Onvia announced the release of Vendor Center, a new strategic business intelligence solution to identify and evaluate government contractors.

Vendor Center:

  • Reports which companies are winning government business by industry and geography
  • Lists active term contracts and awards won by each vendor
  • Provides detailed product and pricing data by vendor based on past bid results
  • Summarizes firmographic data for each vendor, including annual revenue, employee count, industry and ownership data

In addition to the wealth of historical data for government vendors, Vendor Center is a dynamic tool that provides ongoing tracking and benchmarking.  Once you identify the vendors you want to track, you are automatically notified of any new procurement activity for your vendors of interest.  Equally impressive is the ability to benchmark up to five vendors and compare them against each other on a real time basis. You can compare the number of awards, number of active term contracts, number of agencies as customers, average award value, and percentage of business divided between federal, state and local markets.

Vendor Center is the first in a series of strategic business intelligence solutions that Onvia plans to introduce to the marketplace over the next two years.
