San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Small business owners across America searching for help on SBA.gov will find a new free business intelligence tool to “size up” their business against the competition at http://www.sba.gov/sizeup. SizeUp helps businesses succeed by making it as simple as a mouse click to access highly specific data on every industry and geographic region – including revenues, salaries, health insurance costs, supplier locations, and more.
Specifically, SizeUp super crunches millions of data points from both public and private sources to provide three core features:
1. Map of the competition: Business owners can map where competitors, customers, and suppliers are located, and can use the map to isolate areas with many potential customers but little competition.
2. Benchmark a specific business: Entrepreneurs can see how their business "sizes up" by comparing their performance to all competitors in the industry.
3. Find the best places to advertise: Business owners can identify areas with the highest revenue for an industry, the most underserved markets, and can create custom demographic and business reports.
“SizeUp empowers businesses to make smarter choices by providing many of the same demographic, industry, business, geographic, competitiveness, and cost-of-business data that huge corporations use every day,” said SizeUp’s CEO, Anatalio Ubalde. “We’re pleased that SizeUp can now help over a million small businesses that visit SBA.gov each month.”
SizeUp launched in late 2011 as a TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield finalist, and was selected as a Top 10 Data Startup at the Data 2.0 Summit in 2012.
