Porge provides public sector market insight services that help Suppliers win contracts and Commissioners save money
Since 1999 Porge has given its private sector clients a significant headstart on public sector procurements. Our clients use this early warning period to make contact with the commissioners, and establish a relationship with them before the formal procurement starts. This opportunities insight service is called Prospector.
Prospector has a sister service called Illuminator. Illuminator is an extremely accurate, dynamically updated, government spend analysis tool. Illuminator shows how much money every supplier to the public sector has earned, who each government body is spending its money with, and how much market share each supplier has captured. Suppliers to the Public Sector use Illuminator to understand what their competitors are charging and how much their clients (and potential clients) are paying their competitors. Commissioners in the Public Sector use Illuminator to make better strategic procurement decisions. Illuminator shows Commissioners where their own spend sits in their Supplier's client list. Understanding if their contract is at the top, middle, or bottom of their supplier's client list is very helpful in any negotiation. Illuminator also shows Commissioners what suppliers are charging their peers.

Prospector allows subscribers several months head start on formal procurement start dates, enabling them to get ahead of the pack. Prospector has a number of modules, which focus on different markets, and subscribers chose to subscribe to as many, or as few, as they need.
Illuminator shines a bright light on government spending. It is the only spending analysis tool that aggregates and categorises actual invoice data as disclosed by councils, NHS trusts, and government departments. A powerful search facility allows for the in-depth analysis and comparison of figures to reveal the full extent of how departmental budgets are actually spent.
The Porge service is of significant value and is a key source of market insight and opportunities for BT in the Public Sector.

If a local authority places their thoughts and plans into the public domain the chances are that Porge will pick them up. The alerts they provide save hours of desk research and enable our managers to focus on other important elements of their roles.
