For small businesses in need of business intelligence and competitive analysis, there is a new free business tool available that can provide information once available only to those companies with big budgets. When it comes to business intelligence and competitive analysis, large businesses hire consultants and employ in-house analysts to help determine where a business should be operating, how to compete, how to grow and more. But what about small businesses? According to the SBA, more than 99% of the businesses in the US are small businesses. TechCrunch Disrupt startup Size Up enables business owners to evaluate their competitiveness and make decisions that will help them increase revenue and save money.
SizeUp provides many of the same demographic, industry, geographic, business, and cost data that big businesses use to make smarter decisions, but provides it to all companies at no cost to the end-user. And the company uses a Mint-like data analysis amongst platform users so businesses can see how the stack up against similar companies and competition. For more information, go to: www.sizeup.com
