Finding public procurements with Building Radar
Little by little public tendering is becoming a standard method for contracting. In contrast to construction projects, public procurements only ask for an accurately defined service. Building Radar now offers the opportunity to find all construction projects and public procurements in one place. In this article, we would like to expand on the opportunities with tenders, especially with regard to our customers. Many companies have already taken advantage of public procurements to boost sales. With Building Radar, we would like to make it even easier for you and provide newcomers with a new way to sell and help experienced companies to sell even more.
1. Why public procurements
As mentioned above, public procurements only ask for one specific service. This service can range from installation, maintenance, management to the delivery of products and much more. Here, we have already put together a detailed description of public procurements. The article offers a practical overview of the basic concepts and mechanisms of construction bids.
2. How does Building Radar work?
Building Radar has developed a highly complex search algorithm. This algorithm works similar to a search-engine with an around the clock scan of thousands of websites for new construction projects and public procurements. This work that is usually being done by permanent research managers of the companies themselves who do a tedious and time-consuming job is now taken over by the algorithm. It filters individually interesting offers and transmits them to our customers. Our Building Radar customers, therefore, have a competitive edge over their competitors. The search for new orders becomes much easier, less personnel intensive and is done much faster. This is especially helpful to small, growing companies but also to larger well-established companies to noticeably increase efficiency. This way, a small company, particularly in its start-up phase, can forego employing too many employees and therefore cut the associated fixed costs. At the same time, a collaboration of Building Radar and the European Space Agency (ESA) allows the verification of the data transmitted to you through high-quality satellite images. Naturally, it is possible for you to determine the current state of the tendering process through user-friendly data. You can see exactly in which phase the construction bid is. On top of that, you can search for past public procurements at any time and see which supplier was awarded the contract at what conditions. This can help you to get a better overview of the market and your competitors.
3. Finding public procurements
For a Building Radar customer, the search for new public procurements is highly flexible and user-friendly thanks to our intuitive interface. Each search enables you to set a geographic limitation e.g. which allows a customer who operates in Western Europe to limit his search to this area. A local provider can also set the limitation to a city or a certain community. Additionally, the customer can enter keywords or certain services in order to see projects specifically tailored to him.
It is further possible to set the minimum and maximum project durations as well as the order volume which will be visible immediately. Building Radar thus enables every customer to create a personalised and promising portfolio of public procurements which shows that the website is useful for a wide variety of companies – especially in regard to the public procurements. This applies to specialised companies in particular as only a certain service is called for.
4. Extended Functions
In a search for the best time saving possible, Building Radar has created another feature: saved searches to enable the customer to provide certain search criteria. Now, our customer receives an automatic notification whenever a new construction bid with his criteria is published. The live search of the algorithm makes it possible to send the notification exactly at the same time as the construction bid is published. This is a huge advantage for Building Radar customers. Additionally, further optimisation of our product is assured thanks to our intensive customer contact and feedback we take very seriously.
5. Managing public procurements
Building Radar immediately filters the information of a construction bid. Our customer receives detailed information about its issuer and his contact details. He can instantly determine what kinds of services the issuer of the construction bid needs when. Often the lowest price is the decisive selection criterion. This is especially true for public tendering. Other selection criteria or application limitations are possible as well about which the customer will be informed immediately. Using this information, the customer can now adjust his offer exactly to the mentioned criteria to generate the best success chance possible.
6. Greater Success through public procurements
As mentioned above, public procurements are getting more and more popular and every company should be prepared as well as possible for this trend. They stand for maximum transparency that is legally guaranteed by Abschnitt 1 §12 VOL/A. Due to this transparency, illegal arrangements are excluded especially within the public sector. Only the quality of offers decides who wins a construction bid. We at Building Radar try to ensure this quality for our customers. This is made possible by fast and precise access to all relevant information. As the criteria are precisely mentioned in the construction bid, exact filtering of the given information is eminently time-consuming. We take on this task for your company so you only have to worry about creating the right offer as you will have immediate access to all relevant public procurements and will be able to adjust your strategy to the current market before anyone else.
