a distinct advantage over the competition.

Make faster, smarter decisions

Our tools can provide you with instant access to opportunities, which helps you make decisions faster.

We have streamlined the process of finding the right government tenders for you by providing information on all opportunities in one central location, which saves you a huge amount of time compared to manually searching multiple databases. Moreover, you can create a bid response directly from our Tracker Tender Alerts.

With all the information you need under one umbrella, you can make fast decisions which leads to faster growth.

A personalised service

We take great pride in providing our customers with a truly personalised service and our Bid Manager tool allows you to organise your personal bid documents in a single, easy to use tool.

By creating your own unique profile in our system, you will only see the most relevant opportunities rather than wasting time trawling through unrelated leads across multiple platforms. When you find the right opportunity for your organisation, Bid Manager gives you instant access to supporting documents where you can easily create and manage all bid responses in one place.

BiP Solutions is committed to helping your business to grow. By tailoring our services to our customers’ individual needs, you can spend more time bidding for and winning business than searching for it.
