Be the first to react to weak signals

Dry networks, public lighting, IRVE, heating networks... You are alerted as soon as a municipality has questions about a subject related to your activity. You can identify local decision-makers directly from the tool.

Adapt your offer to local challenges

You have access to the latest elected officials' speeches, the history of competing projects on the territory and local news. By adapting your proposal to the constraints of the territory, you improve the relevance of your offer.

Track the activity of competitors

You are informed of the market shares taken by your competitors, their pricing policies and partnerships with local public actors. Armed with this information, you build a competitive offer in terms of the local ecosystem.

After these first months of use, we can already say that 6 or 7 projects have been concluded thanks to the information provided by Explain.
