Pipelines allow you to easily triage all the opportunities you’d like to pursue.

Add to a Pipeline

To add to a pipeline:

  1. Click on the Add to Pipeline button on any search result.
  2. Create a new pipeline or add the opportunity to an existing one.

Managing Pipelines

Navigate over to the Pipelines section. From here, you can get a birds-eye-view of all the opportunities you’re interested in.

Capture Assistant

Make an educated bid/no-bid decision in minutes by leveraging Sweetspot’s Capture Assistant to estimate your probability of winning an opportunity. Sweetspot AI then uses your capture data to fine tune your Proposal Copilot responses.

  1. Navigate to the Pursuits section.
  2. Click on any pursuit.
  3. Navigate to the Capture tab.
  4. Here, you can provide responses to each capture question such that our AI is aware of the full capture context.

The capture process focuses on understanding and influencing the buyer’s requirements and decision-making framework before an RFP is issued. This allows your organization to shape the procurement in its favor, establish relationships with key stakeholders, and tailor its offerings to meet specific needs. By managing the capture phase via the capture questions, your organization can increase its chances of submitting a winning proposal, ensuring it aligns with the buyer’s objectives.

Pipeline Editor

Each stage in your pipeline has a weight attached to it, which, when combined with the answers and scores in a pursuit’s capture questionnaire, can be used to estimate the PWin for a given opportunity within your pipeline.

To edit a pipeline:

  1. Navigate to the Pipelines section.
  2. Click on the pipleine you would like to edit.
  3. Click the Edit button.
  4. Here, you can manually adjust the weightage of each section.

The weight of a question is the multiplier used to combine its score with the rest of the scores in a pursuit’s capture questionnaire. The combination of these weighted scores amongst each topic within a stage’s capture questionnaire can be used to create a rough estimate of your PWin.

With a properly configured pipeline, the capture questionnaire within a given pursuit can help inform a bid/no-bid decision.
