What We Do

Strategic Bid Management with winning themes based on effective research to carefully position your brand to match your products or services with the needs of your potential client and showcase you to your best advantage

Strategic Bid Management to establish the winning strategies and themes for a particular bid or proposition that focuses on your potential clients aspirations and expectations from the outset. We introduce you to the powerful 3Ps ProcessTM that underlies every element of successful business generation to identify the Problem (the issue that your customers wants to solve) with the solutions you offer through your Product (your goods or services) that meets their Purpose (the ultimate benefit or outcome that your customer wants to achieve).

We carry out detailed research into each opportunity and look behind the obvious information that is provided to really understand what your potential client wants to achieve and how you can best help them do it. Winning strategies goes well beyond answering the questions you are asked in a bid thereby avoiding any need to sell your goods or services and gives your customers more reasons to buy from you rather than your rivals.

Our comprehensive approach combines effective business development techniques and targeted bid strategies, excellent communication and creativity, technical solutions, management planning and risk management throughout the entire process.
