“You can want wins to happen and wish wins to happen… or you can make them happen.”
Obtaining competitive intelligence (CI) is a core need for any successful business leader, whether they have P&L ownership, act as a capture manager, or function as a business development executive.
CI is a critical ingredient to any winning capture.
But we understand that it’s challenging: Quality CI done well and done quickly is difficult to achieve.
Since 2012, FedSavvy Strategies has made CI less burdensome for its clients, providing competitive intelligence on billions of dollars of winning federal prime contract pursuits. Tackling diverse assignments across numerous technical domains has refined our skills, processes, and knowledge.
To better serve this array of clients, we developed our own tailored natural language processing (NLP)-based automation to use in-house as a complement to our CI tradecraft. This is not another generic database, as are too common to the industry, but it’s automation that amplifies the efficacy of our own deliverables.
Rapid CI™ is the application of our automation and tradecraft to deliver customized and fast-response CI, helping firms as they race against the clock and resource limitations to win prime contracts.
Rapid CI™ solves fundamental problems in competitive intelligence:
- Relevancy of information
- Ease of use
- Speed of response
We get it. Getting quality CI done well and quickly is difficult. There is a better way. This led us to create our Rapid CI offering.
What are the benefits of Rapid CI?
When we conceived of Rapid CI™, it was designed to address all core three problems of relevancy, ease of use and speed.
How does Rapid CI™ work?
What does Rapid CI deliver?
The end product generated by Rapid CI is our Competitor Profile. This is a contextually specific analysis of a selected competitor against a specific federal contract pursuit.
What is a Competitor Profile?
Rapid CI™ generates a FedSavvy Strategies Competitor Profile. This is a core deliverable that we’ve used to support our clients’ Black Hat reviews since 2012. Each aspect of the Competitor Profile is built on our analysis of the selected competitor and with the context of the targeted opportunity.
What are use cases for Rapid CI™?
|Use case||Why does this matter?|
|Initial assessment of competition for go / no-go||If you’re making an early go/no-go decision on a major contract pursuit, quickly assess suspected competitors without spending HOURS poring through databases or making endless phone calls?|
Save time and money by using Rapid CI™ Competitor Profiles before you pursue to understand how formidable the competition might be.
|Evaluate your potential partners||Understanding what your potential partners are capable of contributing takes time and effort. This becomes more challenging with larger, more complex firms. Avoid meetings with a potential partner that has no value to your business interests or go into those partner meetings armed with knowledge to drive the outcome.|
Use the Competitor Profiles to understand partners before you meet.
|Rapid assessment of domain capabilities||Quickly assess people, process, tools and past performance specific to an area of domain expertise. Work with the FedSavvy Strategies team to define a specific topic of concern so we may assess feasibility and fit.|
Engage Rapid CI™ to quickly test technical expertise.
|Account planning||It’s common practice to engage in account planning to support business growth. While you assess demand from potential customers and which contracts your firm might pursue, it’s imperative to know how potential competitors may compare. Understand their position with the customer and even understand what other contracts they have which you may target.|
As you plan, use Rapid CI™ to evaluate potential competitors.
