Supply2Gov launched a year ago today and what a wonderful year it’s been!
First things first, we would like to thank all our customers who have joined us so far. It has been our pleasure to help you to find public procurement opportunities across the UK and Ireland.
In celebration of our first birthday, we are sharing some of our key highlights from this year.
The Tender Ready Toolkit
Last year we launched our “Tender Ready Toolkit” – supporting small businesses across the UK to be properly prepared to bid for public procurement opportunities.
The Tender Ready Toolkit comes with a range of eGuides and checklists designed for Supply2Giv users, so they can get the best out of their tender alerts service as well as developing their tendering strategy.
All new Supply2Gov customers can access this toolkit for free, by registering for a Ready To Take Flight subscription.
Supply2Gov at Events
We got to chat with some of our customers face to face and met new clients at procurement events across the country during 2018. Our team attended:
- P4H Scotland
- P4H England
- Procurex Scotland
- Procurex England
- Procurex Ireland
- Procurex Wales
- UK Infrastructure Show
We presented at a number of these events, gave procurement advice on the stand and even hosted a VR Challenge at Procurex Scotland and Wales with our parent company BiP Solutions.
If you would like to join us at one of this year’s events, visit the BiP Solutions website.
Our service not only offers tender alerts, but on top of this our users can gain access to expert procurement webinars, hosted by our team and special guests from the industry. Here is a rundown of just some of the events we hosted.
BiP Talks Brexit: Supply2Gov was a part of one of BiP Solutions’ most popular webinars in 2018. The panel considered topics such as contract opportunity advertising requirements and jurisdiction over current public sector contracts post Brexit.
PASS Procurement – Introduction to Public Sector Procurement: Our team was joined by Principal PASS Procurement Consultant Eddie Regan as he gave an overview of what public sector procurement is and entails. Mr Regan also revealed his top tips on how to get procurement ready, so small businesses can gain access to a slice of the the annual £242 billion public procurement pie.
Create a Winning Alert Profile: Supply2Gov’s Senior Marketing Executive, Melissa Russell, hosted the “Create a Winning Alert Profile” webinar regularly last year.
This webinar is particularly useful for small businesses that are new to procurement as viewers learn how to fully optimise their S2G email alert profile and make full use of S2G’s features.
This series of webinars will continue in 2019. If you missed it, sign up for the next event here.
