A few years ago, the world of competitive bids and contract renewals arrived like a tornado into the Health & Social Care sector. Suddenly healthcare professionals were being bombarded with an array of commercial opportunities. An exciting opportunity for some. A bewildering distraction for others…

As relationships in the sector inevitably grow more complex, there is a need to work more collaboratively, breaking down barriers and focussing on delivering more integrated care…all while operating in a competitive environment with massive cost pressures. While far from straightforward, it provides a huge opportunity for those Trusts willing to be more creative and innovative.

It’s this mix of commercial and creative thinking that excites Sales Engine…and where we add the most value.

Bid frameworks are a double-edged sword (or should that be scalpel?) – opportunity for enhanced care and growth of the Trust on one side whilst lurking on the other side are time-hungry and distracting technical procurement processes. Not one for the fainthearted. Which is where Sales Engine steps in. We take our unrivalled bid process experience and apply it to the unique requirements of the Health & Social Care sector. We work alongside Trust boards and medical/clinical/patient specialists to take the stress out of the bid opportunities, allowing you to focus on your number one priority (the patients) whilst keeping an eye out for the future.

Once a contract is won, the stakes rise once again as a strong and valuable relationship with the Commissioners is built. Sales Engine helps organisations engage with Commissioners with confidence and focus, building trust through carefully structured meeting plans, visibility of the formal (KPIs) and informal (sentiment, engagement) measures as well as utilising our ContractIQ platform to gain a firm understanding of ‘contract health’.

Coupled with our unique technology, we take lessons learned in the boardrooms of the private sector and apply these to the unique challenges facing Commissioners, Trust Boards and Contract Managers. The net result is a healthier, more transparent and ultimately more valuable relationship for all involved.
