Unlock the True Potential of Information

Ontopical lets you identify leads and opportunities first by keeping your finger on the pulse of your industry, target prospects, and current public sector customers.

You're Missing Out on Key Conversations

There are brilliant insights and unmissable opportunities hidden within the scores of government information released every day. But to effectively identify important signals and emerging opportunities, you need to filter out the noise and simplify research. You need to share alerts about what is important without the time and effort that manual searches require.

Ontopical Gives You a Wider Look at the World with an Insider's Edge

It’s like having a seat at the table during every important meeting.
Most opportunities are won by someone ‘in the know’, which takes years of relationship building and luck. But Ontopical brings signals of developing opportunities in municipal contracts to you. You can set alerts for specific keywords and draw insights, more quickly than ever before. You’ll finally put yourself in the best possible position to .help communities, spend less time on proposals, and win more work.



Optimize your workflow with configured alerts and searches so you spend less time researching, and more time meeting customers, completing proposals, and closing deals.

Did someone mention you in a council meeting? Have budgets changed or agenda details been released? Get alerted, capture the conversation, and learn the context without being there in person. You can filter your alerts by location, government level, time, population size, and more to make sure you get only what you need when you need it. Simply select the frequency and a combination of alerts that best keeps you ahead of the game and your competition.

Working in a team? Quickly capitalize on—and close—emerging opportunities faster with lead sharing. 

Sometimes we find leads we need to share or want other team members’ input on, but how do we quickly share the context AND details without creating additional work? Your alerts will search millions of documents and find what you are looking for quickly by highlighting the sections that triggered the alert. Ontopical allows you to share these alert highlights with team members when you qualify or assign the leads.

Here's What You Can Do with Ontopical on Your Side
