The challenge

We were looking for a lead generation service which could help us identify new construction projects across the UK and allow us to be more aware of the opportunities they could present to us. We wanted to use the data to help with sales forecasting and identify geographical areas which would present the most opportunity for the construction sectors in which we work.

The solution

Glenigan helps us identify opportunities to target via the search function. It allows you to filter out projects by contract awarded, estimated start dates, the industry, project value and geographical area amongst other criteria. This allows our sales team to have a more targeted approach. Being able to set up alerts based on your chosen criteria is also very beneficial.

Alternative solutions

We were initially recommended Glenigan by new staff members who had prior experience with the platform. Despite this, GAP believed it was best practice to allow various lead generation service providers to pitch their products to our main administrators, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation of available options.

We found that project information provided by Glenigan was more accurate, offering greater context on companies involved in specific projects. We also liked the functionality Glenigan provided, particularly its ability to quickly generate and automate reports.

Overall, Glenigan stood out to us as a reliable solution with advanced features that aligned well with our needs.

Would you recommend Glenigan?

I would recommend Glenigan for the ease of use and the availability of the account managers for GAP (Matthew Lowe and Lorna Youl) who are happy to assist with any query and will always respond quickly. It is clear that they have a passion for their customers and therefore our business. Any notes/requests to the research team are quickly responded to and acted on with the search facility being very user friendly for staff regardless of their IT knowledge.

Glenigan delivers commercial advantage to our business allowing us to identify new opportunities and convert them to business.

The contacts associated with the projects are useful and the connection to LinkedIn is fantastic.
