Northern Light (www.northernlight.com) launched the first hosted market research portal specifically geared to help companies identify sales opportunities with federal, state, and local governments throughout the U.S. The SinglePoint Government Opportunities Edition indexes a broad array of government buying intention announcements, reports, and news stories from authoritative research sources specializing in government procurement. Government specific sources include Centurion Research Solutions, EagleEye, Infobase Publishers, and FedBizOps.gov.
Powered by Northern Light’s search engine, SinglePoint Government Opportunities Edition provides a unified search index of targeted government RFIs, RFPs, and contract awards. Also included in the unified search index are 85,000 reports from 20 information technology (IT) market research firms such as Datamonitor, Forrester, and Frost & Sullivan, and 20,000 stories daily from 6,000 Northern Light Business News sources such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. When users find opportunities or documents that they wish to explore, they can click through directly to the opportunity and associated research at the provider’s site (if they are subscribers to the services) or directly to the document on the publication’s site if the desired material is from Northern Light Business News.
