DemandStar users: Don't settle for less
Get More Leads, More Often with Onvia
As a current or prospective DemandStar user, you're probably aware that it provides online access to bids and RFPs from nearly 400 government agencies. If yours is a small-scale business that has a limited market area or works almost exclusively with agencies that use DemandStar, then it may be the only online agency-procurement and bid-notification service you need.
But imagine how much more government business you could do if you had access to the latest contracting leads from tens of thousands of agencies – and if those leads were custom-selected for your line of business and target markets and were automatically delivered to your email Inbox every day.
That's the powerful competitive advantage that Onvia provides to companies of all sizes. Our technologies and services – combined with our unprecedented, continually updated collection of procurement data – are essentially DemandStar to the power of 2,000. We enable you to respond quickly to contracting opportunities at all levels of government, build relationships with key decision makers well in advance of RFPs, maximize your marketing resources, and focus your strategies on the most promising opportunities.
Here are the products and services that can take your government-contracting business to the next level:
Our core product gives you access at any given point in time to nearly one million bids, RFPs and grants, with thousands of new leads added to the database every day. Search by keyword, agency name, geographical location, market sector, and more. See which agencies are buying what you’re selling, identify buyers, track the competition, get advance notice of upcoming projects, and download bid documents – all with just a few clicks.
The Onvia Guide delivers the latest government-contracting opportunities to your Inbox every morning in the form of a clickable PDF file generated from the Online Database. You can set up saved searches for your Guide so that you receive only the leads that match your business and markets. No more spending hours hunting RFP and bid notices and calling agencies for contact information and project descriptions – we do all the work for you, which means you can focus on pursuing and winning contracts.
With this optional module of the Online Database, you can access agencies’ spending and capital improvement plans and budgets years in advance of the actual projects. You'll get the business intelligence and contact information you need to “get in early” and begin marketing to decision makers and buyers. As with the Database, you can search for plans by a variety of parameters and categories.
Our clients’ needs and requests often go beyond what’s included in our product subscriptions, so we’ve developed ways to leverage our database and our government-contracting expertise to provide specialized services on a per-request basis. For example, we can generate Term Contract Reports that list term or continuing-service contracts in a client’s industry or line of business that will be coming up for renewal in future years. And we can create customized Contact Lists of agency officials in a client’s particular industry, geographical area, targeted government sector, and more.
