 DCI helps organisations engage earlier

Defence Contracts International strives to help buyers and suppliers in the defence industry work more effectively together across private and public sector procurement.

By taking a proactive approach to tendering and engaging with defence buyers earlier, businesses can prepare their procurement strategy and their tender response far in advance.

There are many benefits to engaging earlier and DCI provides an array of powerful business intelligence tools that can help your business achieve this.

How our features support early engagement

  • Market Leads: Get named contacts and contact details for networking across both the private and the public sector. This gets the tender process off to a flying start, as your organisation will have access to the key decision makers in defence tenders.
  • Commercial Projects: Gain advance notification of upcoming framework renewals and recurring projects.
  • Archive Data: Understand previous tender requirements, with five years minimum of historical data included as standard in each DCI package. This allows you to discover whether your competitors have won business with certain buyers before, to uncover new competitors within your field and to identify sub-contracting opportunities.
  • Spend Analysis: Identify buyer spend patterns, including what they are buying, where, from whom and for how much.
  • Having DCI saves all the time spent searching the official journals and using the keywords & phrases filter ensures I only receive details pertinent to our business
