Uncover Insights with Competitor Intelligence in Bidhive

July 4, 2023


Staying ahead of the competition in bidding is crucial for success. That’s why we are excited to introduce a powerful new feature in Bidhive to track and analyse competitors on every bid, uncovering valuable insights to enhance your bidding strategy and improve your chances of winning.

Track Challengers and Incumbents

Tracking competitors allows you to monitor both the challengers and the incumbents you bid against at a company and business line level. By identifying who your main competitors are, you gain valuable knowledge about their strengths, weaknesses, and bidding history. This information will help you to refine your own approach and develop strategies to differentiate.

Know Who Won or Lost

Tracking competitors also provides you with valuable insights into bid outcomes. You can now easily track who won or lost specific contracts, giving you a clearer understanding of your competitors’ success rates, and their likely workload capacity in the market. Armed with this knowledge, you can make data-driven decisions and adjust your bidding strategy accordingly.

Enhance Your Bidding Strategy

We’ve incorporated competitors into the steps you’re already familiar with in Bidhive. This means you can conveniently access competitor information and insights at the stages where it matters most. By leveraging this feature, you can fine-tune your proposals, identify gaps in the market, and position yourself as the strongest contender.

Gain a Competitive Edge

Bidhive’s competitor feature helps you stay one step ahead of your rivals. By monitoring and analysing your competitors, and combining this with our Post-Bid Analysis that captures customer feedback, you can identify emerging trends, spot potential opportunities, and mitigate risks. This knowledge gives you a competitive edge, allowing you to craft winning bids that resonate with customers.

We think this is a huge leap forward for bidding teams that haven’t had their own digital tools for bid management until now. By harnessing the power of insights and data, you can elevate your bidding strategy and increase your chances of securing contracts.

Avoiding price risk and the winner’s curse in competitive bidding

As the true cost of construction and hard/soft infrastructure delivery is not known until the completion of a project, contractor selection and the risk of selecting a winning bidder that has underestimated the cost of the contract is a major concern in procurement. This can lead to the winner’s curse, a term that refers to the difference between the lowest and second lowest bid, and the consequences of the bid price being too low to cover the costs including a reasonable return. In this blog we discuss ways to reduce price risk in bidding.
