DCI Features & Benefits
With features built to support your business growth at every level, whether you are an SME relatively new to working with the defence sector, or a large multinational corporate company looking for deeper market insight, DCI provides a range of market-leading tools to help you to engage earlier, be more competitive and sell more effectively.
Market Leads is a powerful tool that gives you instant visibility of potential private sector leads, public sector framework opportunities and pipeline contracts long before they’ve even been tendered.
DCI’s in-house professional journalists research business and government news daily from our database of more than 5,000 unique sources, and only provide you with market updates matching your unique business profile for maximum relevance.
Business decisions are reached through understanding not only the current marketplace, but what has gone before, which is why we provide historical contract notices, awards, PINs, frameworks and renewal information for you to analyse and use to your advantage.
Spend Analysis collates and publishes all UK defence sector and English public sector spend data in line with the Government’s Transparency Agenda, which requires UK local and central government to publish details of all transactions over £500 and £25,000 respectively.
Both government and private sector outsourcing increased in 2018 – with so much opportunity available in the private sector marketplace, learn how to expand your business portfolio with DCI’s Commercial Projects tool.
