Speaking of the idea behind this portal, CEO of Oppex, Ville Heinonen, said that the public sector has massive sales opportunities that aren’t even known to a number of companies.
Heinonen said that companies often fail to bid for promising public sector projects even in their home countries, because of this lack of awareness. Needless to say, cross-border deals are even harder to negotiate. This is where Oppex hopes to bring about change by helping companies find new businesses and earn higher revenue from projects that exist in the public sector worldwide.
The portal allows companies to search for tenders and sales opportunities. In addition to this, the portal also comprises a database of public sector tenders that is updated continuously. According to the latest figures, the search engine had about 3.5 million listed tenders for the public sector. All of these tenders are translated into English, using specially-designed software. This, the company feels, will open up many new opportunities for companies located across the world.
