A Shift from Traditional RFP Platforms
One common category of intelligence providers revolves around Request for Proposal (RFP) platforms. These platforms excel at providing comprehensive RFP responses, catering to businesses with the bandwidth to respond to large and time-consuming RFPs. While useful for reactive responses, they may not prioritize early-stage project visibility or the ability to influence projects. Citylitics recognized the need for a solution that goes beyond traditional RFP platforms and offers proactive insights into the infrastructure market.
Dynamic Contact Lists and Meeting Scanners
Another type of intelligence provider offers static contact lists, but the feedback from customers suggests that these lists often become stale or outdated quickly. Additionally, some providers focus solely on mining meeting minutes for specific information. While these solutions can be useful for certain purposes, they may not meet the broader needs of businesses seeking comprehensive intelligence. Citylitics recognized the limitations of these approaches and sought to provide a more robust and proactive solution.
Proactive Insights and Influencing Power
Citylitics caters to customers who prioritize early-stage project visibility and the ability to influence projects. This distinction sets Citylitics apart from other providers. By delivering early stage intelligence, Citylitics empowers businesses to shape projects before they reach the RFP stage. This is particularly valuable for customers who want to be proactive, maximize their sales efforts, and strategically position themselves in the market. Citylitics’ solution aligns with customers’ sales strategies and provides a better fit for those aiming to be proactive and influential.
Unlocking Digital Analytics Capabilities
Citylitics offers customers more than just data; it provides an opportunity to build digital analytics capabilities. While other providers may focus solely on delivering data, Citylitics encourages customers to leverage the data provided and explore more interesting and advanced applications. This approach allows businesses to enhance their digital analytics capabilities, gain deeper insights, and unlock new opportunities for growth. Citylitics provides a solid foundation for customers looking to take their intelligence capabilities to the next level.
Citylitics differentiates itself from other intelligence providers by offering proactive insights, influencing power, and the opportunity to build digital analytics capabilities. While traditional RFP platforms, contact lists, and meeting scanners have their merits, Citylitics recognized the need for a solution that empowers businesses to shape projects at an early stage, maximize sales efforts, and go beyond simple data delivery. By providing a better fit for customers with larger ambitions and limited bandwidth, Citylitics stands out as a partner that not only delivers intelligence but also encourages businesses to unlock the full potential of their data and build advanced analytics capabilities.
