SEATTLE, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Onvia, a leading provider of government-contracting opportunities and business intelligence, announces that it has achieved major year-over-year increases in the volume of government-contracting data that it collects and provides to its clients in its Online Database.
In Q1 of 2012, Onvia reached unprecedented levels of coverage of high-value data that companies need to be successful in the government business marketplace. These volume increases (compared with the same quarter of 2011) include the following:
- 116% more bid results, which clients use to track their competition, see which specific products or services competitors are proposing to agencies, and analyze pricing trends
- 53% more contract awards, which provide opportunities for competitive analysis; help clients find teaming, subcontracting and supplier opportunities; and let them identify when contracts will be coming up for renewal or rebidding
- 40% more Advance Notices, which allow clients to get a head start in building agency decision-maker relationships regarding future projects before bids and RFPs for those projects are issued.
"We know that businesses need much more than bids and RFPs to gain a competitive advantage in the public-sector marketplace," said Naveen Rajkumar, Onvia's Senior Vice President and CIO, "and our increased collection of award data, bid results and early project notifications allows our clients to improve their business-development strategies, qualify the right opportunities to pursue, and stay a step ahead of competitors."
